I figured I would bring this up after someone noting me about a Sonadow high school fanfic. I have my particular reasons why I try to discourage people from posting Sonadow high school fanfics on Sonadow.com.
One of the reasons I dislike this genre so much is because (1) It seems like its all anyone knows how to write, but Sonic, while of a high school age, does NOT attend high school. Neither does Shadow. It's been tried in the Archie comics and it utterly failed.
(2) On TV, anything nowadays involves high school. I can't even watch Disney Channel anymore cause almost every show involves kids in school or high school. Some of my favorite Disney shows as a kid did not go anywhere NEAR the topic of high school. I'm so sick of the topic. Sonic was one of the few things I liked cause it had nothing to do with high school. To see these fan fics inject more high school nonsense into the series makes me steer away from the genre further. I want people to try and find more original inspiration without relying on the old high school plot as a crutch. It's old, it's done, its BORING.
