A few quotes about Fic:
"An indispensable guide to the dizzying world of fanfiction—its history, names, games, and creative promise. With … provocative interviews with writers, lively essays by readers and activists, and engaging examples from the kingdoms of fandom." —Elaine Showalter, Professor Emerita of English and American Literature, Princeton University
"This definitive volume offers a rich immersion into fanfiction and is for anyone who has both loved and lived for the unique community of fandom, as well as for those who desire a look into this world or who are curious about the unexpected impact fic is having on the literary realm." —Library Journal
"a perfect marriage of scholarly knowledge and fangirl enthusiasm … Jamison does not serve as Fic’s singular voice, and in fact, stresses within the book that the fan-fiction community is best represented through featuring a diversity of voices and perspectives … an informative and enjoyable guide to the culture and history of fan-fiction that will appeal to veteran fan-writers” —The Learned Fangirl
"Fic is brilliant! As a fanfiction writer my jaw has not lifted from the table. This book is amazing, it’s giving fanfiction writers a reason to come out of the fanfiction closet. It’s providing a sense of pride and shining a long overdue spotlight on the ways in which we work.” —Behind the Pages

I read some Potterlock last week, and then on a whim decided to re-read a bunch of my own HP fic. Much of it was written so long ago that I’d forgotten what happened in those stories. And they were better than I’d expected! That always surprises me, somehow.

But oh, the Drarry feels… Harry/Draco is going to end up being one of my forever OTPs, I think (along with Johnlock). Those two boys are so broken at the end of book 7, and the possibility of them going on to find what they need in each other is just gloriously angsty and romantic. *happy sigh*

What are your forever OTPs?
