Comment on InDeath.net Fan Fiction is Moving to the AO3

  1. In Death fan fiction actually exists? I thought Nora Roberts—aka J. D. Robb—made it clear she didn’t want fan fiction made on her stuff.

    1. Not all those who wander are lost

      According to https://fanlore.org/wiki/Professional_Author_Fanfic_Policies - "Roberts, Nora (J. D. Robb). In Death, Bridal Quartet, Circle Trilogy and many other series and books. Despite being on FanFiction.Net's unpostable list[88], has said that she doesn't mind fanfic and she'd "say on your own site, or a site that supports or is structured for fanfic--go for it, and have a good time."

      (However, AO3 does not prevent fic from being posted even if an author has said they disagree with it.)

      1. I've been writing an InDeath fanfic on that forum, and I decided to place them on hiatus because of J.D. Robb's request. I'm having second thoughts now :D

    2. Open Doors and the AO3 do not have a policy against archiving works without the permission of the author of the source material. However, if you're interested, you can read more about the history of fanworks archiving at InDeath.net on its Fanlore page: https://fanlore.org/wiki/InDeath.net_Fan_Fiction
