    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...

    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...

    [Fanfiction] Where did 'Soulmarks' come from?

    OK, so. I'm a fan of a particular fanfic. So are other people, to the point they make a dedicated subforum to discuss it and make little mini-fics. I'm late to this particular party, but I have fun reading all the serious and mildly cracky snippets. And then this idea/prompt on 'Soulmarks' comes...

    Fandom is Broken

    So this article has started doing the rounds. I think it's quite insightful, was wondering what the Collective thought of it. Segment:

    Quotes From Fanfiction

    This is a thread where you pull what you think is a good quote from a fanfic. This one is from a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fic by Dogbertcarroll. "The demon grinned evilly. He was a natural at it and it showed."

    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...

    Fanfictions You Want to Read But Know Will Never Be Written

    For me - Richard Sharpe acting as a military observer during the Arkansas War of 1824. It could be very cool, but it's something I'd never write - the research alone frightens the hell out of me.

    Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is Concluding

    Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is... controversial in some places, but personally, I love the crap out of it. It's been going on for years. It's hella long. And it's scheduled to update once per day for the next ten days for its final arc. The first part went up a few hours ago...

    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...

    [ARTICLE] On The Fetishisation Of Gay Men By Women In The Slash Community

    LINK Now, I don't think that slash fic is in and of itself a problem, but it does seem like it's a vehicle for people to inflict unhealthy obsessions on others. Since apparently it can bleed into the lives of actors and content creators for not conforming to the fans' various headcanons. Or...

    Fanfiction crossovers that should be eye-bleedingly bad but are really good.

    You nkow the ones, where you read the title and the category ahnd blink while the nope.gif runs in your inner eye. Then you decide to try it to see how bad it is...and it's actually pretty good! I'll start with the Inquisitor Carow series, a crossover where harry gets sent into the future and...

    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...

    Worm Fanfics Mini-Reviews by Kinni

    So, I'm not sure how many people will like this, but since I've been reading so many Worm fanfics, I decided I could do some Mini-Reviews in order to help people find fics they would like, and also generate some extra discussion about the favorite fanfics of the people of this forum. Let's get...

    [Fanfiction] Link stuff you've written

    From the fanfic-oriented threads we've had lately, it's obvious that quite a few RPG.net users write/have written fanfiction. Reading some more fics by people around here would be cool, but in about 20 pages of search results, the only places I could find for posters to share their own stuff...

    Unfinished fanfiction that drives you bonkers

    You know the thing-- a great series on FF.net. Good characters, smart writing, just what you want... you get to the last chapter and it's not finished. the author says he/she will get too it just as soon as classes are over. You smile. then you look at the last update date. 2/03/2006. 2006...

    [Fanfic] Recommended Fanfiction

    I've seen other fanfic focused threads in this subforum, so I trust that there won't be any issues in regard to this. This thread should be used for the posting of fanfic recommendations, hopefully with each post containing at least one recommendation. Links would be nice when possible and so...
