Movie Reviews by Jarrod Edson and edited by Sarah Lehman   Scooby:  In my opinion, it’s bad or just meh at best.

Categories: Hellos With Fellows, Sarah Lehman

On June 17th, 2020, at 1 PM, I signed on to Zoom for a video chat session involving a ‘Jeopardy’ game.

Then, they began what… Read More

Part 6: History of Fan Fiction Conclusion

What’s so important about the history of fan fiction, you may ask? Aside from possibly helping you on Jeopardy, it makes the concept seem less trivial.

Part 5: ‘Creators’ Involvement’

In my last post, I talked about how fan fiction is something you may hear about without actively searching for it—although frankly speaking, it’s more likely to be discussed on the Internet than in, say, a college cafeteria)—including a mention of creators’ opinions.
