Roswell Fanfiction Appreciation #1

Welcome to the Roswell Fanfiction Thread!





“There's a time and place for everything, and I believe it’s called 'fan fiction'.”
-Joss Whedon



fan fic·tion
noun


fiction written by a fan of, and featuring characters from, a particular TV series, movie, etc.


Roswell Fan Fiction official site: Roswell Fanatics
Roswell Fanatics • Index page


Basic Fanfiction Terminology Guide:
  • A/N (or AN) - Author's Note
-refers to an author's personal notes about the story, writing experience, or whatever else the author wants to talk to their readers about.
  • Angst
-refers to a genre of stories with prevalent physical or, mainly, emotional torment of characters. Most stories with an angst description contain significant levels of characters feeling emotions such as fear, anxiety, or sadness.
  • Alternate Universe (or AU)
-refers to a story of which there is a (often major) plot, setting, or character deviation away from established canon. AUs can be AU with aliens or AU without aliens; genre in which authors create and develop their own unique worlds in which to place familiar characters.
  • Canon
-refers to elements established by the original source material (TV show, book, movie, etc...) itself for either plot, setting, or character developments. The official details, as it were.
  • CC (Conventional Couples)
-refers to stories in which the romantic and/or sexual relationships depicted were also depicted on the show; generally viewed as canonical relationships.
  • Crossover
-refers to stories in which the characters, premises, or settings of more than one fandom coincide.
  • Fanon
-refers to common plot or character elements that were not established by the original source material, but are generally accepted to be true by the fans anyway. These are the un-official details, folks. Fanon concepts have often become so prevalent in the fandom that their origins (which fan came up with the idea first) are no longer remembered.
  • Ficlet
-refers to a complete short story, usually only a few thousand words long.
  • Fluff
-refers to stories in which there is no angst or, often, any real plot either. Fluff fics tend to be short and sweet, with little to no depth, but often quite comforting to read.
  • Het (or m/f)
-refers to the presence of a heterosexual relationship featuring at least one canon character.
  • OC (Original Character)
-refers to a non-canon character created by the author that is featured prominently in the story. May be male or female, and either a major or minor character in comparison to the canon characters.
  • OTP (One True Pairing)
-refers to an author's preferred relationship pairing between certain characters within a fandom.
  • PWP (Plot Without Plot/Plot? What Plot?) (AKA: Smut)
-refers to stories with a defining characteristic of little to absolutely no plot. May be vignettes, character studies or, most frequently, strictly pure sex.
  • Slash (f/f or m/m)
-refers to the presence of a homosexual relationship featuring at least one canon character. May or may not include graphic or explicit sexual content.
  • Tag (or Episode Tag)
-refers to a, usually, short story that picks up from the end of a canon episode and adds to or fleshes out the episode in whole or in part.
  • UC (Unconventional Couple/s)
-refers to a story in which characters who are not typically (canonically) linked on the show develop a romantic and/or sexual relationship
  • WIP (Work in Progress)
-refers to the fact that the story is not yet completely written, but is actively undergoing updates and revisions.



“If a story is in you, it has got to come out.”
-William Faulkner

“Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch
after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker.
They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about.
The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction.
They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media.
The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.”

-Lev Grossman



In response to Majandra joking about Maria/Nasedo . . .

"That's some fanfiction."

-Brendan Fehr

As promised, here is a completely new and re-vamped fanfiction thread.

Obviously I couldn't provide links to all of the great fics out there. I ended up doing 10 Dreamer and 10 Candy fics, based on number of recommendations I received for them, overall fic quality, award-wins history, and perceived quality of writing. I'm not gonna lie, for the Candy fics, I did put some of my personal favorites on there.

And I hope it doesn't look selfish that I put some of my own stuff on here.

Thank you, thank you, I'm glad you guys like it!

And Aubrey, I put that terminology guide on there for you since you're always asking what all these acronyms stand for! It sure does get confusing sometimes!

ETA: The banner for the fic "Snapshot" is seriously one of the best fanfiction banners I've ever seen!

Beautiful, beautiful thread!! Thank you so much April. It's so good to see so many Roswellians on the boards. I know I've been MIA a lot due to RL. But I'm here lurking. So great to see you and all the others who have come back to our fave place to be. Angel and I have more stories yet to tell, it's good to see this awesome thread.

A simple little banner to go along with a simple little fic I wrote yesterday:



It's a short piece of fluff fanfiction, written to represent the "sloth" sin for Roswell Heaven's 7 Deadly Sins fanfic challenge. I didn't think I could do it at first, but I think I ended up making laziness sort of romantic.
