I think a big part of why I read way more fanfiction than books is that there’s just a hell of a lot less exposition
the first 10 pages of most books are always “these are the main characters and here’s some background on each of them and this is the setting etc etc” and it’s such a fucking hassle getting to the plot sometimes
fanfic is just like “fuck it you know all of this already let’s go”

It seems enormously patronizing to me. Just the sort of annoying tune you’d have playing in your themed park, I daresay. All giddy and carefree, encouraging children to face the world unarmed.
