Have you ever caught your girlfriend writing fanfiction and claimed it was actual writing? If so, you’re not alone. Many people make fun of fanfiction writers, claiming that their work isn’t real writing.
A user asked, Am I wrong for making fun of my girlfriend for writing Fanfiction and claiming it’s actual writing? We want to hear from you.
The Original Poster (OP) has a girlfriend, Abby (f31). She and the OP (m33) have been together for a few months, and this Easter, OP was going to introduce her to his family. They haven’t moved in together yet.
What Does OP Say
OP says, “Abby is quite smart; she has a Ph.D. and works in her field. I only have a BA, so you can imagine my surprise when the hot and smart woman wanted to date me. Anyway, I digress; Abby’s passion is writing, although she’s never allowed me to read anything she wrote. She dreams of writing a book and says she’s practicing and trying to draft things.”
What Happened Recently?
One day, OP was staying over and fell asleep, and she went to her office to write. When OP woke up, OP peered over her shoulder when she was writing and saw names that sounded familiar. He asked her about this, and she admitted to writing Fanfiction.
What Does OP Do
OP says, “Apparently, she already wrote 100k Fanfiction and is working on her third one. She says it’s writing practice, and she loves it. I told her it’s cringy and if she was serious about her book, she’d write it by now because she’s pretty much already written 2 books if only they weren’t Fanfiction. She got silent and told me to leave her alone.”
What Happened on Easter?
When OP introduced her to my family, OP mentioned that she has a Ph.D. His brother and sister got impressed and asked about it. Abby tried to tell them, but OP interjected and told them not to be so impressed because she wastes her time writing silly Fanfiction, so he doesn’t know how she even got her doctorate.
OP Meant It As A Joke
According to OP, it was meant to be a joke, but Abby was angry. She called him a jerk. She wouldn’t talk to OP for the rest of the day and asked OP to drive her home. OP tried to come in, but she told him she wanted to be alone and write her Fanfiction. He told her she was childish but left anyway.
OP Wants To Know
OP says, “I haven’t heard back from her since then, and I told my sister, and my sister agreed with Abby. I tried to call Abby, but she texted me with “jerk,” and nothing else. My sister thinks I owe Abby an apology, but I don’t think I did anything wrong, yet Abby is annoyed.”
He wants to know if he was wrong. Here is what others have to say:
“I interjected and told them not to be so impressed because she wastes her time writing silly Fanfiction, so I don’t know how she even got her doctorate.”
“What a disgusting thing to say. You are a giant jerk.
Fanfiction is extremely popular; millions of people read and write it and enjoy it. There are even popular websites where people post their fanfic stories and get recognition and kudos for their works. Often it leads them to become published authors as well. Besides, she’s doing it because it makes her happy, and she can practice writing this way.
You are just jealous she’s creative and has a Ph.D… I wish her well in her fanfic writing adventures, far away from you! You are wrong.”
You’re an Emotional Abuser
“He’s so insecure that he has to use emotional abuse tactics to put her down, so she thinks she deserves to be treated like this.”
Fanfiction is Real
“You’re wrong. Fanfiction is writing. Ever heard of 50 Shades of Gray? That series started as Twilight fanfiction. You were rude, and insulted her writing hobby, her degree, and her intelligence.
Yes, you really were a massive jerk, and I think this is a case where you don’t realize it yet, but you’re already an ex.”
