Have you ever heard of this? Apparently, people write additional stories to go with their favorite TV shows. They are posted online. There is tons of this stuff!

I guess these TV writer wannabees select a show they are in love with and they write stories using the characters from the show. OK, I spent some time checking this out. There are some decent writers, some really scary writers, and some writers who are trying to write in English even though it isn't their first language...hard to read.

From what I saw, nobody wrote the characters like they are in the show. Which is weird. Because I think that liking the character is what made them write a story about him in the first place.

No kidding, google your fav show like: House fan fiction.... LOST fan fiction...Castle fan fiction.

It is hilarous and weird. Two questions:
1. Have you ever heard of this?
2. Have you written any?

Interesting.. And great blog btw.. I just checked the bones fan fiction and found that leave alone the characters, some of the stories don't follow the plot even..

I've heard of it and I've never read one that was actually interesting. :) So I stumbled upon this blog trying to find followers for mine and I have to say I like your wording "Girl world - where life is one big funny mess." So i stopped to read. Good job! :) Im a first time author trying to find followers! If you get a chance please check out my blog:
Thanks! And keep up the good work! :)

heard of it yes, written any no. There's some very scary Harry Potter fan fiction where people develop the relationships between the characters, if you get what I mean :-S

Ahh yes Fanfiction. It's ever fangirl/boy's way of sticking to the powers that be when they don't get things right. I'll admit to reading Bones fanfiction, and have written a few stories for a creative writing class back in undergrad a few years ago. is an interesting place. Sometimes I have to tell people that the characters are not real.

BTW great blog. Love your jewelry. Have added you to my reading list.

Yeah, I've written and read. It's a favourite site of mine, actually. I wouldn't go so far to say that all the writers there are crap, but it's just a matter of taking the time to find the decent ones (:

@ amshuman.r : Lots of people don't follow the plot because they write AU (:

... Most people on the site aren't "fangirls" and whatnot. They're writers trying to improve or like you said, people practising English :|

You've got a sweet blog. Just try talk about something you know about :|
