  • That depends on what type of fanfiction it is.

    If the story has any yaoi, yuri, and/or incest, [extreme] blood, gore, and other disturbing images, text talk (unless the character is sending/receiving a text), misspelling characters' names/places/things, then no.  Do not love.

    But otherwise I love it, which is why I have an account over at fanfiction.

    I used to write a lot of stories for Yu-Gi-Oh!, and still do when I can, but not long ago I've begun to branch out.  Now I find myself writing Batman (the Animated Series & Arkham Asylum/Arkham City)Heavy RainL.A. Noire, Uncharted stories; I also enjoy writing crossovers [especially Coming Undone, my Batman: Arkham City & Joker/Clover/Heart no Kuni no Alice crossover story].  Sometimes I write stories with crack pairings, too.

    And when it comes to reading a fanfic!story?  That's an easy answer: it's just as fun.

    On another note: it's fun reading a story with a crack pairing, especially when the author is able to make it work and appear realistic [which is something I try to do when writing a story that involves a crack pairing].

    And yes, long live the pairing Sheldon/Penny 4ever! 8D
  • I'm somewhat new to fanfiction, been reading it for about a year or so now. I've always liked reading so this is just an extension in that I am reading about characters on shows that I watch. What I don't like is having to wade through the 90% of the shit stories out there to find the few nuggets of gold. It seems to me that a lot of 'authors' don't take any kind of pride in their work, either by not doing any research or checking spelling, grammar or plot - for the love of all that is holy at least get someone else to give your offering a read through so as catch any silly/idiotic mistakes. Something else that I've noticed when reading slash (yep, I'm one of them) is that one character for some inexplicable reason is girly, why?! Anyway, I could rant on and on about this and I don't want to bore you any further. So, in summary, yes, I like fanfiction but not the bullshit offerings clogging up the internet and trust me, there's a lot of it.

  • You know me... and if you don't, the answer is yes. I love it and I write it. I started off in CSI fiction and then branched out. Right now I'm still most interested in CSI, Charmed, Harry Potter, and then (on a more controversial level, but I don't care what you might think, it is my business) the Beatles. My Beatles fan fic has amassed over 500 pages in Word and 215K words over a period of going on a year and it is not even done yet. I also have a completed CSI fic that I need to one day get around to putting up for all to read. One day when I'm not so lazy... hehe.

  • Silly question ... the answer is love. Though it depends what the fanfic is about, some things should just not be fanficed like the bible. Fanfic has a lot of good writers and of course some who need to work on it *raises hand* as long as it does not become an excessive obssession for reader or writer and it's disclaimed I don't see the problem.

  • I was a BIG fanfic writer/reader from the last three months of 2003 to about September of 2010, so about seven years. I'm not so much into it now. I write little stories that I randomly write when I feel like it (of couse), and I'm writing one that's kind of a sequel to a kid's movie my brother and I own. I'm not really sure why I'm not into it anymore. I just kind of fazed out of it.

  • I love the great talent who write extremely well and proof-read their stories. I also love the genuine support and friendship found in some fandoms. I hate most of the garbage that makes up about 85% of fan fiction and the never ended drama that happens in certain fandoms.
  • I love it. Duh. I think I started writing it in 1997. That's 13 years, right? I've pretty much written fanfic in every show I've become obsessed with. Now I've added RPF to that. Clearly, I've gone over the edge. ;) I like to read it as well. I love it when an author who I read reads one of my fics and enjoys it. That's a wonderful compliment.
