Quotes: Fanfic
"This is the internet. There are literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people, writing ... fanfics. Chances are that at least one of those hundreds of thousands or millions of people is not only writing a ... fanfic with an extremely similar plot to yours, but unless you have evidence that proves otherwise there is a very good chance that this person is doing a better job of it than you are."
Thesis' Original Trainer Fic Guide, Poke-Community forums

"If we as a culture have gotten to the point where the average citizen seriously values the right of Avi Arad (Marvel CEO) to buy himself a bigger jet over the right of creative kids to express themselves, then we, as a culture, are really dumb."
— "ScottH", 4/25/2006, Fanfic discussion thread on neilsenhayden.com

"The next worst word you can couple with the word 'fan' is, you guessed it, the word 'fiction'..."
Strong Bad, Homestar Runner "fan club"

"I have looked terror square in its single, milky eye...There was "fan fiction"!"
Shelley Winters meets her fanclub in Scary Go Round.

"Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk."
— Henry Jenkins, author of Textual Poachers.

"[Fanfiction writers] are fans, but they’re not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."

Craig Ferguson :You know what fanfiction is ?
Tom Hanks :Yeah, yeah yeah, it's goofy stuff like Spock and Kirk fall in love, that kind of thing.
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, 10/29/2012, in a conversation about, among others things, Fifty Shades of Grey
