Good Tier stories are fics that, while I still like them, I also think they’re held back by a number of hard to ignore flaws. At this point, I will start conditionally recommending these stories. There’ll be stories on here that I think fans of romance will enjoy, but that aren’t good enough to win over people who don’t typically go looking for that genre. The same can apply for pretty much any genre or story template. Alternatively, there will also be some stories that I think are really well written, but that are held back by a specific, annoying trope or cliche. These stories are all frustrating for me, because they all had the potential for greatness, but they squandered it in one way or another. This is a pretty interesting list, and, as usual, it’s divided into complete and ongoing stories.
