Table Talk: Fan fiction

I guess it’s time to broach another controversial topic in the land of entertainment: fan fiction. Truth be told, I’m ambivalent about fan fiction. I don’t have any loyalty to a particular fan fiction and, really, I don’t read fan fiction at all, but I used to read fan fiction back in my wonder years. […]
