Poll: IS THERE A PLACE FOR FANFICTION OF FANFICTION? After seeing so many great stories fall victim to Real Life and abandoned for years, I got to wondering: Is there a place for fanfiction of the fanfiction? In other words, what if SOMEONE attempted to finish these stories in the style and assumed intent of the original author. The idea being that these new writers would not be trying to "steal" the story or its ideas, but to honor it in the same way we honor Jane. What do you think? Vote Now!
Author has written 3 stories for Pride and Prejudice.
I am a HUGE lover of Pride and Prejudice fanfic -- I don't write it, I just love to read it. I really just stumbled into fanfic completely by accident, and I'm so glad I did. I've been so pleasantly surprised at the quality of some of the writing here. There is a lot of talent out there and I am most happy to partake.
On me and my limerick fixation...
Thank y'all for your kind reviews and attention! This began as a self-indulgent word puzzle exercise and I never expected to entertain anyone but myself. I still don't know exactly where this is going, but I am pleased to have some friends along for the ride. :)
Who am I?
I'm not a writer: Even though I am indulging myself with some silly verse, writing is not my thing. But...
I am a grammar nerd: I mostly threw those verses up there so I would be able to beta (rules say I can't beta if I don't write). I would L O V E to help some of those great writers out there who are, shall we say, a little grammatically challenged. If I come across one more 'there/their/they're' I swear my head will explode! However...
My kids would say I'm just an all-around nerd: But then again, what are moms for if not to embarrass their children? (I'm feeling such a connection to Mrs. B right now) In addition to being a nerd and not a writer...
I'm a sculptor: Goofy limericks aside, there is nothing better than pounding on clay and making it look like something. Actually, my avatar is not really a pair of Chuck Taylor All-Stars, but a sculpture I did of my daughter's discarded sneaks on the back patio. They sat there for weeks and I just wanted to capture something that really reminded me of her and that summer.
Is there a place for fanfiction of the fanfiction?
One of the things I find unfortunate is that there are so many great stories here that have been abandoned. Many of them close to being finished, but not touched for years. After reading about a dozen of these, I got to wondering if there is a place for fanfiction of the fanfiction?
In other words, wouldn't you like to see SOMEONE give these stories a great finish, even if it is not the original writer. People who would take on such a responsibility would not be trying to "steal" the story or its ideas, but to honor it in the same way we honor Jane.
