My feelings on fan-fiction:

I used to be of ashamed of reading and writing fan-fiction. I wouldn’t tell anyone I knew in real life that I enjoyed it, or if I did I’d write it off as a guilty pleasure. These days I think it holds an important place in the world of fiction. Some works of fanfiction have stuck with me for years. Countless fics have brought me hours of entertainment. The very best touched me, used phrases that would haunt my mind for years, or changed the way I looked at the source material. A few have even inspired me.

Why write fanfic if you have actual skill as a writer? Many fanfics wouldn’t work as original works because they require some familiarity with the source material for their emotional impact. That means a non-fan wouldn’t get it, but it also means it creates a greater emotional punch for fans that already love the characters and the worlds you’re working with. Think drabbles.

Fanfiction gives wannabe writers a chance to practice their craft. They can share even their most unpolished works with an audience instead of shoving their first few efforts in a drawer or a my documents folder to collect real or imaginary dust. Yeah, ninety percent of it is still crap, but so is ninety percent of everything else. Even the lack of filters and the really, really awful stuff offer a rare opportunity to read horrible writing and understand exactly why it’s horrible. You can see what works and what doesn’t work, see which rules it’s okay to break and which rules to cling to. You can watch writers evolve.

And, you know, you get to spend more time with those characters you obsessed over. You can squee.
