[personal profile] halberdier asked me about my favorite fanfics, written by myself and others. I will get this out of the way right now: I am terrible at giving fic recs. I haven't been reading much fic lately, and I'm pickier than is really helpful, about quality of writing, about characterization, about canon details. And then, when I do find something I enjoy, I'm not in the habit of bookmarking it or otherwise saving the link to share with others. I love the kudos function on AO3, but it's not as useful as leaving comments for going back to find things again. Last but not least, I'm avoiding my two largest and most active fandoms right now for fear of DA:I and Age of Ultron spoilers, so I'm not exactly super active.

All that said, here are a few favorites, all Dragon Age except for one since that's mostly what I've been bookmarking. They're all older, and there probably stuff that I've thrown at all of you many times before, but then again there are new people here, so maybe not. :)

Canticle by [archiveofourown.org profile] tarysande. The story that actually made me interested in Sebastian Vael. Really I could just tell you to read everything that Tarysande has ever written, she's that good, but this is an excellent place to start. She's more active in Mass Effect these days, so if that's your area of interest, check her out for sure.

Amaranthine by [archiveofourown.org profile] rhiannon87. An AU where the Hawke family ends up in Amaranthine rather than Kirkwall. Rhi is another favorite author, mostly out of DA fandom, but she writes in Marvel as well.

A Hole in the World by sahiya. A sad, sweet, and lovely Temeraire fic.

Love and Levirate by [archiveofourown.org profile] JessicaJones. Maybe the definitive Alistair/Anora story.

I enjoyed it anyway. ;) Somewhat AU, at least by my interpretation of events. Posted on AO3.

I posted earlier today about the Women of Dragon Age Challenge. Over on Tumblr, there's been a little bit of a discussion about the choice of the Bechdel Test as a criteria for submissions. I have some thoughts -- of course I have thoughts; any discussion of the Bechdel Test is like catnip to me -- but I didn't want to hijack the post advertising the challenge, so I've come over here to talk about it instead.

One of the things I love about this particular challenge is that it explicitly references Bechdel and requests that every story pass. I have said before, and continue to believe, that the Bechdel Test is not primarily about evaluating the quality or female-friendliness of any one particular work but about looking at larger patterns in media. But still, I do think it can be a really great tool to apply to our own writing, because it makes us really think about our choices. Which characters do we write about? What do they talk about? And why?

To use a Dragon Age example, let's say I decided to write a story about Aveline and Brennan, discussing a man they arrested and the crime he committed. Is that a conversation about a man, or is it a conversation about work? I would tend to say that it's the latter, which would allow it to be considered it a Bechdel pass, even if the criminal is the only thing they talk about. But let me take a step back and ask another question: does the criminal have to be a man? Is there some reason intrinsic to the story I'm telling? Or did I make him a man because we tend to think of male as the default? Did I pick a minor male NPC because he fit into the story better than any other NPC available, or was he just an easy choice? Could I have made the character a woman, or chosen a female NPC, without any fundamental change to the story? And if the answer is yes, then why not do it?

I'm not saying every story can or should pass the strictest version of the Bechdel Test, especially not short stories, and especially not in fanfic where we are limited by the characters presented to us in canon. But I appreciate that we can use this challenge, and others like it, as an opportunity to look at our work a little more critically.

Ganked from [personal profile] lassarina and others.

I will post the names of all the files in my WIP folder(s), regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Choose one (1), and I will post a random line or two.

I did something similar awhile back, but my WIP folder has grown and shrunk and grown again over the last few months, so it seemed worthwhile to do another round. Also now you get to see how boring my WIP names tend to be. And also that the line between "WIP" and "Abandoned Idea" tends to be a fine one. But anyway, here we go:

When I first became active in fandom, back in 2005, I was the very definition of "monofannish". I only wrote in one universe -- Final Fantasy X/X-2 -- and had very little interest in branching out. I would happily read fic in other canons, FF and otherwise, and I would write and talk meta for all kinds of sources, but when it came to creating fanwork, I was perfectly content to hang out in my own little corner. Friends would convince me to check out other sources, and I would often enjoy them, but never was I really tempted to start writing fic. And it's not as though I hadn't thought about it; once I got involved in fandom, I started looking at everything I read, watched, or played as a potential source of story ideas. But nothing outside of FFX and FFX-2 ever gave me anything powerful enough to be worth writing down.

