Fan Fiction

What are your thoughts on fan fiction?

I know that it’s a crazy big deal on the interwebs and I have always loved the idea of it but I can hardly keep up with reading as it is, let alone open myself up to more options for sinking into fantasy fiction!

If you’re unaware of the term and world of fan fiction let me break it down for you! It’s the term used for fans of a particular existing canon (think harry potter, star wars, doctor who) who write their own versions and spin offs of the shows, films and books they like.

Honestly, I have a million fan fiction universes inside my head at all times. When I watch a film, TV show or read a book my mind instantly thinks of spin offs for each of the characters, often inserting myself into various adventures just as a way of entertaining myself when I’m doing mundane things. I’ve done this for as long as I can remember but I’ve never written any of them down. Probably because when I starting thinking these things up fan fiction didn’t exist or at least not in the way it does now!

Of course, we all know where this is leading. I want to know what your favourites are, if you have any… and I wanted to slip in that I am actually writing something right now that I’m going to release as a free download… somehow. I haven’t ironed out the kinks yet but it’s a fun side project (like I need another one) that is bringing me much joy!

So tell me your faves and link them if you wouldn’t mind. I’m going to try to dedicate some time to reading some next month!!
