How I Consume

After my meeting with Dr Burton, my head was reeling with ideas. Since we talked a lot about Fan Fiction he suggested to me that I could do more focus on that. I started thinking about the ways that I consume media. After I watch a movie or read I book I refer to Fan Fiction. It is a habit that I have formed.

For example, after I watch the movie Prince of Persia I went to (link to Prince of Persia fanfic). Sometimes I am curious just to see who has written stories about the movie I just watched and how soon after a particular movie has premiered do people start creating their stories. I do this for books too. I love the book True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle and so I decided to see if anyone had written anything about it (Charlotte Doyle stories). There were a few stories but not as many as had been Prince of Persia. It is kind of fun to see what people like to write about and what people like to read.

Going to fanfiction has become part of my consume and I had not realized this until my meeting with Dr Burton. I think it would be interesting to see how fanfiction has changed literature and they way others read and consume.

  1. I really like your idea. Many of my friends are really into Fan Fiction, and I have dabbled in it a little myself. I love the concept of "you wished it could have turned out differently...well you have the power to change it."
