I think the thing with fanfics is though, they always come with disclaimers and they're read *as fiction*. We all know it's fairly unlikely that they engage in threesomes or the cousins wrestle naked in front of roaring fires, plus it's published discretely online and sometimes locked down in some way. It's just a piece of fandom and all fandoms generate it. It's different from a book which is advertised to the masses and sold for profit (whether or not he wanted to get a mortgage deposit out of it or not, he'll be making money off it) and Myers is purporting to present, as he sees it, an element of truth. When words are printed on paper, they tend to take on a sense of authority (rather than fanfic free-floating pseudonymously through the internet). Having read a snippet - something about Nicky and Richey talking on the phone about someone's smelly feet - I can safely say that I've read better-written fanfic! In fact, I'd rather read fanfic that Ben's book. Fanfic doesn't claim to tell the truth in any way at all.

I find it weird how when I'm feeling angry or a bit down listening to The Holy Bible makes me feel better, yet if I listen to it when I'm really happy it drags my mood down.

I listen to the dance remix of SKON more than I listen to the actual song.

should I be ashamed?

Listening to a dance remix of agadoo is more forgivable than listening to SKON.
