Do you think there's an age that someone should stop being into fanfiction? I get really self-conscious about the fact that I'm 20 years old and I love reading fanfiction and really want to start writing fanfiction but my being self-conscious about it makes me hold back.
I’ll be 22 in June and I still read fanfiction. I still write fanfiction (something I started when i was about 9 years old).
There’s no way there can be a certain age where it’s supposed to stop.
I think as long as you’re creative and you enjoy what you’re doing, then read/write fanfiction for as long as you wish.
Trying to say that there’s a cut off age is ridiculous and it’s like saying we shouldn’t enjoy movies/books from our youth.
You bet your ass I’m over here watching Tarzan, Lion King, Hercules, and eating baby bottle pops and those circles smile french fry things. There’s no age on anything in this world (well, obviously illegal things but….that’s beside the point) unless we put an age to it.
I write fanfiction and I’m going to college to be a creative writer, and I can vouch that my fanfiction writing has helped me to become the writer I am today and will be next month.
So, point of this story? Read all the fanfiction you desire, love, and don’t let anyone tell you differently!
