One day....

One day I'm gonna do a study of AU fanfic  summaries, just to study the difference between the type of stories people want to write vs. the way the characters are used in the original work.  The contrast to me is kind of interesting.  Kagome as hooker?  InuYasha as most desirable bachelor?  Kagome as butt-kicking spy? InuYasha as teacher?

It's not a put down...it just interests me how we use characters as a short cut to tell things far from the original story.
