Filipino Fridays 2014 #3: What do you think of fanfiction?

Honestly, I... have no opinion of it, because I don't quite understand what it is? :D

Fanfiction is pretty popular, no doubt about it, but it has been received with mixed feelings by many authors and writers. Some don’t mind it, and even welcome readers who give their own spin on their work. Some writers don’t like it at all, to the point that they contact fanfiction authors to take their work down. Others use it as a jump-off point for their own writing.

How about you? What is your take on fanfiction? Do you read fanfiction, and if you do, what kind of fanfiction do you read? Do you write fanfiction, and why? Or are you against fanfiction? Enlighten us.

I guess fanfiction is popular, but I never really bothered with it so much that I don't even attempt to Google what it really is. I may have already read what others would categorize as fanfiction but I have no idea, and I don't think my opinion of it (or lack thereof) would change or affect my opinion towards the book, anyway. Perhaps what I'm trying to say is, I've been enjoying my eclectic choice of books already and that's enough for me.
