I get thrown out of kidfic when I hate the children's names

YES. It totally drives me crazy when I don't like the children's names

Kidfic? You actually read kidfic, and what you're complaining about is names?

It doesn't really bother me either way

In m/m kidfic, I've noticed a correlation between awful OC names and the bashing or demonization of the actual mothers of the children

Yes. Which makes sense, because they're both a product of bad writing and/or immature fangirlishness

I hadn't before, but now that you mention it....

No; they're two independent--albeit irritating--phenomena

Once again, I must ask: you actually read kidfic? And then complain about it being bad? *Shakes head*

Hee! Sometimes I'm just in the mood for domestic schmoop. But apparently I am picky about my domestic schmoop.

Huh. I don't know that I've ever hated the kids' names. There was one I read last week where they had weird names, but they did joke about it in the story.

Well, I don't mind weird names if they seem to make plot or character sense, but I guess I'm just picky about OC names in general.

See..it's not the names that get me. It's the uebersmart obnoxiously smarmy and precocious brats.

SGA's notorious...6 year old solving the problems of the universe, no problem; 3 year old correcting multiple PhDs in the field, regularly. Hits head repeatedly!!!

Oh, yeah, I've read a couple SGA fics like that. I can see how repeated examples would drive a person batty.
