For My Own Safety

Wed Dec 28, 2011, 8:25 PM by techgnotic:icontechgnotic:














I prefaced a recent article Eye See Therefore Eye Am,
with a quote from Roy Batty, the doomed replicant (android) who was given human emotions to be able to appreciate
all the wonders of life, including the visual, but afforded only four years of
lifespan to enjoy them.










"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost
in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
—Roy Batty, Bladerunner






I thought the quote aptly expressed the bittersweetness of the eternal beauty of the
visual arts contrasted against the painfully ephemeral nature of our lives. Subsequent to
publication, a mysterious unsolicited communication arrived at dA HQ transmitted from a thus
far untraceable source.  dA technicians from our DT group believe the communication to be a
hitherto unknown audio recording of a blade runner’s “Voight-Kampff” test-interview with
Roy Batty shortly before his return to Earth from the off-world colony on which he led three
other replicants in a murderous rampage and successful escape attempt.  The “V-K” test unmasks
replicants posing as humans via their emotional responses to hypothetical questions.  There
was also a note with the “package” that, let’s just say for now, has forced me to publish this
transcript for my own safety.  dA cannot at this time guarantee the authenticity of this “Final
Testament of Roy Batty”, but the following is the transcript of that recording that I have
prepared for you, presented without further comment.


-$Techgnotic 9.20.14











Note:

“BR1138” is believed to be a “blade runner” (hunter-assassin of renegade replicants). There is
no existing record of any such blade runner agent, possibly because the event of this recording
has not yet “happened” on our space-time thread if this transmission was indeed wormholed back
through time to dA HQ for reasons unknown. “RB” is assumed to be Roy Batty after contextual
analysis of specifics of answers given to questions.













Audio BeginsInaudible/Background Noise




BR1138:

[inaudible ]—for the time being. Just answer the questions with your first thought. You don’t have to
think before answering. There are no correct answers. This is not a test. This is just a casual conversation.





RB:

I don’t understand. If I’m not being interrogated, why was I arrested? Why was I brought here?







BR1138:

You are not under arrest. You can leave at any time. But anyone wanting to board a ship back to Earth has to undergo
this … routine conversation with us … or you can’t board for Earth. Understand?





RB:

[ inaudible ]










Blade Runner - Roy Batty by Harnois75
Roy Batty by OtisFrampton









BR1138:

You see a father and his child in a public park. The child is misbehaving. The father begins striking the child. What do you feel? Do you speak or intervene in any way?





RB:

I witnessed no such thing in any park.








BR1138:

These questions are hypothetical … make believe. Just answer them with your first thoughts.





RB:

So much in life to do, so many places to be, so much more to know – to see! … and you want to waste my time with this, with games. I don’t –




















BR1138:

Just answer my questions or there will be no boarding pass.





RB:

[ inaudible ] Proceed.








BR1138:

You see two men standing on a hill. They are watching the sun set. You join them. One man begins taking pictures of the sunset with his camera. This angers the other man and he smashes the camera. The two men begin fighting. Which man do you help?





RB:

Neither.

BR1138:

You would do nothing?





RB:

I would continue watching the beautiful sunset.








BR1138:

I didn’t say the sunset was beautiful.





RB:

They are beautiful.








BR1138:

The two men are fighting –





RB:

One man wants to experience the sunset as a sacred moment. One man wants to preserve the moment in a photograph to help him remember it again and again. So they fight. I understand. Neither is right. Neither is wrong.








BR1138:

So you do nothing. That’s your first thought?





RB:

My first thought is I want to know what the sunsets on Earth look like.

BR1138:

Alright… You are told by a doctor that you have an incurable cancer and you only have another six months to live. You must make a choice. Do you stay in the hospital to undergo painful procedures in an attempt to prolong your life or do you go home to enjoy as much as possible what little time you have left?





RB:

[ inaudible ] [ scraping sounds; possibly chair legs on floor ]







BR1138:

Do you stay or do you go? Answer the question please.





RB:

My first thought is I don’t like to be taunted – especially by someone like you.





















BR1138:

It’s a hypothetical –





RB:

Liar! It is a question designed for me! You ARE testing me, but in a very cruel, deceitful manner! I don’t like it!








BR1138:

Calm down or I’ll have to call the guards –





RB:

Why?! Is it now you who suddenly doesn’t want to continue our casual conversation?!













Roy Batty by jaimecastro
















BR1138:

Guards!


