In today’s VERY special episode (recorded pre-Last Jedi) we are joined by Rachael and Kirsty of Scavenger’s Hoard to stan over our undying love of fanfic.
We discuss the ins and outs of the medium, its history from 1970s-onwards, our personal experiences with it and the importance of women in defining the genre. We also discuss how it differs from meta and why both formats need to be appreciated.
*Please note: In the recording Ohtze says that Strikethrough and Boldthrough occurred in 2017. This is incorrect and a slip of the tongue. Strikethrough and Boldthrough occurred in 2007.
