Do you write/read fanfiction /co/?
>>
>>79092874
Yeah. I read a lot of Marvel comics.
>>
>>79092874
No, this is always autistic homosexual love stories and awful crossovers.
>>
>>79093245
Then why not write one that isn't homosexual love stories and awful crossovers?
>>
>>79092874
Yes, and it's better than yours
>>
>>79093284
> not shitty homosexual love stories
shitty heterosexual love stories or worse: CROSSOVERS shitty love stories, same annoying shit.

> not awful crossovers
awful autistic sequel, prequel or shitty parody.
>>
read it all the time. i need help.
>>
>>79093329
I'll admit that the majority of fanfiction is awful but there are some good ones there and some REALLY good ones as well that makes me sad when it's over.
>>
of course there are going to be shitty fanfictions.
especially of PG stuff.
but hey, rather autistic cartoon fanfic written by a 12 year old who has just started out writing than a retarded fic for an adult show written by an adult
>>
>>79092874
I'm actually writing one. For a Disney cartoon of all things. It's strange, never read or wrote it much and then this one movie made me into a shipper.
>>
>>79093393
what are you writing.
as a frequent fanfic reader i might give you a few basic guide lines
>>
I write. It's a fun way to practice.

Nothing currently going at the moment, but I was thinking of starting something about this game.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/1225279/chapters/2510527

The ridiculously long hiatus is due to moving and starting uni etc, but I've been working on a new chapter which is currently at some 7k words.
Chapter 2 is the worst one, I think. I like the writing in later chapters more.

Feel free to comment either here or directly on the fic comments, thanks a lot for your time and effort.
>>
>>79092874
God no.

>>79092874
No, it's 99.99% mary sue inserts or shitty stories written solely to pander to the authors ship.

and I can't be bothered to find the 0.01% of possibly decent stories


To put it one way its like diving into an olympic swimming pool full of diarrhea for a bar of 24 carat gold that may or may not be in there

I write occasionally as practice to improve my original fiction. Sometimes I just get an idea stuck in my head and have to write it.

Fanfic has existed for centuries, the internet just brought it to the fore.

I read sometimes but don't write. Usually I look for stuff that feels faithful to the original work and has some kind of new adventure plot. It's rare to find them among all the romance, shipping and smut, but every once in a while I just feel the need to look for them anyway.

>>79092874

I was thinking of doing something like having an OC in the DC universe but mainly treating it like one of those "new hero" titles where they have their own supporting cast and villains and every once in a while an established hero or villain shows up.

Thoughts?

Also, any general tips, places to post, etc. for an aspiring fanfiction writer?
>>
Yes, frequently. Hell, I'm reading some at work right now.

I write it occasionally but I don't feel motivated to write anything often.

I once read a SW fanfiction that was so good I thoght it was canon

The only problem I have is that when I go on a site like a03 the material there is usually hard core gay 50 shades of grey sex fanfiction. With no plot. Fanfiction.net is way better
>>
>>79094290
Yep. It's the ship that caught me, who hadn't read any fanfic in over a decade, who had never written any fanfic, who didn't much like Disney at all, and who am now, 2 years after the movie, still working on a fanfic of all things.

Well, it got me into writing. I actually signed up for a creative writing course because of it all. I swear if I ever end up getting a book published I'll dedicate it to Hans

>>79092874
Me and girlfriend read Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fanfiction together, usually FitzSimmons stuff. We also read Batman/Catwoman material and more recently we've been reading Until Dawn and Punished Snake/Quiet stories.

Yes. And I'm paid to do it.

No, it's not my own fanfiction writing.

It's always kids with too much money who want me to write their stuff. Right now I'm bouncing between Minecraft Fanfiction, and Voltron Fanfiction. It's kind of weird, but hey it's their money.

Interactions with NPCs I like that don't get a lot of attention from the fandom (Neon Parrot and Mars, to name the most prominent two).

Yeah, the erotic ones to masturbate to. Rarely do I read fanfiction that's an actual story. I'll admit it's a guilty pleasure to come across bad ones and laugh at them, though.

Depends. Fiverr usually gets them. I advertise my writing account there. Upwork gets a few. I also link on social media, Deviantart, and Roleplay forums too to write stories. It was through Fiverr someone found me to write the Minecraft fanfiction. Apparently it's a thing I guess, though some of the stories he wanted me to write were weird.