[ sounds of violent struggle, followed by one man’s (probably BR1138) labored, rasping breathing ]


[ The audio becomes very weak here, as if the recording microphone has been displaced to some distance from the speakers, possibly as result of violent struggle. ]





RB:

Here’s my first thought: I think your job is to enforce limits on unhappy people who have already been cruelly limited by the circumstances of their lives – and I think you enjoy your job.









BR1138:

You don’t know— [ inaudible ]





RB:

No! Now it’s my turn to ask questions! How would you feel if you had a ticking time clock inside you that had been set – set by another man – to stop in a very short amount of time? And you don’t know if you have a few more years or months or days to live your life? Or is it only minutes? How long do you have left to try to experience all the joys and wonders of life that other men take for granted?











:thumb245093755:
Roy Batty by spiderdijon










BR1138:

[ rasping, guttural choking noises ]





RB:

Tick tock! Tick tock! Tick tock! How much time do you have left? And how do you spend this precious time?! By touching, feeling, learning, seeing?! By knowing more of what there is to know?! Or by policing other people’s hopes and dreams – deciding who gets to see what, know what, go where? What’s your first thought, policeman?


[ sounds of struggle, possibly heels of shoes kicking on floor ]


RB:

The question is not hypothetical … at least not for you
























BR1138:

[ more guttural choking sounds ]





RB:

Tick tock. Tick tock. The tester is tested… And he has failed.


[ sound of a loud SNAP – which dA forensics specialists have determined to most probably be the sound of both pedicles of BR1138’s cervical axis (C2) vertebra being broken, commonly known as “the hangman’s fracture” ]


RB:

Time must be for those who honor it… by cherishing it. [ inaudible ] So I must be going. If only for one more sunset…


[ garbled sounds of men yelling, violent struggle, doors slamming, and handguns being discharged ]

Announcing The Fan Fiction Article





Fan art and fan fiction, like the offering above, are a blast because artists get to wear their favorite
stories; in my case the iconic "Blade Runner." Fan fiction and art are the new fashion.


“Once Upon A Time” is a new episodic, fantasy, fairy tale genre-blending mash-up written by Adam Horowitz
and Edward Kitsis featuring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison.  Also set for a make-over is Snow White,
as re-imagined by Universal (she acquires a Huntsman) for release this summer. These new retellings and others
like them has had me thinking a lot about the history, significance, and placement of Fan Fiction in popular
culture as well as it’s unique rise in popularity, quality and influence over the last decade. As True Blood
strives to leave no stone unturned from the hallowed syllabus of monsters, supernatural genre characters and
story mechanisms of the last 100 years, I feel called to reflect on where all of this started and how it got
to where it is today.



And I’d like your help.









Consider this a call to action for your ideas and feedback on what you think should be covered in this upcoming
article. Which aspects of Fan Fiction are most important and who might be the best deviants to interview in our
fan fiction community? Which groups are the last word in strong quality fan fiction?  As a fan of fan fiction,
I want to really do this one right!


By the way, Belgerum does a Pirate-tinged narration of Luke crashing his X-wing into the Hundred
Acre Wood and it is still one of my favorite fan fic mash up ideas I have come across traversing the digital
planes of deviantART.


I have recruited the magical Heidi to bring perspective, expertise, research consulting and overall
guidance to the construction of this article.  We are looking forward to bringing you the most comprehensive overview
of fan fiction the world has ever known.  









Some Quick Questions:

  1. What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction?  And what is the most dreadful?
  2. When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
    • a.) Horrified!
    • b.) Amused
    • c.) Angry!
    • d.) Confused
    • e.) Jealous that you hadn’t thought of it sooner
    • f.) Happy to have fellow devotees of your “guilty pleasure”
    • g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction?

  3. Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
  4. Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?




Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:


  • a.) A homage
  • b.) Insulting graffiti
  • c.) Good clean fun
  • d.) Brilliant, career launching platform

...showcasing our most promising young writers here on deviantART.

1. Very well-written fanfics are the best and also that the writers can improve themselves by writing and reading fanfics. That's how I'm so good at writing stories nowadays. The most dreadful are those, which seemingly have no sense in them and the writer has put no effort on it.
2. I think it was g.
3. I dunno. It kinda feels like there's fanfics about everything.
4. I have no idea. Maybe some very good Star Wars fanfics? Or maybe SW's Expanded Universe counts nowadays?

And as of bottom line, a and d. Some real bad fanfics (possibly made just to insult the series) could be considered b.

