* A large proportion of Japanese fanfics are posted on message boards, particularly 2ch. The strict post character limits on these boards have spawned a distinctive form of the Script Fic, where virtually the entire fic is written as exchanges of (labelled) dialogue and sound effects, often signified by the title itself being a line of dialogue. This extends to original fiction as well; in particular, ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha'' originated as a story on 2ch in this style, and when it was converted into published form all the resulting quirks were carried over.

Naturally, writing a FanFic in the form of a script. Originated as a way of giving a sense of illusionary "officialness" to a fic for a TV series or movie (Look! It can be filmed as-is!), which makes the format particularly popular for [[{{Continuation}} continuation fics]], and/or to use narrative tricks that wouldn't sound right in prose. It also functions as a prime outlet for writers unskilled at detailed description, and who despise WallOfText, but talented with dialogue. Most {{MST}}ings are written in this format as well.