> “Barry, remember when I asked you if you were hungry for my feet?” Toot smiled.
> “Yeah.” Barry happily said as he was rubbing her wet feet in his face.
> “Well, let’s make this more… interesting.” Toot replied.
> She moved her feet away from Barry’s face and used the spray cheese on her feet. Barry looked on in excitement as Toot was covering her whole foot in the spray cheese. She raised her feet to Barry.
> “You want some of my cheesy feet?” Toot asked.
> Without saying a word, Barry grabbed both her feet and started licking all of the cheese off her feet.
> Toot moaned and moaned after every lick. Barry was getting the cheese in his mouth and all over his face. He sucked her toes clean and made sure there was no more cheese on her feet. It took about 20 minutes to clean both of her feet.
> “That felt sooooo good.” Toot moaned. Round 2?”
> “I’m ready.” Barry replied.
> Toot moved her feet closer to her again and rubbed the chocolate sauce all over both of her feet and waved them in Barry’s face.
> “Here’s your dessert.” Toot smiled.
> Barry quickly grabbed her feet again and once again licked all of the chocolate off her cute feet, sucking them and kissing them, making sure no more chocolate was on her majestic feet. Toot was moaning loudly and a lot more than before. Half an hour later, he managed to clean the chocolate off her feet.
> “I never knew how good chocolate tasted on your majestic feet Toot.” Barry said.
> “That was incredible.” Toot replied.
> Barry smiled at her and kept on worshipping her majestic feet for many hours until Barry looked out of the window and saw how dark it was getting.
> “I gotta get going now…” Barry said. “Let’s do this again.”
> “Same time tomorrow?” Toot smiled rubbing her feet.
> “Of course!” Barry excitedly said.

sometimes Deviantart fetishes crack me up ! well that's not the worse i've ever read, Sonic fanfictions are far worse than that.

>>79093910
Looking pretty good. I didn't much care for Frozen, but the idea of examining Hans' viewpoint on the events seems nice. His characterization in the movie felt a little odd to me, and you've managed to come up with pretty good justifications for his actions.

I'm a picky reader and I drop a fanfic instantly if I spot issues that annoy me; frequent typing errors, bad paragraph formatting, swearwords that don't fit the tone of the work, etc. You haven't pushed any of those kinds of buttons, your text is readable. I like how you're examining the story from the viewpoint of characters who have this distant, dignified and old-fashioned demeanor; it's different from more generic and down-to-earth POV characters. Also, it's rare for me to read a fanfic involving a work that I don't care about, but so far this fic's keeping me interested enough (currently I'm halfway through the second chapter).

>Sonic fanfictions are far worse than that.
And yet they're still by and large better than Smash fanfiction. Dear god Smash fanfiction is all awful

And write original stories on textnovel. Writing fanfiction makes me feel uncomfortable.
>>
I used to write fanfiction. Got a kick out of the fact that people would read my stories. So I wrote more and more, and just got more and more popular. By about the time I got about a million reads over a few dozen stories I started getting sick of it. I started to lose interest in my own fanbase. I started writing intentionally bad stuff, second person perspective wish fulfillment type stories. They just ate that up all the more.

So I just quit. I'd rather write my own stories, my own characters, and not have any audience, rather than keep doing that.

Hi my name is Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that's how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don't know who she is get da hell out of here!). I'm not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he's a major fucking hottie. I'm a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I'm also a witch, and I go to a magic school called Hogwarts in England where I'm in the seventh year (I'm seventeen). I'm a goth (in case you couldn't tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

"Hey Ebony!" shouted a voice. I looked up. It was…. Draco Malfoy!

"What's up Draco?" I asked.

"Nothing." he said shyly.

But then, I heard my friends call me and I had to go away.

AN: IS it good? PLZ tell me fangz!

Chapter 2.

AN: Fangz 2 bloodytearz666 4 helpin me wif da chapta! BTW preps stop flaming ma story ok!

The next day I woke up in my bedroom. It was snowing and raining again. I opened the door of my coffin and drank some blood from a bottle I had. My coffin was black ebony and inside it was hot pink velvet with black lace on the ends. I got out of my coffin and took of my giant MCR t-shirt which I used for pajamas. Instead, I put on a black leather dress, a pentagram necklace, combat boots and black fishnets on. I put on four pairs of earrings in my pierced ears, and put my hair in a kind of messy bun.

My friend, Willow (AN: Raven dis is u!) woke up then and grinned at me. She flipped her long waist-length raven black hair with pink streaks and opened her forest-green eyes. She put on her Marilyn Manson t-shirt with a black mini, fishnets and pointy high-heeled boots. We put on our makeup (black lipstick white foundation and black eyeliner.)

