The Origin of Fan Fiction
Fan Fiction Can Be Both a Compliment and an Annoyance to an Author
At the same time, fan fiction can be an annoyance to the author. Imagine spending months creating complex characters, a story world and a plot line for a novel. Imagine spending every minute thinking through the endless paths that your story could take. Imagine laboring over every word in your story to try to make it fit perfectly. Then, someone writes a fan fiction piece based on your story and he/she put the characters down a path that you never wanted your story to go. Annoyingly, the whole story line is now ruined.
