I write erotic fiction, as well as romantic, fantasy and paranormal fiction…and I have a regular “day job” that is completely separate from my “Author alter ego”.
There are however, those in my “daytime life” who know I write erotica so, of course, they assume I know all about “50 Shades.” (Go figure!) They have questions about the book, how it was associated with the “Twilight” Series, etc…and the most confusing thing to them is the concept of “Fan Fiction.”
It had been years since I’d read FanFic of any kind, so I decided to check out some of the popular sites 1) to see what was out there, 2) to try to better explain it when asked and 3) to give folks who were interested a point of reference.
So—as a result I stumbled upon www.adultfanfiction.net.
WARNING: Some of it is just flat out disturbing to even the most open-minded reader.
Also, some is so poorly written it is downright painful and NOT in a good BDSM way…
Some have the mechanics of writing well in hand, are excellent story-tellers and with a bit of line editing could probably find a legitimate publisher for their original work.
(“Original” as in change the names and story enough to make it “original”… sound familiar?)
So, I got to thinking about a blog I did back in February, “Sex+Magik=AWESOME!” …
One of the things I pointed out was that the fun, magikal, fantasy stuff seemed to cater to the kids and why was that? After reading some of the current FanFic, there’s a LOT of folks out there who think the same thing and have expressed their fantasies through their writing.
Snape was my personal favorite and I wanted him to have a happy ending, or at least be vindicated in the end.
(HUGE Alan Rickman fan here, so the movies may have made me a bit biased on that count )
Anyway…I came across one particular FanFic series and found how the author wove the fantasy around and through the original work, to be quite interesting.
Oh… and the sex was loads of fun, too!
It needs a bit of line-editing, but overall, she did a very nice job of integrating the new “character” into the exisitng story, keeping Snape’s character, IN character and setting up for a happy ending despite the fact that Snape dies in the original…
Hmmmm…or does he?
Here’s the LINK to that story, so take a look and then YOU decide and let me know!
In the meantime…if you want a bit of magik and fantasy designed specifically for adults with no chance of copyright controversy at ALL, check out, “Serving Nicole” the first in the magikal “Passion’s Portal” Series. from Ellora’s Cave.
There’s magik, fantasy, other dimensions and of course, LOTS of steaming hot SEX brought to you by authors Marilyn Campbell, Brandi Evans, Nara Malone, Charlotte Stein, and “moi”, Shannon Emmel!
Check out the Shadowling Manor website for a preview of upcoming stories, magical characters and sooooo much more!
I do LOVE my job! It’s FANtastic!
PS: Here’s an ‘Idea Channel” segment on Fan Fic…whooda thought?!!!
