    Doesn't mean it isn't crap. Plenty of people have bad taste out there; that's hardly limited to fanfiction. xD

    ...Which reminds me, I need to sign up for Soompi. But god no. At least let JJ be with a hawt friend like Junsu or Yunho or Yoochun...

    =P

    Nah, I kid. I only support fake homosexuality when they're getting paid to do it, like the men who work for Johnny's Entertainment.

    I don't read fanfiction, I never will, but I have read some reviews and opinions and the general problem seems to be that these people just write whatever shit happens to be clogging their minds at the moment. A decent writer is one that is able to take an objective view on their ideas and feasibly work it into the existing story and setting. Creative license has a limit, Harry Potter is not going to mystically make a spell more powerful than Avada Cadavra (SP?), Ron is unlikely to be the decendant of the most powerful evil magician in the universe, Aeris is never going to come back to life and Sasuke is not going to turn good and save the world by killing Naruto (unless of course the author of Naruto does one hell of a U-turn).

    Cloud will never have a gay threesome with Sephiroth and Zack.


    Basically a good writer is someone who can take an existing story and build on it in a feasable way that fits with the characters and theme.

    And no I have not read those examples, I made them up.

    But I'm sure they exist somewhere.

    Actually, there is a positive side to it. Very few people would be willing to read some random original fiction that some random person wrote - or at least I wouldn't, anyway. The chance that it'll actually be worth reading is very slim. On the other hand, people do like reading (well-written) adventures about existing characters that just didn't happen in the original story... although the best ones, as 98 said, aren't completely out there. By writing stuff that people will actually read, the writer can get feedback on their work: their characterization, writing style, anything else they may need to improve on... and then they have an advantage should they wish to write anything original in the future. At least, that's what I've recognized from feedback I've received (although saying "Constructive criticism PLEASE" might help that).

    Of course, there are morons out there who say they'll refuse to write anything if they get negative reviews. Of course, I give bad reviews. They shouldn't be writing anyway.

    (Also, censorship is good. =D It's like saying pictures of ugly people should be banned from the internet except for trolling...)

    You'd still be there mojo. :P

    But I don't like fan-fiction in general. A good writer can build on their own ideas, not steal someone else's. Although I'll agree that there are some well-written examples of creative theft(fan-fiction), they are very few and far between. Also, as CPR said opinions differ. While someone might find something well-written,developed, intriguing and oh so delightful, another person might think it worse than puppy-killers....unless that person is abaile.........

    I love Steal! <3

    The purpose fanfiction serves is to continue the series when the original work has been completed, so fans of the original work can have something to look forward to other than debate, ad infinitum, "did X really _____ Y".

    That said, I think I've only read one really well written one. It was a novel length Battle Royale fanfic...or something. I don't really remember.
