1. What do you consider a songfic to be?
Wikipedia defines songfic as: "A songfic, also known as a song fic or a song-fic, is a work of fiction interspersed with the lyrics of a particular song." This would be on par, simplistically speaking, with my fic A Birthday Wish, or the more elaborately executed Concrete Angel, a NCIS fic by triskellion.
Myself, I define songfic as a piece of fanfiction that uses a song's lyrics as the storyline (e.g. my fic Lips of an Angel or Bittersweet Symphony) or as simple inspiration for the fic (e.g. Can't Cry Hard Enough and They Said a Hundred Times I Should Have Died).
Feel free to link to examples--I'm not just pimping my work out, here. Since I've written them, it's easier for me to use them for reference.
2. Do you like songfics, as you define them?
Yes, I love a well-executed songfic. Sadly, a lot of teeny-boppers use the format of a songfic and it falls very flat. But when it works, it just works, to me.
3. Have you ever written a songfic, or would you be horrified at yourself for doing so? And, do you read a fic knowing it's a songfic or do you pass it up on principle?
As evidenced earlier, I like using the concept of songfic. I will do so in the future. It doesn't matter to me if something is a songfic, I'll read it if I think I'll be interested. I know, however, that not everyone is of the same mind.
Hmm. Well, there's probably more I could ask, but I can't think of it right now (I'm claiming sleep deprivation, as is my right after the day I've had). Please, I'd really like to know what you all think.
