ellen_fremedon: overlapping pages from Beowulf manuscript, one with a large rubric, on a maroon ground (Default)
This is fascinating to me--my experience as a reader has been that reading fanfic pretty much ruined me for original short stories, because the level of shared background knowledge in fanfic lets writers do things in 2000 words that would need to be novella-length in an original setting. In recent years, I've found that I can still read short fiction that's set mostly in the here and now with one speculative element, but that if there's any significant worldbuilding, I get to the end of the story and feel like I've read the first chapter of something.
