    You've ruined enough of my childhood just from describing that horrible story.

        Well I don't really like fan-fiction to begin with, but if people truly do feel compelled to write their own stories, can't they at least stay realistic when it comes to the source?

          I don't get fan-fiction either. If I saw a movie and I thought the ending sucked, going home and re-writing the ending in a way that pleases me doesn't change anything.

          There's been things we all wish we could change about a story, but simply writing it down isn't going to make those things come true.

          I dunno. Not trying to bash the fan-fic writers out there, I know people write about things because they love the characters. But seems like if you're going to spend that much time writing a story, you might as well create original characters and make it an original work.

            Ain't that the truth. If you can devote unofficial college final-length stories to already established characters that you don't hold the rights to, why not just go all out and create your own stuff?

              Nope. But when I was a kid I would always try and come up with original ideas for stories and whatnot. I could never come up with anything good...

                I once made a stupid crossover fanfiction series that featured bomberman, kirby, sonic and characters from pokemon, rurouni kenshin and fushigi yugi.

                its probably still around on some fan website

                oh and the powerpuff girls too.

                  What's wrong with writing because you like to do so or like writing scenarios that was never touched upon in said series? IMO, there's nothing wrong with fanfic writing, unless the person writing it, goes about treating it as if it actually happened. It's a harmless hobby, and it does entertain some.

                    Am I one of the few who writes both fanfiction and original fiction?

                    I like reading and writing fanfiction simply because the character and the plot is already developed and people can already relate to certain things and can easily visualize the characters. It helps a lot.

                    I agree that writing fanfiction is little more than a harmless hobby. And it's really fun as well to put your favorite characters in a new and unique situation.

                      Well there's a difference between a new and unique situation, and your "new and unique" situations...

                        I prefer to think of it as something like "How would X character react in this situation?"
                        Like one I'm working on now has Batman team up with Mr. Incredible and Superman. It's set in the Incredibles universe, so superheroes have been banned for a while, but Batman never retired like everyone else. He's a rogue, that's what he would do. He would do what he thought was right even if it was against the law.

                          I never said there was anything wrong with it. I just said I don't get it.

                          To each his own though. Lots of people don't get the stuff I'm into either.

                            I've never written fan fiction, but I have drawn fan comics of Alexander the Grape and E.T..
                            Both of them are wanted criminals.



                            E.T. eats small children and lays eggs. The E.T. hatchlings start eating people all over town, but one boy who dared to eat toast at night saved the world from their menace. Toast kills E.T., you see. However, E.T. runs away and eludes the police.
                            Alexander the Grape is a murderous beast. He shot a convenience store clerk over a pack of gum and got involved in a shoot out with the police. "I will never surrender!" Alexander yelled. He was arrested shortly after. He managed to break out of prison and contact a girl he had seen at K-Mart ten years before. After an altercation involving a man who didn't know about the Snorks, he was arrested again and put into rehabilitation. He now works for the police with his partner Lemonhead. They are getting one step closer to bringing E.T. to justice.

                                  I concentrate more on writing more original stuff now than I do fanfiction, but even that's on hold due to writer's blocks. There are two stories I'm working on, but, I don't ever plan on putting them online since I would like to publish it someday. One is finished, but still not good enough for my standards since it's taking place in the late 90s. Someone is just telling the story, so the majority of this story is a flashback. I'm not sure if that'd actually interest anyone, though. It's a murder mystery. The other one, I have the plot planned, but, can't get it together. I have my characters set too, but, it's cliche to me, since it's fantasy and involves video games.

                                  I have a lot of story ideas for original works, just can't seem to those ideas down on paper. There are some story ideas with original outlines that I wrote out, and still have, from at least 10 or more years ago.

                                  I'll admit, this aspect makes fanfiction easier to write since the characters are already "established", so to speak. You already have an idea what the characters are like and have an idea as to how a character could possibly act in certain situations.

                                  Yeah, it is. When I used to write on a reg basis, I'd say between 1999 - 2002 is where I seemed to write the most, I had loads of fun. It was cool coming up with goofy scenarios for the characters.

                                  That's pretty much how I see it. It's like that Digi-fic I mentioned earlier that I wrote years ago. If Koushirou would've never had that conversation with his parents, where they made it clear that they didn't see him as poison to their family's bloodline just because he wasn't really their son, how would he have turned out? I just ran with it and had fun writing a fic where he wanted to find out more about his adoption. Looking back now, the story idea wasn't a bad one, but, imo, it was badly written.

                                  My very first fanfiction, before I knew what fanfiction was...way before, I was in Elementary School. I wrote a story about the Gummi Bears. It was very simplistic, though. Not much detail. That type of thing.

                                  I see what you mean. Sorry for making the assumption that you found something wrong with it.

                                    I've never liked fan fiction. But there is one... that I really enjoyed. It's a Dragon Warrior IV fan fiction, and it gives a more detailed origin story for Saro, the villain. It also pretty much covers the entire game, so it's kind of a big spolier.

                                      I feel your pain, SS Jup81. I have a shitload of ideas for original stories, but my issue is with getting them off the ground, so to speak. I completed one story in full, and it was a long short story (about 31,000 words), but it really sucks. Everything else is just a pipe dream because I'm not an experienced writer.

                                      Even among fanfiction, I limit myself to certain genres, particularly romance (read: yaoi) and angst (not emo angst, but non-suicide character death). I just prefer those the most and that is how I often write - romance, angst, or a combination of the two.
