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.

* A purportedly "leaked" script for [[TransformersFilmSeries The Third Transformers Movie]] is pretty much a script fic, and a highly illogical one to boot (time travel and G1 altmodes are heavily involved, oy...)

* ''[[FanFic/{{LMS}} The Rock Raiders Meet BIONICLE]]'', based on ''Franchise/RockRaiders'', was written in script format, as was the standard for Website/{{BZPower}} comedies. Initially, the first two chapters of ''Rock Raiders - Legacy'' were also written in script, but after readers encouraged Primis to start writing in prose instead, all further chapters and installments of the saga were written in prose, and Primis was inspired to rewrite the first two chapters of ''Legacy'' in prose and start writing ''Two Worlds'', a ground-up rewrite of ''The Rock Raiders Meet BIONICLE'' in prose.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has [[http://vv8.jetc.org/vvs8/archive.html The Voyager Virtual Season Project]]. Dozens of new stories set after the televised finale. If you want the plot in smaller, less-accurate doses they're partnered with ''FiveMinuteVoyager'', so you can read the abridgements over on that site [[http://www.fiveminute.net/voyager/season.php?s=8 here]].

* Surprised this is still there, but this is Creator/AAPessimal's engaging script-fic based on ''Series/FatherTed''. If you're doing fan-fic episodes of TV series, how the Hell can you NOT do them in script form? This is BASIC!
