Fan fiction, or fanfiction . . . is a broadly defined fan labor term for stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator.
Fanfic: Fiction written by fans as an extension of an admired work or series of works, especially a television show, often posted on the Internet or published in fanzines

Now that we understand what fanfiction is, let's discuss what fanfiction is not.
Seriously, what is so hard to comprehend about the fact that only fanfiction goes on a fanfiction site? Or that only fanfictions about miscellanous books go in a category called Miscellanous Books?
"Miscellaneous" does not mean "Original."
"Miscellaneous Books" is for fanfictions based on . . . Wait for it . . . Miscellaneous Books. Let that sink in for a moment, because that seems to be a difficult concept for some of you. "Miscellaneous Books" does not mean "Miscellaneous crap that doesn't fit anywhere else."
Now, Kiddies, let's discuss your "rights.". Please do not babble at me about Freedom of Speech or of the Press or whatever under the US Constitution. Please. You're embarassing yourself and any American with an ounce of common sense.
The people who own and operate this site have every right to set rules that govern the content of their site. Not yours. Theirs. If they decided to set a rule that all stories on this site must contain the word "hullabaloo" and a character named Buelah, and you agreed to follow that rule, they would be 100% within their rights to delete any story that violates their rule. It's not about censorship or Freedom of Anything.
Don't start yipping about the celebrities that like stories about them having orgies with their siblings. Nobody cares about "Fair Use" or whether or not you are dumb enough to believe that JK Rowling's agent gave you permission to plagiarize her work. You can argue yourself blue in the face about the legalities of this or the precedent set by that. In the end, it all comes down to the fact that you agreed to follow the rules of this site, with the understanding that your work WILL be removed if it doesn't follow those rules. Period. Full stop. End of discussion.
By the way, if you block me, I can't read OR reply to your messages.
