This reminds me of one of my favorite conservation stories!!

When they were trying to bring Puffins back to islands on the US east coast they decided to do so with dummies. Puffins are very social, and as a result would want to land on islands that already have puffins. The dummies looked real from a distance, but were seriously lacking up close, held up by a single peg. Puffins, being social and wanting to fit in, followed suit:

Witch Tip #154

witchtips:

Wearing a peach pit around your neck will ward off evil.

Bad witch tip: several peach pits and a sling shot will ward of everything else

worse witch tip: a few peach pits correctly distilled will produce cyanide, which should sort yer problems out nicely.

So, when I was doing my thesis on whether or not fanfiction should be considered a legitimate genre of literature, my advising professor asked me for examples.  I gave him the generic ones, of course - “Pride & Prejudice and Zombies” is a horror fanfic of “Pride & Prejudice”, “50 Shades of Grey” is an erotica fic of “Twilight" - and that seemed to make him understand what fanfiction is, but not how it’s useful.  So I thought about it, and, after about a minute, I said, “Paradise Lost is basically a fanfiction of the Book of Genesis.  And The Divine Comedy is an epic self-insertion fic for Catholic doctrine.  So, basically, you were teaching us fanfiction last semester.”  I had never before seen a grown man’s eyes widen with such fear, incomprehension, disgust, awe, and understanding.

#does that mean the renaissance was almost entirely fan art?

Yes. Yes it does. All ur classic favs had the Renaissance version of DeviantArt. 

For real though, listen up, I’m in 14th to 18th Century literature right now and literally every piece of medieval and renaissance literature is fanfiction. Back then, it was quite popular to write your own version of a story. But frowned upon to write your own, original piece. I mean, look at how many tales have Sir Gawain in them–all written by different authors. There’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Wife of Bath’s Tale, Le Morte D'Arthur–just to name a few, he’s in fucking everything.

Not even to mention Arthur himself. Arthur’s tale has been retold so many times by so many different authors. When Sir Thomas Mallory wrote Le Morte D'Arthur, he read as much Arthurian literature as he could, used it as reference to write his own original telling of King Arthur. But like I said, that was frowned upon. He was so afraid of writing his own story for Arthur, he kept referring back to a “French book” that didn’t even exist.

Fanfiction quite literally made up all of medieval + renaissance literature (and art). It is in human nature.
