YES.

For 25 years, you and the folks you've gathered into this amazing collaboration have been publishing quality fanfiction about a better tomorrow.

And god knows, we need hope for a better tomorrow.

When this all came down on Tuesday, I turned off social media and turned on this Forum. WHY? Because...it's a safe place. Sure, it's fan fic, but art serves a purpose. It inspires. It gives hope. And WE REALLY REALLY NEED THAT RIGHT NOW.

I look at Adm. Ben Hutchins as the IDEAL of the person I want to be when I'm 400 years old, esp. the peretual college student view. That better economic social future everyone on the prog left is looking for? You built a gritty, messy universe that is its embodiment, and are realistic enough to present that universe as constantly under threat that ordinary and extrodinary people fight willingly and gladly.

Beyond that, UF CHANGED THE WORLD and is STILL CHANGING THE WORLD. UF launched the.fanfiction universe. And FanFiction.net. And TheForce.NET. And AO3. And DeviantArt. MILLIONS contribute to an expanding universe of ideas Your inital work was so inclusive and subversive. So much so, that this revolution in writing and storytelling has been driven by our most vunerable: children, women, GLBT, trans, and poly communities. Never have the silent had so much power or voice.

So please, celebrate your victories --you spawned the the greatest expansion of the written word in history. UF deserve to be marked down, shouted from the electronic rooftops, and never, ever, forgotten.

yours,
t.

p.s. and honestly, someone should call HuffPost and get you an interview. Or NPR. Or something. Maybe I'll call Ira Glass this weekend, if no one else will. WORLD SHAKING. WORLD CHANGING.
