Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The True Fan

OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.

You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.

You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

So.... where does my love of non-canon pairings fit in?

I got the same thing, and my love of non-canon pairings combined with my love of reading AU doesn't seem to fit at all.

That, plus I don't like the term "true" fan, like there's only one correct and acceptable way to enjoy something.

Well, even if you do ship non-canon pairings, the way you go about it is to write very in-depth character explorations that stick to canon like glue - everything that you built Touya and Tomoyo's relationship on had solid basis in canon history. Take My Advice, to my knowledge, is the only story of yours that strayed just a little bit.

That being said, ever since I posted this quiz and consequently seen it all over my friends' journals, The True Fan is the only answer anyone has gotten. I wonder if the scoring procedure is just a little unbalanced.

I've noticed "true fan" seems to be the most common answer, too. I'll go with "not a very good quiz", as most of these tend to be.

I am very picky, though, so it got that right.

Tomouya is canon. Most people, including 3 members of CLAMP, just forgot. So is Kaho-Touya.

Guy-Nat was canon from the day they were born blonde.

Kaho/Touya is indisputably canon, but I continue to be surprised how many people refuse to acknowledge it.

Guy/Nat, like Touya/Tomoyo, transcends canon. It's so perfect that canon could never live up to the awesome.
