The people who write fic are usually the sorts of people who are voracious media consumers. I've seen people talking about going out and buying a whole series of something just to have recent viewing/reading of canon for a Yuletide story. They're the sorts of folks that will spread news about a new release (for good or ill, but all publicity is good publicity, right? Well, mostly.) I think authors who "disallow" fic are shooting themselves in the foot. I tend to avoid authors that do that just because I don't want to go looking and be disappointed. (I find that they sometimes conflate ficcers with pirates too, which is very offputting.) It's all annecdata, but I'd say yes, or at least it doesn't hurt.

Her concern doesn't seem to be so much with the writing of the fic itself as the fact that she equates putting it on the 'net as "publishing." The way I read it, it's okay to write it for yourself or to share with your friends, but, in her words, to not "publish[] and proliferat[e] stories based on my copyrighted material via the Internet or any other highly distributable form."

So you can write it so long as you don't publish it, and putting it on the internet counts as publishing.

Which, for me, defeats the purpose. I don't have RL friends that I can share fanfic, since all the friends I used to share fic with in RL have either moved to fandoms I don't read or moved (and I lost touch).

BTW, despite the fanfic restriction, I still love Green Rider. <3

(And, finally, this kinkmeme has utterly destroyed me. I just wrote that last "fanfic" as "fanfuck". FML.)
