I don’t normally post, I tend to be a one post a year girl, I support fandom in the background by commenting, helping out occasionally as a beta, and generally just being a reader, but as a follower of Buckeye5’s Making a Scene, which is another story that may have been lost to livejournal recently I just wanted to say what I believe about fan fiction in general.
Each fan fiction story written, and posted online, is a gift, it has been written for pleasure by the writer, and posted freely so that others can enjoy it if they want, all the writer wants back is a few comments, nothing more, nothing less.
If a person doesn’t like a story, then just walk away and read something else
If everyone looked at fan fiction the same way then maybe we wouldn’t get so many abandoned stories and people leaving livejournal because they have had enough of the nasty comments and backstabbing.
There is enough bad things in the world right now as least let’s enjoy a few stories.
