Fan Fiction Dot Net - Probably the single most popular fanfiction archive out there, and one of the biggest, with a fairly extensive set of fandoms and its own organizational system. However, it's not especially easy to navigate, it's not designed for particularly easy communication between individuals, and it has a fairly widespread reputation for hosting a lot of less-than-great fanfic.
This thing (which is not a fic, technically) is a Guide to Writing Fanfiction. Actually, it's considerably less than that. It's the insane ramblings of a girl who is suffering from writer's block (kind of) and needs to let out steam somehow. Said girl is no expert writer, but she does have literal years of experience haunting fandoms, especially this one. So she will cover OCs, plots, story.

When you're writing fanfiction, you are writing for fans. This means you have the distinct advantage of not having to set the stage; the fans already know the stage pretty well. Fans don't need lengthy introductions; most of them know the canon characters inside and out. But it also means they're going to be less forgiving about what you do with the canon characters. Distort Clark Kent too.
And even if you don’t write fanfiction yourself, maybe you’ll enjoy reading a deconstruction of the medium. 1. I will not read your fanfic if nothing happens on the first screen.

When writing a Star Wars fanfic, the first question to ask is: will my character use the Force? This should come before deciding a character’s personality, characteristics, or motivations.

But when I start to write for I diffrent fandom that I'm not as comfortable in, I get really self conscious. I remember how I can really get bugged by little mistakes in Harry Potter fanfictions. Such as saying Lockhart was a Huffkepuff or that Harry's 'real name' is Harrison (I don't mind it if it's AU, but when it's clear the author doesn't know, those little things can bug me a lot).
I decided to write a fanfic because I really liked the world in an anime and wanted to explore some characters more, and I decided to write it in English because the fandom in my language is small and I wanted to practice my English.

Not quite new to writing fanfiction. Celebrate. I thought I'd started writing fanfiction for the first time last year. I was wrong. I just went through my stuff from when I was a kid (like, when I was 6-7 years old) and I found a Lord of the Rings fanfic I started writing - complete with a painted cover and a list of chapters in addition to the one-and-a-half page I wrote. It's great.

The most popular fanfic sites include Tumblr, AO3, WattPad.
