This one takes me back!
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Have you ever written any fan-fiction? If yes, why and for which book(s)? If no, would you like to and for which books(s)?
For that matter, do you ever read fan-fiction?
I have written fanfiction! My first attempt was when I was in middle school. It was for Harry Potter, of course. I never finished that story, come to think of it.
My junior year of high school, I wrote a short story for school that was based on the style of The Princess Diaries. Around the same time, I discovered the Draco Trilogy and FictionAlley, and it was all over. I never wrote HP fanfiction again, but I read it like crazy until I graduated from high school.
Sometime after I started college, I stopped reading, and I have never gone back. I was heartbroken when Cassandra Claire got a real publishing deal, dropped the “I” from her pseudonym, and took the Draco Trilogy offline. I still won’t read her books out of resentment. I had a good run with fanfiction (or “fic”) back in the day, but that’s over now.
