Like. Ugh. I just hate the framing that fanfic is something that they should be humiliated about to begin with? Because it is so not; it is a valid creative pursuit, full of just as original and innovative (sometimes even moreso) ideas and writing and creations in comparison to the “source” material - and I will beat down on anyway who would like to discuss fan fiction being lesser or derivative in comparison to “original” works because all “original” works are fanfiction in some aspects.
So, anyway, rant aside, next time this happens, my ideal response? EMBRACE THE FANFICTION READING (and get the author’s permission, jesus, don’t just lift stuff from the internet without asking). Embrace how awesome the creativity is, praise it, and don’t be embarrassed. Because creator/actor embarrassment? is only going to make it seem even more like fans are people who should stay hidden, out of the way, not in the spotlight, and certainly not worthy of legitimate public attention for their creative pursuits.
(Caveat: yes, of course, get permission from the authors in question/don’t pick fanfiction at random; not what I’m discussing here)
what makes this all extra superduper ironic is that teen wolf is a transformative work itself, being an adaptation of a beloved cult movie
