Big Fan Fiction Fan? Man, thats a tongue twiser. Fan Fiction is a very fascinating form of writing. It tends to bring together some of the strangest creations I've seen in the Electronic Lit world!
Not all Fan Fiction is good. But when you just can't get enough of your favorite TV Show, Movie or Comic books, Fan Fiction makes no bones about taking up the slack.
Fan Fiction can be a taudry world. Unlike the series in which they are moddled after, many writers feel that the Fan Fiction should contain sexual content or romance. Its common for Fans of a show to want the stars to get together. Give that desire to a Fan Fiction writer, and you've got a love story between Mulder and Scully.
However, the Fan Fiction market isn't dominited with the lovey stuff. You can get some Great stories of every kind out there. You can literally get lost in a world of Fan Written Fiction.
Fan Fiction is often scoffed at by people who consider themselves "Real Writers". I have to point out that notion as obsurd. All writers write Fan Fiction one time or another. Even if you get paid to write for X-Files, or X-Men, your still
writing someone elses characters. Fan Fiction is so called because you do not get paid to do it.
At any rate, here are a few of my favorite Fan Fiction links to introduce you to the world of Fan Fiction.