1. the most wonder thing about Fanfiction is that it widens the persons creative ability to write freely, but the down side can be some really rank fics.
2. G, I hadn't realized that it was a real thing before. and it gave me a reason to write and read more.
3. I don't know of any fandom that hasn't had some fanfic wrote about it, the one thing I do find is that many don't do Silmarillion crossovers much. it is perfect for crossing.
4. Maitimo and Findekano by Oshun, so good, and a multi crossover Chance Encounter by Telcontar Rulz or Mordaen, depending on which site you're on.
Bottom line Fanfiction is A,C,and D. I love fanfiction and as long as there a sites to publish and read them on, and people willing to write their most secret thoughts and desires, there will always be fanfiction.

Of all the journals I keep getting from this Techgnotic person, why didn't I get sent this one? It's probably the one I have the greatest insight on. More of this, please!

1) The most wonderful aspect of fanfiction is that it keeps a series alive and relevant, if only in the mind of fans. It's similar to a Doom or Quake mod. Sure, there was Doom 3 and Resurrection of Evil... but nobody plays those anymore. What are they playing? Game mods of the old '95 Doom engine.

The most horrible is, IMHO, slash fiction. I don't know if "slash fic" even has an official definition, but what I'm referring to are when straight, ambiguous, or even asexual characters are made gay in order to cater to a fetish. Harry Potter and Supernatural fangirls, I'm looking at you...

2) The first fanfiction I ever came across that called itself a fanfiction was a Yugioh fanfic entitled "What If". And I swear, if I had a nickel for every fanfic with that title... Anyway, it was a script fic (it's hard to do a Yugioh fic in prose, trust me) and it expounded on what a lot of characters' decks might look like if they were spruced up enough to operate in the meta of its writing. Though I wouldn't call them fanfics, I was inspired to do a similar kind of thing where I write out a duel between other fictional characters, even at times giving them entirely fictional decks. (One such deck, the "Mugen" archetype, involves monsters with a bunch of super-OP effects hampered by the fact that they negate their own effects unless some other card effect or condition 'unlocks' them.) There's no dialogue, character interaction, or anything of the sort. I just list every player's moves and let their personality shine through their play style. It's a very intriguing character exercise, though newbies to the practice often have to get past the problem of every female character using Dark Magician Girl with the only logical reasoning being "4 teh bewbz". I call this exercise "Yugioh Fantasy", as it operates on what I presume to be a similar premise to fantasy football. I still do this at times, though I'm more prone to use homemade archetype as opposed to the uncreative OP crap that Konami keeps churning out.

So if I had to say... probably inspired.

3) There isn't any fandom without fanfic love, or at least none that I can think of. Probably a better question is "can you think of a fandom that could do with some good fanfiction", what with Sturgeon's Law and all. To that, I'd say... *shrugs* I dunno, Code Geass I guess. What would actually be really interesting is if a fanfic author decided to rewrite Twilight to trim the stupid stuff and replace it with something more sensible. An idea batted around is a rehash wherein Bella's characterization isn't changed at all, but is merely resold as something of a Shakesperian villain.

4) "Extended"? As in fanfictions of fanfiction? Well, I've considered doing similar things myself (see "Chaos Card Captor Torika"), but such attempts sadly didn't get very far. Besides that, there's a problem with how this particular question is set up.

The problem with stating a fanfic to be superior to its source is that the original source often dies out, gets cancelled, or the fans just grow out of it. To this I cite Cardcaptor Sakura. It's basically a legendary series for its nostalgia and how it put CLAMP on the map by itself. But try talking about it today. I did a search a little while ago, and the only active forums remaining are still batting around the same questions I debated over in my heyday: Is Tsbuasa canon? And who is gay? Yeah, talk about a dead community. The original creators went out and made an entire series as a very deliberate homage to CCS, and all they did was give the original series a shot of adrenaline in the arm. And possibly one-upping Neon Genesis Evangelion for the "Most Messed-Up Plot Ever" award. Today, with the nostalgia almost fully worn off for even the most die-hard fans, most fanfics would rate superior to CCS on sheer novelty alone.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Sorry, did you watch Blade Runner?

Roy Batty, as well as the other Nexus-6's, were *NOT* given human emotions - they were given implanted memories. "More human than Human" was simply the motto of the Tyrell Corporation. You know, like McDonald's is "I'm lovin it" - would you take away that *everyone* loves McDonald's?

I'm sorry if I'm the recurring troll for all of your journal posts - but you seem to only get 50% of what you post, and miss the rest. Sure, Batty's final speech had a human element in the fascination that he's seen these things, but you're also ignoring the fact that Rutger Hauer was giving a performance there, and the Batty of the film is different than the Batty of the book - which is a substantial creative difference.

