Please pardon the intrusion! I've added you as a friend because you've indicated that you are interested in fan fiction in your user interests. If you read fan fiction, do you have a few minutes to contribute to a project on fans and fan fiction?

My name is Katherine Morrissey and I am currently working on my dissertation at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I've been researching fans and fan culture for some time and I want to publicly share some of my past research with fans/fan communities. I've created a website called Fandom Then/Now to share research from 2008 work and the thoughts/questions that are driving my research today. I'm hoping to collect comments and observations from fans (you!) on the project and on fan fiction.

If you have time, please visit Fandom Then/Now and share your thoughts. I would also appreciate it if you shared this link with anyone else that you believe might be interested.

The Fandom Then/Now website is not a formal survey or structured questionnaire. Instead, Fandom Then/Now is intended to be an ongoing conversation/brainstorming session where I share past work and some of the questions that are propelling my current research. This is designed to be a participatory process. Along with the past findings, there are questions spread across the website. Please comment wherever you compelled to share your own thoughts and observations.

As you do this, please know that your comments are being used for research purposes and may be incorporated into the project. I take your privacy very seriously. If you would like to take steps to screen your identity please visit the project's Protecting My Identity page to initiate this process.

Since media fans are spread across so many different websites and fandoms, I want to reach out to as many different fans as I can. However, I can't do this without your help. If you know anyone who might be interested in participating, please help me spread the word! Feel free to send this posting along to your friends and publicize this project elsewhere. The project can also be shared on Twitter, Tumblr, Dreamwidth, and LiveJournal.

Visit http://katiedidnt.net/fandomthennow to review the project and share your thoughts. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment below or email me at fandomthennow@katiedidnt.net. (Comments are screened to protect your privacy.)

Thank you so much for your help in making this a success!
