I was cruising around the internet and stumbled across this great article about fanfiction. It’s great to see fanfic being mentioned in the media and in such a great light so I just had to post it up here.

Enjoy!

Watching fan fiction is a guilty pleasure of summer

by Osizimete Aken’Ova

Fan fiction has always been one of those things that I’ve associated with disgruntled “Battlestar Galactica” nerds dissatisfied with the Starbucks’ dialogue, or 12-year-old girls fantasizing about the adventures of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask on first base.

For many years, a friend of mine has been trying to convince me to log on to www.fanfiction.net. But because I was very busy and had a life, I refused until May 23. You’re a bastard if you don’t realize this is when the last episode of “LOST” aired and the Internet broke because of fans’ angry reaction to the finale. I, too, felt the finale didn’t live up to my expectations, despite how low they were, so I did something I thought I would never do – I went to www.fanfiction.net. I was surprisingly impressed.

The website is one of the most popular sites for fans of the genre to read and publish their stories. Television fan fiction is awesome because if, like me, you hated an episode or plot thread in a television show, you can just find a new one.

Fan fiction isn’t just a chance for angry people to change the alleged mistakes their favorite writers made in their various works, but the chance to create their own stories with other peoples’ ideas. Sometimes the stories you read end up being terrible and you wish you never laid eyes on them, but most of the time you get what you expected: most of the writers aren’t professionals, but are honing their writing skills.

Slash is the raunchier side of this medium. Slash refers to a sexual relationship between two same-sex characters.For some odd reason, there is an abundance of Kirk and Spock slash out there to piss off Trekkies concerned about continuity. But I’m not into that kind of “fanfic.”

Don’t shove the website in the box of completely useless ideas; it actually has been used as a medium for up-and-coming writers to hone their skill to an audience. For instance, a few established science fiction writers, such as Marjorie M. Liu, the co-writer of Dark Wolverine and a published science fiction writer, have authored some fanfic.

No matter how you try to color it, however, it still feels like a waste of time because it isn’t exactly canon-worthy material. You have to admit you could spend more useful time reading a book or organizing your filthy, filthy life.

But it’s just so much fun.