"OMFG, I saw you talking to Draco Malfoy yesterday!" she said excitedly.

"Yeah? So?" I said, blushing.

"Do you like Draco?" she asked as we went out of the Slytherin common room and into the Great Hall.

"No I so fucking don't!" I shouted.

"Yeah right!" she exclaimed. Just then, Draco walked up to me.

"Hi." he said.

"Hi." I replied flirtily.

"Guess what." he said.

"What?" I asked.

"Well, Good Charlotte are having a concert in Hogsmeade." he told me.

"Oh. My. Fucking. God!" I screamed. I love GC. They are my favorite band, besides MCR.

"Well…. do you want to go with me?" he asked.

I gasped.

It stands to be remembered that there do exist ways to find reasonably-good fanfiction stories. It was only relatively recently that FanFiction.net added the ability to sort stories by number of favorites and reviews in addition to filtering them by word count.

So what's the best fanfic you've ever read?

I don't understand all the hate ff.net gets. It's vastly superior to a03 which is usually filled with rape story's without a plot

I write fanfic, but I don't really read much. Gravity Falls gave me a lot of great Head-canons I wanted to explore, so I made some. I made one about a Prom Night where Mabel tried to help Dipper get a date and have it be successful, and an AU about the last episode. Both were pretty heavy on the feels side.

I really liked doing it, and got some pretty positive feedback on top of it, which I didn't expect. I hadn't written in years so it was a great way of getting back into the game.

I read bad fanfiction for a laugh. Years ago there was one (deleted now) that gave my mates and I a good chuckle when we read it aloud.

It was a Naruto/Sasuke yaoi fic. Standard affair, make outs at home, discussing drama relevant to where the author is in the series at the time of writing, and taking a shower together before sex in a bed. What was notable was that the author kept switching between first and third person; one paragraph it's "Naruto and Sasuke" next it's "me and Sasuke". We joked that it was a threesome with the author. What was the most memorable moment was when Sasuke put a finger to Naruto's lips to hush him, but the author not only misspelled "put" with two u's and double past tense, they also somehow missed the F key so bad they spelled finger with a W, giving us the gem "Sasuke puutted a winger on Naruto's lips." Since we were reading this aloud, we pronounced it as "poot'd a winger" and it remains an injoke to this day.

I'll give most /co/-created fanfiction a quick look over if I'm in the thread, but I like writing it better than reading it. as other anons have said, it keeps me in practice when I'm not writing my own original work and it gives me a good excuse to write some weird shit like a Mad Max flavoured Inside Out story.

it also feels good writefagging for generals. I genuinely feel like I'm giving something back to the other anons in the threads and it makes me happy.

On the night of the concert I put on my black lace-up boots with high heels. Underneath them were ripped red fishnets. Then I put on a black leather minidress with all this corset stuff on the back and front. I put on matching fishnet on my arms. I straightened my hair and made it look all spiky. I felt a little depressed then, so I slit one of my wrists. I read a depressing book while I waited for it to stop bleeding and I listened to some GC. I painted my nails black and put on TONS of black eyeliner. Then I put on some black lipstick. I didn't put on foundation because I was pale anyway. I drank some human blood so I was ready to go to the concert.

I went outside. Draco was waiting there in front of his flying car. He was wearing a Simple Plan t-shirt (they would play at the show too), baggy black skater pants, black nail polish and a little eyeliner (AN: A lot fo kewl boiz wer it ok!).

"Hi Draco!" I said in a depressed voice.

"Hi Ebony." he said back. We walked into his flying black Mercedes-Benz (the license plate said 666) and flew to the place with the concert. On the way we listened excitedly to Good Charlotte and Marilyn Manson. We both smoked cigarettes and drugs. When we got there, we both hopped out of the car. We went to the mosh pit at the front of the stage and jumped up and down as we listened to Good Charlotte.

"You come in cold, you're covered in blood
They're all so happy you've arrived
The doctor cuts your cord, hands you to your mom
She sets you free into this life." sang Joel (I don't own da lyrics 2 dat song).

"Joel is so fucking hot." I said to Draco, pointing to him as he sung, filling the club with his amazing voice.

Suddenly Draco looked sad.

"What's wrong?" I asked as we moshed to the music. Then I caught on.

"Hey, it's ok I don't like him better than YOU!" I said.

"Really?" asked Draco sensitively and he put his arm around me all protective.

