Plot is a literary term for "the plan, scheme, or main story of a literary or dramatic work, as a play, novel, or short story."[1] Fanfics that contain a well-developed plot are often described by readers as plotty to distinguish them from everything else.

Plot can also be used to refer a scene with fanservice. Fans may react to a scene of the hero taking off his shirt by saying, "Look at that plot!" [2]

Recycled Plots

Fans have been complaining of tired old plots and the sameness of fan fiction from almost Day One.
