There's a certain type of story plot... no, even story moral lesson that upsets me - and it's so prevalent.

It's about breaking pride.

Like, a story about someone who dealt with all her problems by herself and managed and kept working at her goals, and at the end she gets a big "Bammmm! You were wrong! You needed to ask for help!" whap. Even though 'I can do this myself' is a big motivation for doing it at all.

Or, someone who is the best at something almost never is allowed to _stay_ the best - the story just needs to teach her that everyone fucks up sooner or later.

But sometimes people _are_ the best at something, aren't they?

(and yes, it's personal in some ways. I still remember a discussion at a Russian blog where we were talking about the importance of correct grammar and spelling even in fannish/online things, and a nice and friendly person told me in a friendly way 'But everyone slips in their spelling sooner or later - you do, I do, everyone does'. I don't think she ever answered to my indignant 'I do? Where?')
