New Fan Fic by TBBT78

Hey all, TBBT78, who reads the first drafts of all my chapters has a new Lenny story out.  Its called Forever Young.  I thought I would put this here, to try to gin up some support.(I will also mention it in my author's note when I publish my next chapter next Sun/Mon.  With the reader base shrinking, it's getting harder for authors to justify writing Lenny stories  these days.  So give it a look if you haven't already.

Here's the link:

Loved it too. 

We really need more Lenny stories. I wish I could write :(

Yeah,  I agree.  I can read but not write. I was always told,  people who can write should write. Those who can't write,  should read. 😄

I just love reading Lenny stories! 

And there are so few of them to find. When I go to Fanfiction.net, even if I only put in their two names in the search parameters, I still end up with some of them being Shenny stories.

This is true  There are so many Shenny stories, even smut ones which are totally distasteful as this could never have happened. That is why it is fan-fiction. But we definitely need more Lenny stories

Most definitely! Thank goodness for Tensor,  SRAM,  and the other Lenny writers that still give us great stories to read.

Yeah it's annoying, isn't it? Same thing happened to me when I started reading fan fics, I wanted L/P stories and ended up with S/ P fics and Leonard was nowhere to be seen in the stories lol so much so that i thought i wasn't using the filters right. What I do now is go to the reviews first. Learnt my lesson when i wanted to read what was tagged as a L/P fic and it turned out to be a  Shenny one. It was intended to be a Penny story actually . The author wasn't happy with P's pregnancy , which is fair enough and by the end of the story Penny is still pregnant but decides to raise the child with Sheldon ( who has dumped Amy in the meantime lol ) and it's all okay because that's what Leonard woud have wanted. It's wild.

So many of these Shenny see Sheldon as the perfect match for Penny. But as he is written in canon, he's not. To make the relationship work in these stories they have to change the character. So it's not really Sheldon in those stories. There was one I read that said Sheldon only told Amy he loved her in "The Prom Equivalency", because he thought that's what she wanted to hear. Not because he really felt it. Well, you know what, canon Sheldon is not supposed to be able to lie without twitching.

Anything is possible when you ignore canon, Sheldon can fall in love with penny or become a geologist, that's the beauty of fiction I guess lol . 

Most of these S/P stories are nothing but wishful thinking anyway. They didn't get what they wanted in the show so they have to compensate in writing. Nothing wrong with that, just label your story clearly as a Shenny and don't mislead the readers is all i'm asking really. 

Also one thing I don't get is how Sheldon woud be the perfect match for Penny when we know one of her insecurities, in canon, is that she thinks she's not smart enough for Leonard. Wouldn't it be the same if she were with Sheldon , who again in canon, is smarter than Leonard.?

How does that work ?

To the Shenny writers the part that Sheldon is smarter is overlooked. But,  it's fiction, so they write their stories  overlooking that fact. Then they have to conform Penny and Sheldon's character traits to fit their stories. Not to mention bash Leonard and Amy. I agree that they can write what they want to write. Just please tell us in the description that it's a Shenny story.

If you all want to read more Lenny stories you can go to  Leonard Hofstadter-Penny Works  Archive of our own.com   They have a little more Lenny stories than in fan-fiction.com  not as many as we would like but more nonetheless

Another thing in that story I mentioned in my earlier post that was based on "The Prom Equivalency", the writer stated through his/her dialogue for Penny or Sheldon that Penny only said yes to Leonard's proposal because he kept pressuring her into it. Um, no. He stopped proposing to her after the disastrous Valentine's episode and said she could propose to him when she was ready. The first time she proposed she was drunk because of her part in NCIS being cut and the fall out of that. He didn't accept then and I believe rightly so. The second time after she got fired from Serial Ape-ist 2. He hesitated but she convinced him it was for the right reasons. They both already agreed they were engaged before he got the ring out of his wallet and did the traditional proposal.

Another story by the same writer had Beverly 🙄do an intervention for Sheldon/Penny by pointing out all the ways Leonard/Amy were manipulating them. Rolling my eyes right now. In this story Beverly said Penny was drinking more since she was involved with Leonard. I don't think that's true. She's was always a heavy drinker. The episode that was Beverly's first appearance, Penny was already getting wasted before Leonard came over and they started taking tequila shots. The story implied he took advantage of her in her drunken state. She's the one that sprinkled the salt on her neck and hid the lime in her mouth to invite a make-out session.

I agree totally.

that's another staple of S/P fanfics, Amy and Leonard are emotional abusers and they enable Penny's drinking problem , don't you know that Penny and Sheldon are victims who married their captors? I mean , there are many things you can dislike in the canon pairings but to have such a twisted view of them is quite baffling.

I don't read much fan/fic and would never read a Shenny story. 

It is not difficult to imagine the delusional thought processes of Shenny writers. They were on this forum during the Shenny wars and some of their logic(?) was mind boggling. That they have carried their delusions into fan/fic is not surprising.
