Said of a FanFic that attempts to [[{{Pastiche}} emulate the tone, atmosphere and style of its inspiration as closely as possible]]. The goal of the Original Flavour fic is to seem as though the original production team could have thought it up. Even if it heads off into previously unknown and unexplored territory for that property, the story will emphasize the use of ''existing'' gimmicks and devices rather than introducing totally foreign ones.

If you are writing an Original Flavour fic, you (usually) don't introduce or kill core characters, revise continuity, or do anything that is non-canon beyond the events of your story. To an extent, it is possible to pull off and still maintain this trope, but only if it's in a way that the canon itself could have evolved (as opposed to anything drastic). Original Flavor is exactly like writing a spec script you could submit to the showrunner, but not necessarily in script form.

Note that some fandoms, especially those with looser story arcs, are easier to write in Original Flavour than others. It's also more popular for works with a distinctive style of writing and/or dialogue, as this is a particularly easy element to imitate. If the original work was CutShort, anyone would be glad to read how the rest of the series could have played out if a fanfiction continuation assumes this trope.

Original Flavour has been the direct polar opposite of most other FanFic types at one time or another. Because of the widespread prevalence of labyrinthine FixFic, our old friend MarySue, and florid {{Shipping}}, Original Flavor can be ''incredibly'' rare. Fun is also found in a self-imposed challenge to see how far a writer can go out of the lines [[ArmedWithCanon without technically deviating from "canon"]], without becoming an overt {{Elseworld}}.

For when this treatment is done for individual characters rather than entire stories, see SailorEarth. For fanfics that [[ExaggeratedTrope take this up a notch]], see ScriptFic. Frequently overlaps with PseudocanonicalFic. Cousin trope of SpiritualLicensee, in which a brand new work or franchise attempts to emulate an existing one, due to appreciation for what the latter was as a whole, and could be considered a symbolic installment for that franchise.