Rutger Hauer (and Ridley Scott) was simply acting in accordance to the knowledge that if Batty was played deadpan and ruthless, like an android, it would probably not have had (a) the same impact or (b) the same return viewings. Recall also that in one version, Deckard's not a replicant - and another where he is, simply because of Gaffe's origami. The actors simply played their role - and to be honest, Hauer in Blade Runner is not a far character from Hauer in the Hitcher. One's a replicant, the other a crazed serial killer - both simply looking for answers. You're kinda making up the rest of the dots to connect.

1- The most wonderful thing about fanfiction to me is finding new ways to perceive a story. In each and every type of fanfiction, from AUs to crossovers, there is a new aspect to appreciate the same story that you already loved. The worst thing is poorly done fanfiction- Mary Sue filled, terrible grammar, horrific spelling, characters acting in ways that they would never.

2- Combination of b, e, and g~

3-Most of the things I love are already popular, but one of my favorite mangas, Pandora Hearts has so little, despite its brilliance.

4- I don't know if they are better than the original, because I loved the original too, but Dailies by Strix 4, the whole FMA prompt fic community on Livejournal, Take a Long Line by Derry, and Time in Seconds by ncfan (at fanfiction.org) are all brilliant, and as good as the original text. I don't think doujins count, but if they do, maaf by dinosaurusgede is one of the best things I've read.

5- I think it's an homage, but I also think it's more than that. Fanfiction authors give new life to the story, give their own thoughts and feelings to create something else.

What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction?

The way it allows fans to explore and play with their favourite characters and worlds.

And what is the most dreadful?

Trolls and/or stories that assume that they're superior to the original when they often show a lack of intelligence in their layout.

When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:

Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction?

Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?

1:What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?
Fan fiction is a gamble. It's usually done by people who liked (are "fans") of a particular work... but it's never guaranteed that they "liked" it in the same way as you (or anyone else). It's also not guaranteed that their work (meant as homage to something else) will be worth a damn. Sometimes it's excellent, a lot of times it's crap. Sometimes it provides a fresh outlook, exposition, or view... sometimes, does no such thing, catering instead to a sexual fantasy, or some shallow predisposition towards what is "excellent" in a story or work.

2:When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
Horrified. It was absolutely TERRIBLE... not just the artwork, or the writing/grammar, but also the interpretation. It was so horrible that I felt compelled to keep on looking for better fan fiction, such that I could bleach out the memory of the previous fan fiction.

3:Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
The Dig, by Alan Dean Foster. It was adopted into a video game, too, and is one of my nostalgic favorites :3 Originally, there had planned to be a sequel, but it just never happened.
And also, Anachronox. Absolutely wonderful old game! Beautiful story, fun gameplay... another thing that a sequel was planned for but never happened. :(

4:Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
Yes, though I can't remember what they were named or where to find them (sadface). "Fate Stay Knight" has quite a bit (again, some of it is garbage, and some is beautiful). Though I haven't looked for it, I'm sure "Firefly" has a lot, too (the series was excellent, but unfortunately it was cut short).

5:Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:
All, and none, of the above. It is entirely dependent upon the context of the fan fiction, which depends entirely upon the individual who created it. Because of this, each of those reasons can be true for some fan fiction, and not true for others. Some fan fiction is exactly the opposite of homage: the original work was such utter FAIL that someone decided "I can do better," and so they did. Not for glory or recognition, but because they wanted to craft their own version of what I like to call "memory bleach."
-In short, each of the listed reasons are valid, but so are their opposites (example: good clean fun --> dirty fetish fun, as mentioned in #1), and there are more reasons to make fan fiction than were listed.

Most wonderful? I'd have to say the breadth of imagination inherent in the sheer idea of it. Once you think "oh what would have happened if....?" the possibilities aren't simply endless, they create entire new universes of possibility. That's the best part - seeing what someone else has come up with for your favourite characters. The worst too actually - when it's not well thought out, or they're hurt or dead or not there in the first place. I cringe every time I see a grammatical mix up, but that's just my uni studies coming through XD

Jealous that someone else had thought of it first. I was thinking about fan fiction LONG before I found it. Stargate fiction actually. Once I realised that it existed, well I was hooked and yes, I do write my own :)

Interestingly, I've never found a fandom that hasn't been going strong since before I found it. I'm not sure if that means I'm just behind the curve or I have taste in my fandoms ;)

I've read a lot of fiction I thought superior to the original - mostly because they included things I enjoy, either by changing the relationships changing the setting or simply better writing.

In the end, fanfiction is fun, not always clean, and a brilliant starting point for someone wanting to learn. "Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery" may not always be accurate, but in this case, it fits.

What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?