Since those days, I have branched out a little, in that I am more able to take prompt ideas for fandoms I'm not really "in" and do something interesting with them: Sunshine, Star Trek, Babylon 5, other Final Fantasy games. But in all that time, I've only really discovered two new fandoms. The first was Final Fantasy XII. I played the game when it first came out, and wrote a few Kiss Battle and prompt meme stories, but I didn't get deeply into it in a fannish way until I replayed and, at around the same time, wrote three stories for the 2009 round of Final Fantasy Exchange. I was finally hooked, and I started considering myself a part of the FF12 fandom from that point on.

The second, and the first outside the realm of FF, was Dragon Age. I'm still in the first blush with this source, and I've only just started playing the sequel (about which more on another day), so it's hard to say yet whether it will last, but I have a feeling it will. Already, since finishing my first playthrough of Origins in April, I've published three stories, have several more in progress, and am devouring fic at a rapid rate. I haven't felt a creative rush like this since I first entered fandom, and it's got me to wondering: why? Out of all the games I've played since 2005, all the books I've read, all the movies and TV shows I've watched, why is Dragon Age the one that finally broke through? I've been thinking about it, looking for commonalities, and have come to a few preliminary conclusions.

1. I need a lot of compelling source material.
It is surely no coincidence that all of these canon sources are video games. And not just any games, but multi-hour RPGs, with tons of background detail, large casts, strong stories, and settings with complex history and culture. A game is many hours longer than your average movie, and unlike most TV series it usually tells a single coherent story, which I think helps me connect with the characters.

2. I need some gaps to fill.
This might seem to contradict the first item, but actually I think this is part of why games work for me as a source. Many books, especially series, will have the detail I need, but they don't leave as much unsaid, either. Games tend to elide a lot more backstory and character interaction, leaving me more room to play with the universe and the characters. I need a careful balance between Items 1 and 2, and so far games seem to hit it better than any other media. More often than not, I write a story because there's a question I need to answer. The more gaps there are, the more likely that many such questions exist.

3. I need a 'ship.
But not just a 'ship that I like. Plenty of sources have 'ships I like, even adore, without driving me to write about them. No, I need a complete and total OTP obsession, to the point that I need to know more about them, explore every facet, bring them together and split them up and reunite them and see what happens. First it was Paine/Nooj and then it was Ashe/Balthier and now it's Alistair/Warden, but the pattern is clear. (There are interesting similarities between these pairings, but that's another post, too.) This was the realization that came as the greatest surprise to me, because I write so much gen, and I sometimes look sideways at the focus of some fandoms on 'shipping. But it fits, too, because I am a character-driven writer. Even my gen tends to be character-driven. And romance can provide a lot of fascinating opportunities for character interaction. It occurs to me that, the times I've jumped into a new fandom, the romance has come first, and then as I've written those stories, new story ideas come to me: gen stories about the characters in my 'ship, different pairings, new characters. And so I branch out. It happened with FFX/X-2 and with FF12, and I imagine it'll happen eventually with Dragon Age.

So, now that I've gotten my tl;dr on, what's yours? What draws you to become fannish about a source, rather than just liking it a lot? Are there patterns, or is it more random? I'm curious to know if other people's experiences are similar, or very different.

Author Lev Grossman wrote an article on fanfiction for Time Magazine, notable largely because he asked for the input of fandom, and it shows -- it's one of the better entries to the genre, despite a few weird things like an implication that hurt/comfort is by necessity AU, and a little too much attention paid to fic-hating authors of the "but the characters are my children!!!" school. I'm also amused by his comparison of fanfic to punk music -- clearly, he didn't attend the right FogCon panels. But overall, it's worth a look.

