Remember, your characters have to make sense.IT's THE LAW!!! Deal with it!!!
Or you will loose your Audiance.
Reality is under no such constraint
-- Fic's Law
Then we find:
Even worse, your John McCain is completely OOC. That man's a war hero, he's not going to suddenly, I don't know, campaign with a fake plumber or something, just to make your character look better. Even more ridiculous: al Qaeda endorsing McCain to show how awesome your Sue is. And I'm not even talking about Sarah Palin. The world doesn't work that way.IT IS THE LAW!!!
( from fanficrants: Dear America )
LEARN TO COPE!!!
There are not litaerary agents who can pimp this reality.