To me, what is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction is the concept of looking at things that could be possible within the canon of whatever the work is based in. For example, for "Battlestar Galactica", we got to see what it was like to be in the rag-tag fleet, but we never really got to see what it was like to survive the Cylon Apocalypse in the 12 Colonies. The closest we get is with Sam and his group, but it's nothing compared with being hunted by the Cylons, having to run, hide and occasionally fight, with very little supplies, no hope of rescue and the only thing keeping you alive is the person next to you in your small group. Imagine being caught in a metropolis, surrounded by Cylons and humans wanting to kill you as you're trying to escape. That's the kind of thing I kinda that's wonderful, the fact that you can take that idea and run with it. The most dreadful is repeating everything verbatim without anything really new involved.


When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
I chose: H. Curious to see how the story turns out (which is an option that isn't even included in the above list).

Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?

There's quite a few I can think of. But if I had to pick one, I haven't seen anything based on "Zombies Ate My Neighbors."


Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?

The "Battlestar Prometheus" series. "The Early Winter" by by Eric Slyter, which was written years before the prequel came out and told a speculative story about the events of the Norwegian camp (and its very well done), for John Carpenter's "The Thing" (I consider this one an equal, not superior). And the "Scott Pligrim vs. The Walking Dead" by matcnew (profile here: [link] ), which I thought was a great followup to the comics (link to comic here: [link] ).

It can extend a good story that had promise or potential that the original author did not see, or did not live long enough to develop.

1. b) And what is the most dreadful?

The fan fiction on classical characters I can understand.

However much fan fiction today is based on TV programs and movies targeted at a different demographic (I'm 57). Not knowing the base story I will never be able to relate to the fan fiction.

For now that is my problem as a reader. But it is a problem for authors too.

Consider if you write a story and someone comes across it 50 years from now. If it is regular fiction, in other words if it is a self-contained story, this future person can still understand it.

But if it is fan fiction, if it relies on knowledge of an old movie, TV series or computer game in order to make sense, then there is every chance that the story will mean as much to future generations as it does to me.

In other words, I see fan fiction as a short cut, the author uses ready-made characters and a ready-made universe, which is fine -- but then the story only makes sense to those already familiar with the characters and universe.

The downside is that if the original story or original series is lost, the fan fiction becomes meaningless.

So if someone is going to write fan fiction, and IF they happen to care about future generations being able to read it, they should make sure the base story, movie or computer game is a classic.

I think Fan-Fiction can be a wonderful thing. Its a tool people can use to extend their enjoyment of a book or movie to beyond it's current length. It is also great when used to explore alternative outcomes and new plot twists and turns leading to different endings and new relationships. It can be fantastic!

The big problem that I have with Fan-fiction - personally - Is that it is amazingly difficult to find a well written concept. Sometimes the authors have fantastic ideas and wonderfully unique plots but the writing is appalling. It seems too often than not the writers of Fan-Fiction have no self-control with what they write. Which Is great for personal enjoyment because it means you can really just go with what you emotionally desire to happen but the downside is that when this emotionally wild frenzy occurs the writers loose all thought of the characters they are writing about. Lets take 'Castle' for instance. After reading 10 different fan-fictions you feel as though you've read 10 different versions of Beckett. In the actual series the Character of Beckett is strong, fiercely Independent and has millions of tiny Insecurities and protections. In the fan fictions you may have one extremely childish and flirty Beckett, another a Dependant house wife and again a 'Don't care about work' Party Chick.

To me, the magic of Fan Fiction is that you feel as though this could actually occur; that potentially Beckett could end up with Castle if such and such happened, or this is really the way Castle would be acting had Beckett died. It needs to fit in with Characters and so If your going to change the Character to any major degree then at least include a prologue explaining the circumstances which lead to this huge change in Personality. After all, it is the Characters we fall in love with, rarely is it what's happening to them.

Sorry about the long comment but that's my view on Fan-Fiction. When you find one that's written really well (other than the 100 you had to read to find it) it can be great fun and fantastically enjoyable.

P.S. This is not saying that almost everyone's fan fiction is worthless its just saying that most of what i read has been written to please some inner desire that some otherworldly occurrence will throw these semi-realistic characters into a world of your choosing and im sure it's really entertaining to you but others may not have that desire and so it is not as exciting to them, they have only what they see on the screen or read on the page to connect your stories to the object of your writing. A lot of these people would be great at writing their own new and unique story but they seem to either not have the confidence or the desire to strike out on their own and create something new for people and so they explore their ideas through other peoples characters, subconsciously altering them to suit their new world needs when they could quite easily create their own characters to throw into these situations.

