In the world of "Harry Potter" fanfiction, I've actually run across stories that are better than the books. And then there are ones so bad, readers are convinced it has to be satire.

I've written some fanfiction myself and the practice has improved my writing skills considerably. What's more, I know three ladies who are now working on writing their own original fiction books after having played with fanfictioin for a long time.

And most of the major general fic archives don't let you post stories in a universe where the original author has decried fanfiction.

When you post fanfiction, you have to pick the category for your story (Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc). When an author has asked fans not to write fanfic with their characters, there's no option to select those universes. And I know has a list on that page of authors who DON'T like fanfics.

Anne McCafferey has switched positions. She now allows fanfics to be written about her books. She was against it for a long time.

the flavors sound wonderful! I'd certainly buy them (and I don't usually buy ice cream!) what a fun thing, thanks for posting!
