Thread for those who like to read and write fanfiction. Share drafts, look for beta-readers, ask for writing advice, give recommendations and do all that other cool jazz. Just remember to not bully anyone else no matter how shit their taste might be.
>>13382 >the old EU was already full of marvelous follow ups on the OT I'm aware, I've got a ton of old Bantam era books plus the entire NJO series. >What's your pitch? Well, I haven't the whole thing plotted yet, but my basic idea is to start from the situation Disney started from (clean slate, only the movies and TCW are canon) and try to base the characters a bit on George Lucas's original plot. The plot would be about Kira, a female padawan investigating a series of strange murderers along his master, Ben Solo. Eventually, they would discover a sect of darksiders formed by the old red guards, who are trying to ressurrect Palpatine and rebuild the Sith order. During the fight with the sect, Ben would be defeated and "killed", leading Kira into a revenge-fueled spree around the galaxy to destroy the remnants of the Sith. But Ben is not really dead, he faked it because he has his own agenda. Because of shit that happened in his youth, he has lost faith on the Force, the Jedi and the Republic. Maybe throw a bit of Kreia-posting in the mix for good measure. He has been secretly building up a network of like-minded jedi and adopts the persona of Kylo Ren, starting a travel around the galaxy to learn about the origins of the Jedi, the Sith and the Force, with the goal of ending once and for all the struggle between the light and the dark. This will split the jedi order in two, and start a jedi civil war. Kira then decides to find Luke, who abandoned known space decades ago to concentrate on studying the will of the force, because he's the only one respected enough by everyone to mediate and put an end to the conflict. Luke will help Kira to return from her brush with the dark side and make her a better jedi, and together they reveal that Kylo Ren is actually Ben Solo. In a final gambit to defeat both the Jedi and the Sith, Ben Solo uses his status as Darth Vader's heir to unify all the former imperial warlords and loyalists, claims the imperial throne and launches an attack against the New Republic and the Jedi order. Then there's a big battle, and presumely the good guys win, I guess.
>>13401 thanks bro, appreciate it. maybe I'll pick it up again idk >>13402 it's already better than all of neo-star wars and it's only just a concept. tho isn't >Ben Solo uses his status as Darth Vader's heir to unify all the former imperial warlords and loyalists undercut by Vader's turn at the end of RotJ? plus I always figured the imperial navy & administration all kinda really disliked Vader. fear him without feeling much loyalty
>>13420 >by Vader's turn at the end of RotJ? Well, that depends. Only Sheev, Vader and Luke were there. Based on the ending of RotJ we don't really know if Vader's turn became common knowledge around the galaxy or if the identity of Luke's parents are known outside of his circle of friends. In the old EU if I remember correctly people knew all of it, but in the Disney canon Darth Vader true identity was a secret until a while before TFA. So it depends on how it is written. >I always figured the imperial navy & administration all kinda really disliked Vader Yeah, but given how atomized the imperials are after RotJ, a strong figure with some legitimacy over the throne could become a powerful unifying force for a resurgent Empire. Thrawn was disliked too, before he started winning battles against the New Republic. And so was Daala, to a lesser extent.
>>13754 Try the Terminators: Hunters and Killers series
(206.12 KB 1613x2048 Misato Shinji reverse.jpg)
Does anyone have an AU fic where Misato and Shinji switch positions
>>13373 I think that you could actually try what was mentioned in >>12509 where Rey and Kylo (or if you REALLY hate the sequels Luke and his friends) create a third path, discarding the relics of the fascist Empire and succ-dem Republic in lieu of a third path - socialism (though I suggest that you name it something else because A - world-building & B - To keep idiots out of the reviews)
>>8063 I don't know if this is just me, but for some strange reason when PMing other fanfic authors they tend to have very negative responses despite messages being polite and inoffensive. Does anyone else experience this or what?
>>13810 only ever had positive interactions tbh
>>11901 cupcakes
>>14709 I... what?