[[AC:Based on Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/DeathNote'' has [[ If It's Not Me, It's You]], a GenFic that has been praised for it's very canon-like plot, mind games and excellent, IC characterization.
* In Manga-ish form, the french comic, ''[[ Magical Fami]]'' fanfic of Anime/OjamajoDoremi, by Alexandre [=JBOMagical=] follows the exact same formula as the original counterpart. It is to a point that it has enough material and is so close to the original it could be adapted into a ~26 episode sequel of the original and most wouldn't notice.
* Rob "Kenko" Haynie's ''[[Fanfic/GirlDays Girl]] [[ Days]]'' is an excellent Original Flavour ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fic.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Manga/ReTake'' has the same sort of occasionally MindScrew-ey plot as the original ''Evangelion'', the art is as good or BETTER than the canon source, the characters are all perfect, and the [[spoiler:eventually happy]] ending is completely believable, taking into account the characters and the situation. Asuka fans consider it to be the true continuation and ending of ''End of Evangelion'', while others feel conflicted about the plot direction it takes, particularly some very graphic sex scenes (in the unedited version) and plot details towards the ending. Original Flavour [[TropesAreNotGood may not always be a good thing]], especially when it's based on an already divisive series.
** ''[[ Evangelion Genocide: Extended]]'', while not a {{Doujinshi}} like ''ReTake'', is also an alternate universe fic which shows an impressive attention to detail on the part of the author.
* ''[[ The White Dog]]'' for an ''Manga/InuYasha'' Original Flavour fic.
* [[ Talya Firedancer's]] ''{{Manga/Gravitation}}'' fanfics were explicitly written to read like a typical script taken from the anime.
* Online FanFic pioneer Ryan Mathews once participated in a hoax wherein an unfinished ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' fanfiction was released on Usenet as the purported "transcript" of a lost [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]]. Apparently, it was Original Flavour enough for those who read it -- the record shows some of the readers engaged in several weeks of frantic research.
* The ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' fanfic entitled ''[[ The Love Affair of Nagato Yuki]]'' (whose [[NonIndicativeName title]] doesn't prepare you for [[DidntSeeThatComing the various surprises inside]]--well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin except]] [[FanPreferredCouple one]]), received various praises comparing it with both the series and the novels.
* ''[[ Neko Love Hina]]'' is a take on the ''Manga/LoveHina'' franchise by Kytranis that aims for humor with every chapter.
* ''Webcomic/DragonBallMultiverse'' is a webcomic with an art style in the tournament chapters very similar to official art from ''DragonBall'', Akira Toriyama. However, later chapters have been drawn by several different artist, each putting their own spin on certain facial expressions.
* The ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fic ''An Incident and Jerusalem/Increments of Jerusalem'' play out (for the most part) like a classic Franchise/SherlockHolmes story, going so far as to capture Sir Arthur C. Doyle's narrative style. This stays consistent all throughout, even as [[spoiler:Arthur casually outwits Holmes.]]
* ''[[ This Pendent Heart]]'' is a ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' fanfic stunningly similar to the tone of the original show, even despite being overtly [[{{Shipping}} shippy]] at times (it helps that the anime is, after all, a {{shojo}} work). It also ties together and expands on a few plot threads, while continuing to develop the characters.
* The ''FanFic/ElementalChessTrilogy'', a series of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' fanfics, was intended to be this. It apparently succeeded, since a few reviewers questioned whether the author was really Hiromu Arakawa writing under a fake name.
* ''[[ Spreading Their Wings]]'' and ''[[ Another New World]]'' are two ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' fanfics that follow the style and canon of the series.
* ''[[ Mado Of Stone Mill]]'' is a great ''Anime/HaibaneRenmei'' original flavour that takes place a little after the events of the anime.
* ''Fanfic/OfScienceAndMagics'' is one for the ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' franchise, with Touma becoming childhood friends with Mikoto.
* ''[[ Meet Nadeshiko]]'', a ''Manga/ShugoChara'' fanfic. It starts out as a generic rimahiko fanfic, but as the story progresses, it becomes a great sequel to the series.
* [[ bebop-aria's]] [[ ''Left Eye'']] is a brilliant ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' fic assembled from still photos in the anime series. It is a mature, detailed outline of Spike, Vicious, and Julia's lives pre-Bebop that ties together some of the series' unresolved plot points, and provides a deeper look into the trio's characters.
* [[ A Cluster of Stars]]. Especially recommended for people who want more of what ''Manga/LuckyStar'' itself could have offered.
* [[ Unlucky Black Holes]], about what kinds of Witches the ''Manga/LuckyStar'' girls would become if they were fallen Magical Girls in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Despite being not only a crossover, but only one by borrowing the ''concept'' of witches from Madoka-verse, it does a fine job capturing the essence of witches. One reviewer even commented that it would be interesting to see everything described in each Witch's profile in the spinoff game ''Grief Syndrome''.
* [[ Warrior's Secret]] reads like a [[DarkFic somewhat darker]], but still true-to-canon continuation of the Anime/{{Kirby|Right Back At Ya}} anime. Unsurprising, because the author was also the main translator for the anime's fansub, and thus knows the canon quite well.
* This is one of the main goals of ''FanFic/KirbyoftheStarsTheAfterStory'' for the Franchise/{{Kirby}} series. Since this story is a [[PatchworkFic crossover of the games and the anime]], both the anime and the game canons are taken into account, and the chapters read very much like anime episodes (albeit with more lengthy story arcs in mind as opposed to being episodic).
* Despite being a case of Rule34, one particular ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' H-doujin kept all the hallmarks of the series without a break in character. It's even done in a TwoShorts format like earlier seasons of the anime; the iconic shot of the Odd Jobs building is used as a faux-SexyDiscretionShot while Gintoki and Kagura yell dirty phrases to get the reader away, Shinpachi chastises the pair for making the audience read that, and the pair do a small spiel on how the words matter more than the actions as a coverup for being lazy. The second part involves a wave of "dick slasher" cases in Kabuki-cho, to which Gintoki and Shinpachi turn to Kyuubei to protect them from the perp.

[[AC: Based on Newspaper Comics]]
* Lord Amadeus's ''[[ A Calvin for All Seasons]]'' manages to convey the heart of ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes' friendship.

[[AC: Based on Comic Books]]

[[AC: Based on Films]]
* ''Revenge of the Old Queen'' is a cleverly written fanfic for the ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''.
* ''WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs''. Barring the {{Mythology Gag}}s, everything is as Original Flavor to Film/TheDarkKnightSaga as can be. This is multiplied to the nth degree considering the Joker's characterization, and his performance is so good that a lot of commenters jokingly(?) think that Creator/HeathLedger has come back from the dead.

