What do you think of Fanfiction?: Fanfiction is pretty popular, no doubt about it, but it has been received with mixed feelings by many authors and writers. Some don’t mind it, and even welcome readers who give their own spin on their work. Some writers don’t like it at all, to the point that they contact fanfiction authors to take their work down. Others use it as a jump-off point for their own writing.
How about you? What is your take on fanfiction? Do you read fanfiction, and if you do, what kind of fanfiction do you read? Do you write fanfiction, and why? Or are you against fanfiction? Enlighten us.
To be honest, before this question, I don't have any concrete opinion about Fanfiction. I can't be against it, since I've read some of them. And I do think it's a good start for aspiring writers. On the other hand, original authors have all the rights to react against them. We are talking about their life's work here. But wasn't it also said, "imitation is the highest form of flattery"?
