Outrage of the Week: Harry Potter Slash Fan-Fiction

Okay, now I'm really grossed out.

It was bad enough when they did it to Kirk and Spock, nauseating when they did it to Sam Beckett and Al Calavicci, and now...they've done it to Harry and Draco??? And Harry and Snape???

Excuse me while I wash my brain out with industrial strength, bacteriocidal soap. Yech!

Isn't anything sacred, anymore? And where do these sick people get off writing what is essentially child pornography, using someone's copyrighted characters--and saying that their fiction is PG-13, when the implied content is clearly adult?!

If I were J. K. Rowling, I would sue these people into perdition. Unfortunately, there are so many of them that doing such a thing would probably be impractical. All you have to do is go to Google and do a search on the phrase "Harry and Draco" to see how many of these sites there are.

I have chafed in the past under some of the strictures that Anne McCaffrey has placed on fan fiction based on her works, but I can certainly see why she does so.

This is just appalling.

Yes, there is far too much stuff on the net that is, at the VERY least, in appalingly bad taste. I ran into some of the HP & Draco stuff previously and it's just... BAD.

The most recent McCaffrey fandom rules don't bother me, either, now that they've stopped with the silly sexuality requirments. Now, fandom itself if chock full of silly people, but then, silly people are everywhere.

Re: MacCaffrey Rules

Yep, the most recent McCaffrey rules are much easier to live with than they were a couple of years ago. At least now, it's allowed the canon mavens to calm down and experience Pern fandom the way it was in the 'good old days'--and I think many of them are finding they enjoy it.

::happy sigh:: No more 16 year-old fans having conniption fits because some Weyrs allow (gasp) female blueriders!

On the whole, the relaxing of that rule has been a very healthy thing for the fandom, IMO.
