    Classic, shortish fanfiction recommendations?

    Hi folks, I'm responsible for choosing what my friends and I read on our classic fanfiction discussion podcast, Retro Fanfic Retrospective (bit.ly/retrofanfic). I’ve perused a couple of rpg.net fanfic recommendation threads from years past, and the community seems to have a good stock of...

    [Star wars] A little fanfic I just made

    Just a silly small piece of fanfic from me: STAR WARS EPISODE 8 3/4 THE KNOWN WAY http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqj1pq Also just copy-pasted here, but not sure how the formatting will survive. STAR WARS EPISODE 8 3/4 THE KNOWN WAY FADE IN: Starkiller base explosion. A piece of debris...

    FanFiction.Net genre popularities

    As some of you may remember, I've done some on-and-off application of my screen-scraping skills to fanfic. Going through some of my old coding projects, I found a program I wrote a few years back that scrapes data for all categories on FanFiction.Net with 100 fics or more, along with how many...

    A question about fanfic history

    Are any of the stories that inspired Paula Smith to write "A Trekkie's Tale" on the web anywhere? Are any of them even known to still exist? I don't know where you'd go to read archives of early-1970s Star Trek zines.

    Cross-Overs That Would Be Awesome...

    "Good morning, Mr. Reese. Did you sleep well?" "No." "I'm sorry to hear that. Well, you're in fine company. Bear decided to keep me up all night by--" "Harold? What is it?" "I just found out who our new number is, John. And I'm finally at a loss for words." "Who is it?" "The First Lady...Claire...

    Funniest lines in fanfic

    Because I'm bored and why not. :) I'll start off with a random one from Rorschach's "Odd Ideas" collection of Harry Potter omake, which only has about ten billion candidates for this thread.

    The Big List of Recommended Fanfics

    For the better part of a decade now, I have been collecting the fanfiction recommendation made in various venues across the web (mainly the creative sections of SB.com), making list of links with those and I have been left with a mildly titanic thread of recs that I call the Big List, which at...

    [+] Let's Talk About Fanfic

    So. After years of reading fanfic in various universes, and tinkering but never actually doing anything with fanfic projects of my own, I've finally taken the plunge and started publishing on AO3. I'm up to 7 chapters and over 45,000 words so far, and while I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit it's...

    [Fanfiction] Fanfics you can just read over and over

    I tend to reread things, and some of my favorite fanfics are the ones I reread many, many times. I want to know what fanfics are like that for you guys. I'm not looking for the best fanfics, I'm just looking for fanfics you've reread more than once, or that you think you could reread many...

    [Fanfiction] A discussion of ShakespeareHemmingway

    For those who don't know, ShakespeareHemmingway is a fanfiction author. In my opinion, SH might be THE fanfiction author, as his works are unmitigated brilliance. There's a fine line between genius and insanity, and ShakespeareHemmingway rolls down that line on a Harley Davidson while blaring...

    Wanted: Good Star Wars Fanfic

    What it says on the tin. I considered going into detail about what I do or don't like in a story, but I've sometimes enjoyed things I didn't expect to. So I'll keep an open mind and just broadly define "good" as "the prose wouldn't drive their high school english teacher to drink. Much." I...

    Long fanfics are looong.

    To the best of my discernment, I have completed my years-long, on-and-off quest to chronicle all stories on FanFiction.Net with at least 800,000 words. There are 266 of them. Or 264, depending on whether you count certain "stories". I'll count them for the purposes of this post. 130 of them...

    Garfield FanFiction- My God, it's GLORIOUS.

    Due to a recent update on WTF FanFiction, I did some digging and found the works of one ShakespeareHemmingway who has written, among other things, Garfield fanfiction, and dear sweet Moses, they are works of beauty. Garfield fights evil and makes love to many, many women, often aided by Jon...

    Here is a rather well written fanfic crossover of Doctor Who and Firefly, with the 10th Doctor (David Tennant) turning up in a bar frequented by Alliance types whilst wearing his long brown overcoat. In their respective universes, with takes place some time between The Runaway Bride and Smith...

    [Naruto] Recommend me some good fanfic?

    So I'm finding myself with some free time, and a willingness to spend it on Naruto fanfics. Problem is, there's just so many of them @.@ and I don't have a good idea on how to set the good apart from the bad. So I thought you guys could recommend something for me? I guess I'm a pretty...

    [HP & Methods of Rationality] Ramming Up Against One's Own Irrationality

    So there's this fanfic, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, you can find it on TVTropes or fanfiction.net, an extremely clever AU revisioning of the whole series. Basic turning point: Harry's aunt Petunia marries a brainiac scientist instead of Vernon Dursley, and as a result Harry...

    {MLP:FiM} Community Fanfic Thread!

    So, I've been threatening to do this in the Fanfiction is Magic! Thread—and since nobody's objected to it so far, it's time to actually do it. Basically, this thread is here to let RPG.net's resident fanfiction authors put together a My Little Pony fanfic one piece at a time. We'll start with...

    WTF Black Jewels Trilogy [TRIGGER WARNING, spoilers]

    So, a few of us got into a side tangent about Anne Bishop's Black Jewels Trilogy over in the Tropes You're Tired Of thread, and we decided to split off our ranting about this series into its own thread, because, well, it's an odd series. It's been a few years since I've read it, so I went back...
