That's not how fiction works.
LOL that is exactly how fiction works, all you have to do for a plot is ask the right question.
Let me rephrase. That's not how fiction should work. An author should have the right to do whatever he wants with the characters at his disposal (as long as the publisher agrees). Fans shouldn't have the power to change that.
How do you manage that, writers write books, fans buy the books. If fans refuse to buy the books they don't want to read, and the publishers starts to lose money, then the publisher gets writers to write the books fans want. That is ultimate power and there is no way for you to make fans purchase what they don't want to read. No market, no books. That little utopia you think you want disappeared when publishers stopped being tax write offs and had to try to be profitable. It's all about money and has been for years.
