fan fiction points of view and why we shouldn't condemn PJ&co Can't Post

http://www.newstatesman.com/...-overzealous-fanbase

This involves Sherlock as an example, but is an excellent reason why "fan fiction" is MUCH older than people would think, and why we shouldn't, to quote Treebeard, be "so hasty" in condemning PJ&co for their adaptation of The Hobbit.

I found it an interesting read, and an interesting take on fan fiction that presents facts, rather than opinions.

I am a fan fiction writer, and have posted a story in fan art (along with an additional one in links in some replies). I sometimes have a hard time with how the words "fan fiction" are used derisively or with scorn to address the Hobbit movies and the additions/alterations that PJ&co did.

Hopefully this will at least aid understanding in their endeavor Smile
