Let me ask you something, alright? When it comes to writing stories, do you think that it is alright to write a fan story based on your favorite horror movies? I mean, wouldn't that pay the best respect to those ideas you love? Let me know what you think of this. Good day!

There are all kinds of books that have been written based on popular stories. One of the best examples are sc-fi. There are countless authors that have written their own stories of Star Wars, Star Trek, ect. I have seen books on Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm St.. As long as there are no intentions to profit from a story you shouldn't have to worry about copyright infringement. If you just want to post your own short story based on a movie here on Fearnet you wouldn't be the first, so feel free!

Oh my gosh yes it's completely alright! We all have those ideas we love and what better form of expressing that than artistic expression!

Well, the reason I said this is because some people frown upon the idea of fanstories, claiming that they aren't original and all that nonsense. I think they can be original. Originality isn't based on all things, but sometimes the things you bring to an already good idea. I think that fanstories should be presented just as proudly as original pieces, especially if you're paying respect to something you're proudly into.

I think you're absolutely right! It's kind of like writing your vision of a sequel, or an homage. There may be some that might comment negatively, but that is just part of sharing any kind of artistic work. The good with the bad basically, taking both criticisms in stride!

So, write on my dear!!!! Smile

The main idea I am going across with this is that Fan writing can be just as respectful as normal writing.

I think everyone that replied agrees with you.

Well, it wasn't a matter of agreeing or disagreeing. It was just a curious experiment among horror fans :)
