Challenging readers to rethink what they read and why, the author questions the aesthetic assumptions that have led to the devaluing of fan fiction-a genre criticized as tasteless and derivative-and other ""guilty pleasure"" reading (and writing) including romance and fantasy. The complicated relationship between ""fanfic"" and intellectual property is discussed in light of the millennia-old tradition of derivative literature, before modern copyright law established originality as the hallmark of great fiction. ""Absorbed reading""-the practice of immersing oneself in the narrative versus critically ""reading from a distance""-is a strong motive for fanfiction's appropriation of canon characters and worlds.
