Like I said, 'how would you feel' can be a dangerous question. This is *me*, I came up anime through the hentai side of the fandom, the things that would bother me are not necessarily the things that would bother other people.LateWhiteRabbit wrote:I think it depends on the nature of the fan work as well. Sure, you may love to have your characters name-checked or have people create fan art for the publicity, but what if someone put the Cute Knight in a porn game, or drew a picture of her being raped or beheaded? You'd probably quickly reverse yourself on being thrilled.papillon wrote: 'How would you feel' can be a dangerous question - I bet many of us would be THRILLED to have our characters mentioned insomeone else's game if the game was fun or well-circulated, for the publicity.
Hentai fanart is an interesting case, as I wouldn't feel comfortable giving anyone official permission but I would generally be happy to pretend I didn't know about it as long as it wasn't for profit, even if it was something icky. I have seen people write porny fanfics of my characters (not often though) and was amused by them.
In general I don't care as long as it's non-profit but there are things I can't put an official stamp of approval on, if you see what I mean.
