look up any word, like bae:
Fanfiction or fanfic is a story created by a fan who follows a book, movie, tv show, anime or other.

A fanfiction aims to continue a story that is unfinished or to set the caracters of a story in another plot. Mostly, tring to keep their personalities but sometimes they can be out of character (OOC) too.

An extremely creepy, and often perverted, form of writing, if it can be called that. Usually the author is a crazed Fangirl who either wants to add themselves into a story, or have a love life with a celebrity they otherwise have no chance with, or pair two people in a way that should honestly never come to mind. Fan Fiction is often badly written by illiterates, and usually features some, quite frankly, disturbing scenes. I advise anyone who still has their sanity, or something similar to it, to steer clear of fan fiction. It's traumatising, and truly, you'll never be the same again.
Some strange fangirl wrote a fan fiction call The Milk Fic. No one will ever recover from this.

a story written by a fan of something (ex: anime). there is a website called fanfiction.net that is deticated to fanfictions. but most of it is hetalia yaoi. you could also use deviantart but most of the stuff on there is emo sonic and hetalia fanfics where a mary-sue oc has sex with the writer's favorite character while another character that liked or was there best friend mopes around and ends up commiting suicide. but the oc doesn't give a shit. instead s/he possesses a magical power or something crazy like that. s/he saves the world, and then everyone worships him/her. THE END.
Regular Hetalia Fan: Screw that!

Fanfiction is, quite frankly, fiction written by fans, which either PORTRAYS:</p>

<p>1) <b>CHARACTERS</b> in a different light (often the way the fanfiction-author believes him/her to be like). More than half of the time, a fanfiction-author will most likely use only the obvious traits that these characters display, and sometimes, monopolize these traits in a way that a few consider to be out of proportion.</p>

<p>2) <b>SITUATIONS</B> the fanfiction-author had not seen and, possibly, will not see within the original, published work. These situations can take place within the original work's time frame, environment, etc, or they can take place in an alternate time and/or environment, which then makes the fanfiction AU (Alternate Universe).</p>

<p>3) RELATIONSHIPS which might or might not stay true to the original, published work. More than half of the time, characters might be out of character due to the aforementioned (1&2), but occasionally, an author will stay true to a character's personality as they match them up with another character. </p>
<p>Example (1 -CHARACTERS):<br>
a) "pretty boys" can be feminine physically, mentally, and/or emotionally - even if their original character might not be (<i>Youko Kurama/Minamino Shuuichi</i> - needy, weepy, easily hurt - from Yoshihiro Togashi's <u>Yuu Yuu Hakusho</u>)<br>

<br>the personality traits and quirks of a character hinted in original work is then be written out fully by the fanfiction-author, as a means to get a better understanding of the character, or show this possible side of a character to others (<i>Kuwabara Kazuma</i> - kindhearted, brave, lives with older sister, perhaps without parents, gangs - from Yoshihiro Togashi's <u>Yuu Yuu Hakusho</u>)

<p>Examples (2 -SITUATIONS):
<br>characters that had died in the original work will be brought back to life, either with or without a reasonable explanation as to how their death might not have been real ... or how they were saved by whatever means were necessary (<i>Sirius Black</i> from J.K.Rowling's <u>Harry Potter series</u>)</p>

<br>characters of one published, original work is thrown into the universe of another published, original work; these fanfictions are called crossovers (Yoshihiro Togashi's <u>Yuu Yuu Hakusho</u> and J.K.Rowling's <u>Harry Potter</u> series)</P>

<p>Examples (3 -RELATIONSHIPS)
<br>two characters who, in the published, original work, did not have a strong relationship would, in the fanfiction, be involved either romantically (<i>Draco Malfoy</i> and <i>Harry Potter</i> from J.K.Rowling's <u>Harry Potter</u> series) or non-romantically (<i>Harry Potter</i> and/or <i>James</i> and <i>Lily Potter</i> from J.K.Rowling's <u>Harry Potter</u> series)</p>
