It really would have helped if you had said from the getgo what sort of "wake up call" this was. You left it so that it could be just about anything.

Anyone who thinks this is a commentary about entitled fanfic writers just has a chip on their shoulder, so they're seeing everything through Bitter Fandom Goggles.
