Sci-fi and fantasy have always been a big part of fan fiction, but fan fiction hasn't always gotten respect in return. My friend Stephanie Billman guides me through the landscape of fan fiction, debunking many of my preconceptions. We talk with Francesca Coppa, author of The Fanfiction Reader and co-creator of Archive of Our Own. Britta Lundin of Riverdale explains why writing fan fic taught her how to write for TV. And fan fic writer Savannah Stoehr explains why Kirk/Spock is the great love story of our time.
