Evidently I am not up on my fanboy (or fangirl) short-hand...when I first saw the topic this morning, I thought 'fanfic' was just some nonsense word (no offense to the OP intended; I'm just being honest)...I had no idea it was a generally accepted term.

I've even been a writer at times, myself (not of celebrity fiction, but other things), and I didn't know. :huh: :codger:
Me either. Never heard of it and didn't realize it had such negative connotations... :huh: :eh:

Thanks for the welcome..

I saw someone else had mentioned a story they were working on in another thread, someone was all excited there 'almost done with their fanfic' so I thought there was a section of the site where they might have been posted and was curious.

I personally have no idea what "fanfic" is. I am assuming it has something to do with fandom and fiction. Not sure how than plays into what goes on here at the TRF and it probably doesn't at all to be honest. They is plenty to do and comment on around here without it that I can tell you... :codger:

hey, what turns you on turns you on and there's not much you can do about it. we're not trying to be dicks, but anyone would get made fun of if they came in here looking for rush-themed porno
Not all fic written about celebrities is porn...much of it is just character exposition stuff. And its also an exercise in seeing if, with limited information about a real person, can you 'fill in the blanks' in a realistic manner.

Most fan fiction is sexual in nature which is where the negative connotation comes from. Slash fan fiction is where two people of the same sex are hooked up together in a story.

Fanfic is fiction written by fans about a celebrity/band/whatever, and when appropriate, written in the same style as the original.  (So, Harry Potter fanfic would be written in the same style as the books.)  Fanfic is sometimes, but not always sexually-themed.  Topics could range from "more of the same" (so, another Harry Potter book, for example), to including the author as part of the story, to whatever else the author can imagine.

Wow, I was kind of excited about being here before all that... Way to make somone feel welcome.

I am new here as well, many years ago there were several other rush and geddy lee boards and one prolific member that was a terrific writer and wrote what I guess you would call rush fanfic(before that was even a word), some of it was pretty wild.

I have been off the boards for a while and wouldn't know where to direct you but maybe we can figure this place out together.

Well, I found one or two places online that have a few Rush stories, but not much I'm interested in...
Personally I don't think its any creepier than the average fan having fantasies, sexual or otherwise, or knowing or interacting with a favorite celebrity, and I'm sure that happens all the time.

Ok so I started to new thread for this comment.... So if you wanna add to it, please find the other one....

(((That all being said, I gotta say to you all...

Isn't it amazing that these three guys, out of all the humans in the world, were able to come together and do what they were born to do? Not just that, but with perfect compliment to each other's individual brand of musical genius??
Like they were always three parts of a whole that just needed to find each other?
Personally I am sort of blown away by that...)))

I have been a fan for going on 40 years now and am a dude so for me the sexual thing is out (not that there is anything wrong with that) but I have also never really thought about meeting them or dreamed of it. I am Neil's perfect fan as I am really not starstruck and really have never been about musicians, athletes etc. I just enjoy what Rush does, well at least most of it anyway ( after 85' not so much)... :lol:

Personally I think daydreaming about celebrities and what they might do in their off time is more of a girl thing to do :)
And I think I agree about the 'after 85' thing. I accept that they needed to explore, but I feel they wandered away from their foundations when they did so, but didn't they come back to it a bit after they ditched the heavy synth stuff?

Not in my view or at least not well anyway. HYF is good 8/10 and Presto is about 6/11 but after that is much of a blur and I became disinterested real quick. Everything Signals and back is better than anything after. Just my opinion...