P.P.S. Loved this article! I also loved the transcript, its was extremely in character and thank you for posting it =D It re-kindles my forgotten love of 'Blade Runner'

What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?
Seeing each person's take on an orriginal work, and the fact that most of them are shippings or people placing them in the story.(I've done the latter myself a few times when I was younger.)
When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
b.) Amused & g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction
It was always interesting to read the works that gave the story a different turn.
Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
I couldn't think of a single source without a single fanfic.
Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
Yes, there was one story that I achingly wanted to be finished. Which was suprising considering I'm not a big fan of the series mainly.
Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:

c.) Good clean fun & d.) Brilliant, career launching platform
People who write, like to start with something they know well, so why not a book? When they are done with fanfiction, and they have a neck for it, they might move to their own stories.

Bottom line, Fan Fiction is story writing for beginers, and advanced people alike.

This movie is my favorite movie. I also loved reading the book that it was based on. The world as it was imagined was a stark and violent world but it also held great beauty if you actually took time to look for it. I have always wondered what I would do if given a specific "ending date" on my life. I am 52, I have had a great life so far and am looking forward to many more adventures in the years to come. You have captured a glimpse of what one persons "outlook" on life might be and also help to maybe understand "RB" a little better. Thank you for the great story and continuing the great legacy that is Blade Runner.

Some Quick Questions:
What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?
The most wonderful aspect of fan fiction is that it allows the characters to interact in different settings (or worlds in the case of cross-overs) that the original writers hadn't thought of before and you actually think that this could work.

The most dreadful aspect is when people try to self-insert themselves into the storyline. If original characters are interesting and fit into the storyline then it can work, but when the series suddenly turns into a harem where all the male/females suddenly like the writer's original character then it's not very realistic.

When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
d.) Confused -- I first read a Pokemon fan fiction when I was too young to understand that it was actually a fanfiction rather than a more mature version of Pokemon. Nevertheless, I still found it kind of interesting.
g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction? -- Quite a few years later I wanted to write some of my own fan fiction but it didn't go anywhere because I didn't think I had a grasp on the characters.

Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
As others have already mentioned, if you look hard enough, you'll probably find fan fiction on anything you want. It can sometimes be a disturbing thought when you know that even though there are two characters in a show/book that would not normally have a relationship could have that connection in a fanfiction.

Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
I can't think of particular examples of specific fan-fictions, but I always enjoy fanfics that have taken relationships between two characters where you think that homosexual relationships could almost be plausible anyway and have played on that relationship (like Phoenix Wright). I also enjoy humours fanfics that have been made of novels/tv shows/movies etc. that would otherwise be serious shows because I always enjoy a bit of comedy.

Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:
c.) Good clean fun -- I wouldn't call it necessarily "clean" fun, but it's still fun.
d.) Brilliant, career launching platform -- It allows writers to consider what a character would do even when they aren't their own and they also receive (most of the time) critiques on their own writing that could help in the future.

What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?
--------- People can get creative with it and bring characters into new worlds that otherwise would not likely be in canon.
--------- When the story is just raw smut with no plot and characters are turned into cardboard are the worst and sadly, the most frequent how I see it. Just because it is fanfiction, there are boundaries that stand as guidelines of what works for fanfiction and what doesn't.
When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
a.) Horrified! (More on the fact that there were M fanfics for children shows. It is still an iffy thing I feel.)
b.) Amused (Looks like fun and it's an interesting thought.)
g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction? (I have...never completed anything though.)
Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
--------- 1) I take time and frequently leave things in the middle so why should I speed anyone else up.
--------- 2) It's like Rule 34... but instead of porn, there is ALWAYS FANFICTIONS.
Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
--------- I don't read it usually but there are fanfics that are diamonds in the rough. A good fanfiction is one that is very convincing to be a possible canon.

Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is: a.) A homage AND d.) Brilliant, career launching platform

1. the most wonderful aspect of fanfiction is how many brilliant ideas come to life, and to light, through it as a medium. the worst part is all the people who have forgotten what their mothers taught them. "if you don't have anything nice to say, just don't leave a freaking review." on the subject of all the porn out there, i happen to like it, but YMMV.

2. looking in the fanfiction archives for all my favorites shows, i have had pretty much every one of these reactions. the first time i found the sight though, i was really happy that other people had as many weird ideas as me. then i wanted to write my own!

3. i don't think there is a work of fiction, or anything else for that matter, that doesn't have a fanfiction page. not that i've found anyway.

