Why Fic is Important
It’s not easy to make it known that in addition to writing “serious” work, I also quite enjoy fanfiction. But I do. I enjoy reading it and I enjoy writing it. I enjoy exploring characters, I enjoy taking ideas that other people have developed and playing with them, and I enjoy saying “wait, why not this?!”
Fanfiction is FUN and I hope that someday, writers take my characters and make up fic for their own purposes. It is not a world to make money, it is a world to simply explore.
