Do you read Fan-fiction?
When I was in high school, I used to read a lot of fan-fiction about some of my favorite TV shows, like Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. My favorites were the ones that centered on Heero Yuy, one of the five primary gundam pilots.
These days, I don’t really read fan-fiction anymore. I just don’t have the time for it. Being a grown up means that I have to plan my time out a little more wisely than I used to. If I want to read something, I’m usually going to go with a published book, instead of taking a chance on a story written by an anonymous person on the internet.
Then again, there are now full-fledged books based on the stories I loved in my youth. Let’s take The Wizard of Oz books by L. Frank Baum – there are entire series of books that are basically fan-fiction about his characters and their world. What are The Wicked Years, and the Dorothy Must Die series, but beautifully written fan-fiction?
Have you ever read fan-fiction? Do you still? What fan-fiction series speak to you?
