lliira: Fang from FF13 (Default)
This is about fiction. It's because of the romance novel I just finished reading, but I've seen it in far more than just romance novels.

Number one peeve: when someone in a "hero" role has done terrible things doesn't have to acknowledge fully how terrible those things are, and is pronounced redeemed with very little effort.

Number two peeve: when someone in a "hero" role beats himself up his whole adult life for doing terrible things, and the author keeps hinting that he's done truly terrible things, but eventually we find out he did NOTHING MORALLY WRONG WHATSOEVER. 

Come on, when the title calls the hero a "Duke of Dark Desires", I expect some kind of actual darkness he's perpetrated in the past. I am deeply unsatisfied.
