jo_anne_storm: (IPS -- Grammar)
Amazon Worlds, where you can publish fanfic from certain WB franchises and earn royalties for your stories.

I'm really...  I don't like it.  Fanfic has always been driven by pure love, not by money.  And the few times someone has tried to publish pure fanfic, the internet exploded with hate.

What I'm seeing as the end result is that the WB will start making a profit on fan stories and send Cease and Desist orders to free fanfic sites.

Really, no, I do not like this.

Edit:

From the Bleeding Cool comments section, a breakdown of some of the fine print:
There's also a couple "gotchas" in this. The first is relatively minor, but it says that the owners of the IP that authors borrow will have an exclusive license to your work. So if you did what Larry Niven did when he got a chance to write an episode of Star Trek (animated), and adapted one of his short stories to fit in the Trek universe, you wouldn't be able to publish that short story (in its original form) elsewhere. The bigger "gotcha" comes next: While they reassure authors that they'll retain the copyright to their original elements (new characters, settings, plot, dialog), the owners of the IP you're borrowing will have a license to use them, without paying you an additional penny. I suspect they included this clause to protect themselves from "you stole my idea" lawsuits, but it would be oh so easy for them to abuse it. So not only would Larry Niven be unable to publish "The Soft Weapon" on his own, he would've handed the Kzinti to Paramount to use in future episodes (and books and movies and plush toys), free of charge.

Also, with free sites, why would you pay for fanfic?  I can see why getting paid royalties would seem nice, but most fanfic authors I know are not in it for the money (obviously).  They do it because they love the worlds and the characters.  Because they love writing and want to hone their craft.

The always lovely dream_mancer requested Leverage, preferably with Parker.  So, I present a little snippet of Parker's first meeting with Nate.

One more to go after this.  If you want another one, feel free to leave a comment at the original meme post.  There's five more "slots" to fill, and I've been having fun.

First response to the "Drabble" meme. It think it might be more of a ficlet...

For [livejournal.com profile] goddessvicky , who requested Faith and Echo (BtVS/Dollhouse crossover)

603 words do not a drabble make )

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me.* In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Fandoms include SPN, Bones, BtVS, Angel, Dollhouse, The Mentalist, Leverage...  I'm sure that there are others I can write, I just can't think of them right now.  Oh, pretty much anything Vampire related, except for Anne Rice and LKH (been too long since I've read the former, never read enough of the latter to do any good).

Maybe this will get the ol' creative juices flowing again.

Waiting for the butter to soften is boring.  So, I added a chapter to Batmethos's "Tales from the Barman" round robin.  Just basically Zarek and Astrid interaction, because I adore them.  It can be found here.

So, butter should be soft by now, since it's been put for 2 hours...  Yeah, also got distracted by this.  So, I have time to make the dough and pop it in the fridge before getting ready to take Eldest to Mass.  Actual baking may not happen until tomorrow.  *shrug*  As long as they're all done by 6 pm Tuesday, it'll be fine.

This would not get out of my damn mind.  As in I was writing it in my head as I slept and when I woke up to pee.  So rabid that I had to write it as soon as I got up.
