I love the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, and discovered some interesting fanfiction based off the original character. Obviously I didn’t read through everything but the small sample I did peruse didn’t include any of the somewhat provocative writing that I was ready for, after reading all of the other introductory articles concerning fanfiction.
Personally if I were to write a fanfiction I would consider writing it on Grey’s Anatomy, which would focus on Derek and Meredith’s relationship. Everyone that watches the show knows they’ve had a bumpy relationship for the entire show, and for once I would like to see them have a healthy and happy relationship that lasts for more than a few episodes! I think their relationship is a great frustration to most people who watch the show therefore I great number of people would probably be interested in this fanfiction. Although dragging out the uncertainty of their future together is probably a lot of what keeps people attracted to the show, it would be nice to see them do something productive with their relationship. Even though this obviously wouldn’t be the way that the real show would pan out it could be a productive aside offered to fans who may have been craving closure between the key characters. There have been so many times where the direction that the writers of Grey’s have taken the script has frustrated me, and the idea of fanfiction gives me the ability to publish my own input on how I think the storyline should be running. It’s definitely an interesting concept. The only problem I may see with this is that people could very easily get the true material mixed up with the fanfiction material. I know if I were to get really involved with fanfiction I might forget about what has really happened in a show or movie. But I guess that’s somewhat the point thought, or is it?