Ganked from [personal profile] cypher.

List your top ten fics by hitcount posted on Archive of Our Own (AO3). I am, unsurprisingly, also [archiveofourown.org profile] owlmoose over there.

The list. A couple of themes might emerge, kind of? )

Is it a surprise that literally half of the stories on this list feature Balthier? No, it is not. I suppose it surprises me a little that the list is so FFXII-heavy -- only one X-2 story, and two FFX. Then again, there almost twice as many FFXII stories currently in the archive than there are FFX and X-2 stories combined, which suggests a higher readership for that fandom. So maybe it does make a certain amount of sense.

[personal profile] justira asked me to share what I look for in fanfiction, illustrated by recs.

1. Characterization

The A-number 1 thing I care about in any story, really, but especially in the case of fanfic: characters that ring true. I will forgive a lot of other problems in a story if the characters act and sound like themselves. (The converse is also true: a story can be brilliantly written, expertly plotted, amazingly original, but if the characters feel wrong, I can't enjoy it.)

This will by definition have to be true of anything I rec, but here are a couple of stories I particularly like as character studies:

Duty by darkcyan. FFX
One of the first Auron stories I ever read, and one of the most influential in terms of how I characterize him.

Matched Set by [livejournal.com profile] domlandbubbles. FFXII
Excellent look at Balthier.

2. Gameplay and/or world-building meta

I am a total sucker for this. To use some awesome terminology that I just learned from [profile] pixelnyx, I love stories that can provide a Watsonian explanation to a Doylist problem (see http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WatsonianVersusDoylist). How does magic work? What's a save point? Why was this character not in the sequel? Tell me these things, and make it follow logically in-world, and you have me forever.

Examples:

Swords are Swords by [personal profile] spindizzy. FFX-2
How did the Gullwings end up with Tidus's and Auron's swords? And how did they feel about it?

Friendly Monsters by fyre bird. FFIX
What's up with those monsters who give you items, anyway?

3. Answers to Interesting Questions

This seems, to me, to be the entire point of writing fic: exploring the what-ifs that aren't covered by canon. This aspect is often associated with AUs: What if this thing in canon had happened differently, or hadn't happened at all? But I also find good questions to be an important part of post-canon stories, and pre-canon, and scene fillers. What happened while we weren't watching after that? What happened next, or before?

Examples:

All He Had to Say by The Jack of Spades. FFX-2
What happened to Gippal and Nooj after the Commsphere stopped transmitting?

Zanarkand Sleeps by Princess Artemis. FFX AU
What if Auron never left Zanarkand?

4. The Unexpected

This is where my taste for crack comes in: weird parings, out-there crossovers, unusual sources. But! See above. The story still must be true to the characters. That's hard to pull off, which is why I'm a lot pickier in this category, and why I rarely write it myself.

Examples:

Make a Metal Gear by K Project. Metal Gear Solid/Katamari Damacy crossover

[ I succeeded in crawling into the breast of my big boss! ] by miss_priss. Maru the Box-Loving Cat

Break by [livejournal.com profile] kytha. FFX-2. Rin/Nooj (gen, but with undertones)

owlmoose: (Default)
I'm starting to feel like a lot of these questions are about characters and characterization; I hope it's not getting too repetative.

Onward...

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

As a fanfic writer, for the most part I'm not "creating" characters as such: the names exist, and so do the faces, and in most cases at least the bare outlines of history and personality. Some require more fleshing out than others, of course, and as mentioned previously I do come up with original characters pretty frequently, especially in longer stories. How the process works depends a lot on where the particular character falls on this spectrum. I'd say there are four rough categories, with a lot of continuum space between them:

The four kinds of fanfic characters )

What do you think, other fic writers? Do you agree with these categories, or do you see a different schemata? Any and all thoughts welcome.

