Default time july 18

There was a wonderful article about the history of fan fiction in the July 18, 2011, issue of Time Magazine. It was mainly about Harry Potter fandom, but the article mentions a little of everything. I haven't searched for the article online, but I am sure you can easily find the magazine on newsstands.

Thanks for this. Good article. I especially liked this bit which has been discussed at length at BSG sites, usually by two separate points of view.

"Do characters belong to the person who created them? Or to the fans who love them so passionately that they spend their nights and weekends laboring to extend those characters' lives, for free? There's a division here, a geological fault line, that looks small on the surface but runs deep into our culture, and the tectonic plates are only moving farther apart. Is art about making up new things or about transforming the raw material that's out there? Cutting, pasting, sampling, remixing and mashing up have become mainstream modes of cultural expression, and fan fiction is part of that. It challenges just about everything we thought we knew about art and creativity."

The only part that "belongs' to the creator is the profit aspect. What we do here, we do for the love of the characters/situations/et al.
Just my two quantums worth.

I've elected not to mention it to him. I'll wait for him to notice.
