- fan fic·tion
fiction written by a fan of, and featuring characters from, a particular TV series, movie, etc.
Over the last year and half, I have spent countless hours scouring hundreds of pages of fanfiction.
Twilight, Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Harry Potter, Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, and many many more.
I didn’t even know fanfiction was something people did, until Author Laura Kaye posted on her Facebook page that she started her writing by writing Twilight fanfiction.

I was intrigued. I immediately went to the site and spent a few days reading everything that she had written. By the time I had finished, I was addicted. From there, I read everything that sounded interesting to me and I never stopped reading. Books that I bought, new releases of my favorite authors all took a back seat to my fanfiction addiction. I found some of the most amazing stories and some really horrible ones, but the good surpassed the bad by thousands.
A lot of people think fanfiction is a pointless hobby, but what most don’t know is that those people are perfecting their writing skills and quite a few turn out to be very popular authors. I would imagine they don’t broadcast it because of how fanfiction is received.
I have many favorite stories, some are completely finished, others are still being written. And let me tell you, waiting for that next update can be a killer. Checking everyday just to see if a new chapter has been posted. The wait is unbearable. But, in the meantime, there are millions of other stories just waiting to be read.
Here are a few of my favorites just to get you started.
Personal blog site:
A Twilight fic.
Description: Bella refused to take Edward back. Alice divorced Jasper over it, blaming him for the split. Now Alice needs Jasper’s help. Bella will be coming face to face with a vampire soon. Jasper discovers a couple of things. One, for once a vampire isn’t stalking Bella. Two, he wants her. He just has to convince her that she wants him to.
Author: Bertie Bott
Twilight/Vampire Diaries Crossover.
Description: Sometimes life throws you a curve ball right when you need it most. Damon is asked to visit an old friend by someone he can’t say no to. When he gets to Forks, though, it’s not a family of vampires he finds waiting for him, but an angry girl who just might give his life the new direction he’s been seeking…
A Sookie Stackhouse fic.
Description: A retelling of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries from Eric’s POV – This fic isn’t completed, but totally worth your time anyway.
Author: My Secret O
A Sookie Stackhouse fic.
Description: This story takes place near the end of LDID-book 2. Instead of the maenad’s bloody massacre, she finds Sookie and Eric fighting their attraction and gives them a unique kind of madness.
