DNW. TWILIGHT FANFICTION IS NOT GREATER THAN HP.

This makes me feel very capslock'y, sorry. :(

mte. I haven't read the book yet, but it's an erotica. I tend to want less sex and more sex-less plot in my stories.

OMGuh.

I keep telling people, if they want to read poorly-written fanfiction, they can find it online for free. Hah! And yes, that would include MINE.

Thought I'd get that in there before anyone else could. *grins*

And I guess that's the whole point that ticks me off. Fanfiction is for entertainment purposes ONLY. Whether it's good or bad doesn't matter. I refuse to pay for something (even if it's the best thing I've ever read) that I could have originally gotten for free. It's stupid.

I personally think yours are good. I don't think I've read them all, but I'm sure you could put them all together in to a book of short stories and make a profit. If you wanted to jump on the fanfic gets published bandwagon.

Nope, not me. And, that's my biggest gripe with 50 Shades. It was FANFIC originally. If someone wanted to publish her, they should have contacted her and asked her to write something original. I still can't quite grasp why Stephenie Meyers isn't suing the pants off of EL James.

Fanfic works, because we are careful to state that the characters/verse belong to the original author, and that no profit is being made. When we tweak things up a wee bit and sell it for millions, clearly, a profit has been made. *shakes head*

Exactly. I would sue, but I guess since the names are changed it's okay
