    First of all, the most controversial quality of fan fiction is its transformative nature, which is the most important factor of fair use. In accessing the first factor of fair use, it depends on whether fan fiction can promote and contribute to the progress of the original by transforming and adding new insights and understandings (Leval, 1990). Fan fiction is transformative as it creates multiple situations for the characters and reflects new themes.

    Rising Action Before the climax could happen, there had to be some rising action, and in this book, there were lots of rising action. One of the most important parts, I feel, was when they found out the dinosaurs were breeding, and steadily getting higher. The numbers rose from 238 to 292. Another big rising action is when Dennis Nedry programs the system, as well as the power, to shut down, then steals dinosaur embryos to sell them.

    brings in their fans and that can in turn lift them to the status of heroism. I feel it is not just the natural ability of the entertainer that elevates them to the status of hero but also their ability to relate to their fans and have a positive impact on their day to day life. I agree with Klapp in his argument that the fans elevate the individual to the hero status after they have acted early in their career. What keeps them in that…
