Filipino Fridays (3): What do you think of fanfiction?

Hi!  We have to clock this before midnight. Not because the dead will come walking. And not because it's Halloween. But because on this part of the globe, Friday is already bidding us Good Night. So, we'll sort of do a Cinderella trick on this post.
What do you think of Fanfiction?: Fanfiction is pretty popular, no doubt about it, but it has been received with mixed feelings by many authors and writers. Some don’t mind it, and even welcome readers who give their own spin on their work. Some writers don’t like it at all, to the point that they contact fanfiction authors to take their work down. Others use it as a jump-off point for their own writing.
How about you? What is your take on fanfiction? Do you read fanfiction, and if you do, what kind of fanfiction do you read? Do you write fanfiction, and why? Or are you against fanfiction? Enlighten us.

What is your take on fanfiction?  Or are you against fanfiction? 
  • To be honest, before this question, I don't have any concrete opinion about Fanfiction. I can't be against it since I've read some of them. And I do think it's a good start for aspiring writers. On the other hand, original authors have the right to react against them. We are talking about their life's work here. But wasn't it also said, "imitation is the highest form of flattery"?

Do you read fanfiction, and if you do, what kind of fanfiction do you read? 
  • Yes, I do. One of the best ones I've read so far is G. Norman Lippert's adaptation of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.
