Hi, I'm Angela, I'm 22 years old, I am a graduate of Duquesne University's Nursing School and this is my personal blog. I post a wide variety of things and I almost always tag my posts so if you don't see it linked you can search the tag!

l Buffy & Angel l The Hunger Games l Percy Jackson l
l Star Wars l Pretty Little Liars l Twilight l

I also post a lot of things that are not fandom based like:
l Personal Stuff l Cats l Memes l Funny Stuff l Rants l
l Books l My Edits l
Whether it be fanfiction, original stories, drabbles, songs, poems, books, or anything that has to do with creative words, then reblog. Let’s gather all the writers of Tumblr together.
I love these guys.
I can’t even understand how an author wouldn’t understand the urge to write fanfic, create fanart. How do you even want to be an author without seeing characters and stories you like and wanting to create your own? Fanfiction is just a matter of degree.
Have you never imagined yourself into a favorite world? Have you never imagined yourself meeting a favorite character? If you have, you’ve committed fanfiction in your head. Didn’t you used to play pretend? What is the difference between thinking it and telling it to a friend? Between telling it to a friend and writing it down?
If you’re an author and you are against fanfiction, you are lying to yourself about why you even started writing fiction in the first place. None of us did this alone, all of us stand on the shoulders of giants. And sometimes we write fic about those giants.
I commit fanfiction in my head every single day lol. But never with me meeting the characters, just regular mental fanfiction.
But honestly, If I ever become a writer, I would feel like I failed in truly touching people if nobody wrote fanfiction for my book/show/whatever. I don’t understand why some writers are so against it. It breaks my heart that George R.R. Martin is one of them.
I honestly don’t understand why an author wouldn’t want someone to write fanfiction. i’d think it was an honor. Also, I think it promotes individuality and creativity. It empowers people to realize that they can write stories that other people like. And shows them that they have good ideas and skills and helps them to want to write more and practice and get better. Ever since we were in elementary school we’ve been taught (or at least I have) that coming up with ideas in your head about the things left unsaid in the book was good, expected even. that it should be done. And fanfiction is like the start of a career for some of the writers who are serious about it and aren’t just doing it for fun, but because it’s their passion. And suddenly some author is going against our instincts and the things we’ve been taught our whole lives by telling us they don’t like you writing fanfiction about their books and making people feel guilty for doing it. It’s selfish. How dare you?
You find out it might take away freedom of speech:
And then you realize that this could mean fanfiction…
I feel very pompous, I posted two fan fictions today on LiveJournal. It’s real sickening because I haven’t done the whole fan fiction thing in a long time. Maybe I will get back into it =]
