What is fan fiction?

Fan fiction is a general term used to describe a story that centers around a book, movie, video game, or television series. These stories elaborate upon the existing story, offer alternative perspectives, endings, or events, and provide a more in-depth, creative way to experience your favorite book, movie, video game, or TV show. But all too often will writers create absolutely unreadable stories. Many of these atrocities could be prevented if the writer used better habits. That's why we're here.
