I am thinking about making a fan fiction of one of my character I have in my head, I already have it written out now but I have one problem: My big sister

She thinks she knows everything and I'm 14 by the way, she saw me typing out a fan fiction about my Mario princess oc.

She say that I was going to post it she told me "Your going to get in trouble for this I don't make fan fictions it's art thief"

"If they catch you making a fan fiction they will sue you!"

I have started writing again but I haven't posted them online can.

can I get your view on this please? Is this art thief?

It's kind of like drawing celebrity portraits, or fan art. Technically it is illegal, but as long as you're not selling it, they usually don't mind.

Look at E.L James (the author of 50 shades of grey). 50 shades of grey was originally a fanfic of Bella and Edward (Twilight) when she started selling it she changed the names. Stephenie Meyer could have sued for using her characters for the original fan fic, but opted not to. No telling :shrug:

It's true. That's the origin of 50 Shades of Grey. Look at background [link]

They have interviews with Kristen Stewart about it too.

Parody is not art theft.

Ahh pesky older siblings. Information from them is usually false. I would know, since I am the youngest of 4 in my family
