- (One Reason) Why I Love Tamora Pierce:
On fan fiction: “Fan fiction for my work, I won’t read it, but given that when I, oh let me put it like this… [in little-old-lady voice] “When I was a girl, we called it Star Trek stories, and we were glad to have ‘em! We didn’t have the internet! We shared them with our friends!” […] I’m actually quite honored. Like I said, I don’t read it, but I say “Go to.”

And if I recall correctly, Tammy wrote fanfic beyond when she was a "girl". And I don't believe the "I won't read it" is meant as any sort of opinionated judgement on her part; again if I'm remembering correctly, I believe it was her agent who told her it was a bad idea to read fanfic of her works and that she shouldn't. But, from what I've seen, she's always been great about fanworks--even giving the thumbs-up (literally, I think) to a fan-comic series based on her work. (She's a big comic fan.)

And I'm feeling tired enough to sleep before four in the morning, which is an accomplishment. Thank you all for putting up with my multiple posts; I think having LJ as an outlet helped me a lot. And I even got some cleaning done. (: See you later today!
