So I started reading fanfiction a couple of years ago and I am surprised how much I’ve learned from it. I’m not talking about learning about a fandom I’m talking real word stuff.
So what am I talking about? Well, this hit me the other day when I was talking to someone who was talking about their eczema and the only reason I knew what that meant was because of fanfictions. seizures are something I thought I had a clear picture of going in and I was confident in that. Turns out it was completely wrong. I didn’t know there were different types and you weren’t supposed to hold a person down while they were seizing. I’m not the person who just reads the fic and believe everything in it. I do a little research too and I find out new things.
They also have the power to change people’s minds. This is very important. I come from a very homophobic sexist household. They try to disguise this as faith and I’m not saying having faith is a bad thing it is great but trying to use it to hide harmful behavior is unacceptable in my eyes. So basically all I heard for most of my life was bad things about the LGBTQ+ and I didn’t really know what it meant and fanfiction opened my eyes to this. It really has the power to change people. if I had been exposed in a different way I might be saying bad things. It really has changed my life.
fanfiction is one of the best art forms in my opinion. When I write fanfiction it is because of multiple reasons. By writing it I can get feelings and emotions out without having to make a world up. It allows me to make something that I’m already passionate about.
I just really love fanfiction.
Fanfiction has the power to change lives it is powerful.
I really hope this makes sensesubmitted by /u/cooldudewhowrites
