What makes you write in some fandoms and not others?

Recommended Posts

I find that there are a lot of fandoms that I enjoy, but only so many that I want to write in, porn-wise. My criteria are more or less these:

  1. The fandom has to present a lot of opportunity for turning situations porny. Any show where there’s mad science, magic, or characters from other worlds with totally different cultures is good.
  2. If it’s TV, it has to be animated. I feel weird writing about characters who are physically portrayed by real actors.
  3. If the characters are young, they need to be precocious in some way.

I think this explains why I write lots of stories about fandoms like The Loud House and Phineas and Ferb but not, say, Milo Murphy’s law or Person of Interest.

How about y’all?

For me it absolutely just depends on whatever idea something gives me and my ability to actually get it written down from my head. I’ve been happy to write in fandoms I know nothing about from requests because of that. My only real “won’t do” for a fandom now is real person fic.

I’ve was doing more original stuff when I was writing last because I kept having thoughts about the same characters.

I started writing fan fiction for the CRPGs I play, mostly because the writers for the games absolutely suck at writing relationships. (Yes, David Gaider, I am talking to you.) Honestly, even with a ratings-required fade to black, the older games managed a great deal of heavy innuendo that the later games lacked. Well, until Dragon Age, thank the Maker!

Then I sort of slipped into a bit of LotR fan fiction because I like elves, particularly Tolkien’s not-at-all-fluffy elves. But I will say, while I would never speak ill of Lee Pace’s portrayal of Thranduil Oropherion, I write based on the books and not the movies or actors.

I have to really geek about a fandom to want to write for it.

Compensating for what is lacking in a fandom seems to be a major source of inspiration for fanfic.

Back in the day, on the old Bioware forums, there was a thread called “The Shirtless Saga.” It birthed many a fanfic. :lol:
