As a new member here, and one that has been around the internet a bit, I think we all know fanfiction. While I write a little myself, I have come to notice an extreme decline in good fanfiction. Regular sites with hundreds/thousands of hits a day rarely have good stories about them, and when they do they sometimes are so radical (like adding the author to the story itself) that other people think it's okay to cuss them out and run them off.
Every other story is so terrible that they only run about a paragraph long and normally involve homosexual intercourse.
But what I am trying to get at; should there be a limit upon fanfiction? Like definite reviews to siphon out the good from the bad on these larger sites?
GTFO my Sasuke x Naruto. I'll hit you with my yaoi stick, son!
you might find better reception in the Creative Works section. here, you'll either be flamed, trolled or both.
No way. We are most hospitable here. Especially me. Now excuse me while I fap to Tingle x Link.
Aside from the numerous lolz, I am being serious. If I need to repost this in some other area, just tell me.
Creative Works is for his personal creations, and he's not posting any of his own fanfics here.
I don't understand. Could you elaborate?
You know, I want to be honest with you...
This is the fucking internet, what do you expect?
"If you dont like it... you can go to hell."
Damn, just ignore the stuff you dont like... good stuff will be often quoted -> more often read -> become more public.
And now, time for some trolling.
STFU and GTH!
Edit: Oh and this thread is retarded, and you're a fag and [input random insult].

There's no way to limit fan fiction in order to fit your pleasures.
I don't read fan fiction in general cause it's not for me. If you asked me, I'd think they all were crap and we should eliminate all of em. XD

I'm still not going to touch it with a ten-foot pole even if it exists, but I don't see the problem with preventing stupid people from spreading their stupidity and multiplying. (Give 'em a hysterectomy while you're at it too, please.)
(CPR, there is fanfiction that individuals dislike, and there is crap. Two different things. Crap is crap no matter how many people like it. It's like a bad speed scanlation.)