The problem with fanfiction is that in the minds of most people fanfiction is just stories about male impregnation or cuckolding or self-inserts or whatever. Basically they're very low quality wank material and most people look down on them, some stories are incredibly complex and well designed and are even better than the source material but those are very rare and stuck between stories of Sonichu and sasgayxnaruto

"No, this has got to stop. You have got to stop. You are acting crazy!" Her words were like daggers in his heart. "Hank, this is ridiculous. It's time to just let it go now! I won't let you leave your wife and ruin your marriage and….I just don't want to see you… any more. It's for the best."

"Please…" He begged, her hands in his tightly.

"I'm sorry. It's just too much for me," She whispered. "I never meant for it to get this serious. I feel… I feel so terrible," He put his hand over his eyes and held his breath as she witnessed him at his weakest point. "Let me get you a tissue…"

Hank put his hand out. "No, I'm fine. I… You're right…Ridiculous…"

"Wait," She grabbed a tissue from the counter and reached up to wipe his face innocently. Hank pulled back and shook his head.

"Please, stop. Don't touch me. I'll die if you touch me…" He said, his hand coming up to shield his face from her soft little fingers. She looked pained and it only managed to pluck at his heart strings more. He had to leave now. He felt claustrophobic and nauseous suddenly.

He practically ran out the door, his hand still wiping away the tears that stubbornly continued to fall from his eyes. Hank felt cheated. For the very first time in his life, he opened up completely to someone and bore his heart and soul to her only to be shot down. She had wounded him like no other. He mind as well not have a heart anymore because she had shattered it into a million pieces.

>>79093968
Part of the problem is that doing comedy in written form is surprisingly kinda tricky - it can certainly be done, but it's not as easy as it is in other mediums.

And that applies double for a cartoon, like Ed Edd & Eddy. EEE draws most of its humor from its surreal animation and imagery, the appealing voice acting and delivery, clever slapstick, and a good sense of timing, all of which just don't work in written form.

One time when I was ten, I read a fanfic that was just the first episode of Naruto the Abridged Series but transcribed in every detail. Ignoring the obvious question of why anyone would do that, what struck me even then was how incredibly unfunny it became (and Naruto Abridged wasn't what you'd call high comedy to begin with, but this made it look even worse). Every detail was the same, but without timing, voice acting, or sight gags, suddenly all the appeal vanished.

Doing good literary comedy is quite possible, but it requires a very different set of tools.

IIRC, Yeardley Smith once said that "We don't know what a Simpsons episode is going to actually look like until it's finished." because I guess the script only gives you a rough outline of what's happening until the animation and voice acting are added in.

Gay romance and crossovers have been the core of fanfic ever since it began, because they're the two things that almost never happen. Crossovers require a lot of wrangling in real life to occur, and gay romance was (and still is, for the most part) intensely rare in most media.

Like, the reason AO3 has so many fanfics of Thor and Loki hooking up isn't because it's in the original. It's because it's not. They want them to hook up, but they never will, and that causes them to set out and try to make their own canon.

Oh, thank you.
I'm really relieved to hear it's readable even for non-fans or non-shippers. With shipping fics it's often a bit challenging to know what the real level is, based on the reader feedback, since (especially with the less popular ships) people tend to praise pretty much anything as long it caters to their ship. But I kind of wanted to tackle it and try to make it tolerably believable, even without the rose-tinted shipping goggles.

I have been thinking I should maybe rewrite the 2nd and 3rd chapters, they're maybe a bit overly wordy. I'll be interested to hear what you think when / if you make it past them, heh. And of course in general, any feedback, also critical, is welcomed. Especially from a picky reader.

>>79099006
Ao3 has more smut because it's allowed there, whereas ff.net has a policy to ban all MA rated content (coarse language, sexual and violent content, adult themes etc). There's a lot anyway because the admins haven't caught them, but they're supposed to be deleted on sight without a warning.

So a lot of writers take all of their smutty, dark or raunchy work to Ao3. There's a lot of good stuff too, and the tagging system allows for nice filtering. And for a while, the general level of fics was higher, though it's been exploding in popularity for the last year so I'm not sure if the difference is there any more.

Yeah, that's why they call it "slash." In old Star Trek fanzines, people would submit fanfics featuring Kirk and Spock's growing romance, and people were annoyed that those fanfics got sorted with stories where Kirk and Spock just hung out. So they created the division of "Kirk & Spock" to describe stories where Kirk and Spock were just buddies, and "Kirk/Spock" to describe stories where Kirk and Spock were butt-buddies. Of course, Kirk/Spock eclipsed Kirk & Spock by a significant margin.

Nah, that was a joke on SBF's part.