So I was following links off posts on [community profile] metafandom, and I came across this post from just over a year ago about book fandom vs. media fandom, the ways in which their cultures differ, and why we often see apparent clashes between them. The major theme of the post is that these terms are actually not very accurate; [personal profile] obsession_inc proposes the names "affirmational fandom" and "transformational fandom", terminology that gets much closer to the heart of the differences. It's a really thoughtful post, and I recommend both it and [personal profile] damned_colonial's recent follow-up (which is where I found the link in the first place).

But what really caught my eye about [personal profile] obsession_inc's post is how eerily prescient it is. To wit:

I've come to a conclusion. It may not be hitting movie- and TV-creators yet, but the democratizing forces of the internet are starting to freak out authors (and editors, and publishers) of books and comic books. We are rocketing toward a point where you might need a regular publisher to put a book in print, but it'll be ridiculously easy for anyone to be published for eBook readers like Kindle. [snip] I get the feeling that the battles between creators and transformational fans are starting to ramp up as a prelude to a larger battle: the moment when, on the internet, creators are in direct competition with their fic-writing fans.

This is a giant ass-pull on my part, of course, so take with an equivalently sized grain of salt. That said, I'm going on the record as thinking that things in the next two years are going to get really nutty with authors.


I read this part of the post, and I immediately thought of this. And this. And also this, which I didn't post about at the time because, as the write-up title suggests, it didn't really contribute anything new to the discussion besides a new author to add to my "will never buy books from" list. And what comes to mind is: why so many authors sharing their rage about fanfic now, at this moment? True, the community of professional sf/f writers is a fairly small one, and topics can travel through it like wildfire, just as they do in fandom. But might there be more to it than that? The Internet and self-publishing have had two related effects on fanfic that are relevant to this discussion: fic has become far easier to distribute than it once was, and as a result pro authors are much more likely to stumble across it. This isn't the first time we've had authors flip out over fanfiction, of course (Robin Hobb and Anne Rice are among the more memorable, but many other examples come to mind), but I can't think of another time when we had so many in a row. I'm sure there are other reasons, but I wonder if [personal profile] obsession_inc might not have nailed a significant part of it, and before it even happened! The seeds of these kerfuffles have been brewing, and the fallout is probably far from over.

As a side note, there is one part of the above quote that I'm not sure I agree with: the suggestion that TV and movie creators haven't yet gotten involved in these types of battles because fan-created content isn't yet a threat to their livelihoods. Although there might be something to it -- we're still a ways off from the average fan having access to the same production values as your average Hollywood movie -- I believe it has more to do with the issue of sole authorship (which I've discussed in comments, but not really in any of my posts on this subject). Many, many people are involved in the creation of a character for a TV show, or a movie, or a game: writers, directors, producers, actors. Even if one individual came up with the initial idea for the characters and the world they inhabit, creation is more of a group effort. So it seems intuitive to me that the sense of ownership would be much less for these creators who work in teams. Whereas I expect most book authors are used to thinking of themselves as the sole arbiter of their universe. So I can see fanworks coming as more of a shock to their system. Not to absolve the authors who handle that shock badly, especially considering how many authors seem happy to allow fanworks. (And note that, as of this writing, there isn't a single TV or movie or game writer on the "no fanworks" list, and Archie Comics is the only property that could be considered a shared universe. Interesting, yes?)
owlmoose: (Default)
It appears that Gabaldon has, after posting a fauxpology (the classic "I'm sorry if anyone's feelings were hurt" response), deleted all her posts on the subject. Couldn't stand the heat? Some attempt to save face? Since the posts are gone, and she hasn't replaced them with a statement on their removal, we'll probably never know why. But I hope she knows that, on the Internet, wank is forever.

I also wanted to share two follow up notes to the GRRM posts. First, check out this totally fascinating post from [livejournal.com profile] nihilistic_kid which basically demolishes GRRM's claim that H.P. Lovecraft died in poverty because he allowed unlicensed derivative fanworks of his books. I really recommend this post, not only for the information about Lovecraft, but especially for links and discussion in the comments that cast the infamous Marion Zimmer Bradley fanfic case in a somewhat different light.

