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.( Collapse )
Ah. That felt good.