It is a known fact that Rebecca Sugar wrote Invader Zim fanfiction, though, and she cites it as an inspiration for several aspects of Gem society - the hierarchy of bigger Gems ruling over smaller ones calls to mind the Tallest, unaired episodes suggest that an Invader's real mind is located in their PAK, similar to how a Gem's real mind is located in its gemstone, and Peridot in general is very strongly Zim-inspired.

I reached the beginning of chapter 5 some time ago but it's late in my timezone. I stopped reading so I can prepare going to sleep and continue tomorrow.

One addition I'd like to add to my previous comment is that I like how you're portraying Hans as a guy who can appear (and even genuinely be) noble and well-meaning, but his inner thoughts show a coldly pragmatic, scheming and manipulative side to him. It feels true to his movie-self. He maintained a pleasant face while secretly making these meticulous plans to turn the events so that he ends up getting what he wants. And I like that Elsa is very aware of what the guy's capable of, and keeps being suspicious of him. There are lots of fanfics where enemies end up having to co-operate, and if they start trusting one another too easily/quickly, it's another issue that can make me quit reading. It's much more fun when there's friction that they have to deal with and things build up slowly. Also, I don't much care for shipping, and I usually only accept canon couples in fanfics. But I can accept other pairings if it's well-written and believable.

Oh and I like the look into Arendelle's politics; showing this balancing act that political leaders have to do with both their own people as well as the leaders of foreign nations. Using stuff like Scandinavian naming conventions or local myths like tomtes is a nice touch too.

The thing is, My Immortal was an increasingly obvious trollfic made to parody bad fanfiction. It wasn't 100% clear that it was at first but as it went on it became more and more obvious with more blatant jokes along those lines.

I don't generally like fanfiction, but I will admit I've read some (an extremely small/rare bit is actually any good) that really does do much more interesting and well executed things with ideas from works than the works themselves. Usually I only get tempted to actually look at stories if I feel like the original really mucked something up or there's a lot of wasted potential. And although most fanfic is utter shit, I have found a tiny few where I'll wish the original had been more like the fanfic.

It's so good, able to do romance and shit while also having political intrigue and uses most of the important AT characters (very rare for stories for this show).

I used to write/read fanfic back many years ago. Then I took writing classes. Then I came to the conclusion about 90% fanfic are badly written spec scripts and you do it for free. While major studios hire writers to basically write fanfiction for their IPs, except they know how to write and format correctly. The other 10% are the fanfic authors that turn their works into their own books ala 50 Shades of Grey.

Confession time-
I've always wanted a Harrry PotterXOuran High School Host Club crossover.
The ideas of Tamaki and Nekozawa with magic, Kyoya manipulating the monetary system, both sets of twins trying to out do each other, Honey and Mori taming the Forbidden Forest, and the sexual confusion and emotional turmoil of Hogwarts students being attracted to Haruhi, all of that just makes me smile.

But alas, my writing skills are shit, and no one else has written it yet.

>Teenage Robot
I wrote my last fanfic just last year. It was OC centric. It took place in a fan community built continuity, one of several.

Hell, I even wrote a history chart for my character so no one would have to read the fics and roleplays that shaped him. Honestly, I can't stomach looking back at them, but I do appreciate them.
I still value my OC, but I don't take it is seriously as I use to. It's just fun to do.

I don't fully understand what drives me to keep it in the back of my mind. I was so young when it started, and still think about the people I met then. I cared about them. I hope they're okay. I look in one whoever still has active accounts from time to time. I loved the OCs they made, and I wanted to inspire them to keep creating.

But they fell out of the fandom. I lost my own love for Teenage Robot almost forcibly, when I sent out into the world to grow the hell up. Yeah I grew up, but I never forgot the community.

In fact, I want to write another fanfic. I already started compiling a list of OCs to use, as well as building the framework of the story and events to occur.

I want to build upon the theme of ideas, good and bad, and how they can make or break whole worlds. It's sort of an allegory for fanfictions as a genre.

However, since I do have responsibilities, and a life to live, it may be a long time before I even get to begin writing it, but it will be done.

Thats the thing, not everyone has the willpower to look thru actual shit to ind the gold and gems.

