<Edited the thread tittle from "Why Is It?, Ed in fanfictions and other fan related stuff..." to "Why does Ed almost always get killed or hurt in Ed fanfics??" to more clearly show the topic discussion. Also, closing the thread temporarily. 02/25/07 ~Tombow>

I've noticed something...it's insanely easy to torture Ed in fanfictions and such...

I'm wondering, why is that? I write fanfictions and for some reason when every I get a story idea, Ed is almost always getting hurt or killed in some way...it's odd...

Anyway, yeah, have others noticed this? What about other characters? What other characters have you noticed seem to get hurt or have a tendency to always be followed by a dark shadow of doom?

If you mean Ed getting raped, I can relate. And Winry, Wrath and Envy seem to be raped a lot also, but...

Yeah, I see what you mean...He's just so easy to torture for some reason...Maybe because we all like weak defenseless Ed? (Personally I prefer killer Ed)

Edward is indeed very easy to torture, probably because he is the main character, and for that reason we are able to see many of his flaws (E.g. Small) and also the fact, that many people choose Roy Mustang over Edward anyday, also; people who do fanfiction often have wierd, scary minds.. So they write things like "What if Edward and Envy went out...?" or something like that.

Envy got raped by Wrath once in a fanfic...Envy raped by fangirls...and even Envy getting raped by Lust though I would kind of like Envy getting a taste of that from Lust.

Envy would decapitate Wrath before he got a chance to touch him.

Ditto with fangirls.

Lust... he'd probably find some way to get the best of her as well. He's stronger than she is. Unless he wanted her to have her way...

i don't think i've written any character deaths yet, but i'll admit, Ed seems to be the easiet one to write torture for. I guess it's because he's already been through so much, it's easy to keep giving it to him because maybe it offers mmore opportunity to him to grow as a character, maybe... or to give the people around him a chance to react. reactions are so much fun to write.

Ed.. He's the main character who has many flaws, show more emotions than other characters (which enable us to guess his character traits easily) and a lot of people like the way he reacts when someone insults him.. laugh.gif
I've never written a fanfic before, maybe I'll write one when I'm free but not about Ed..

haha... as much as i hate it when people hurt Roy, killing him off *sobs* can actually make good stories. I've actually read some good stories about Roy dying and the people left behind reflecting on what he meant to them... *cough*makes for great royai*cough*
but i hope you do write a fanfic, i wanna read it!

Good fanfics about Ed angst, or about any character angst for that matter, are rare, especially on fanfiction.net (well, finding a good fic on ff.net is very rare) and especially when it's mixed with romance (...comfort fic...*shudders*).

I once read a poem about Envy that made me go totally 'WTF'. I swear the guy was extremly emo and felt very low about his self, and I can hardly see that.

Personally, and just for the moment, I don't take any pleasure in torturing Edward and therefore don't write it. That's for the moment. I'm an angst lover.

'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

In all seriousness, I think it's easiest to kill/ torture/scare Ed because lots of people feel for him. He's got so many people who would care if he died. He's got so many people to protect...

I like dark stories, sadness and pain is interesting and more profound than happier stories sometimes. sad.gif I suppose it's all how you look at it though... But I write about Ed cause he's my favorite character laugh.gif I guess that's what you call ironic... rolleyes.gif
