Filipino Fridays 2014 #3: What do you think of fanfiction?

Apologies for the late (as in super late, we only have two hours left) post. With all the flurry of preparing for tomorrow (All Soul’s Day, Nanowrimo for some, which somehow fits our question today), it’s shameful to admit that Filipino Fridays went to the backburner.

Without further ado, here’s our question for the third (what?! Third na?!) Filipino Fridays of 2014.

Fanfiction is pretty popular, no doubt about it, but it has been received with mixed feelings by many authors and writers. Some don’t mind it, and even welcome readers who give their own spin on their work. Some writers don’t like it at all, to the point that they contact fanfiction authors to take their work down. Others use it as a jump-off point for their own writing.

How about you? What is your take on fanfiction? Do you read fanfiction, and if you do, what kind of fanfiction do you read? Do you write fanfiction, and why? Or are you against fanfiction? Enlighten us.

There is no actual deadline for your Filipino Fridays answer, especially since we’re pretty late with posting the question. Post your answers on Tumblr, Blogspot, WordPress, or any social networking site, and make sure that it’s set to public. Leave a comment here with a link to your post, and don’t forget to check out everyone else’s answers. If you don’t have a blog but still want to join in the fun, you can also answer through Twitter, Facebook, or a simple comment here.

We’d like to encourage more people to join in, so go ahead and tag a few friends when you post your answers. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #filreadercon, too.

Oh, and a happy Halloween to you all!
