Truth and Measure – A Devil Wears Prada Fanfic

What makes a good fanfic? Stellar writing, precise voicing, and brilliant one-liners certainly help! In this episode, we discuss a fanfic called “Truth and Measure” by Telanu, in the Devil Wears Prada universe. We talk about why this fanfic really works, including the power dynamics between the two main characters and its funniest lines. We also dig into bigger questions about the genre such as: what’s the appeal for us? How would we write fanfic? And, if someone can write as well as Telanu, why would she spend her time writing fanfic instead of making money on commercial fiction (hint, it might have something to do with creative license).
