    Summary

    Okay, after a long delay (for which I apologize profusely), we are finally back with Episode 3. Hooray! In this episode, we follow on from last time with a discussion of what constitutes fanfiction and how it is best described and understood. Is there really a good metaphor that can encompass this whole crazy, multi-faceted world? Thus we tackle "Archontic Literature: A Definition, a History, and Several Theories of Fan Fiction" by Abigail Derecho. It is the first chapter in Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse's Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet: New Essays (2006). We hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Jack thought his first year in the NHL would be 100% about hockey, but the reality is so much more complicated. (AU where the Goodbye for the Summer comics didn’t happen, because I had already written 80K words of this. But just because it’s canon doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy long, angsty, get-together stories, amirite?)

    Summary

    Out of everything wrong with the world, out of everything horrible that has happened to Stiles, out of kanimas and werewolves and sociopathic hunters and batshit insane high school students, Stiles had thought that his eventual and inevitable demise would be slightly more dramatic than this.

    Summary

    “Am I sacked?”

    M doesn’t bother answering James’ attempt at humor but instead continues in his point. “Since your return from the Skyfall operation, which was over a year ago I might add, you have not taken one day of leave, no holiday of which I'm aware. You haven’t rested the requisite 48 hour period between mission and report.”

    James takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly.

    “You are not a young man,” M says plainly. “Everyone, even James Bond, needs time to let wounds heal, both physical and mental. Pushing yourself is going to get you or someone else killed eventually.”

    “So not another mission then?” James asks and moves to stand.

    **

    Or, James Bond is forced to take a few days off, runs into Q at a kebab shop, starts playing World of Warcraft, and takes a trip to Witney to meet Q's family (for reasons of national security, of course).
