Fanfiction & Censorship

I read a lot of fanfiction in various fandoms and enjoy it greatly. In the last year or so, I have discovered LJ or LiveJournal. Although it is populated with, by my tastes, strange & weird people who write about some topics I’m not always comfortable with, I love it because occasionally I come across a story or a recommendation for something that really blows my mind, changes how I re-read the book, watch the TV show or experience a movie. This is everything great about fan-created works and part of that greatness is the weird, outlandish, wonderfully stream-of-consciousness, anything-goes attitude.

In light of LiveJournal’s recent crackdown, one person decided to get a little bit of their own back….by writing anthropomorphic porn. Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you “Making Up Is Hard To Do (Fandom/LJ, NC-17)” by china_shop. Here’s a quote:

“Look, just get out of my face for a while, okay? I’m so mad at you, I could— I could—”

“What?” LJ eyed her warily. An angry Fandom was unpredictable and quite possibly dangerous.

Fandom’s lips curled bitterly. “If I say ‘kill you’, will you suspend me for death threats?”

Hehehe. I love the internet soooo much.
