OMG…well, I say a big ol’ YAY for fanfiction. Yes, I know there is a lot of dreck out there in the fanfic world. But there is a lot of dreck out there all over, so why not here? Let’s at least have equal opportunity dreck, huh?
I have heard tell that Anne Rice gets extremely nasty with folks who write fanfic with her characters…but I have also heard of plenty other authors who just don’t worry that much about it. I never cared much for Rice’s stuff anyway, so don’t really care one way or another on her; but if I were a major fan of her writing and wanted to show that by writing my own stuff, showing my excitement by using her characters and got a nasty threatening letter, it would turn me into a non-fan pretty damn quick.
I have read lots of great stuff out there, in particular my favs are Sherlock and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. What is your particular fanfiction love?
Until next time!
