Philip? What are you doing with my computer?
Do you guys ever think about how lucky we are?
We get to read novels that other people will never know existed. We get to know authors before they hit the mainstream.
We get feedback from like-minded people who are 90% of the time gushing over how much they love our work.
We get to watch ourselves grow as writers, laugh and cry with our favorite characters in ways most people will never get to experience, and discover new writers who become our friends.
Fan fiction RULES.

“I miss a lot of the people I worked with. I miss people bowing at me…Joke! But it was time to move on. Hopefully, she [Anne Boleyn] will be one of just many characters that I grow a strong affection for in playing them.”
Fanworks Auction for Charity
We have some amazing creators in the Teen Wolf fandom offering up fic, fanart, graphics, gif sets, manips, crafts, etc for this charity and YOU can bid on their works!
- Because Tumblr’s “comment” feature is not adapted for this kind of activity, we are holding the auction itself on Livejournal. But don’t worry! You don’t have to have a Livejournal account to participate!
- In this post will find everything you need to know before you start bidding!
- Here you will find the Masterpost of all the people offering up their fanworks. You can click on each name to get you to their individual posts where you can see what it is they offer and you can start the bidding.
The auction will end on the 24th of August, at midnight EST.
And remember, this is an amazing opportunity to get your requests done by some of the most talented people in this fandom AND at the same time you are donating money to a good cause, which will surely bring a smile to Tyler’s face!
AND, both winners and the fanwork creators can get their own message to Tyler in the booklet we’ll be giving him!
So what are you waiting for? GO BID!
I first wound up in a panel of women who do fan art and fan fiction surrounding the current TV incarnation of Teen Wolf. And you know what they were like? They were a lot like every other panel of geeky young writers I’ve ever seen. They spoke intelligently and thoughtfully about writing and creativity and what they like and don’t like to make art about. They talked about the responsibility they feel when they write about mental illness and thoughtfully chewed over the idea of creating transgender characters to add to what’s sort of a preexisting universe. They rolled their eyes at a video that was circulating in which Teen Wolf actors were placed on the spot and asked to read fan fiction aloud for yuks, shrugging it off as a cheap effort to make actors uncomfortable on camera and get them to dump on their own fans.

I very much believe in doing it. I very much believe that it’s unfair to say, “People don’t want to see movies with female heroes,” then list five movies that were not very good, therefore, people didn’t go to the movies because they weren’t good movies, versus [because] they were female leads. And they don’t mention “Hunger Games,” “Frozen,” “Divergent.” You can go back to “Kill Bill” or “Aliens.” These are all female-led movies. It can certainly be done. I hope we do it sooner rather than later. But we find ourselves in the very strange position of managing more franchises than most people have — which is a very, very good thing and we don’t take for granted, but is a challenging thing. You may notice from those release dates, we have three for 2017. And that’s because just the timing worked on what was sort of gearing up. But it does mean you have to put one franchise on hold for three or four years in order to introduce a new one? I don’t know. Those are the kinds of chess matches we’re playing right now.
