I thought it might be nice to have a thread just discussing an issue of fanfic. How's that for a radical idea? Anyway, I'd been reading quite a few excellent stories, all of which seemed to summarize themselves with "So-and-so reflects on..." or "She remembers such-and-such..." or "He contemplates this-or-that..." What it got me to wondering about was, why, as fans of movies that are strongly plot-based and action based, are we as a community strongly inclined to writing internal dialogues and reflections? (I'm most certainly included in that--I tremble in fear every time I have to write an action scene, and love to zip out weird little visions and character reflections.) Anyway, I thought it might be fun to talk about something like this for once.
