This is something that means a lot to me. What makes a fanfiction a good story? Fanfiction doesn't exactly have a good reputation amongst a lot of people. There have been a lot who have written some...questionable fan fiction. Some would even call them off as "nuts", but I believe that fanfiction is anything but completely nuts.
What makes a good fanfiction a really great story is how well the writer pays attention to some of the most important details of the story, which is the original work that consists of an original story, the characters and how well the writers pay attention to their personalities and everything about them that make the characters unique, it's also important to not create ridiculous ideas that wouldn't make any sense. For crossovers, it is important to bring the characters together without having to change too much of who they are. The only changes that need to be made are those that should be based on their experiences during the story, such as learning a new lesson, developing skills needed to deal with situations within the story, developing bonds with particular characters outside their stories, while including some reasons why they are developing that bond, even bring out a part of them that you probably would not have seen be brought out, but is still very much a part of their original character. I do have a lot that I need to say about characters, so I could go on and on about them.
I create and write fanfiction for a number of reasons. I write them as a way of expressing how much I love a lot of these shows. But....there have been unusual occurrences that have caused me to make decision. I would be more than happy to talk more about them.
