Welcome to the World of Fanfiction!

Hello everyone and thank you for taking time out of your busy day to join in on a widespread discussion that never seems to be satisfied—the social stigma of fanfiction. What is fanfiction you ask? Fanfiction is fan written work based off of original characters from tv series, bands, anime/cartoons, novels, etc.; mainly published on the interweb (online jargon for internet) on websites such as Wattpad, Fanfiction.net and LiveJournal. On this site, you will find multiple posts and sources that will give you a better idea of what to expect and why this subject is so important in the creative writing community. Fanfiction writers are constantly demeaned for writing stories with non-original characters despite amazing plot lines. Disclosure, I’m not claiming every fanfiction writer is 100% skilled, good at characterization and/or plot. I’m here to bring these writers to the forefront and give them the recognition they deserve, regardless of how society depicts them. In spite of all the defamation, they’re still exactly what they endeavor to be—authors.
