I decided to post this question here, because while fanfiction usually come from the speculative fiction sphere (and their TV/Movies aggregates) they can apply to almost any genre.
The Question: Would you fanfic (yes, I’m using it as a verb) a work by an author you know, in person or through the internet (blog, email, forums)?
