Fanfiction: The Facts

Have you watched a new show or read a new book recently? Maybe you find yourself obsessed with a certain comic book or superhero? Well, my little wizards, there’s no looking back now that I’m throwing you into the world of fanfiction.

Fanfiction, please stand by if you’re not one for definitions, is basically a piece of fiction where someone takes either the story or characters (or both) of a certain piece of work, whether it be a novel, tv show, movie, etc, and create their own story based on it. It’s a way of letting the awesomeness of your favorite things go on even after they’re over. Its also¬†a fan’s way of saving their favorite characters, fixing thing’s they don’t like in the plot, and pairing up characters that have nothing in common, were never supposed to be together, and have zero chemistry.

Now, you may have one of two questions for me: “Where can I find this amazing thing you call fanfiction?” or “Can I write my own?”. I’ll answer both, my lovely wizards.

You can find fanfiction at one of my favorite websites : It has millions of stories from all sorts of fandoms, depending on what you’d like. Rumor has it that they even have bible fanfiction. Not my thing, but if you’re in to that, go for it. If you’d like to follow stories for updates or leave reviews for the writers to read, you can take a couple minutes and make an account at the website. Lot’s of people I know have them.

Next question for you lovely people is: How can I create this wonderful work of writing? Well, it’s fairly simple actually. Just sit on down at your computer or with a pen and paper and let your imagination flow. It’s like writing any other fiction story, but with other people’s characters and story. If you want to share it with the world, you can put it on for people to read. It’s an easy to use, popular, free website. And it’s just waiting for your imagination.

So! Have fun with this little bit of informaton, my little wizards. I’ll see you soon.
