Robert Jordan is one author that has said, hands down fan fiction is not okay. There is the issue of further works by the owner of the IP or in Robert Jordan's case; his wife and Brandon Sanderson. What if someone happens to come up with a story about the Age of Legends that is very close to the concepts stated in his earlier works? Then his wife and Brandon use his notes to come out with an official version that is similar to the fan fiction story? Now you are in a quagmire.

All of the comments that I ever read that Jordan made in regard to fan fiction was that he didn't want anyone using his characters, but that was it. So no love story between Rand and Egwene, but if you want to write about some random person and their adventures in Randland then you are okay, as long as you didn't lift any of his characters.
