Does anyone here write fanfiction or draw fanart?
« on: April 09, 2015, 09:20:51 AM »
I write fanfiction myself. I tend to go with anime and manga, though. Mostly Ah! My Goddess and Love Hina.

 Here is a link to my FFN account.

I do fan-art on occasion, but mostly it's requested by other people.

I never could get myself to write fan-fiction...I don't know if it's the constraints of a pre-existing canon or the idea that I'm using characters that aren't mine, meaning the writing will never really belong to me.

(Having said that--"50 Shades of Gray" apparently started as a Twilight fanfic, so my back-half reasoning is now suspect. I could make a jab at that shitty series or that shitty book, but there's actually a positive story in all of it: the reality is that ANYTHING--at this point--has a chance at being published.)

I tend to refer to writing Fanfiction as 'playing in someone else's sandbox' at times. Both positively and negatively.

Ves, perhaps it's a mix of the two possibility you said that prevents you from writing fanfiction?
