Ficcing and Hypocrisy

owlmoose wrote a meta post talking about getting ideas from other people's fic. At one point she said:

So I don't see how anyone who writes fanfic can object when someone looks at a story she's written and says "I want to see more" or "I wonder if I could take it in this other direction?" Because that's what she did when she wrote her fic in the first place. I won't quite say it would be hypocritical to object, but I think it leans in that direction.

I'll say it for her, then. I think it's hypocritical, period.
