Checkmate asks: So, there was a brief period in HP fandom history when it seemed like every other “Big Name Fan” was make the transition to being a professional writer and was removing all of their Fanwork from the Internet as a result. One of the reasons most frequently given for the removal was that the writers wanted to repurpose the original content of their fan fiction for their professional work. I’d really like to know what you think about this practice as both a professional writer and a fanfic author and if you’ve ever had an idea for a fanfic that at some point in the creative process became an original work or vice versa?
