I don't think I have ever been so blind-sided by an author's politics in their fic as I am right now. I was just reading a random Harry/Jacob Black fic, and it was perfectly unoffensive, weird/cute/funny, whatever, until I got to the last half of the last chapter (except the epilogue) - when I read this:

Yeah, gay people - If you really want to get married why don't you just move to another country!?

That was only one of the polite opinions expressed. It's just a giant clusterfuck. I know that authors sometimes have to write outside of their own beliefs for their characters, but I see absolutely no reason, unless these are the views of the author, for Harry and Jacob to get into this absolutely random and unnecessary conversation.

Then, of course, there is a statement in the author's profile condemning homophobia.
