30 Day Fanfic Challenge – Day 3

The longest story/series of stories you’ve read

I completely lost track of time yesterday, so I didn’t do my blog post for this challenge. I shall not be defeated, however, and shall simply acknowledge my setback and pick up where I left off.

The theme for day three is to write about the longest story or series of stories I’ve read. This is actually a difficult question to answer for two reasons. Firstly, I have read so many fanfics over the years that I simply can’t remember every single one of them. I will solve this issue by simply choosing from the stories I’ve kept as favourites.

Secondly, this question could be interpreted in several ways. Does it mean the series with the greatest number of stories? Does it mean the story with the highest word count? Or does it refer to overall word count, regardless of the total number of stories? Continue reading


30 Day Fanfic Challenge – Day 2

Favourite character that is developed in fan-fiction but barely mentioned in the source material

Almost every book, movie and game has at least one character that is mentioned once by name before being completely ignored from then on; or maybe has one or two lines, or cuts the protagonist off in traffic, or has some other minor interaction with one or more of the major players.

These minor, to barely existing, characters are a major boon for fan-fiction writers as they allow the inclusion of an OC (original character), without them technically being an OC. Sometimes, though, these characters are used so much, they begin to develop common characteristics which are gradually accepted as fanon. Continue reading

30 Day Fanfic Challenge

Around five years ago, I completed a book challenge, which I originally found at Blogs-Of-A-Bookaholic. Basically, the idea was to post every day for 30 days, with a set theme for each day. I had fun participating in that challenge, and a fair bit of time has passed since then, so I figure it’s about time to complete another one. Rather than looking up another book challenge, however, I decided it might be nice to do something a little different. My challenge is still related to reading but, instead of blogging about books, I (and anyone else who chooses to participate) will be blogging about fan-fiction. Continue reading
