Is fan fiction good or bad?
For some, fan fiction is a way to express and improve themselves but for others, it’s disrespect for their or other people’s works. Whichever side you may be on, you can’t deny that fan fiction is still literature, it’s still art — even if it’s just an attempt of it, it gives value and meaning to an art piece.
Which fandoms have the best fanfiction?
Most popular sections
Does BTS use Wattpad?
No they didn’t.
Do authors mind if you write fanfiction about their books?
Write fanfiction. They don’t mind. But for those who do mind- stop writing fanfic about their books. They might be honored, but you are not respecting those authors and their wishes. If you truly love certain books, leave them alone and show some respect to the people who made them.
Why do people read fan fiction?
Fan fiction, for many people, is just a gateway drug to all other fiction writing. We obviously have the chops to commit ourselves to long pieces of works, and the imagination to go wild with somebody else’s characters.
What is the legal situation for fan fiction writers?
This is a detailed legal situation, however for fan fiction writers, the chief concern is with derivative works. Copyright gives the author the sole right to create derivative works, basically works which use protected elements of the source material.
I think the reason people feel so comfortable mocking fan fiction authors is because we’re somehow less “real” or “legitimate” than other writers in their minds, and they don’t think we’ll take personal offense to them mocking our work.
