Yes, fanworks are illegal: harsh truths about copyright & Fair Use.
I’m writing this post because fanfiction is a buzzword again, thanks to the publication of “Grey” by E. L. James–or, more specifically, the Twitter debacle that was #AskELJames, which included tweets slamming fanfiction in general. I’ve seen several posts from authors defending fanfiction in response to such tweets–and fanfiction very well should be defended–but I’m also disheartened to see that many well-intentioned people misunderstand the legalities of fanfiction and the Fair Use clause, and are shooting incorrect information out there into the world.I’m writing this post because fanfiction is a buzzword again, thanks to the publication of “Grey” by E.

A guide to fanfiction for people who can't stop getting it wrong
What is fanfiction? That’s the question magazine articles and TV segments have been attempting to answer for upwards of 40 years now, usually without doing much actual research into the topic.

Maybe this was a valid question back when folks were still sliding Kirk/Spock zines under the tables at Star Trek conventions, but in the era of Fifty Shades of Grey (look, we had to namecheck it at some point) and Amazon’s licensed, for-profit fanfic publishing service, you’d think that fanfic explainer articles would be on the way out.

Vampire Diaries cast reads fanfiction -- VIDEO | PopWatch | EW.com
When we visited the Atlanta set of the series a couple of months ago, we asked the cast to read some colorful fan-written stories about their characters. Of course, we didn’t just serve up the usual Delena/Stelena fare (you can get your fill of that when the show returns next year). Instead, we scoured the Web for fanfics dedicated to the show’s most under-served (read: non-existent) pairings, like say Elena and Alaric (R.I.P) or Caroline and Rebekah (shippers, we know you’re out there!).

Watch the video below to see Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Michael Trevino read fanfiction (while trying very hard to keep a straight face).

bdsm_bigbang - Profile
Welcome to BDSM BigBang - where you can write all about BDSM!

The main focus is that you write in any fandom (movies, television or books and many more...)
or in any RPF fandom (bandom, celebrities, etc) with BDSM as the main theme.

BDSM can be many things: roleplays, kink, D/s, puppy play, M/s, spanking, collar & leash and many more!

However you can't write a 7,000 words with fluff, angst or whatever with a small mention of BDSM.
The BDSM theme must be the main focus of your Bang stories.

Going Pro 101: The Slasher’s Guide To Converting Fanfic To Original Fiction or Origifying FanFiction (OFF)
This article was originally written in 2007, but given the popularity of “Twlight” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” that began life as fanfic, I thought I’d make it available once again. I’ve done a cursory “update,” but most of the steps are still relevant. Good luck.

A List of Published Fiction Containing Illegal Sexual Activities
The purpose of this list of illegal sex acts in published fiction is to provide a starting point for thinking aout the representation of transgressive sex in literature -- and how to integrate fanfic into those discussions. Fandom is an *artistic community*, and we need to tie issues of fanfiction into those of broader literary and artistic concerns, which will be of paramount importance in making our case: this not simply about suppressing a bunch of Harry Potter perverts, but cuts at the very heart of our concepts of literary and artistic freedom.

Making Light: "Fanfic": force of nature
In a purely literary sense, fanfic doesn’t exist. There is only fiction. Fanfic is a legal category created by the modern system of trademarks and copyrights. Putting that label on a work of fiction says nothing about its quality, its creativity, or the intent of the writer who created it.

nihilistic_kid: George R. R. Martin is wrong about Lovecraft
"In some tilt against the windmill of fan fiction, George R. R. Martin makes the false claim that [H.P. Lovecraft] let so many others play in his sandbox, he essentially lost control of his own creations...[and] Those copyrights are ultimately all that separates an [Edgar Rice Burroughs] from a HPL.

Martin is wrong about many other facts in that post—copyrights do not need to be defended to be maintained, that's trademark—but he is gloriously wrong about Lovecraft."

The Rec Room
It's past time for a community where people could go when they had an itch for a certain fic subgenre or a certain pairing or whatever, and *request* some recs that would scratch that itch. And where people who'd read a particular fic and then lost it but wanted to reread it (especially those elusive WsIP), could ask for some help finding the story again.

So I created it.

Multi-fandom, open membership, every style, every genre, every fandom, every pairing, you think of it, it's okay. I just ask that people play nice and stay generally on-topic.
