    Fan fiction is how I first started writing and was one of the things that shaped my reading habits (this was 20+ years ago and the playing field was a lot different back then).

    I stopped writing fan fiction in high school to focus on original stuff, but my love of certain fandoms never really died. So it wasn't really that hard for me to get back into writing it more recently, driven by Doctor Who and Harry Potter and Sherlock--all fandoms that see substantial posting rates.

    So, I'm wondering if anyone here is writing or has written any fan fiction they're particularly proud of. Or if they just know of something that they need to recommend. Would love to hear any stories and experiences.

    I love fanfiction; it was one of the main ways in which I'd practice writing as a young teen. In fact, I have recently written some erotic fanfiction of some of my great friends here at narutoforums dot org, which I am very proud of, and surely brought a great amount of enjoyment to myself and my peers:

    I have been reading mostly Zelda and Mario stuff, but I have always loved a good story about Sherlock or Doctor Who

    Link to my crossover fanfic in my signature. Though I'm going to have to do a complete do over of it, since I found a better starting point for my story. But I'll reupload this chapter at a later date.

    You got anything Zelda or Persona?

    Or Fire Emblem?

    Or Supernatural (none of this brothers fucking brother's stuff).

    I unfortunately don't know Bleach that well, but I might give it a try for the FMA

    Oddly enough, Supernatural is one of the few large fandoms where romance isn't the dominate genre.

    The chapter I have posted is Code Geass and One Piece centric, works to set the stage for a Revolutionary Army and Black Knight team up in Amestris during the Promised Day.

    It kinda blends the Canon of all the series that are going to be tied into the story.

    I have never really read too much fanfic. Other than some that one of my friends wrote that were Bleach related.

    A few months ago, I did start writing about 8 chapters of a Supernatural/Magi/Fate fanfic.

    That sounds like it might get kind of crazy.

    I did a count of my Fan fic word count since 2018 started. I've written 210,000 words apparently.

    It kind of is, but I'm mostly only using one character from Magi, and anything else tied to it is just lore type stuff. Same goes for the Supernatural part of it too. The whole thing is centered more on my oc who I have as the main character, and then various Servants and Masters since the goal of the fanfic is my oc winning the Grail and having her wish to become a mortal human granted (since in my story she's an angel that ends up kind of like Castiel, as a fallen one, basically.)

    Oh wow, that's a lot. xD For just the one, I have 17,000 for the word count. Only ever did one other fanfic which was also a multicrossover.. but trying to do that plus have the plot be a murder mystery was just way too much to deal with. :sweatdrop

    It sounds like you have a lot of balls in the air over there. Supernatural seems to be a really good fandom to write for right now.

    The only crossover I'm working on at the moment is a Zelda/Fire Emblem one (and one between all of the Persona games)

    Yeah, it is a lot. Which is why I dropped the murder mystery story for now and just focus on the other one.. hopefully I can figure out ways to keep it going.
    And I wouldn't doubt it, for Supernatural, there's a lot of content that can be done for it since it's a pretty long series. I've bookmarked quite a bit of fanfic for it but haven't got around to reading any yet.

    Sounds interesting!

    Definitely would like to read the Zelda/Fire Emblem crossover. Which games were you going crossover?
