Antheia: Moved the following here, since it's a good question but doesn't belong on the main page:

  • Is it a Cookie Cutter Fic when the original author adapts the plot of his (published) story but uses a new set of protagonists?

Zelnor: I think the description is somwhat lacking; it's rahter ambiguous and doesn't really explain where the term comes from. I think it was an allegory to cookie dough or something.

szaleniec: It's because it results in everything looking the same.
