Fan-Fic Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 27, 2014, 10:47 AM

:iconty-chou: put together this little questionnaire out of curiosity...I decided to fill it out :)

Readers-


Which are your favorite fandoms to read?
---Star Wars, Mass Effect, and Transformers are my top choices

Where do you go to find fan fiction?
---Fanfiction.net

What do you look for when choosing fics to read?
---It really depends. I prefer "additions" to cannon. I'm very weird like that. If you're going to do a fan-fiction, at least be a credit to the original work. Chopping the lore and making it something it's not (like I have seen in almost EVERY Harry Potter fiction) is annoying. If you want to write an original story, don't waste it on fan-fiction. If you want to write fan-fiction, make me believe in it.

How picky are you in what you choose to read?
---As seen in the aforementioned answer, I can't really buy into "what ifs" or super over-the-top OP fan-fictions. I also rather detest crossover fics.

What are your favorite genres to read?
---Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Parodies

Which genres/tropes do you avoid?
---Slash/Yaoi/Yuri as they are the most ridiculous pair-ups and are nothing more than the wet dreams of straight girls rather than supporting the LGBT community. I also steer clear of crossovers and anything that has to do with Harry Potter, not because I dislike Harry Potter, far from it, but the fan fictions are completely ludicrous.

Do prefer to read long chapter stories or one shots?
---I like both as long as they are done well.

How much fanfiction do you read on average?
---Not as much as I use to. In high school, I read a LOT of it. Now that I'm writing professionally, I rarely have time to read.

Any favorite/least favorite tropes you constantly see in your fandoms?
---besides slash? I hate when writers try to turn the characters into gods. I don't even want to get into the BS Star Wars/Harry Potter story my fiancé read where he miraculously turned Vader back into a full human as long as he promised to never use the Dark Side again. Somebody shoot me.

Any turn offs that might- or have- caused you to stop reading a fic?
---see previous answers, but specifically all of the crossovers and Harry Potter fictions my fiancé bores/irritates me with.

Any fics (not written by you) you would recommend to other readers?
---"So Not My Problem" and "The Jedi Kind of Had it Coming" are KoToR and KoToR II parodies by Sarah1281 on fan fiction.net They will have you rolling with laughter.



Writers-


What caused you to start writing fanfiction?
---Tekken 3. After playing Tekken 3 in an arcade in Texas, I found a love for the character Hwoarang. I was 14 years old then and was a HOPELESS romantic. My first fiction was about him and what became my first Mary-Sue. She wasn't that bad of one, but she was one, nonetheless. But I was 14, so I have no regrets! 

How long have you been writing fanfiction?
---15 years.

Which fandoms have you written for in the past 5 years?
---Mass Effect, Marvel Comics, and Left4Dead

What's the first fandom you ever wrote for?
---Tekken game series

What are your favorite genres to write?
---Action, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Adventure

How much time do you spend writing fanfics?
---I used to work on my fics every day, but now it's maybe once a month

Do you prefer to write one shots or chapter fics?
---both, depending on how I'm feeling.

What story aspects do you find to be difficult to write?
---I don't really. I'm a creative writing major. few things stump me nowadays

What is the easiest thing to write?
---yes.

Is there a fandom you haven't written for but want to?
---can't think of one right now, but I'm sure there is one or two.

What do you consider your greatest strength as a writer?
---Character development

Greatest weakness?
---the placing of the semicolon. Most writers hate the semicolon, but I am a little too fond of it...

As a fanfic writer, how important is canon or keeping in character to you?
---VERY. I cannot abide reading a fan fiction where characters act outside of their true personalities.

AUs: love them or hate them? Why?
---MILDLY Hate them. Every AU I have come across has overly super-powered main characters--specifically Harry Potter, once again--I hate hate hate when writers create heroes that have no weaknesses or flaws. I can't invest in such a cheap character. 

Tell us where we can find your fanfics.
---Shei B. Kroeker on Fanfiction.net


For my own curiosity-


Have you read any of my fanfics?
---No, but I have researched your OC's, like BlitzAngel. You have great concepts, and I'd like to read them someday

If yes, how did you first find them?
--N/A

Lastly, any fanfic questions you'd like to see me answer?
---How often have you found yourself writing a fan fiction only to realize it would make a much better original story than a fan fiction?
