Don't you hate it...

...when you're reading a WIP fanfic that's being posted, and around the time part 29 is posted you realise you don't like the fic, don't like the writers charactisations, don't even like the plot, but you're too far into the fic to just stop reading. (Wow. That was a long sentence. Sorry about that.)

That's what's happening to me right now. (I'm not going to name the fandom, but if you think I'm talking about your fic, I"m not).

Everything I don't like in a fic is happening in this particular fic, but I'm now too committed to the story to just stop. I've wasted spent too much time reading what's already been posted to not know how it ends. The fic wasn't going that badly in the first 15 parts or so. Sure, there were some glaringly large plot holes that would have blown the fic straight out of the water due to some small rather large details already covered in well-known canon, but hey - I'm a forgiving person.

But now the fic is starting to make my eyes bleed; and I can't stop reaading it.

Please, send help.
