Mind you, it took me ages to find them, and then there's only a few, but some people did see the potential and wrote the story as it should have been written in the first place.
Even AU that actually take their time to build... Then again, I don't read AH (not even for Roswell...) but don't sell the entire fandom as so cringe-inducing. 98.4% of it, yeah, but not all of it
Sorry, I should have clarified that I only read AH fanfics in Twilight (I don't really have any desire to read canon fics because I don't really care that much about the books or the canon plots/plotholes) and I only went looking for them because I wanted some new all-human stories to read and I'd heard that the Twilight fandom had a lot of stories. The problem I've found though is that the majority of the AH fanfics stay so close to the canon characterisations that I just don't find the plots all that interesting to read - the stories don't capture my attention and pull me in, instead I just find myself getting bored with them and giving up partway through (it also doesn't help that alot of the stories are basically the same plot over and over again with little variation).
