What fuss? It was my mildly stated opinion of fanfic.
I think I said this elsewhere, so excuse me if I am redundant. But my fanfic sagas, Exodus-The Weer Family and Family; Weer Star Trek, are ways I release stress. Yes, they are mindless soap operas to some degree, but as I write them, and have no idea where they are going, its like watching a TV show in my mind. And now, nearly 400 pages later, the Weers are like family to me. Yeah..I know..I'm a nut...but it is a great stress reliever. You ought to try creating your own TREK fiction.
