Shitty series with good fanworks

ITT: anime/manga/(and in this case: visual novels) where the canonical material is absolute trash, but are saved by their healthy and creative fan communities.

Fate/Stay Night is the best example that I can think of. The anime adaptation was a pile of crap--that goes without saying, but the visual novel is awful as well. Nasu can't write. We are lucky that he has so many fanboys/girls though, who have been inspired enough by his work to provide us with high quality erotic and humorous fanart and doujinshi. I love all the characters, even if the story that they are involved with is a pile of shit. So it's nice to see them placed in other situations.
