I know I'm not the only one a bit annoyed with the the typical sloppiness of terminology in the recent main page post new crappy fiction being "sloppy fanfic", considering the comments. ("Fanfic" , of course, is a descriptor of a work's relation to another work, not a marker of quality. Yes, the quality of E. L. James's writing is poor. So is the quality of Dan Brown's writing. This says way more about the quality of massive bestsellers and what constitutes mass appeal than it does about transformative art.) So, since we've got a good few appreciators of fan works here, help me create two lists. I'll start them out.
