Filed under: I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO DO THIS FOREVER AND KEEP FORGETTING. Thus, I am doing it now, before I, uh, forget. Apologies for those folks whose dash this is spamming; I’m making it largely so I can link to it for reference in some places.
So, this is a post about fanwork based on fanwork and how I feel about it! And how I feel about it is great. If you want to podfic one of my fics, translate one of my fics into another language, make fanart based on one of my fics, remix one of my fics, write tags/extensions to one of my fics—basically, if you want use my fanwork as a jumping off point for the creation of more fanwork—the answer is yes. Please consider this post my blanket permission. You do not have to ask me; the answer is always yes. I am honored and thrilled that you’d be interested it doing it, and, as I always am, totally staggered by how amazing it is to be part of a community where so much collective creativity is even possible, let alone commonplace.
However! There are five brief little caveats. They’re under the cut!
