An Ode to Fanfiction

I first started really writing when I was probably about thirteen or fourteen, and it was fanfiction for the Legend of Zelda video game series. My first story was horrendous.

My second story wasn’t too bad and, while I have definitely have improved with my writing skills since then, it was well-received by those that cared to review and tell me they enjoyed it. It was a long story, one that a pantser like me probably shouldn’t have embarked on without a plan regarding the length, and it was inevitably dropped when life obligations got in the way of fanfiction writing.

Still, writing the fanfiction was fun, and I even dabble in it nowadays by handwriting in fun notebooks. I also read fanfiction whenever I find myself dissatisfied with the idea that the book or game I had just completed is over.

Fanfiction is amazing to me. Here are novel-length works printed online for free by some very talented writers. With fanfiction, bad scenes can be fixed, characters be saved (Fred Weasley, anyone?), a setting can be explored and expanded with a mere set of 26 letters all rearranged in various ways. Not only can these stories, these expanded works for some favorite franchises and series, be fascinating, but the capacity of a writer’s imagination just blows me away.

Here are people that love a story so much that they are compelled to share what else might have happened after the back cover was closed, what could have happened had the villain defeated the hero or if the hero got lost or if the sidekick had been the star of the show or if this side character had joined the party–

The possibilities are endless when it comes to stories, and fanfiction writers are brilliant for sharing.

  • who’s the one that spends the most money while shopping
  • who cries at sappy movies
  • who gets forced to watch the sappy movies
  • who made the first move
  • who calls the other by lovey pet names
  • who’s the better singer and who’s the better dancer
  • who gets overexcited at their favorite or new things
  • who is more protective
  • who likes to follow astrology and who thinks it’s garbage
  • who stays up to wait for the other to get home
  • who tries to stay up for the other but ends up falling asleep on the couch
