Diana Gabaldon has deleted the original post on fanfic that I referenced in my open letter
and all three of her followup posts. There appear to be partial screencaps of the comments at Fandom Wank
, but no public record of the posts that I can find quickly.
I subscribe to her blog in Google Reader, however, and the posts are still there. In order to provide context for the discussion surrouding these posts, then, I have copied & pasted the text below and taken screencaps
(note: I redid the caps for readability shortly after posting this, which is why the timestamps are later). I have not edited them in any way.( Collapse )
I've said my piece about the first of these already, and do not feel it necessary to respond to the rest. Therefore, I'd prefer that you use this post as a reference and not a place for discussion. Thanks.
