Defending fanfictionThe inspiration for this piece was not the first time I've come across someone who doesn't understand fanfiction. I doubt it's going to be the last. But I've been bitten with the urge to defend a category of literature that's done so much for me.Defending fanfiction by myah5000
Like almost everything else in this world, fanfiction has both its strengths and weaknesses; its advantages and its drawbacks. I hate a biased piece, so we'll be taking a look at both sides of the coin, as it were. But first, what exactly is fanfiction?
- derivative fiction based on a copyrighted work such as a book or TV show. Individual cases may or may not qualify as fair use, but are rarely prosecuted.
-An unofficial writing (can be a short story, script or novel) using characters from an existing anime, manga or game

Crossover: A crossover means two or more series are used when writing a fanfiction. The intention is often to create a parody, though this is not necessary.
An example of crossover: Edward and Alphonse Elric are searching for the Philosopher's Stone, as well as Harry Potter and his two friends. The two groups can work together, or view it as a contest of who gets to the Philosopher's Stone first.
