Fanfic wank

The only thing better than "slash/RPF is evil!" wank is "fanfic is evil!" wank. No really, this is some good stuff.

I especially liked fafic=plagiarism. Which is bullshit, since I can rip off other people's ideas in my essays all I want as long (and it's to some degree encouraged) as I give proper credit, which is what disclaimers are for. The phrase you're looking for is "copyright infringement", which isn't plagiarism. kthnxbai.

Another thing I liked:
Fanfic doesn't teach writing. It teaches laziness and stupidity. It teaches you to take the ideas of others rather than come up with something original of your own.

Bitch, please. I can definitely say that writing fanfic has definitely made my writing better.

It's nice to see that anti-fanfic wankers all have the same arguments though. And mpreg is some of the most hilarious stuff on earth.

Dear friendslist,

You fail at life, the universe, and everything for allowing me to sign up to do Hughes/Roy for ship_manifesto. YOU FAIL, H0RS.


I'm also writing a AU Roy/Hughes Lost in Translation ripoff thing. Yes. You read that right. I like it. But it's not really FMA. I've attempted to keep it IC, but really, how IC can it really get?

In an attempt to NOT talk about fandom, I have to say that college applications suck and they make me sad. Really, really sad. And so does math homework.
