Any Harry Potter Gen fics?

I’m looking for gen fics about the Harry Potter series if anyone knows any? Any length is fine. The story can be about any character. Funny fics would be appreciated! Especially funny fics involving the Next-Gen kids

Biweekly Genfic Recommendations/Self Advertisement

So... It's been a while... As in four weeks... School? Is that an acceptable excuse? Anyway, incase you don't remember, you can provide a recommendation to a fanfic not your own or self advertise one of your own fanfics in the comments. I can't remove your comment if you don't, but please include the fandom, genre, title, a short summary, and a link to whatever site you've posted it on. Yes, even Wattpad. Have fun!

Biweekly Genfic Self Advertisement/Recommendations

Still haven't got anything interesting to say. Regardless, you can provide a recommendation to a fanfic not your own or self advertise one of your own fanfics in the comments. I can't remove your comment if you don't, but please include the fandom, genre, title, a short summary, and a link to whatever site you've posted it on. Also, it's Aromantic Awareness Week, so if you can find or have written any fics featuring aromanticism, be sure to post them here. This includes queer platonic relationships, as they are, you know, platonic. Have at it!

Bi-Weekly Genfic Rec/Self Advertisement

I'm afraid I've run out of interesting things to say this week as a prelude to this post. Anyways, you can provide a recommendation to a fanfic not your own or self advertise one of your own fanfics in the comments. I can't remove your comment if you don't, but please include the fandom, genre, title, a short summary, and a link to whatever site you've posted it on. Have fun!

Generic Self Advertisement/Recommendations

Didn’t spend as much time between posts this time. I’m going to be doing this on a biweekly basis so I don’t have to remember as often. Anyway, comment the genre, the fandom, the title, the rating, and the link to either you fiction or someone else’s fanfic so long as they don’t have ships as the main focus. Have at it!

Well, it has been 20 days, so I suppose I can't quite criticize the mods for being on and mostly off. Regardless, same rules as last time. You can either post your own fic or somebody else's, but be sure to list the fandom, the important plot points, and a link the the fic. It doesn't matter much which fic site you want to. Have fun!

GenFic Self Advertisement and/or Recommendations

All due respect to the mods, but they seem to have fled this sub. Considering this, and not having the free time to be a proper mod, I'm going to post this. If anyone would like to advertise their own fic or someone else's, then feel free to comment below. I don't think I can delete comments or anything of the sort, but try to list the fandom, important story points, as well as a summary and link to the fic. To the best of my knowledge, they shouldn't have any ships at all, so if you have a fic that has a ship involved in it, even if it's not the focus, don't comment it here.

Anyways, Happy Holidays and have at it!

The Magnus Archives Genfic: Jon & Gerry, kidfic, fantasy au with horror elements (tws in post)

https://archiveofourown.org/works/52322422/chapters/132361327

hello i dont know if anyone here likes tma, but i recently started what is going to be a longform AU genfic with horror elements. potential trigger warnings for canonical child abuse and neglect, although i do not plan on featuring anything graphic, child abandonment (KIND OF. its definitely implied at least at first) as well as some horror elements that are canon typical in terms of severity, and may include psycological horror and mild to moderate body horror. its hard to get people to look at my tmafic so i thought i might post it whereever people might be interested!

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?
