When does a fanfic surpass the story it's based off?
« on: May 20, 2016, 02:32:38 am »
Does anyone here think fanfics might have the potential to surpass the original story? Has anyone ever seen a fabric that is better than the original story it's based off of?

Sorry! I was hearing a lot about a fabric about NGE fabric that I heard was better than the original, but I never read it.

Never.
"Read my fanfic!" pretty much tells me what level a "writer" is at. It hurts to even use the term "writer" when it comes to fanfic creation.

The fanfic I see are:
1. I want to wank to the characters in X, so I'm going to write bad **** about them!
2. I can't come up with a universe.. or characters.. but I think I can come up with a story if I steal someone else's universe/chars!
3. I wanted the episode/movie to go this way, so I'm going to write that!
4. I worship this so much, I need to write about it, so I can add myself as a character! I'm going to be so cool!
5. I'm going to combine 1 and 4!

Generally just about all of it is cringe worthy/sickening.
You just want to cry when you find they have been sending their "ideas" to the creator for some time... or even better when the fanfic writer says the creator should no longer be allowed to write about those characters because the fanfic writer's stuff is so much better.

If you are fresh to writing and cutting your teeth on fanfic as it allows you to work on just a part of writing, that is fine but you probably do not want to show your stuff to to many people and you most certainly want to get out of fanfic ASAP.
Honestly, I respect the **** writers the most when it comes to fanfic.

Oh I see. I was just playing devilds advocate and thought maybe there was a chance a fabric could have better writing then the original.

Looks like it censors the word p-o-r-n

When you see this this is generally paid writers that creators seek out and not fanfic.
Like how Star Trek has had people like Harlan Ellison write and episode.

Rarely do fan fits become better than the original story. It's subject to changes or wish fulfilment.

Is it possible? So far ghost in the shell: Stand alone Complex surpasses the original Manga and I dare say even the film adaptation. But the difference there is a huge team.

I believe if someone who is skilled, passionate, but also has a neutral team that knows how writing works, then I'm sure it's possible.

But I doubt anyone would ever dedicate that much time on make fan fiction. Fanfiction is the deviant art of writing.

I Don't differentiate pros with fans because some fans are pros and some pros aren't fans.

I guess it was a dumb question. But I was really curious if anyone remembered reading a fanfiction hat actually did surpass the original.

It doesn't have to be manga.

Everyone else does though.
A pro is a professional whether they love something or not they do a professional job.
A fan just loves something.

It is like suggesting there is no difference between football pros and football fans. Plenty of the pros love foot ball like the fans do.

My main point is this. A professional writer doesn't always write professionally. They can create their own indie projects and be a fan of it.

A fan is limited to being called fanfiction, but doesn't speak about how welll they wrote or how they handle the story.

Your analogy doesn't work for many reasons. Mostly because their profession is based mostly by their physical capacity. And their profession isn't a piece of work, it's a sport.

Well I guess my question is answered. I'm not really trying to make a huge thing out of it.

I loved all the Twilight fanfix better than Twilight itself. I'd compile them into a 25 Shades Of Edward, 25 Shades Of Jacob colection
