So, I’m currently struggling through the audiobook version of Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell. I’ll save my issues with the book for a later post; at the moment, I’m still hoping it improves. But I just finished a part where Cath, the main character, turns in a piece of fanfiction she wrote to an upper level writing course. Her teacher rightfully gives her assignment a failing grade. Cath then has the audacity to argue with her teacher about she’s only “borrowing” the characters.
When I was in college, I spent plenty of time reading fanfiction. I may have even written a piece here or there. But I never would have imagined turning in a piece of fanfiction to a college professor. Yikes. I really am trying to like this book, but the main character just annoys me.