The other is from GRRM himself. He's posted on this issue twice more since his original comment on the situation. The first was a standard attempt to simultaneously entrench and backpedal (he did acknowledge the copyright misconpetion, sorta), but the other is actually fairly thoughtful and interesting, and it's worth reading, if you can get past his annoying habit of referring to fan writers as "fan fictioneers". It's an emotional look at what his characters mean to him, and why reaction to fanworks can be just as much about love for the original creators as for the fan writers. Fan writers create out of love for the characters and the world; original creators feel protective of their creations for the same reason. While I still take issue with some of the particulars of his argument, I find it a lot more sympathetic than the usual "copyright/stealing/talentless hacks/write your own stuff/ZOMGporn!" tactics that pro authors often use against fic. Good debate in the comments, too. For starters, I recommend this comment, a semi-rebuttal from [livejournal.com profile] dagas_isa taking issue with the implication that pro authors who allow and/or encourage fic love their characters less than GRRM. And I agree: not more or less, although possibly different.
owlmoose: (Default)
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that GRRM has now gotten involved in this lastest fanfic discussion, since he's voiced loud opposition to fanfiction in the past, and Diana Gabaldon was published in the last collection he edited. (Which, possibly ironically, is the book I'm reading right now. Just for the cherry on the "authors who are connected with fic, pro and con" sundae, Naomi Novik is in it, too.) On the whole, his arguments are more reasoned than hers -- at least he doesn't compare us to a bunch of violent criminals -- but there is one point that I absolutely must take issue with.

Furthermore, we HAVE to do it. That's something no one addressed, in those thousand comments about Diana's blog. There was a lot of talk about copyright, and whether or not fan fiction was illegal, whether it was fair use [...] but no one mentioned one crucial aspect of copyright law -- a copyright MUST BE DEFENDED. If someone infringes on your copyright, and you are aware of the infringement, and you do not defend your copyright, the law assumes that you have abandoned it.


I allow that this would be a really strong argument against allowing fanfic if it were true. But guess what? It isn't.

This particular misconception comes up a lot in debates about fanfic. While it is generally true of trademarks -- if you don't defend them and keep people from using them as generic terms, you can lose them; that's what happened to xerox and kleenex and aspirin, for example, and that's why Google fights against the use of "to google" as a lower-cased verb -- it is not at all true of copyright. As of 1978, in the United States, any creative work placed into a fixed form is, at that point, copyrighted to the original creator. This is true regardless of whether the creator asserts copyright on the work, registers the copyright with the Library of Congress, or defends against unauthorized use. That copyright is yours, and nothing save the passage of time (as of now, 70 years after your death) or your decision to sell the copyright to someone else or release it into the public domain can change that.

I can understand why published authors might be queasy about fanfic, and I don't really judge anyone for disallowing it (practical issues with attempting to do so aside). But I don't think it's too much to ask them to base their positions on actual facts.

Edited to add a link to this beautiful defense of fic, a list of what fanfic is and is not that rings perfectly true to me. Strongly recommended.
owlmoose: (Default)

Dear Diana Gabaldon,

I wasn't going to weigh in on your screed against fanfic for a number of reasons, not least because a lot of people got there before me and did it better (in particular, I refer you here, here, and especially here), but on reflection, it turns out that I have something to say after all.

I'm a long-time fan of the Outlander series (especially of the first three books; and of the Lord John stories), but I've never written fic for them.

Or have I?

My first major story, the one I spent a year pouring my heart and soul into, is actually two parallel stories. One is set in the past and focuses on a man, a warrior, living his life and fighting for a cause he believes in; the other is set in the present, and the central character is the man's daughter, a young woman on a quest to learn about the father she never knew. Remind you of anything? It should; the structure of this story, including the ways in which I mixed first and limited-third person points of view, was heavily influenced by Dragonfly in Amber. I didn't fully realize the source of the inspiration until a friend pointed out, but on reflection it was rather obvious to me.

