The Spirit of the Fanfic
Thursday, October 22, 2009

As everyone who reads me will know, my OC characters DO NOT belong to Joss' original series and truth be told, would probably never be written into the story. Cat is too unbelievable and Angelle...well, she's just herself. Still, I want everyone to know that my idea isn't to take away from anything Whedon has done, but rather play in a world where anything can happen.

These stories were my first real fan fic writings, something to pass the time and if you can see by my heap of comments, I really don't care how many people read them (I do really, but it sounds better this way so my readers, you know i truly love you, but making a point).

What I really want to say is let's not judge anyone based on what their opinion is and I mean this in both senses....the ones that like to keep to the story as is and those of us that like to add for the sake of something fun to do.

It does in no way take from the original storyline and if there comes a day when our Serenity flies again...ALL of US will be rejoicing no matter what happens. There is no Alliance here...just a bunch of rowdy Browncoats tipping their hats to a damn good ship and her awesomely cool crew.

Everyone shiny?!

You're everyone. As I have said before, I am here to protect the writer, no matter what she or he wants to write. (Firefly or otherwise) *goes back to working on her own WIP*

Whew, everything looks okay. I was a little worried. The fight that was had hurt people on both sides.

Since it seems safe, I'd like to expand on my earlier comments. I do think this blog post was very thoughtful. Thanks Angellemarcs.

Well, Anyway, I'm lifting a mug of Mudders Milk with Y'all.

Shiny. And I'm drinking a metaphorical Mudders' Milk to every writer, reader and fan of Firefly.

Yes, I got your intention Angellemarcs. It's a shame differences over what Fan Fiction means for other people, and the idea of OCs in general, can't be discussed though, because I think it would be really interesting. I wonder if it isn't a little disingenuous for any of us to say that Fan Fiction is 'just fun' (or any variant of that) because otherwise we wouldn't feel as strongly about it, and the characters involved, as we do. For all the people who write here, it does mean more to us than that, I think. And yes, sometimes people post things that, from my Fan Fic point of view I find hard to understand or enjoy. Sometimes it even feels that there are distinct 'camps' that co-exist without really overlapping. Maybe that's for the best, but some discussion between the camps might be - well, I've said it, interesting.

Then again, perhaps the whole 'camps' thing is only my perception. Or, even if there is some substance to that feeling, it doesn't matter, as long as the co-existence is a happy one - whatever we might think in private. *crawls off to write another chapter*

This was not to add to the mess, but to add an apology to anyone that had hurt feelings. Kind of like an..."Let's just all get along."

Yes, agreed, now let's please let this drop. I know we all still have things to say, but continuing to post about it could start another flamewar, and I didn't find the last one particularly fun.
