Fan fiction: good or bad?

Fan fiction is when fans of something, say clone wars, write stories about the same characters and settings as the official stories. I like them because they often explore things that are more explicit or show a different side of characters. I’m currently reading “whatever happened to captain rex?” on fanfiction.net. The story is about when captain Rex is crashed onto another planet and stranded. Ahsoka and Rex are lovers in the story. My only problem is sometimes these fictional stories make one lose sight of the real character. Ahsoka is not in love with Rex. Whenever I see Rex now I think of him and Ahsoka, even though in “real life” their story never happened. So it’s good for an entertaining evening just as long as we remember these stories ARE fiction, a fans fantasy. 🙂
