Quotelolnope? That doesn't make any sense. I say (paraphrasing) you should try to follow your dreams if you want to be successful (in this instance in a creative endeavor). You say that that's delusional. I cite these two as people who had tried - and succeeded. And you respond that they started out writing fanfiction?
QuoteSo what if they did? How does that make their success (and I imagine satisfaction) any less real? The person who wrote "Fifty Shades" started off writing Fan Fiction (I think about Twilight) and is now having her novels turned into a movie. I'm sure she gives a shit that people say she started off writing fan-fiction too.
QuoteUltimately, though - from 50 shades lady to Anderson, fanfiction or no, they are living their professional dream. I read on here that you'd like to work to in movies one day - do you? If so, then clearly you tried and succeeded in what you set out to do (at that stage at least); if you don't and have never tried (as you seem to advocate here) then you're never going to work in movies - unless Cameron plucks you off the street to be the next John Connor or something.
QuoteEvery idea for a sequel/prequel/reboot/remake/etc. is basically fan-fiction until it's bought