Ok, so I know nobody cares and it's cringy, but I'm just gonna write it down to get out of my mind

So, you know how in the Avatar all animals are combined? I thought it world be fun if names of the assassins were based on combined animals from Chinese zodiac signs. Also, I kinda wanted to figure out how different from each other you can make a team that is all from fire nation and almost all firebenders

Snakehorse would be a punkish girl who fought exclusively with lightning, because electric personality. The fight would be in a city street at night and eventually she would blow out all street lights and main hero would win through stealth

Roosterdog - sword fighting with firebending wasn't really explored in the show since lesser swords is better for pg rating. So that was his shtic. The same fighting style used by that sword guy from one of the fire islands to make it authentic

I could never do that. A lot of people talk about revising chapters/planning things out/getting beta readers, but I just have a general idea of what to do, and then write it out in chunks, uploading as soon as I pass the 3k word count. To be fair, there are a lot of chunks.

Yeah, the thing is I don't really want to write a funfiction because of the negative stigma and the final product wouldn't really be mine by definition but at the same time its not like I can stop this ideas from coming into my head

Continuing

Pigrat - he was meant to express the industrial nature of fire nation. He would wear a bulky armor and a gas mask similar to washer soldiers wore in atla. Instead of using his rather weak firebending skills he would use an arsenal of smoke and gas based weapons, including a hallucinogenic one that would make him appear more threatening than he really is

Bullram - Combustion bender of course. I liked the curving charges that P'li did and thought what else kind of bullshit can you make up around this idea. So his combustion charge instead of going in a line and hitting a single point would instead create a conus like spread and hit a whole area at once, with less power that usual so he's not too op. And make him tall and angry for the tradition sake

The problem I find with the authors I have known is that they start making fanfics when they had free time. But as their lives went on they had more responsibilities and higher priorities. Now by the end of the day they rather watch a movie, play a game, read a book, or hang out with friends rather than continue their old works.

I'm sorry guys, I know its been years, but when I do have the time I do get a couple paragraphs in every so often. Also, been working under a different name doing original works now, and that has eaten most of my allotted writing time. I still love you all.

Five Weeks At Freddys is probably the best thing I've ever seen, and its a damn shame too cause it seems the author isn't going to continue it. The characters actually had character, and the protagonist had his moments of pure cowardice. SCP is worked into the story but it was handled better than I thought it would be, considering when it was first introduced I nearly dropped the story altogether.

I have three unfinished fanfiction stories and one short fanfiction story still up on FF.net since I can't delete my account and hide my shameful past.

I did recently find an unpublished (though still unfinished) fanfiction story in my /lit/ folder. It was going to be a Bionicle story in which the Toa are infected/possessed by personifications of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Only fanfiction I'd write now would be following Iroh's adventures/hijinks after ATLA ended, where he basically opens his own tea shop, talks to people, and becomes a well-established member of the community, loved by all.

The lesson to be learned? How famous you are has as much to do with how much you impact the people around you as it does your impact on the world at large.
>>
>>79111031
I would have had it play into my shipping fantasies, actually. Gali would have been the unpossessed protagonist going through the story and getting the other Toa out of their mess, dealing with her would-be possessor head-on. I think. This was about ten years ago, so I'm probably wrong somewhere in there.

Anyways, the Toa to have been possessed by Lust would be Pohatu.
>>

Should I go through my drafts and see what the other Toa would be possessed by?
>>
>>79111187
bitch stay away from kopaka
he was the coolest motherfucker
pun very much intended
>>
>>79111216
He was my favorite until I realized Pohatu was a stone cold motherfucker.

Anyways, here's what the other possessions would be:
>Onua and Anger
>Kopaka and Sloth
>Takanuva and Gluttony
>Tahu and Greed
>Lewa and Pride
>Gali and Envy
>Pohatu and Lust

Also, messed up when I said "possessed". I guess I was going with an infection angle, in that Toa would be infected by an event that happened in the prologue that also released the aforementioned personifications of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Man, I must have thought I was a genius when I came up with this story.

I'm trying to worldbuild a DC/Marvel fusionverse, adding in elements of Bond, C&C Generals (the GLA are comic-book tier ridiculous evil), Uber and Asterix.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10362076/1/Less-Than-Zero

Its pretty good, and yeah it stars an OC but you can tell the author really cares about the DC universe, so it gets done well. Plus the OC isn't some badass. He gets his shit kicked into him like all the time. Hes building the character up from the ground up.

It was pretty sad. I was often stressed out and bullied. That world was an escape.

I was in love with Misty, and Star Wars Episode I had just come out in theaters, I played DFII:Jedi Knight over and over, Sonic Adventure, DBZ...My imagination just made a mashed world using elements from each.

>Pokemon
Main overworld.

>Star Wars
I made an altered Jedi mythos.

>Sonic/DBZ
I borrowed super forms, activated using seven shards that made a medallion.

