Happy Birthday, Helen Mirren!

Also, ABC Political Reporter Annabel Crabb writes an opinion piece that I kind of want to marry.

And now, for today's meme question:

09. Fanfiction: discuss

Fanfiction is glorious. It's fun, it's transformative. It allows people to take these characters and worlds that go on living in their heads long after they close the book and talk about them in a narrative way. Fanfiction stories speak to each other, build on each other. They enrich the experience of a fictional universe, and while that is more than enough to justify their existence, they often do more than that, too. They provide a space for the exploration of sexuality from a predominately female perspective; for discussion of issues not thoroughly (or at all) explored in the canon text. They go places a canon story cannot, for reasons of genre or rating, time or other constraints. The shared love of characters or genres or pairings brings people together, and just... yes. Fandom without fanfiction is like cake without icing. Or something. I cannot even begin to calculate how much joy fanfic has given me since I started reading and writing it.
