Fan Fiction Basics: Learning to be a Writer
An excerpt from my up-coming site, perFiction.
Of all the many art forms that exist, few have the ability to engage an audience the way writing can. Words are their own kind of magic, able to ensnare the senses and tempt even the most undecided reader into leaving behind their worries to explore a new, uncharted realm. From the very moment you decide that you want to write, you're choosing to become part of an amazing world full of excitement, adventure, and magic that will let you enchant your audience.
But deciding to write is only the first part of the journey. Since you're browsing this website, it's probably safe to assume that you are an author. Maybe you haven't published your first story yet, or maybe you're getting ready to release your 112th. Regardless of where you are in your career as a writer, this is as good a time as any to realize that there's something you need to learn before you can take a single step forward from where you are. What you need to learn is simp

Underbelly Tycoon (Tips to get the rat mount)Blizzard made a sneak hotfix yesterday that made it no longer possible to get sightless eyes from killing players while in a raid group, just solo or 5-man.
Well, since when have I ever heard the word “can’t” and let it faze me?
Despite starting the day with 2k eyes on my looted count, I finished this achievement in a couple of raid groups. The first one wasn’t bad, but it disbanded after figuring it wasn’t worth continuing without being able to get the eyes from killing players, too.
The second group I started myself and maintained to my utmost.
It’s funny, but I really had to step into the “tycoon” shoes and lead, with patience and positivity, keep up the humor and morale. And it paid off, because I ended up retaining about a dozen or so core people despite the drifters in the finder.
MILLIONS of thanks to:
And many more, you were PHENOMENAL people!
Tags are the new KeywordsKeywords on deviations were built to be an important tool to help discover artwork. But as deviantART grows and strives to create new ways to discover great content, we’ve found that keywords as we currently use them have become underutilized. We think we can do better -- and can make a better experience for the community -- by making some changes.
In the coming month, keywords will transition into tags, and we’ll be improving the way they work. Tags will better surface artwork, allow deviants to form communities around topics, make it easier to find other artists and art appreciators, and increase discoverability.
For example, if you're a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it can be difficult to know what to search for: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Turtles, TMNT, Donatello, etc. Public tags provide visibility to see how others are tagging their deviations, which will allow you to align your behavior to the norm, or ch

How to Create an Original Character!Fan Fiction Week
Miko Uchiha. Like Sasuke without his emotional drama? And Sakura without being so cold to Naruto? And Hinata if she was brave? And on Team 7 with the main three? And as Naruto's Future girlfriend/wife? And if Orochimaru wanted her instead of Sasuke? This is an Original Character in the works!
Yeah... She's "Original" alright... She's not very compelling... or dynamic... or necessary
But she's "Original" and that's all that matters, right?
Hello, everyone; Jakers here with my second guide to making your own character for fan fiction. With this, I aim to give you the tools and the insight into making a new character for a pre-existing property.
In case you're re-reading or just looking for a certain kind of advice, here's a little outline you. I'll will put a large header at the start of each section, and each section will be in this order.

The Ethics of FanfictionFanfiction Week
Whenever fanfiction is discussed, someone will inevitably bring up the discussion of whether or not fanfiction is "ethical" or "moral". For whatever reason, certain ideas and points within the fanfiction community always seem to led to enthuasic and at times heated debate.
Now, this article is not here to judge, nor to say either side of the argument is right or wrong, but rather to provide a point for thoughtful discussion and reflection.
Keeping that in mind, let's look at three major issues in regards to the ethics of fanfiction: Copyright and Legality, RPF, and turning fanfictions into "original" stories.
Copyright, or the Legality of Fanfiction
One of the huge issues that pops up time and time again when discussing fanfiction is the legality of it, and the Copyright. Is it really ethical to create something out of a world and characters that someone else spent so long creating?
Under Copyright law, the creator of a work of fiction gets sole ri
