It's so wack to me that fanworks are generally only respected if it's a visual medium. Like, fanfiction is ridiculed, fangames have everyone up in arms about copyright infringement, and everyone thinks music based on another work is cringe.
But if you make a short film or draw real good then people will worship your unlicensed unofficial work.
Ask me about my bug spirit collection.
