Hey all I’m happy to announce that I will be retiring Serial Saturday and bringing a new medium to cover for Saturday’s in it’s place. It’s titled Synth Saturday and it will cover Fan Fictions. I will still cover grammar and basic things like plot and characters when I cover a Fan Fic, but I’ll also be looking into various stereotypes and fandom ideas that are used, like the fact that most Harry Potter fans see Dumbledore as a manipulative jerk. That was a real shock to me, but I also could see the reasoning behind it.
I will make a post that covers basic terminology used in Fan Fics, so various terms and phrases don’t confuse you.
Disclaimers: I do not own anything talked about in this column except what I write here which are my opinions and are subject to change on my whim. If someone is making a profit off the franchise or the fiction author mentions something like Patreon that is purely on them and them alone. This will be the one and only disclaimer for all future posts in this column. I’m too busy, and more importantly lazy, to write “I don’t own (Insert works name here)” every time I write one of these posts.
