Is anyone else a fan of both J.D. Robb and Seanan McGuire?  
I just realized that I have no idea what either JD Robb's or Seanan McGuire's policies are on fanfic. I guess I should try to find out. Because I desperately, desperately want to read a crossover fic in which Mavis Freestone has a conversation with the Luidaeg.

I dropped that plot bunny on Dale, who suggested one possible setting: Mavis's agent runs a contest where fans submit entries to win an evening with her. Someone with a very weak sense of self-preservation sends in a joke entry with the Luidaeg's contact information. That entry is chosen, and Mavis drops by for a visit. It turns out the Luidaeg is a secret fan, and actually has all of Mavis's vids and an autographed life-size poster of Mavis wearing three spangles and a dab of spirit gum (all safely tucked away in a tightly warded room, of course).

We giggled about this for at least 20 minutes last night.

Also, if any of y'all are SSBBeings, I realized last night that Mavis is that ficton's version of Fnordy: Everyone is *crazy* about her!

I can't remember if it's been outright stated anywhere, but I'm pretty sure Seanan's OK with fanfic. Especially given how much of it she writes. :-)

With the important qualifier that SHE MUST NOT EVER SEE IT. Because at that point, The Publisher gets involved, and C&Ds get sent out, and it becomes No Fun At All for anyone involved, including Seanan. (We discussed this at some length at a signing I attended earlier this year.)

That seems to be a popular view these days.

I totally love Mavis! I love it when she is featured prominently in one of Eve and Roarke's stories!

I do like Seanan McGuire's work. I have her latest book in the trunk of the car. I have't heard her music yet. The budget is limiting me to books at this point.
She won the Campbell award at WorldCon this year! Yippee!
