@ Xantenise:I generally agree. I'm reading an alternate-universe (AU) fanfic right now that takes things in a radically different direction from the canon series and yet keeps the characters in character and the developments believable, and it's just plain awesome. It is interesting to see how things might have been different.However, I really, really don't like the concept of "personal canon", as to me it always sounds too much like someone saying "I didn't like what happened, so I'm going to say it didn't happen." No matter how much a fan likes something, that doesn't give them the right to say what did or didn't happen; that right's reserved for the canon's creator(s). I didn't like some of the stuff that happened in the latest novel in my current favorite series, but there's no chance I'll try to say it didn't happen and claim it as 'personal canon'. *eyeroll*(If that's not what you meant by "personal canon", then I apologize for misinterpreting. ^_^)
