I was curious how everyone here at this forum feels about fan fiction? Do you read it? Do you write it? Do you hate it and think it's wrong? Personally, I enjoy writing it. What about you?

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the "Inspired" thread. *shrug*

Some of it can be funny...but people get TOO um..."involved" with characters and it does tend to get a little creepy.

I've seen some that go a tad bit too far lol.

I found this definition for you:
fan fiction: A piece of literature written by a fan of a tv show, movie, series, anime, artist, musician, etc centered around the same or some of the same characters and possibly a similar plot. Fan fictions can contain characters acting in a manner that they would never act like, dating people they would never date (including people not of their gender preference), getting with people that they would never get with, and so on.

hope that helps! :)

^^^ I'd like to add that it usually also contains death, illness, terrible accidents, rape, any other bad thing that can happen to someone, ect... And it seems to usually happen to a female character and there's always a man who saves her. :P

I've come across some of the more disturbing ones that do cross the line and go a little bit too far but it's like finding a needle in a haystack. For every 50 bad stories you come across, you'll find that one that just gets you hooked because it's written THAT well.

In my opinion, of course. ;)

that's true, many of them are quite dark and full of damsels in distress :P

when I first read this thread that is kind of what I thought they were about...never imagined that the storylines would include any of the things Becky stated !

Um...oops. I just posted one here..this afternoon. Now I'm reading this and know how everyone feels. ::)

I don't wanna delete it, though. I spent so much time on it!

Fan Fictions were really popular on the AAR boards, but then they were banned because I think they were confusing people. ;D

I will still go check it out and read what you've come up with.

What is AAR?

Aruna just because a lot of people here are not hip on Fanfic, doesn't mean you can't be. ;)

And I don't think that what you typed up in the Music sections really even qualifies as fan fiction. You were just saying songs that relate to your life. No reason to delete that....that's what the thread is about. :P

Aruna - Where did you post the story? If it's on the forum, I can't find it. :(
