Do you read fanfiction? Or, do you write it? What are your thoughts on fanfic in general?
I can’t say that I’ve read very much fanfiction. I guess I’m more interested in the stories themselves, then a reading what a fan’s does with the characters and story world. I realize that the Fifty Shades series started out as a Twilight fanfiction, so that might really be the only fanfiction I’ve read, though I never read the original fanfic before it got published (and don’t really want to). I think it is fine if people want to take their favorite characters and run with them to create a new story and can see why people enjoy writing fanfiction, but I guess I don’t see why other people enjoy reading it. There’s much better official writing and stories out there just waiting to be discovered, and my TBR is long enough already.
Outside of Fangirl or Fifty Shades, I haven’t read any fanfic. It’s not that I’m opposed, it’s just that, like Julie, I just don’t have the time. Plus, I don’t even know how to actually find fanfic out there. I’m sure there are websites and all, but how do you know what’s good and worth reading? Do you read fanfic? Maybe if someone recommended something that was good, I’d take a chance and try it out.
