tortietta: (In Memory NA -- _kissyfish)
[ profile] nocturne_alley you have broken me. I have spent the day on the edge tears trying fearfully not to check for updates and failing.

There are no words to express my heartache at what has happened. It feels like a part of me has been wrenched out and I'm never going to get that part back.

To the players I thank each and everyone of you, and my heart aches for you. I honestly cannot remember a time where I felt this torn apart by the actions of a few simple characters. Never have I been continually on the edge of tears when reading a book or watching a movie, but NA, you have done this to me, and I admire the hard work that everyone has done.

If this is the end for [ profile] nocturne_alley then I cannot see a more fitting end nor a more fitting way to honour the characters.

I had time to kill this afternoon so I thought I'd challenge myself with a [ profile] 15minuteficlets ficlet. Written in twenty-two minutes:

It's late and really not the ideal time to get into a discussion on original fiction vs. fanfiction, but I was talking with [ profile] mockreality who brought up some interesting points about what you get out of writing original fiction instead of fanfiction. I don't actually agree with her POV, but it did make me think about what I get out of writing fanfiction as well as original fiction.

C/p'd with permission from a tired [ profile] mockreality. SPAG and incoherancy to be ignored. :">

[ profile] maevy: so i have a hankering to write a novel length hp fic... haven't had an urge to do that in a long time....

[ profile] mockreality: why dont you just write something non hp... you know? if i didnt always have uni work to do, that's what i would do... and indeed tried to over the xmas holidays. i don't, i never have understood the whole reasoning why someone wants to write fics of hp or fanfics in general.. i tried once or twice, but that is someone elses idea, someone elses imagination you are taping into and using their idea to, well... because you are too lazy to think of a different storyline, different characters. sure there interesting to read, but nothing like the real thing, the real experience of writing something that is uniquely yours.. something that doesn't need to comply with rules of canon.. etc. i mean i know that's what you love, and i am in no way trying to dismiss it, but i think you'd get more satisfaction of coming up with an original storyline of your own. that's me though and when i ever get to actually sit down and extend my short stories into novels that's what will make me happy, but doing and working on what someone elses hardwork seems not right.. you probably disagree with me totally, but that's your thing..

In which Maevy defends the creativity of writing fanfic, despite the fact that I am clearly brain-fried... )

Right, so the point of this post is to ask you all what you think. Why do you write fanfiction? What are your views on original fiction vs. fanfiction? I know a lot of you write original fic as well as fanfic so I'd very interested to hear all your views. So, speak up! Tell me what you think!
