S.E. Hinton Responds to Outsiders Fan Fiction

The Outsiders novelist S.E. Hinton took to Twitter to talk about fan fiction earlier this week. FanFiction.net counts more than 6,300 fan fiction stories about her beloved novel.

Hinton noted “I normally do not have a problem with fanfics,” but responded to one fan fiction author who imagined an unexpected pregnancy (contains NSFW language) in her classic series. Hinton had an unequivocal response: “bangs head on desk … no no no.” You can read all her thoughts in the Storify post embedded below.

Earlier this year, Hinton told School Library Journal: “I have several things going on. I’m eternally wasting my time on Twitter. I’m also in the middle of a very superficial comedic supernatural thriller thing that I would like to finish. Also, I’m going to be working on webisodes in conjunction with the University of Tulsa film students based on my short stories.” (Author photo via)
