Um. I think I'm going to use your mention of human connetion as a sounding board and say that what I mean is this: When rooting for someone like that, you do it for the emotional connection, but at the same time, unconsciously, you end up holding them to what's basically mythically unattainable standard, precisely because of the emotional connection? Holding them up to a standard that's not quantifiable, so actually much higher than what you expect of the professionals.
Which is where I see the connection with fanfiction, I think: I think readers of my ilk kind of want all fanfiction to be... mythical. To do more than just tell a story in a well-worded way? And obviously we expect that from professionals, too, but because now there's also the element of fandom community involved, it's that, square. (In the mathematical sense; I'd say it this way in Czech where it would be clearer. :D)