Does that make my story Outlander fanfiction? Not by any standard definition of the term, no. But is it a derivative work? Maybe so. At the very least, I think that argument could be fairly made.

So where does that fall? Am I "stealing", or am I pulling from a legitimate source of inspiration? Does it change things if the man was a character from a video game? On the other hand, his daughter was an original character (who shares very little with Brianna, beyond height and some of the circumstances of her birth), as were many of the other characters who populated the world of my story. Where do you draw the line between original and derivative, between inspiration and appropriation? Is it even possible to draw such a line, or is it a continuum, with different stories falling along different points on that line? Where do you put a story whose male lead was inspired by a character on Dr. Who, and that is populated by a cast of historical characters extrapolated far beyond what the canon tells us about them? Aren't those key aspects of a transformative work?

I don't pretend to have definitve answers to any of these questions, but I think they are well worth asking. One of the things I love most about fandom is that we consider creation to be part of a conversation. Opening myself to that conversation is one of the best things I ever did for myself as a writer, and I am proud to be a part of it.

Getting in on the recc'ing action for FFEX, in honor of signups being extended to TODAY! Haven't signed up yet? Go ye forth and join in!

FFX/FFX-2 fic:

On the Precipice of the World by [livejournal.com profile] cyrnelle: An excellent pilgrimage story, lovely all around but especially for the conversation with Father Zuke, a character we don't seen nearly enough of in fanfic.

Thinking-Not-Thinking by [livejournal.com profile] not_cynical: Aurikku, except not, and much more realistic to me for it. I love the interaction with Tidus at the beginning, and there is tasty meta as well. Yum, meta.

The Eternal and Perpetual Cycle of Becoming by [livejournal.com profile] bottle_of_shine: Speaking of tasty meta... there is lots of it here, along with some really awesome world building about Yevon, old and New. The pairing is Baralai/Isaaru, and it builds up from scratch in a very believable way.

To Know Foreverness by [livejournal.com profile] muggy_mountain: A sadly sweet Lulu/Wakka story that develops their relationship into what we see in X-2 and beyond.

FFXII fic:

Necrohol by [livejournal.com profile] alimond: Excellent Fran and Basch interaction; I really felt their voices in my head.

Sticky Sweet by [livejournal.com profile] lassarina: Balthier/Ashe and a stolen moment. One of my favorite pairings filled with the bittersweetness that I love about them.

So as often happens, I got to talking with people about fandom projects, and what all we'd like to see, and one idea that came up was the possibility of doing a Big Bang in Final Fantasy fandom.

What's a Big Bang? The short answer is: a fanwork challenge where authors write longer stories over a time period of a few months (most Big Bangs run 5-6 months, and goals are usually either 20,000 or 40,000 words), and artists collaborate with the authors to illustrate the stories, and everyone gets lots of shiny longfic to read and arts to admire. (The long answer is here.)

The discussion went on for awhile, and naturally the first logical step was a poll. To that end:

Here's a poll.

It's based in Google Docs, so you don't need to have an account on any particular service to fill it out. Curious who's responding and what they said? Check out the responses here. Leave your answers in the poll, then come back here to share your thoughts! (Anon and OpenID commenting are on.) And please feel free to send it on to your long-fic writing friends! The more, the merrier.
owlmoose: (Default)
The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble OR doodle you really, really don't want me attempting to draw of any pairing/gen friendship. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.* (Feel free to modify exactly what's being requested according to your skills.)

Except, since I already have an old request meme with slots still open, I'm going to point you over this-a-way instead of opening a new one. Hopefully this is not against the rules. ;)

You can comment here or there, but there is preferred since it'll be easier for me to keep track.

Hopefully also this will goad me into finishing the three prompts that are still open...

*Reposting is, as always, optional. As [livejournal.com profile] muggy_mountain points out, it's not like I'm going to check up on you!
