This is probably already up and you know about it, but
just in case: Time Magazine's website has a "Time Art" section and currently, there's an article on fanfiction by Lev Grossman. It's an excellent article, one of the best I've ever read from the mainstream and truly understands the issues surrounding things like copyright. BUT my favorite line in the article? This, regarding the darker side of fanfiction: "Responsible writers of explicit fan fiction add warnings to their stories."

At least one Time writer feels that it's the 'responsible' writers who warn. *BG*

Gee, did I just start the warning debate again? Nah. But the article is excellent, so I highly recommend reading it!

I thought the article was really excellent. He actually solicited input from writers on LJ. Starwatcher linked to the community - can't recall it right now. He made some great points. It's well worth reading.

Sorry. Since your LJ is allowed on that filter, I thought your DW would be automatically included. Silly me. I think it's fixed; try now.
