Fanfiction, Crafting and Women's Work (long)

I finally read the OTW entry on scalzi's blog. Be warned - 588 comments.

And I'm not going to say anything about legality or transformation - I don't have the background for it. I have opinions, of course, but as I'm rather bad at stating them, and worse at arguing them, I'm going to leave them be. But. I am a fanfic writer. And I am a filker. And I do think these are related.

One person compared fanfiction and the community around it to a quilting bee, and I *like* that image. I think the poster thought it was funny, but I don't.