[[AC:Based on Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' [[FanficRecs/{{Firefly}} fanfic writers]] seem to be obsessed with fulfilling this trope, a possible side effect of ''Firefly'' [[ScrewedByTheNetwork never getting enough of its own "Original Flavor" in the first place]].
** ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' captures the characters and the setting so well that many reviewers consider it as good as (or ''better'' than) an official {{Continuation}} of the series.
* Todd Smitts' ''Series/ColdCase'' [[ fanfics,]] written as conventional episodes of the series down to the use of music of the period in the flashbacks.
** Smitts and others also began to write a fictional [[{{Continuation}} 8th season]] after the series was cancelled, picking some of the lines left loose at the end and even proposing actors for the new roles. [[ You can read it here.]]
* The Fanfic/ColinMallorySeries of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' fanfics. Although it takes place in the fifth season, the plot of the fanfics are similar to the plot of the first season episodes.
* ''Fanfic/PowerRangersOceania'' is a ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' fanfic which emulates the typical format of a ''Power Rangers'' episode.

[[AC:Radio Drama]]
* [[ San Tropez]] by [[ Breakinglight11]] is a ''Radio/{{Cabin Pressure}}'' fan fic designed to be like just another episode of the series. Not only does it fit in with the continuity, the voices of the characters and the style of humor are a very close imitation of how original author John Finnemore writes them. San Tropez is even written in audio drama script format.

[[AC:Based on Literature]]
* ''[[ Not He Who Tells,]]'' an original short story written in the style of Creator/StephenKing. The author is G. Norman Lippert, who has also written a ''Literature/HarryPotter'' continuation series.
* Rich Drushel added to ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'' parodies of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'''s [[ Appendix A]] and [[ Scouring of the Shire]]. The latter is intended to be fitted into the text between the final two chapters.
* ''[[ Emperor's Ward: A Ciaphas Cain Story]]'' captures the style of the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' yarns nigh-perfectly.
* Though it starts out roughly, ''[[ The Clone Wars: Commando's Dirge]]'' winds up having several readers proclaiming it not only tastes just like Karen Traviss' Literature/RepublicCommandoSeries (without all the Jedi-bashing, too), it seamlessly brushes against a chapter of ''Triple Zero'', without changing the scene at all.
* Astrokath has a particularly good take on the events shortly after ''[[Literature/DragonridersOfPern Dragonsdawn]]'' in [[ Dragon Days.]]
* In which [[Franchise/{{Dune}} Frank Herbert's ellipses]] are severely abused: ''[[ Good Surprises.]]''
* ''FanFic/TheOllivanderChildren'' attempts to write in the style of the later ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, or that failing, some of the best fanfiction - such as seen [[ Harry Potter and the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus]] and ''[[ Interwoven.]]''
* ''Fanfic/TheNorthRemembers'' for ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', so much that many of the reviewers were claiming that the author Silverblood was Creator/GeorgeRRMartin himself.
* '''[[ A.A. Pessimal]]'s''' work in the ''Franchise/{{Discworld}}'' and ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fanfic universes is essentially Original Flavour fan fiction. Even when introducing and elaborating on concepts which have not yet appeared in the canon, Pessimal is at pains to explain they are firmly rooted there and will show his working. For instance, "Rimwards Howondaland" - a Discworld expy of [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra South Africa]] - is kind of there in the canon, as he collated eight or nine clear hints in the published books that point to its existence. Terry Pratchett just hasn't developed it past those few hints and throwaway jokes. Noting, not unreasonably, that originally the Discworld Australia was no more than three or four throwaway gags which paved the way for its later introduction, [[Creator/AAPessimal Pessimal]] felt at liberty to introduce Southern Africa to the Discworld. The author also focuses on bit-part players and incidental characters in the canon, some of whom have not even had one line yet, as so much more can be creatively done with them.
* Averted with the [[Literature/TheScrewtapeLetters Screwtape Letters]] fanfic ''Screwtape's New Secretary'' (which is RuleThirtyFour and therefore NSFW), but a [[ review]] of the fic fits the trope.
-->My dear Snaremouth,\\
When that fool Blargrot allowed [[Creator/CSLewis his patient]] to get his hands on thirty-one of the letters I had written to the idiot Wormwood, it was [[OhCrap a serious intelligence fiasco]]. Imagine my elation, then, to learn that you got your own patient to write porn of it. It is a clear sign that your patient has [[CompletelyMissingThePoint completely missed the point]].\\
That said, did you really need to include ME in it?\\
Your affectionate mentor,\\

