What are your thoughts on fanfiction?

If some work fires up my imagination enough then I'll try to burn it off through some fanfiction like Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Trigger and Invader Zim. I don't mind fanfiction even though a decent amount is dreck.

But the correct answer is the top one since I have written some fan-fiction as well....on pencil and paper so it could never be put on the Internet. And it's a good thing too since it was horrible.

I really enjoy reading fanfiction and I have written a few stories myself (which in hindsight weren't very well written, though there were several other fanfics that were written even WORSE then mine, they had grade-school level grammar and were almost unredable, sure I might've some grammatical error at first but I eventually went back and fixed them)though of course there are some awful ones which are either ineligible, or incredibly disturbing just for the sake of being disturbing.

A plan is forming:

We could do a new thread, called the Reelviews Fanfiction Challenge. I have no idea how it would come together, but this would involve us each giving our best shot at a short bit of fanfiction. Possibly in a contest of some sort. Hell, I don't know, it's already 1:34 in the afternoon and I still haven't had a coffee.

Meh. My answer doesn't really warrant a response, but here I am anyway. I've never read, or even looked at, any sort of fanfiction. I'm sure there's some good stuff out there, but my completely uninformed gut instinct tells me the majority of it is shit. I'm not sure it's worth sifting through the garbage. Plus, apparently a lot of it is perverted. Actually, that's something that might interest me.

Reminds me of two things:

1. Sturgeon's Revelation, which states that "90% of everything is crud."

2. Rule 34, which states that if something exists, then somebody has made porn about it.

Both of these, I discovered via TV Tropes. I will not link to the relevant articles, because I don't need to lose another four hours of my life to that horrible black hole of a website.

I know what you mean, TVtropes can really suck you in without you even realizing it, it's still a nice sit though, provided you learn NOT to get sucked in for too long.

As I wrote before: I'm all for creative writing. Fan fiction or fanfiction or fanfic is just that. So long as I don't, and won't ever, have to read it I'm all for people writing it.

People can write what they want; I don't care. But you won't catch me reading fanfiction.