4. you very rarely find those, but yes, they DO exist! i've found that, for me, its usually the ones that shed new light on canon events, by doing things like showing them from a different perspective or adding something "revealing" to the mix and seeing what happens. its easy to stray into "fix fic" territory, but if you avoid that you can come up with some real gold!

bottom line, fanfiction is: all of the above! honestly, your millage may vary, but i've seen it be all these things for various people. for me though, i'm hoping its a career launching platform. fingers crossed everyone!

This is some gorgeous art! And the 'interview' is intriguing. They *did* blast their way, so to speak, out of their on their way to Earth. I can imagine the irritation of such a delay would get under Roy's skin. Now to answer the questions.....

1. The sheer amount of it, and the absolute freedom which with fanfic writers explore, twist, mutate, *explode*, canon. From character studies to cracktastic AU stories crossed with the most diverse and polar opposite fandoms. The most dreadful would be - when a writer is way too caught up in their personal fantasy life or brings their soapbox along. That and the ones who think it's appropriate to print out and present X-rated fanfic to actors, directors, etc.....

2. F and G both, though it was far from a 'guilty' pleasure. It was amazing! Stories about beloved characters that transcended the rigid 'norms' of Hollywood and the publishing industry.

3. Well, it's possible that some exists and I just haven't found it, but I would love some Little House, some Out of Africa, *more* C J Cherryh, and hey - Jaws! There needs to be Martin/Matt fanfic.

4. Wow. There is so much out there, and i've read tons.... It's hard to say. Do you mean 'extended' by - writing more from the canon ending, or do you mean any kind of story at all, one that simply runs with the original concept but only fleetingly touches on the source story/stories?
I think...there's a Stargate:Atlantis story that is probably one of the very best I've ever read, that takes the concept and runs with it and, in my mind, does it so much better than the show.... 'Written by the Victors' by Speranza. Absolutely magnificent. In fact, that author writes the best SG:A fic out there, in my opinion, and has a ton of stuff online.
[link]

As for the last question, fanfiction is A and C, with a sprinkling of D if that's what you're after. Many, many, many fanfic writers have no intention of, or interest in, pro writing, and feel that saying 'fanfiction is practice for when i do prostuff!' is kind of insulting. But there are a lot of published authors who started in fanfiction and who still write it either for fun or for profit. See - every 'novelization' writer out there.

There is a ton of fanfiction meta out there, some self-serving, some incredibly interesting and thought-provoking. Time magazine even published an article recently about fanfiction and Harry Potter, and a few tv shows (Supernatural springs instantly to mind) have embraced the fanfiction/fanauthor/fandom culture wholeheartedly. I look forward to more installments in this adventure!

What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?
The most wonderful: We get to 'play' with our favourite characters in our favourite fantasy worlds... it's like being a kid in a sandpit or playing with barbies again, except better!
The most dreadful: People forget they are playing with somebody else's characters and not just character-less dolls. I hate OOC portrayals. The characters we are using are not just 2D images that we are free to put our own personalities and characteristics into. Otherwise you may as well be playing with barbies. They are somebody else's characters, somebody who has worked very hard to create those characters just so, and let's face it, we love those characters which is why we're using them now. We shouldn't change them so dramatically they're barely recognisable from the original characters of the books or movies.

When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:
Kind of g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction. But mainly amazed. Amazed at how my favourite fantasy world had spread out more than I imagined and I could keep enjoying it.

Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
To be honest, I wouldn't know if something hadn't had a fan fiction treatment. I would say Firefly but I bet there are fanfics for it out there.

Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
No.

Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:
a.) A homage
b.) Insulting graffiti
c.) Good clean fun

I can't really see it as a career-launching platform. But it's everything else. There are some appallingly horrifying fanfics out there that really are insulting graffiti. But the rest of it falls under a) and c).

1: What is the most wonderful aspect of fan fiction? And what is the most dreadful?

For me fan fiction is so valuable because you can let things happen in your fandom you always wanted to happen and you can share those things with those who think like you in this way, you can make people happy, you give them another dreamworld and thus you enrich the fandom.
The most dreadful aspect would be that people insult fanfics if they are not like they're expecting it to be because they want something to happen completely different.