Every time I felt cornered, overwhelmed, or just defeated, my mind would play out a new scenario in that world so I could cope. I daydreamed often, and it hurt my school work.

Being preyed on by Dark Force users was common, due to the bullying I was dealing with. I created a faction called "The Bats", who were literal bat-people who embraced the Dark Side, led by the Jedi King's brother. They eventually made peace.

But I fell to the Dark Side, IRL triggered by a huge fight I had with my father, in which he tore me down due to my general youthful laziness and poor school work, caused by my daydreaming.

My last "arc" was me essentially letting go of that world.

I became a Sith, and destroyed the world, triggering the Sith War. The Jedi train Misty, Ash and his friends performed covert operations, and they uncover the history of the Jedi/Sith conflict.

I was finally freed from the Dark Side's influence when I accepted how weak and alone I really was.

The Dark Side was destroyed, The Force itself removed from that universe, the Jedi disbanded.
The End. Back to reality.

I feel so bitter recalling all of this. How much of my life was wrecked because I couldn't deal with it. How beta it made me. How much I hated myself.

I'm more at peace now, have a great job, and married. Sometimes we need to be kicked around by the world if we are going to ever get our shit together.

fanfiction is good practice when I don't feel like working on my own stuff, and is particularly good for learning how to maintain distinct character voice since you already have examples of how the characters should talk for reference.

I haven't written any for a couple years, but I still read some now and then.

There's a certain Shamelessness in fanfiction that garners towards a really energetic and passionate story. Shinji And The WH40K has legit artistic merit from how pop-culturally dense it manages to be. Even among classics you're hard pressed to find stuff with that much intertextuality, and most of it was written by Joyce or Dante.

Actually, writing out greentext stories for stupid bullshit and lewd crap has given me a invaluable method of planning out my stories.

Greentext focuses on the main things. It's like the foundation. It also helps me pace.

Jesus christ, that was straight up where I spent the first few years of my puberty. It was the first free hentai site my 12yo self found.

I remember there was this one long saga about some OC and his Renamon partner, and the OC is like, the coolest twenty something ever where every room in his house was themed, and he had some ancient digimon anubis inside him that lost all gravitas once it started talking to him.

I also remember one where Gomamon got the twelve talismans from Jackie Chan's Adventures and used them to get laid, filmed it, and gave the videos to Gabumon to fap to.

I also remember one where a bunch of the girls climb inside Angewoman's colossal vagina, have sex, and fall asleep inside her. That author had done a bunch of unbirthing stuff using the flimsy justification that being in the digital world so much made their bodies more elastic somehow.

They even had MSTK3 fics where someone would have characters riffing on fapfics other people had written, getting great gems like Vegeta saying analingus isn't so bad so long as you don't go too deep.

dunno if this fully counts as a fanfic thing, since its derived from slenderman and other creepypasta that have been a fan made thing from the get go, but it still has a very fanfic feel to it. And beneath the tvtropes wank and protag's unashamed BDSM fetishism actually being a plot point at several times, it still depicts one of the post gripping apocalypse scenarios I've ever read. Maybe even moreso since the protag isn't just some John Everyman but a fucked up weirdo.

Mainstream just just isn't weird enough to fully convey 'the old rules are gone, and the new rules are fucking weird'. The only thing I've seen that comes close is The Mist where there was no rhyme or reason what creatures might come out of the mist or where they came from.

If you know any good examples that prove me wrong please fucking tell me because I'm starving here.

I wrote fan fiction years ago on forums that are now long dead so they now only exist in my head where they'll stay forever.

No one will ever know.

Shit, there's a lot. I'm really picky about writing style and characterization, so these are the ones that I feel like capture the characters and their dynamic best.

This one is a pretty good alternate storyline if Steve survived the war and married Peggy and lived out a life with her. It's a trilogy and loops back into TWS and goes on from there.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/3520175?view_adult=true

This one is oddly adorable? I like it because it ties in a lot of history tidbits.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/2741975/chapters/6146123

And if you're brave, there's this one. It's extremely long, is still being written, and has plenty of angst and psychological issues considering these characters would be pretty damaged. It ties pretty much the whole cast into it.

AO3 needs better sorting. If I want to read an Azula fic, I want to read a fic where she's at least one of the main characters instead of her being seen walking by to pick up a bottle of water in the third chapter.

And here's a huge reclist that's sorted by what kind of fic you might be into.
>>
Kind of? A lot of my prose these days is influenced by the super hero genre, but it's not really fan fiction per say.