>>13373 go for it. I would suggest reading some of the better novels of the new canon Thrawn, Bloodline, Catalyst, as they give a good insight into the political economy of the Empire and the galaxy

(476.39 KB 544x816 Boruto Remade Cover.png)
Hey guys, I'm the guy from >>/anime/2514 who is making a boruto fanfiction, with the intent of "rebuilding" it, so to speak. So, here's the link to my fanfiction (it's in spanish): https://www.wattpad.com/story/238608903-boruto-remade I posted it in Wattpad since I don't really know where to put it, also Wattpad is kinda big so more people will read it and such.
>>15354 I would suggest fanfiction.net as a much better place. The viewership is much higher there and the format is easier to leave comments on.
>>15356 >The viewership is much higher there Is it really? I mean, I'm doing this story in spanish, not in english, so I don't know.
>>15357 Fanfiction.net is the most prolific fanfiction site currently in existance followed by archive of our own. Wattpad is generally the 3rd most common followed by various specialized sites such as Narutofanfiction and HarryPotterfanfiction.
>>15358 Yeah but is it for spanish speakers is what I'm saying. Is there a spanish fanfiction.com that regular people with no access to english can use?
>>15359 Fanfiction.net and archive of our own have spanish functions m8. https://www.archiveofourown.org/tags/Espa%C3%B1ol%20%7C%20Spanish/works
>>11901 Not the worst I've read but certainly a horrifically weird one. https://archiveofourown.org/works/3662220/chapters/8094165 TL;DR: The basilisk takes the idea of "Fuck mudbloods" literally.
>>11932 Speaking of the Giant Squid there is a peculiar but thankfully ungraphic fic where Lily Evans, under Amortentia essentially is impregnated by the giant squid.... it was wierd, but not outright horrifying. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11969154/2/I-Would-Rather
>>12466 LOL so this nigga just made a new update to his account in which he calls himself neutral and independent and that harassment is bad. Like this MoFo unironically threatens to call the police to doxx someone for "harassment" which given post related and his numerous over-reactions over disagreements is hilarious. His supposed disdain of Comicvine and Vsbattles is beyond ironic TBH. Honestly what is wrong with this twit?
>>15489 What continues to baffle me is why does he call himself Fiary Tail Dragon Slayer when EVERYTHING he posts is just Naruto-wank?

>>15716 >>15489 >>12466 Forgot to say but he had a joke-battles wiki page dedicated to his Naruto fagging but it was taken down September 2nd because of new rules, pic related is the screenshot.
What's the most annoying thing to have in a fanfiction? Why? I'll start >OOC main characters Why the fuck would you take a show, and a character that is the main staple of how the show works and change them entirely? If a character is perverted or really happy and make them into an edgy cunt or secretly evil or a supergenius for no reason? Just make your own ripoff series and do that.
(13.81 KB 336x330 1442195412327.png)
>>16164 >What's the most annoying thing to have in a fanfiction? Why? I don't have one specific thing because I get annoyed by quite a lot of factors, but I'll give a few examples for now. >When an author decides that they need to use their authors' notes as a platform for their political beliefs when the story itself has few, if any, political elements. Had this happen once with a Resident Evil SI story and literally in every chapter the guy kept shouting out his conservative, right-libertarian ideology (that was only relevant in the American context to begin with) and in later chapters he just went full on "commies should just die". Its really jarring to read an author telling you to vote for some candidate he likes (or liked if you're reading the story years later like I did), or complain about a policy he doesn't like, especially if you're a non-Burger. >When the author is a native English speaker but puts no effort into getting punctuation or grammar correct Like dude, at least get the punctuation correct when you start a sentence and remember that "i" is always written capitalized when used to address oneself. That already goes a long way. The way people like this write makes me think they never finished their primary education. >When the story starts off with a description of what the protagonist looks like This is jarring as hell and always makes me want to drop a story immediately, even if I like the premise based on the initial plot summary. >When its a self-insert story but the SI just wants to become friends with the main cast so they can experience the main plot but at the same time change as little about it as possible Please, just do something to change things instead of just being an idle observer. I understand its easier for you to write a novelization of the original work instead of doing your own thing within that established world, but I came to read fanfiction and a novelization is precisely not that. >When its a gamer story but the protagonist chooses the elemental mage class yet again because fuck you I want magic There's plenty of classes to choose from in most RPG systems besides the most basic-bitch magic users. Like pick a ranger or a monk for change if you're going with a D&D inspired system. >When its a gamer story and the protagonist gets a chance to make their own avatar but they yet again pick either purple or red eyes and white or black hair because they want to feel speshul If your plan is to blend in to a population that has natural hair and eye colors for the most part, having yourself look like the epitome of a gary stu/mary sue is not helping things and it also breaks immersion when nobody in-world points this out. >When the best way the protagonist (SI or OC) sees they can bring about change in the world they're stuck in is becoming an entrepreneur™ and starting their own business This is just pure petit-bourgoisie ideology, plain and simple. Unless of course you're trying to build dual power by making a worker co-op in preparation for an upcoming revolution, then its based. I hate it when this happens with settings which originally had a clear political undertone and are ripe for political intrigue, but which the author never really does anything interesting with. Even capeshit staples like DC universe's Gotham are ripe breeding ground for fermenting radical political change considering how absolutely filled with crime and poverty the place is, but I've yet to see one story that really plays with this aspect beyond the protagonist acknowledging how shitty the place is for the average person to live in and how Batman and his cohorts aren't really helping the situation.
