@144: I'm not sure why someone who dislikes a show would like fanfiction of it. My main problem with MLP fanfiction is that a lot of it has sex and gore. And the writer thinks they're being deep and edgy. I love the show as it is, it doesn't need Pinkie Pie mudering Rainbow Dash or Sweetie Belle being anally violated by Big Macintosh or whatever. Now, parodies are exempt from this to some degree. But I'd still prefer not to see any pony getting anally violated. Gotta draw the line somewhere.
Good luck with reading stories that start all innocent, cute and lovely... And always end with gay sex :)
I'm a high school English teacher. Sometimes, it's quite difficult to get the kids minds on writing. If this teacher has to emplore them to write by allowing them to write this, go with it. It's not always the content of the writing; grammar, punctuation, and spelling are the major factors.
It's not creative for them to use another person's characters, theme, and general plot. Everyone fantasizes about fictional characters. Putting those fantasies into a paper (usually) riddled with grammatical errors, plot holes, eroticism, incoherent babble, and self gratification isn't creativity but a lack of it. When I was in school we weren't allowed to plagiarize.
I don't know, it seems kind of silly. I always loved writing but it took me a while to get comfortable enough to do fanfiction. Its definitely not something I would turn it at school. It just doesn't seem appropriate. I think fanfiction is great, but that's something one should do on their own time. Like making silly youtube videos with your friends. There's nothing wrong with it, but would you turn one of those in for a video class? No! There's things you do for fun, like write fanfiction, and things you do for school and work. The students could easily make their own characters based on characters they already know, but the point of writing in school is not to make the teacher fangirl over some fictional character, the point is to practice and develop good writing skills.
There's a difference between writing a paper about another work and submitting a paper that's supposed to be original set in an already established fictional world with characters created by someone else. I didn't say it's not good to write, no matter what the subject; I said it's not what I'd consider creativity.
I disagree 86. Fanfiction is not lack of creativity! What about all the TV Shows and films made based on books...especially TV Shows, they don't always follow the book they change things and add things that never happened in the book. They write the story based in that world with the characters but they add new ones that never existed and events that never happened that is still fanfiction being produced as a usually successful TV Show or Film.
How is that even passable for a school paper? Creative writing was only for one paper the entire time I was in high school. Ps. How the hell do you write fan fiction about a band? "Today I was backstage...." Sounds more worthy of penthouse forum.
Some bands are really interesting and do a lot of weird stuff together. Think about it, they travel the world and they're famous. There's plenty to write about. But most people just write romances that don't have much of a plot. They're not meant to be interesting to everyone, they're meant for a very specific audience.