One is influenced by The Phantom and Egyptian Mythology, another by Warren Murphy's "The Destroyer" series with a hint of Strontium Dog thrown in for added flavor (not really much of a fan of the latter, except for Durham Red, but I do like the concepts)

Good Lord, that is a lot of fics. I wish I had some popular interests. The Thunderbolts don't even have a section in ff.net.

you know, I've come to really appreciate greentext over the last year or so. as a way of highlighting something or getting a point accross in pretty much a component-parts approach, greentext is fucking invaluable. I only wish I wouldn't get REEE'd at for using it on other sites.

That makes a strange abd magnificent kind of sense. If this thread's still up when I get home I'll share my own stupid crossover, see what people think.

Green text is the best form of /co/ fanfiction.

I'd recommend Dauntless as well - same basic idea in that Lelouch goes back to Britannia, but with a different spin on it

I'm allowed to write fanfiction in order to practice literary techniques, right?

>>79122465
Of course, some works that could be categorized as fanfic have even won Pulitzers, for example the stuff listed at

Just do what makes you happy, anon. Who cares what some jerks on the internet think?
>>
I sort of care.

Not that I want to be proud of these shipping fics but I want it to be enjoyable to someone out there.

Any tips in general?
>>
>>79111598
Wow. Just wow. You really went full Walter Mitty huh? I'm sure a whole lot of us had done that too, but that's heavy. I can hardly call it autistic. For you it sounds like a deep defense mechanism.

What kind of shit were you enduring that you had to resort to that? I am genuinely interested.
>>
>>79107883
That's why I like sites where you can filterby complete/in-progess. There's way too many good, never-to-be-finished fics out there.

>>79118332
Hell, you can get ff.net to send you a notice when an author you like posts chapters.
>>
>>79122707
If you want to use fanfiction to actually develop as a writer, compare yourself to published, acclaimed prose, not to other fanfics. Do more than one edit round. Re-read your work a couple of months later and try to spot the flaws and aim to get better in those aspects. Use one-shots as an excercise to emulate a particular writer's style and see if you could adapt bits and parts of it to your own writing voice. Even if you write shipping fics, try to make it interesting - even for people who aren't already sold for the pairing and thirsty for any drivel that has them bump uglies and end "I should kill you" arguments with sudden hatesex from nowhere.

Keep reading (good prose, not other fanfics) and keep writing.

Unless I just haven't worked it out, FF.net's tagging system works better for me to find ships. A lot of AO3 writers overtag, and you'll search for two characters and end up with a fic where they're in the background for 3 lines.
>>
>>79116818
>tfw your ship practically writes itself thanks to some one-sided character information, but nobody writes fanfiction for it, just the one popular pairing that takes up 95% of the fandom

Sounds like Alex Hershey Bar trying to hammer Wendip down our throats when Padip makes a lot more sense.

Dude, you'll never have Lauren. Get over it.

I think my favorite is probably Ashes to Ashes, an Avatar ZukoxJin AU where he never gets exposed or leaves Ba Sing Se.
My guilty pleasure is a whole bunch of Darcy/Loki fics, though

When Birds Come Back, about Silent Hill: Downpour.

The opposite is a great feeling though, when you think they're gone then you get that notification.
>>
>>79123153
Why don't you search for the ships themselves instead of individual characters?
>>
>>79100540
HPMOR is more mastubatory than some actual self-insert fics.

Technically some of the earliest fanfiction was people writing their own Sherlock Holmes cases back in the 1890s.

I'll clarify, the tags on Ao3 work pretty nice for the ships, and (unless I've misunderstood) they even count pairings written in different ways into "ship tags", so there's one master tag for each ship where fics with that pairing get categorised, regardless of if they're written "char1 x char2", "char1/char2", or even "char1 & char2 (fandom)".

There are many ways to browse works that fall under a specific ship.

- One way is just to write "Character 1 / Character 2" in the search field, and when you see a fic, any fic, where that ship is highlighted with grey in the tags, click on the ship tag and it'll take you to that relationship's works listing where you can sort and filter the works however you like.

- Another way is to just go to the "edit your search" page and scroll down in "work search" to "relationships" (under "work tags"), start typing and it'll suggest the established official ship tags.

- Or go to "edit your search" under "tag search", select "relationship" from the dropdown menu, write Character1/Character2 in the search field and hit search.

Personally I think it's breddy gud.

>>79123601
What even with the actual ship tags? Damn.

Well I'm leaving the search directions in the message in case it's useful to someone.Oh crap, that's a shame though.