2:When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:

b.) Amused
My first fanfic that I read was a Professor Layton one. I randomly catched a chapter from the 4th season and it was very funny and nice. Of course I was wondering why she lets such things happen but I got curious and started reading all the other chapters. So I understood the concept of fanfics and I grew more and more attached to the idea and fanfic. I admire her fanfic much.

g.) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction?
As I was continuing to read, I more and more wanted to give her ideas of what I want to happen (I wasn't on dA or fanfiction.net). As I found a friend of hers on youtube I was telling her what she should tell the fanfic writer but she said I could say it to herself by creating an account at dA and I don't have to upload any art, I could just read and comment. And so I did but as time grew, I got more and more friends and I got inspired and, after only watching, wanted to make art by myself. I started drawing pics but I noticed I'm better and more into writing. I have many many projects and ideas but not much time ;-; I deleted my account because of personal reasons and came back some time ago. My native language isn't English so I first have to translate my fanfics which takes even more time but I will upload fanfics again.

Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?
I think it's sad that Trauma Center: New Blood doesn't have much fanfics because at ff.net it's only under the category trauma center. you can chose which characters you wanna have but they're all crazy after the other trauma center ones. I love the charas from tc:nb but almost nobody cares about them.

Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?
The problem is I'm one of those who supports certain pairings, people I want to see together. So I don't read fanfics with pairings I don't like, even if they're good. I think pairings (maybe except for canon) ALWAYS affect the fandom in a way it actually wasn't intended from the inventor, though also almost every writer does so because he likes some characters more than the others and such, they can't be really impartial.
And atm I'm too tired so I can't come up with one, maybe the first fanfic I was reading. Though it is not always perfect for me because there are also things I don't like but this fanfic is something special to me :)

Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:

a.) A homage and
b.) good clean fun.

1) What is the most wonderful aspect of fanfiction? And what is the most dreadful?

The most wonderful aspect of fanfiction is undoubtedly the potential it has. Every little thing the writers/writer of a show/movie/book/game teases you with, the community can expand on it, tie up the loose ends, explain the things that remained unexplained, all the things like that. Basically, the way fanfiction can extend an already existing universe, and gives a forum to brilliant writers who want to write for the enjoyment of themselves and others.

The worst aspect is people who gave fanfic a bad name, as it were. So, really OOC fics, ones that are just living out juvenile fantasies, etc. Mary Sue/Gary Stu especially. Though on the subject of Mary Sues, I do believe it's entirely possible (and it's been done) to write a self-insert story that doesn't fall into that trap.

2) When you first came across a fan fiction treatment of one of your favorite books or movies, you were:

b) Amused
f) Happy to have fellow devotees of your “guilty pleasure”
g) Inspired to start writing your own fan fiction?

3) Which work of fiction, literary, film or TV, that hasn’t had any treatment in fan fiction, should have some asap, in your considered opinion?

Shadows of the Damned. The potential for some hilarious fics is right there.

4) Can you think of examples of fan fictions which you thought were superior to the original source material being “extended”?

I pretty much only ever read Mass Effect fanfiction, but the work of an author called Myetel in that fandom is unreal in how well it's written, and how much it expands the universe. That and Mass Effect: Interregnum.

Bottom line, fanfiction is good, clean fun. Even if it's surprising to see some of the prejudices towards certain types of story sometimes.

Also, it's awesome we've got something to showcase young writers. I'm 17 and having an absolute blast writing my own fanfic :-)

1) Any given fanfiction archive is like a jungle filled with no characterization, trite plots, anatomically incorrect porn and people fulfilling their sick fantasies through bad writing. Some of it makes me laugh out loud just from reading the summary. Some of it makes me want to gouge my eyes out and scream until my voice gives way, or (alternatively) just never think of the character in question again (really, it's fortunate that over the years I've become proficient in the art of brain bleaching and selective amnesia). Temporary loss of faith in humanity is also one of the common symptoms.
That is clearly the bad part.

The good part... well, if you're in the fanfiction 'business', once in a while you'll come across something. It may be a character piece. It may be a piece exploring a half-forgotten plot hole. It may even be a particularly clever AU or shipping piece, though that is pretty rare... Anyway, you'll read it and realize something new about the original source that you've missed the first time round. There is a good reason why, at least in my opinion, 'this is my new headcanon' is one of the biggest compliments you can pay a fanfiction writer...

2) At first definitely d.) confused, then proceeded to 'highly entertained' :XD:

3) Ever heard of rule 34? Yes? Well, everyone else did too, there is probably no such work nowadays. And even if there is one, there is also plenty of stuff that should have never been written for. It's probably a balance thing.

4) I'm a firm believer in Sturgeon's law ("90% of everything is crud") and when it comes to fanfiction I like to take this 'readable' ten percent and repeat the treatment, but...yes, I can. The higher the quality of the original the more difficult it is to exceed it, but it's always possible for someone to at least live up to it.

Bottom Line, Fan Fiction is:
a.) A homage. Sometimes doubtful, the same way plagiarism is a compliment, but a homage nonetheless.
