So, I was reading [community profile] fandomsecrets today and there was a secret about thinking that it's plagiarism/theft for a fanfiction writer to write something about fanart without the artist's permission is near enough to theft. So now I'm curious: what do you guys think about this? Do you think that fans (who are borrowing from an original creator) have a right to say that nothing can be borrowed from them? Or borrowed only with personal permission? What do you think about people borrowing things from your work? Are you in favour of having transformative works created based on your stuff, or not?

I know that I personally squee like a little idiot whenever someone creates something based on something I wrote (one of the reasons I love big bangs so much), so I'm curious to hear your thoughts :)

Also, tumblr rec time! [tumblr.com profile] simplypotterheads is a new Harry Potter tumblr and there's LOTS OF NIFTINESS GOING ON THERE, GUYS; YOU KNOW HOW GAMMA LOVES NIFTINESS.  Also, it's doing Slytherin-themed posts right now, so lots of Slytherin things!  

Oh hey, also, Gamma has a tumblr question: Why is there an option to "ignore" a user?  Does this serve some function that just unfollowing them won't?  Anyone here who knows tumblr better than me...?
