    In this paper I review developments in discussions of fiction and emotion over the last decade, concerning both the descriptive question of how to classify fiction-directed emotions, and the normative question of how to evaluate those emotions. Although many advances have been made on these topics, a mistaken assumption is still common: that we must hold either that fiction-directed emotions are (empirically or normatively) the same as other emotions, or that they are different. I argue that we should reject this dichotomy.
