Kev is a huge nerd, and doesn't care that I write slash because he's not homophobic, he's just not a massive Tolkien nerd. I've only found them online! :)

@Ziggy - I think people like Kev and my mum get fanfic, they're just not that interested, and I tend to prefer to talk fannish things to fannish people.

Alquien, when we move to the country you should come and live with us. Then you could just be yourself :)

I don't tell people I write because it's my refuge and I don't want to talk about it to people who don't get fanfic. I think people would be ...surprised if they knew what I wrote!!

Sadly, where I live is neither fic or fan-friendly. Long story, that. *sigh*

Well, I think everyone knows I write fic, but aren't interest in what I do because it doesn't make money.

Yes, I agree. But it's made me very wary and few people irl know of my interest in fic. Which is partly why I repost so many recipes and cat pic over at f-b. ;)

Ugh. Those idiots. They're quite entitled to their viewpoint as long as they keep their long noses out of other people's business (and fic) No-one asked for their opinion.

writers in Tolkien through FFN, so there is that. But I never posted there because of the "righteous" ones. (That group was quite good at cyberstalking too; again, FFN did nothing.)

It is the mark of a good fairy-story, of the higher or more complete kind, that however wild its events, however fantastic or terrible the adventures, it can give to child or man that hears it, when the “turn” comes, a catch of the breath, a beat and lifting of the heart, near to (or indeed accompanied by) tears, as keen as that given by any form of literary art, and having a peculiar quality ... In such stories when the sudden “turn” comes we get a piercing glimpse of joy, and heart's desire, that for a moment passes outside the frame, rends indeed the very web of story, and lets a gleam come through.

FanFiction Writers Appreciation Day

Whether you are just a reader or a writer as well, on August 21st:

  • Go on AO3, FF.net, Wattpad or any other fanfiction website, even Tumblr, and leave comments on your favorite fics. It doesn’t matter if you’ve already reviewed them, just do it again. It doesn’t even have to be a long comment, just show your appreciation. Tell the writers how much you love their fics. Let them know what they mean to you.
  • Since you’re there, give kudos, favorite their fics, vote, like them.
  • Send your favorite writers an encouraging message. Tell them how much you love their work. Tell them which of their fics is your favorite and why. Tell them why they’re important to you.
  • Make a post recommending some of your favorite fics to your followers so that they have a chance to read them as well and share them with others. Spread the word.

Make this a very special day for your favorite writers, but remember to nurture them often. They spend countless hours working on plots, developing characters and creating worlds that wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for them. And they do it for free, of their own accord and frequently during their free time. It takes hard work and commitment and love for what they’re doing. And they do it for them just as much as they do it for you, so appreciate it.

They give you infinite ways in which your favorite characters find love, go on adventures and get to experience different lives, new challenges. They give you unimaginable versions of your favorite stories that you’ll just never get to see in the official storyline. They give you the opportunity to fall in love with your favorite characters all over again. Be grateful for that and don’t be afraid to express it.

Show your favorite writers how much you appreciate them and you might just make their day. And a writer who knows that their work is loved is a happy writer. Never forget that. Always share your love :)

New Archive

As many of you know, the old archive had some problems, and was down for a time. Esteliel therefore moved everything, by hand, to a new host (this one) for which we are all extremely grateful. I assume the old site will remain up until its funding runs out, but it cannot be updated.

All Fanfiction.net Stories Have Been Stolen

Dear fanfiction writers, Please be aware that there are fake websites which have mirrored literally ALL FANFICS from Fanfiction.net. As far as I can tell, they are near-perfect mirrors, updating in real-time to FFN
