Genfic Discord Server

I'm new to Discord, but I've dipped my toe in making a gen fanfiction discord server (if there's one out there, please link/invite me!) I searched the best I was able to with my limited discord knowledge but found nothing.

So, I made one: https://discord.gg/x5raaDAF (it's officially three minutes old).

And, boy oh boy, do I hope I did it right!

[Deltarune - Undertale] Three Strings - KFC Possession (Kris-Frisk-Chara)

Summary: How do you tell people you have voices in your head? Kris had been wondering that since it first started, he was very young. Normally that would be step one to getting help. Except the voices in Kris' head are apparently real, which freaks him out more than if he'd just been crazy, honestly.

The events of Deltarune, but Chara and Frisk live in Kris' head rent-free. Includes expanded scenes from the Spamton Sweepstakes as well as additional pre-Chapter 1 content to expand on the characters and their new dynamics.

Looking for a fic

So a couple of years back I started reading a werewolf about this girl that was mated to the alpha of her pack but he was taunting her about how he would never want her cause she isn’t alpha so she rejects him and his pack and runs off to some other territory does that sound familiar?

Survey - Why is there so much M/M on AO3?

Hello! I am a SACE student completing the Stage 2 Research Project as part of my studies. My research project question is ‘how does the user interface of AO3 lead to a greater prevalence of M/M fanworks when compared to FanFiciton.Net and Wattpad’, and seeks to explore the topic of online slash fanfiction and fandom culture. I’m posting it here (as well as more general fanfiction subreddits) in order to survey those who read/write gen fics, which will give me a broader range of data.

This survey is completely anonymous and should take no more than five minutes to complete. You are free to discontinue your participation in this survey at any time or to decline to answer any questions. The survey can be found at the link below. Thank you for your assistance.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Has anyone ever had an idea for a fanfic, but it's more like a particular scene in a scenario you want to write, but you don't feel like writing the whole story to get to that particular scene because that would involve world building and set up that would just come out meh because you're not inspired to write that particular part? So you think about just publishing that scene and leaving context in the tags, summary and author's notes but are worried that it wouldn't be receaved as well as the whole story would've been? Just me?

A Penchant for Mischief - Tangled/HTTYD/Brave/ROTG Hogwarts AU fanfic

23:05 UTC


I made a Star Wars fan fic

the start of it happens in a timeline where Anakin, after he finds out the Chancellor is a dark lord, decides to destroy him with Mace Windu instead of joining him to save Padme, insisting that it's not the jedi way to go down that path. Time skip a long time and a period of peace is interrupted when what is remaining of the Seperatist army comes out to attack the Jedi Order, saying that their master in Sidious has returned somehow (I can tell you if you wanna know, but its not important in the grand scheme of things). Palpatine sends a message to the Council with a Sith Acolyte, saying that someone within the ranks of the jedi he wants as a new apprentice, someone claimed to be more powerful than Anakin ever was. Sin Mantatus, a new padawan of jedi master Scyrus is curious about both sides of the force, having the council fear of his curiosity. Through all of the story he is neglected by the jedi until his eventual downfall, as he destroys the jedi order after a civil war breaks out upon the Republic due to invasion of the sith.Now known as Darth Mantatus, he rules the galaxy with Palpatine, not out of loyalty, but only looking for more knowledge and power as he once had looked for. From here its almost the same as the originals, as the Rebels try to take down the Empire. in the end, Palpatine is bested by Mantatus as he takes on his own apprentice in a boy called Magnus, who's powers with the force were so powerful due to the amount of torture he went through for training with Mantatus. Luke Skywalker, who was trained by Scyrus as well as the Jedi Order when it was still thriving since he had been born then defeats Darth Mantatus, who was going easy on him, as death is what he wanted from the start. His death would test his powers as he found balance with the force, as he becomes a force ghost and haunts Luke

I still have to develop the last part where Magnus is in the rule, but its not as developed. How do you guys like it? I accept feedback!

One Piece Gen fic recommendations

Hi! New to this sub (how cool to have a gen section!) and just returned to writing fanfics after a very, very long hiatus, and it was recommended that I post here because my stories are not geared towards the romantic stuff. So, if you're looking for gen One Piece fics, or just some drama/comradeship-type stories without that lovey-dovey element, I might have something up your alley!

Rating - T (Language, Blood and Violence)

Title - Boys Night Out (complete - 5670 words)

Categories - Action | Humor | Nakamaship

Rating - G

Title - Food for Thought (complete - 3390 words)

I'd also love some gen One Piece recs, so please share if you have any or know of any you think are worth a read! Thank you~

(It wouldn't let me add the Rec flair for some reason...)

Updated: Added in a new one because more action never hurts, and it seemed silly to make a new post. :D

A recommendation for anime fans.

This isn’t a self promotion, but an advert for a story I dearly love and miss.

• ⁠My Recommendation: Magical Girl Noir Quest

• ⁠Fandom: Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Warhammer 40k, anime, Max Payne, magical girl

• ⁠Rating: 10/10.

• ⁠Summary: It’s better to just start reading the fanfiction, as it’s genuinely difficult to summarise or say in words with it’s batshit awesome plot. It’s predominantly a crossover between Warhammer 40k and PMMM, but it’s a lot more complex than that. We see crossovers, romance, bloodshed, a noir plot, golden guns, and memes galore. I suggest it because I finished reading up to it’s current status, only for my shock to rise as it has been on hiatus since late 2018, with the author citing a lack of interest; I’ve seen so many unfinished stories in my life, and in this time of uncertainty, I want to make sure this one story finds it’s ending. So please read this fanfiction (start here, and tell it’s author (Deculture, or @magicalgirlnoir on Twitter) to keep up the good work. Please.

Yoooo! I'm so glad this sub exists.

Hello! Refugee from r/FanFiction because those guys don't understand that not everyone likes endless, plotless romantic bullshit.
