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>

A story about an already published work. Some are good, most are bad. See FanFiction.Net . In fanfiction...anything can happen, which is sometimes good, but mostly bad. -___-*
I had to sort through, like, fifty fan fics to find find some decent yaoi!

A very useful tool to make characters from TV shows, anime and video games gay.
Just recently, I made an Avatar fan fiction in which Fire Lord Ozai molests his son Zuko...then I made King of the Hill fan fiction that is involves Hank Hill and Khan Souphinosaphone engaging in a homosexual affair.

A piece of 'literature' written by a fan of a tv show, movie, series, anime, etc centered around the same or some of the same characters and possibly a similar plot. Fan fictions usually contain characters acting in a manner that they would never act like, dating people they would never date (including people not of their gender preference), getting with people that they would never get with, and so on. Many are never finished, are never editted, and are not worth reading. In sites such as fanfiction.net they are likely to contain yaio.
"(reads) ...And so Itachi pressed Naruto... (wait is this fan fiction rated R? -goes to read another-) ...Kiari commed her haire in perfekt emostile..."

a story based on real people with a fake story line written by extreme super fans of whatever the story is about, usually about celebrities and is often EXTREMELY CREEPY.

Fan fiction: throwing originality and copyright laws out the window to give those who can't think of their own ideas a sense of satisfaction.
Fan fiction writer: Oh my gosh, I totally just wrote an awesome Twilight fan fiction and Bella and Jasper totally made out!!!!!1!!

Real writer: Oh, that's interesting. I just wrote a well-developed original plot line that actually makes sense and isn't based off of somebody else's idea.
