Personally, I think who ever came up with the idea of Fan Fiction, is absolutely brilliant.
Additionally I think, ‘Every reader would like to be a writer’ so, Fan Fiction will give a person the opportunity to dip their toes into the writing pool.

I would be thrilled if a reader wanted to continue one of my stories with their crossover take on events and characters.
As a matter of fact, all anyone will have to do is contact me and I’ll set up a tab for Fan Fiction on my website. An exclusive place where a reader can post their Fan Fiction, receive comments and be encouraged to continue with their writing.
Anyone interested enough to write Fan Fiction should also consider publishing the writing they create on Amazon, something I highly recommend. My answer is YAY!

Would you be? I'm just curious if you'd be good with a fan's slash fiction?

For example: Raven gang-banging the Guardsmen. That is exactly the kind of thing a fan would write.

Granted, this is not he only kind of fan fiction, but it's intense enough to test your comfort level with fans being free with your characters.

James,
Thanks for your response.
As writer's we have all struggled to find our voice. If someone chose my work to help them along in finding theirs, yes, I would be thrilled. One of the biggest hurdles to overcome in writing is confidence and if playing off something of mine helps, so be it.
