Thirty Day Fan Fiction Writing Meme. Day #13

Day 13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

Well, all of my writing is based heavily on canon.

However, as anything slash and most things het are based on my interpretation of canon, then I guess in part it is fanon. After all the majority of may pairings are not factual canon, however much I may like them to be. But that 'small' fact aside *g* everything is based on canon or on my own fanon, i.e. recurring OCs or themes or 'facts' created by me based on things that are said/implied in canon. I have never intentionally written a story using another writer's fanon.

For the most part, writing fanfic hasn't changed the way I see the original source material as for the vast majority of my pairings, I only started to write fanfic after I'd seen at least some of the original source material. However, in some cases where I started writing a pairing quite some way into the original source material, I do view and interpret the interaction between the pairing differently from the way I viewed it before I started to write them.
