We just couldn’t get enough of talking about fanfiction, so we have a little companion piece to accompany the core episode discussing our thoughts on the particular stories we read. You don’t have to have read the stories to understand what we’re talking about, and our topics of discussion also include problematic ships, the importance of fantasy, and the strangeness of reading fic for a fandom you’re not part of. It’s interesting stuff, we promise.
We’re back with episode 30, and this time we’re discussing fanfiction! What is it? Why do we read it? What does it do that mainstream media doesn’t? What’s the deal with high school AUs? Is it disrespectful to professional writers? All this, plus excited shouting over Cullen, trash barges, and musing on present tense.