>>16196 >platform for their political beliefs I can honestly say I've never seen this before.. but I agree it would likely be annoying AF >he way people like this write makes me think they never finished their primary education A lot of fanfic writers are young teens who don't spell-check or proof-read so you're not too far off the mark. >SI just wants to become friends with the main cast so they can experience the main plot I don't mind those stories personally however I recognize that intrinsically the presence of an SI to follow a story would lead to changes in the plot. >becoming an entrepreneur™ and starting their own business Holy fuck this, I fucking hate this, can't believe I forgot about this kind of shit.

>>16203 >I can honestly say I've never seen this before.. but I agree it would likely be annoying AF It was a one off thing really, but it has stuck pretty vividly in my mind because I read pretty far into the story itself because it tickled my gun autism itch but eventually his A/N bullshit just got too cringy for me and I ended up dropping the whole thing. >A lot of fanfic writers are young teens who don't spell-check or proof-read so you're not too far off the mark. I'd get it if that was the case but the ones I'm talking about were (according to their profiles) grown-ass adults. >I don't mind those stories personally however I recognize that intrinsically the presence of an SI to follow a story would lead to changes in the plot. The problem is that not every fanfic author always recognizes the fact that having even one extra person participating in an event has the potential to cause major change in the outcome of said event, let alone a person with meta-knowledge regarding the world and future events.
>>16214 >grown ass adults LOL really? That's prtty sad TBH >let alone a person with meta-knowledge regarding the world and future events There is actually a really good fanfic that does this really well; A story about a girl who drops into Harry Potter world and with her knowledge of the Riddle Diary derails everything. It's actually really well written IMO. https://archiveofourown.org/works/24196849/chapters/58283563
>>8063 What are the most kino things of a fanfic?
>>16259 When written by good authors they can expand the verse or rewrite a story even better than the original media.
Is there any commie fanfiction? By this I mean a fic where the protagonist or any actor in it is involved in explicit revolutionary shit.
>>16344 Let me introduce you to the revelry of Communist Harry Potter. It is the most hilarious shit ever where he literally goes around calling out all the bourg shit and calling for Gulags and Guillotines https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9655837/1/Harry-Potter-Becomes-A-Communist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcHdgBqgASQ

>>16358 Having read past the first two chapters, this fic seems like its just one big shitpost on the author's part down to the A/N. Then again it IS classified as a parody. Like, everyone in the fic is obviously a caricature, including Harry himself.
>>16358 What about the video sounds russian? Just because it's on a piano and in minor key?
Is it okay to post just general writing shit in here? I've been sort of doing poetry/musings and I want someone to run them by but I got nobody for that.
