Discussion post – “You know you’ve read a good book when…”


This is why fanfiction was born, y/y?

I was having this conversation just the other day with a mate of mine… He was going on about his first bookish and anime loves, and how he just couldn’t deal with how the series eventually resolved (or DIDN’T resolve) situations and relationships, which is why he eventually turned to fanfiction.

I had to agree.

Sometimes – I won’t lie – I was perfectly happy with how the book/anime/whathaveyou ended things… but I just couldn’t get over the fact that it was DONE. I wanted more and the author sure as hell wasn’t providing me with any. It was a fix I needed to sate, and fanfiction was my drug.

I’ve read SO many phenomenal books that just… ended. Nothing more. No sequels. No movie deals (at least not then, and in some cases even to this day). No… anything.  Fanfiction was my way to keeping that exceptional book, story or tale alive for days and weeks and months (and year, aha~) to come.

Anyone out there fanfiction advocates?

And if not, what did or do you currently do to deal with “saying goodbye” to a great read?
