The Jemima Manifesto

A Voyager fan manifesto, à la Liz.

  1. I think publishing RPF is wrong, unless you have the Real Person’s permission.
  2. I don’t particularly care if you think it’s offensive of me to say what I think. If you choose to read insults into other people’s opinions, then I’d recommend you stop reading other people’s opinions.
  3. I have no interest in slash, mainly because I don’t see a non-political motive for changing canon sexual orientations (in either direction). I’m not in fandom for the gender politics. See #4 also.
  4. I have no interest in smut. I’m not in fandom for titillation, pornography, or free biology lessons.
  5. I have very little interest in angst, but I don’t mind a good tragedy.
  6. There’s nothing in the world like a good crew story, unless it’s a good AU.
  7. I have a muse and she’s not afraid to use me.
  8. I have a not-so-secret weakness for J/P, and a well-known one for C/7. I’m still working on the T/K - the bun is in the oven.
  9. No, you may not archive my fic. Why should your site get hits out of my labor? Feel free to link my fic with the links provided at the beginning or end of each story, but don’t think I’m going to pay any fic taxes to get you to do that, either. I’m not in fandom for the marketing degree.
  10. It’s the 24th century, people! Please stop killing your characters in childbirth.
