I agree that having to pay for fanfic probably wouldn't really work out for anyone. However, I disagree that if fans had to pay for it, we would all apply the same standards to it that we apply to original fiction. Undoubtedly some people would, but some also wouldn't.

Personally I love fanfic because I connect with it emotionally in a way I almost never connect with original fiction. And that's less about the quality of the writing and more about the characters and relationships being written about. As long as a fic is good enough to be emotionally engaging, it's essentially giving me what I want from fanfic. Really excellent writing is just a bonus.

Not true. There is already quite a bit of legitimate published fanfiction out there that is bought and paid for, and while not all of it is a stunning success, it does just fine. Look at all the published novels based on characters from Jane Austen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and other works in the public domain. Look at movie novelizations and tie-ins for things like Star Wars, Star Trek and many others - the authors are paid handsomely for those, I think it works out very well for them.

Lol, I mean as a standard. I mean if you went online and before you could read a fic you had to pay for it, so that everything was pay-to-access.

What you're talking about is cherry picking a few specific transformative fanworks and carrying them into the world of published original fiction.

What I'm talking about is monetizing fandom.

Very different things.

DA

Plus anon is kinda ignoring that Sturgeon's law applies to original fiction as well.
