T-Rex: Dear fan fiction writers,
T-Rex: why bother?
T-Rex: Why not make up your own stories? Don't obey other writer's rules!
Utahraptor: I agree, T-Rex!
Utahraptor: We also shouldn't adapt other people's work by the same token!
T-Rex: Um... but... that's... not the same?

Questions for classroom discussion:
1. What do you think the author's true feelings on fan fiction are?
2. Could the author have phrased Utahraptor's counter-argument any more awkwardly?
3. Does it make the discussion ironic if you consider "The Dinosaur Whiteboard" fan fiction of "Dinosaur Comics?"
