And it all comes down to this...  
I noticed recently that the number of problems in terms of behavior and perspectives in the SasuHina fandom has exploded, and that there hasn't been much done about this particular. Here's to something that I hope can counter that.

What I'm thinking of is making this particular post as a long list of whatever that is not acceptable that is used in SasuHina fanfics and fanart (cliches, overused plots, out-of-character behavior), and how they can be broken or twisted into something new.

So, is anyone up for it? I'll start with the obvious ones:

Canon Storyline Cliche Plots:

The Arranged Marriage- Sasuke and Hinata are binded in a marriage contract from the past.

Alternate Universe Cliche Plots: (remember, if written well, cliches can be turned into something original)

Vampire/Supernatural AU- Usually Sasuke as the vampire and Hinata as an "innocent" human

The High School AU- Sasuke as the top guy and Hinata as the shy girl.

Out of Character Behavior:

Sasuke is sexually attracted to Hinata's looks and attributes.

Hinata hates Sasuke and he chases after her for it. They fall in love.

Love at first glance (basically, Sasuke notices how beautiful Hinata is and vice versa and they get together).

Bad Themes:

Darkness and Light (Sasuke being Darkness, Hinata being the Light)

Fairy tale romance

Feel free to add to the list or add another category, and it would be nice to provide advice. :)

Somebody answered! :D Yay!

Anyways, ahem...yeah, that is definitely another one. I guess I kinda forgot about that sort. ^^;

Thanks for the contribution. I will definitely put this one up!

Not a problem. I noticed the community when doing a SasuHina search and I have the exact same pet peeves regarding fanfiction.

If I had the talent I'd write plausible Narutoverse fics myself. Alas. I stick to fanart.