>>16369 Just do it
>>16371 alright here goes nothing. "How fucked up is it, the notion of dying like a dog? The dog, man’s best friend, part of the family, the lovable scamp. Stripped of dignity, lacking in honor. A cold, humiliating end. But why? Is the subservient relationship we’ve formed miserable? When did the arrangement of man and canine stop being mutually beneficial? Are dogs commodity or friends? Is the concept of friendship a commodity? Maybe we’ve been taught that living for the pack is miserable. Maybe it’s the cult of individuality. I detest this, I find it abjectly terrifying. For when you shouted, I knew we were brothers. You shook my hand, even if you were lacking in digits. We shared bread and loving glances. You could sense when I was sad, and I’d like to believe I could tell when you were upset too. When you left, I didn’t know what to say. Maybe that silence was the deprivation of your dignity. I won’t let that memory of you go cold. I refuse this premise!! I lived for your happiness, you and I, we were family! You and I, any man or beast on this cold blue planet. We all deserve dignity. I may die a dog’s death, but I reject the notion of my life having more value than yours. We all have to live for each other, you taught me that without uttering a single word. I can’t think of anything more noble than living to love." I'm very, very rusty. Tell me what parts of it read poorly. The whole idea is that it's kind of fucked up that society sees dog ownership as something of a commodity, thereby making their existence lesser or whatever. It's just sad to think about because I'm sure the animals themselves don't think the same. It creates this messy notion of hierarchy in what theoretically should be a mutual existence.
Recently read link related: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12944357/1/Multiverse-Tournament It's not the best fic but its decently written for something this vast. Unfortunately I finished reading it and google gives me shitty wattpad results that are unreadable. Does anyone have/know some multi-versal anime tournament fanfics worth reading? I just want to read characters I know from different series interact in a fight outside of lengthy crossworld fics.

Reposting from /anime/ Not a big fan of these shows (mecha-musume) or their fanfictions (mostly out of how ridiculous they are), however I do enjoy some of it casually. However one fanfiction of Kantai Collection that I enjoyed very much was a rather unique fanfic called Kancolle: Exodus Initiative, a sadly incomplete fanfiction where the main character is a Soviet battlecruiser of experimental nature, The Stalingrad, the first ship of the Stalingrad Class Project 82 battlecruisers*. The Abyssals take over most of the world and rule in collaboration with the countries of the world, but there are groups of shipgirls and people who are fighting back in a revek struggle). The fic begins in a bit of a confusing way (intentionally mirroring the chaos of the situation) but eventually clarifies a bit more. One of the interesting aspects is how they address Shipgirls. They physically embody their ships, so removing and replacing ribs and taping together organs or losing arms is treated as normal for them. Another unique part that reflects a bit of the Kancolle movie, is that they retain the memories of war that their soldier's and crew fought in. A unique aspect of the main character is that, the Soviet Navy, whose forces were often stuck fighting on land, since the Germans did not seek to engage in direct naval confrontation and tried to lock them in port with mines and nets, thus Stalingrad (the shipgirl) retains vivid and horrendous memories of the war. Her soviet perspective and ideology is also an influence and interesting aspect. (SPOILERS) Her mannerisms and ideology are initially treated with jocular quality, but it becomes a bit of a plot point in the last chapters. Part of this is seen with her hidden split personality 'Koba', who enunciates her position and is more dangerously and direct (SPOILERS). I think this is so appealing to me because my Great-grandfather fought in the war and my own appreciation of the USSR. TL;DR: I liked the commie ship and the way it was done Original fic: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11720694/13/Kancolle-Exodus-Initiative Russian Translation: https://ficbook.net/readfic/9269278/24003647#part_content *These ships are insane compared to any other battlecruiser and their internal systems honestly would be a good study for future warships and the range on the experimental guns was impressive. - http://www.e-reading.club/chapter.php/1002749/11/superlinkory-stalina-sovetskiy-soyuz-kronshtadt-stalingrad.html - http://archive.is/VQJd8
I wrote a book of poetry amazon.com/dp/B08J2R4LD8
>>16488 Probably goes in the poetry thread. but not bad. At least you're doing something
>>16492 Oops sorry I thought this was a different thread. And thank you! I'm working on a second book now and am probably gonna call it quits after 3 poem books total
There is a fanfic author called Yojimbra who used to do a lot of fairly well written Naruto fanfics (often gender bender ones) but then stopped and switched to BNHA. While their profile says "a vacation" from Naruto, the author is in fact never intending to write that fiction again and is quite hostile to the fandom in general suddenly. I have no idea why though. Does anyone know what happened? https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1324405/
