  • Hate to plug my own shit, but -

    I did the edgy thing and started a review blog. I mostly do fanfiction and general fan culture for starters, but I plan on doing published books as well. One of the books I intend to review in the future is 'The Hate U Give' and 'The Best Kind of People', the latter of which I reviewed on Goodreads (as you can imagine, it is liberal trash). The content I write about may not interest you dudes, but it will give you a window onto how people my age range (18-24, 24-30) interact with culture. Basically, if you want to know why 50 Shades of Grey, a fanfic of a fanfic series (that being Twilight) became so popular I could help explain.

    If you're interested, here it is: https://ghostofafamiliar.blogspot.co...teresting.html

    Oh, good. I never could figure out how this utter trash, so poorly written - I've seen fanfics a million times better - is so famous. Still, I have to admire someone who gets rich by writing so badly. "Holy crap/fuck/shit".

      80% of all fanfiction is just the author taking their favorite characters from whatever work of fiction or media and making them have sex with each other, and most of the rest is weird Mary-Sue style self-inserts and author stand-in type characters. I'll check it out though, I'm always interested to get a new perspective on what the hell is going on in these demented people's heads.

        The entertainment value is not to be dismissed. Mostly it's either 14-year-old virgins writing their semi-literate version of straight characters having homosexual anal sex, or the Mary Sues you mention, engaging in explicit and often hilariously erroneous sex with whoever they fantasize about. These self-inserts are always gorgeous, fierce and feisty and they have names like Britannia Constantin, Rylynn, Juniper, and Rhyssonie. I think the worst offenders are in "The Walking Dead" fandom.

        Stay away from "mpreg" and "Alpha/Beta" stuff. Those will make you nauseated. There are some very well-written stories by talented people, but they're not easy to find.
