A dilemma...

Apparently, Mom let it slip to a teenage fan (I'm not sure if it's this one) that I write fanfic. Now she wants to see it. (The exact conversation went like, "Can I write fanfic of your stories?" "Sure--I mean, I'd kinda be hypocritical if I said no, since my son writes the stuff" "Really? IwannaseeIwannaseeIWANNASEE!")

So...I have two choices:
  1. Send her links, probably to my two MT fics.
  2. Pretend that I don't publish them.
I should just do the first, but for reasons I don't understand I don't want to. Nor do I want to do the second, though--that would be lying.

I wonder if the fan thinks you write fanfic of your mom's stories.

Don't think so, but I don't know what the original wording is.

I would be completely unsurprised if it's just that she wants to see the fanfic of a son of her favorite author. Fans can be scary like that...the "secret monastery of webcomicry" strip isn't too far off...

You're telling US how scary fans can be?!?

*shakes head* A fan cannot understand how scary (s)he is. One must see the other side of fandom to fully comprehend the depths of a fan's depravity.

Well, you can always stall for time until you figure your reasons out.
