I haven’t watch both of the animes yet. But I knew the OP of ef. Damn time for to start watching these both animes. lol
I need answers! Howd is she?!
I can never not laugh at this.
I know I’m quite late to all of this, but I had to dig out my copy of Orson Scott Card’s Maps in a Mirror to find the thing I wanted to mention (see, I stashed it away when I got too disgusted with OSC).
There’s a story in the collection called The Originist, and it is very explicitly stated to be fanfic for Asimov’s Foundation universe. Written with permission, but fanfic nonetheless. In the afterword to the story, OSC goes on at length about how horrible franchised science fiction writing is and how it cheapens both the universes that are franchised and the writers writing in them. He mentions Star Trek fanfic and basically pisses all over it. And then he explains that he knows The Originist is fanfic too, but it’s okay! Because he understands the world it’s set in! And he loves it! And he had a story to tell that Asimov never told! And he even went so far as to try and tell it in Asimov’s style!
"Yet I think it was worth doing —once— partly to prove it could be done well (if in fact I did it well), and partly because I’m proud of the story itself: because of the achievement of it, because of what the story says, and because it is a tribute to the writer that I firmly believe is the finest writer of American prose in our time, bar none."
So what I’m saying is, OSC thinks fanfic sucks, but he wants you to know that he totally wrote this awesome fanfic!
Don’t mind me—just being the MASTER of televised fanfiction. The formula goes…
"What if [major literary work] had a jack russell terrier as the protag?"
"WHAT IF EVERY MAJOR LITERARY WORK HAD THIS?"
And that’s how Wishbone became a thing.
WHY NOT post the third set?
