Sure here's one. In my experience with other fandoms and in this one as well (though to a lesser extent), fan fiction writers are usually seen as the red headed bastard stepchildren of the fandom.

 

Does fan fiction get an unfair reputation?

 

Do you consider it a viable starting point for a writer aspiring to become a published author, or should it be consider only a repository for fan labor/love?

 

Why do you think that Wattpad has more accepted image (it has been attracting successful Self Published and Traditionally Published Authors)?

 

 

I'm curious as to your view since I have read a few quality stories on FimFiction

As someone who writes fanfiction in his spare time, I'd say it gets a bit too much hate. People expect show quality work from fanfiction when really, most people who write them arern't professional level writers like the show writers so they really shouldn't expect much

 

As for the second one, they'd have to see how good they are writing original stuff before they can try for say a published author.

 

I have no idea about the third one.