[[AC: Based on Video Games]]
* The ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' sprite comic ''Webcomic/KristophGavinAceAttorney'' does a very good job of emulating the original's style.
** So does ''VideoGame/ApolloJusticeAceAttorneyCase5TurnaboutSubstitution''.
** Often cited as one of the main sources of appeal of ''FanFic/ACompleteTurnabout,'' ''despite'' it being a AlternateUniverseFic.
** ''[[ Phoenix Wright: Adept Attorney,]]'' imagining the first game with Phoenix mentored by Redd White and partnered with April May.
** ''[[ Turnabout Lockdown]]'', which reads like an actual case taking place after the events of Apollo Justice and brings together characters from both the PW generation and the AJ generation.
* The longer the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' [[GameMod romhacking]] scene sticks around, the more its participants rely on different graphics, new music, and unusual game mechanics in order to make their creations stand out from the pack. [[ Return to Dinosaur Land]], on the other hand, is a hack consisting almost entirely of levels that could have been in the original game. These sort of hacks are usually referred to as "vanilla" hacks by other members of the scene.
* The [[ Oswald Adventures]] are direct spiritual successors to the ''Franchise/EpicMickey'' series.
* Screennameless's ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' fanfic ''[[ Reconnoiter]]'' is praised for its borderline obsessive maintenance of the canon character's personalities even as new characters are introduced.
* The whole purpose of the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' [[GameMod Level Editor]] project ''Back to Basics 2009'' -- all levels must be built with only the resources given when the editor was released to the public nine years ago.
* ''Webcomic/SilentHillPromise'' attempts to faithfully create a full ''Franchise/SilentHill'' game as an [[InteractiveFiction interactive]] web comic.
* Neutronium Dragon's ''Sojourn'' would make a dark (and relatively short) installment of ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'', but as a story, it would fit right in -- out-of-left-field goofy moments included.
* ''[[FanFic/TilTheSunGrowsCold Til the Sun Grows Cold and the Stars Grow Old]]'' is written with this trope in mind; it was intended to be so close to canon that it could be read almost as a novelization of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
* ''[[FanFic/TheJoyOfBattle The Joy of Battle: Historical Espionage Action]]'' is a ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'' fanfic that presents the adventures of the Cobra Unit in a similar style to a ''Franchise/MetalGear'' game. The story does not change any of the existing canon and includes the [[OncePerEpisode Once Per Game]] torture scene as well as a prison escape, dramatic "ultimate weapon" reveal, and quirky villains. The main break from the style of the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' games is a [[AnachronicOrder non-linear]] plot.
* ''FanFic/BetweenMinds'' by 3theCaptain is one for the ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' and ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' universe. "If all goes according to plan, this story will not interfere at all with the canon material."
* ''Franchise/Pokemon'':
** [[ Edan R.]] wrote a series known as ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon: [[Fanfic/PokemonMysteryDungeonLegendaryAndAncientDiscoveries Legendary & Ancient Discoveries]]''.
** While a number of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' hacks shoot for ambitious story telling, changes to the overall badge collecting formula, or otherwise veer off the main series's very narrow design concept, the ''Emerald'' and ''[=FireRed=]'' hacks ''Altair'', ''Sirius'', and ''Vega'' are designed to mirror the main games in every way, from the stat spreads of their new Pokémon down to the style of music, trainers, and towns. About the only thing that's out of place from the typical games is the last of the three hack's extreme difficulty, and their choice of an eighth Gym Leader.
** The main draw of ''Fanfic/PokemonStorySinnohJourney''. It reads like an actual Pokemon Contest episode from start to finish. [[spoiler: The extra chapters deviate from canon when Tobias and Darkrai are AdaptedOut, but even then, it still reads a like logical, unofficial conclusion to Ash's Sinnoh conference without them]].
*** The sequel, ''Fanfic/PokemonNovaAndAntica'', continues the trend to an impressive degree. It's your standard travel-to-a-new-region story following Ash as the protagonist, but with many twists, alongside an overarching MythArc, that lives up to its aim of combining the new with the old. The Tenla Region and its Pokemon sound like stuff from game series.
* ''FanFic/TalesFromTamriel'' does this with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.
* There's a short one for ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'': ''[[ Whenever You're Ready]]'' by Tropers/InfinityOrNone. Despite being about the OfficialCouple having their first night of marital bliss, it manages to be rated T.
* ''Fanfic/HitmanMiami'' is an unusual example, as it is a text fanfiction of a video game and attemps to convey the feeling of actually playing a ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' game. It is written like a {{walkthrough}}, with each chapter being a different mission, the plot being advanced in "cutscenes".
* ''Fanfic/NightOfTheVentATaleOfWeirdness'' does its best to capture some of the fear and paranoia of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3''. However, in this case the guard didn't realize there wasn't very much to be upset about in this situation.
* ''Fanfic/{{Interstitium}}'' is filled with scenes that easily fit within ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', and the flashbacks and CharacterFocus just as easily fit in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' setting as a whole.
* Many of the {{Game Mod}}s for the original 1993 ''Videogame/{{Doom}}'' are "episode replacements", level packs which emulate the look and feel of one of the original game's episodes.
** Of special note are [[ Doom the way id Did]] and its sequel [[ Doom 2 The Way id Did]], where the mappers took great pains to emulate the styles of specific Creator/IdSoftware staff.
* ''VideoGame/Mother4'' is a purely fan-made game, intended to capture and emulate the style and themes of the [[{{Mother}} Mother trilogy]] and feel like a true, official sequel. The game is still in development, however, so only time will tell if it lives up to the name.
* Some ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fanfics fall into this:
** ''FanFic/TouhouTonari'': Does this in the attempt to shed some light on Yuyukos backstory.
** The same applies to ''Though the Wind Cries'' but focusing on Suwako, Kanako and Sanae.
** ''WebAnimation/DiamondInTheRoughTouhou'' provides an absolute {{Deconstruction}} of the Gappy Stu archetype simply by using nothing else than Touhou canon.
* [[ This original soundtrack]] is designed to capture the essence of the UsefulNotes/{{MSX}} ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' games' soundtracks.
* ''Webcomic/MarioAndLuigiCleanupCrew'': The artist has claimed that the comic is actually his concept of a game for the ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' series.

