I have been a huge fan of several book series conducive to fan fiction, and read a little but I never liked it. Nobody gets the style right, usually people screw up characters, and I worship the author's intent with regards to plot, so it just frustrated me. But sometimes I'd read it for a fix in between books.

However I totally want to rip off the world/mechanism from The Time Traveller's Wife. Maybe write a sequel as the daughter. But I like the author a lot, maybe he'll do it himself.

I was curious about the fanfic here and was unsurprised to see what kind of quality it was. Granted, I don't have a lot of exposure to many other kinds of fanfic, but it seems to me that there was a lot of really good quality X-Files stuff. Just really well-written.

It's easy to look at stuff here (for lack of another example) and be appalled at the crappy writing.

But I don't care - if you're having fun writing it, good for you. Even if you're using other people's characters, maybe it's the first writing that person is doing, and it spurs them to try some non-fanfic writing.

I can't knock 'em for it.

But I do wish some of them would have someone read over their stuff before posting - spell check, people! Come on!

Nothing unusual yet. I'm up to Watchtower now, and the only snippets are Exodus and Not Fade Away. It's a short Not Fade Away too, just the first line of the usual snippet.

Has there been anything good on this site for fan fic?

I've never done it. I'm much better with screenplays than I am with novel-style writing, actually.

OK folks, we're approaching a new thread. My focus is a little too distracted so I won't make it, but I want to suggest Wittenoom, a town poisoned by blue asbestos mining in Western Australia and the subject of the Midnight Oil song Blue Sky Mining.

I actually read one fanfic here ... can't remember the name of it ... that I thought was really well-done.

It was a fantasy sort of story, so you have to completely set aside your suspension of disbelief, but I thought it was really well done. It did a good job of completely sucking me into the story, which has not happened with anything else I've glanced at here.
