Fanfiction: Saint Seiya (2014)



What is fanfiction?




Fanfiction, also known as fanfic or fic, is a type of literature that is written by fans of a certain work, such as a book, movie, TV show, game, comic, or anime. Fanfiction writers use the original work as a source of inspiration and create their own stories that feature the same or similar characters, settings, themes, or events. Fanfiction can be seen as a form of homage, criticism, parody, or reinterpretation of the original work.


Definition and types of fanfiction




According to Wikipedia, fanfiction is defined as "a work of fiction produced by fans of a particular work rather than by its creator". Fanfiction can be categorized into different types based on various criteria, such as:


  • The relationship between the fanfic and the original work. For example, some fanfics are canon, which means they follow the official storyline and facts of the original work; some are alternate universe (AU), which means they change some aspects of the original work, such as the setting, time period, or genre; some are crossover, which means they combine elements from two or more different works.



  • The genre or style of the fanfic. For example, some fanfics are romance, which means they focus on the romantic relationship between two or more characters; some are angst, which means they deal with emotional pain or conflict; some are humor, which means they aim to make the readers laugh; some are action, which means they involve physical fights or battles.



  • The length or format of the fanfic. For example, some fanfics are one-shot, which means they are complete in one chapter; some are multi-chapter, which means they have more than one chapter; some are drabble, which means they are very short, usually less than 100 words; some are novel, which means they are very long, usually more than 50,000 words.



  • The rating or content of the fanfic. For example, some fanfics are general, which means they are suitable for all audiences; some are mature, which means they contain explicit sexual or violent scenes; some are teen, which means they contain mild sexual or violent scenes; some are not rated, which means they do not specify their rating.



Of course, these are not the only types of fanfiction, and some fanfics may belong to more than one type. Fanfiction writers often use tags or labels to indicate the type of their fanfic, so that readers can find what they are looking for.


Benefits and challenges of fanfiction




Fanfiction is a popular and diverse form of literature that has many benefits and challenges for both writers and readers. Some of the benefits are:


  • Fanfiction allows writers to express their creativity and passion for the original work, and to share their ideas and opinions with other fans.



  • Fanfiction allows readers to enjoy more stories and perspectives about the original work, and to discover new works and fandoms through fanfiction.



  • Fanfiction allows writers and readers to interact with each other through comments, feedback, reviews, recommendations, or collaborations.



  • Fanfiction allows writers and readers to learn and improve their writing skills, vocabulary, grammar, or knowledge of the original work or other topics.



Some of the challenges are:


  • Fanfiction may face legal or ethical issues if it infringes on the rights or reputation of the original work or its creator, or if it contains plagiarism or inappropriate content.



  • Fanfiction may face quality or credibility issues if it contains errors, inconsistencies, or inaccuracies with the original work or its canon, or if it lacks proper editing or formatting.



  • Fanfiction may face criticism or conflict from other fans or the original creator if it contradicts or offends their views or preferences about the original work or its characters.



  • Fanfiction may face competition or pressure from other fanfics or works in terms of popularity, ratings, reviews, or awards.



Despite these challenges, fanfiction remains a thriving and enjoyable form of literature that attracts millions of writers and readers around the world.
