nayrt but...

Because "good writing" by original fiction standards involves crafting the building blocks for the story and then crafting the story from those blocks, while "good" fanfic writing is free to skip over a large chunk of the first step and move right on to the second.

IMO, this rather leads back to ayrt's point about the implication that "fanfic standards" are, shall we say, less rigorous than original fiction standards. So saying that something is "honestly pretty excellent, at least by fanfic standards" still sounds like a huge (and necessary!) qualifier to me.

I don't know about AYRT, but when I'm talking about how well written fic is I always make sure to clarify that I'm measuring it by fanfic standards. Whether I'm speaking about the best fic I've ever read, or a fic that I didn't like. I just think it's a qualification that needs to be made in order for everyone to know exactly how the work is being evaluated. And I do this for exactly the reasons that AYRT underlined in their comment. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. But having read the fic AYRT is defending, I'm definitely inclined to agree with them that it's a well written fic. Not the best Sherlock fanfic I've read or anything, but definitely one that deserved its ample popularity.
