Film Fic

A Film Fic is a Fan Fic which is the plot of a film — usually romantic in nature — adapted to star the characters of another fandom. It sounds like a cheat, but it's surprisingly difficult to remain faithful to both the film and the characters, especially in Slash Fic. The worst of these end up as copyright infringing transcripts of the target movie with the names changed. The most common victims are Disney movies, although Dreamworks, Pixar and sometimes Studio Ghibli are also popular. Even well-written examples of this genre have the unfortunate risk of being removed from Fan Fiction Dot Net for copyright infringement, but other fan fiction sites may still host them.
