    I hope this doesn’t cheapen publishing or book selling. I wonder this because fan fiction tends to be looked down upon by professional writers due to its usual amateur writing style and smutty nature. I also wonder how this will affect the “canon” of the movies, TV shows, video games, comics, etc. that these stories will be representing. Maybe this will turn out to be a good thing (it certainly will work for Amazon) I just wonder if fan fiction can get published and get its author’s paid, will Amazon open up more to publishing original fiction stories as well? Will original characters and ideas still get recognized or will creative minds be turned to fan fiction because it can make them easy money?
