I can't even imagine how cool it would be as a writer to see your work take on a huge new life beyond your actual words: movies, fan fiction, how about wizard rock? It's amazing. I got crazy-excited when one young reader (hi Lexi!) created a super-cool faerie character who could live in my fictional world. Even to spawn spoofs would be amazing. I got this one from Fuse #8 and couldn't resist reposting it. The first one is the actual Twilight trailer. Watch that first. The second one is such a cute spoof. I love it. I don't know how they kept straight faces!
The real one:
Now the spoof:
Isn't that awesome?
Also, I just read HERE about other cool fan creativity -- the world of Wizard Rock! I knew there were Harry Potter-themed rock bands, but I didn't know there were over 400 of them!!! Steph's husband Jarrod actually got taped and interviewed for MTV for his contribution to the genre. How cool is that?
It is definitely a dream of mine to one day write something that spawns fan fiction. Some day.
