Response to another Anti-Fanfic discussion...
A couple of people on my friends list pointed out this fanfic discussion, to which I have just replied. I include my response below, but I want to mention just how ironic it appears to be that, if I am reading the site correctly, the person in question is an author... of tie-in novels, which are nothing more or less than paid fanfic.

Note that I have *nothing* against tie-in novels; some of my favorite books were tie-ins (e.g., The Final Reflection), and I have several tie-in ideas I'd love to do (a novelization of Chrono Trigger, a particular Conan story, etc.). But I think anyone who writes a tie-in novel and then goes and tries to talk about how terrible fanfic writers are needs to understand three words: Pot. Kettle. Black.

Ah. That felt good.
Thanks and a promotion to my Loyal Minion!
I hereby promote Shana from Loyal Minion to Trusted Lieutenant. She has shown the proper energy and slavish devotion to achieve this exalted level. She just sent us some lovely clothes for Vicky, and a large assortment of Space Opera star atlases, including two which I've been trying to find for quite a while. Good work and there's a proper dukedom or something in your future once the plans of conquest move forward. :)
And another...
... comment I wrote in response in the same dialogue, this addressing a couple of commenters bringing up issues of "respect" and of law (one quoting tons of law). Unfortunately for some reason my reply was posted twice, but I don't know how to remove it from the other blog.
