“My first reaction to fanfiction was surprise and shock. I mean I had the basic French reaction: 'How can someone write from a work belonging to someone else?' Then, I discovered fansites, generosity, enthusiasm. I made my own interpretation of fanworks as an instinctive resistance to some kind of starvation. Fanworks appeared to me as a victory, a very smart tactic. Taking stuff from the canon and changing them is very wise: it means accepting being a fan, instead of fighting against it.”