[[AC:Based on Webcomics/Web Original]]
* There are ''many, many'' ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''-derivative fanworks. However, probably the most Original Flavor of them all is ''[[ Housetrapped]]'', which carefully copies the art style of the original with different characters, and which is being used as the basis for a fan-game.
* ''Webcomic/SecretAgentMen'' strives for this in its approach to the series that inspired it, ''Webcomic/{{Niels}}''.

[[AC:Based on Western Animation]]
* In ''Fanfic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', a ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' crossover, and a part of the collection of fics referred to as ''Fanfic/ProjectDarkJade'', it has been commented that both Jade and the TT characters are kept very much in character.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has ''[[ Lost in Translation]]'', which makes up a fairly realistic origin myth that all the four nations would know... and then [[DerailedFairyTale creates a new version]] for the fire nation under Fire Lord Ozai's rule.
* Some of the later works of [[ JBERGES]] in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' FanFic community read exactly like a {{canon}} episode, only with the [[AuthorAppeal science and math gags]] turned up to 11. ''[[ Of Mice and Mensans]]'' is probably the best-written example, despite being ScriptFic.
* Though she dislikes being recognized for only this, The Creator/IllustriousCrackpot did one of the best ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' fanfics in the entire fandom: ''[[ The Great Danville Cold Wars]]''.
* ''FanFic/TheStepbrotherSitch'' and all its follow-up stories are as close to ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' as possible, with plenty of LampshadeHanging, {{Continuity Nod}}s (possibly bordering on ContinuityPorn at times), and some thoughts on various pieces of CanonFodder.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fics tend to try to follow series formula:
** WordOfGod says one of the main goals with ''FanFic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'' is to emulate ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. They've stated that the events of the real episodes take place before, after, or, if at all possible, during the events of the fic.
** ''Blog/TwilightUnbound'' is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' Original Flavor ''blog.'' Despite the storyline taken from ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' and characters have a tendency to [[NoFourthWall break the fourth wall while answering questions]], it stays true to the show's world and the characters that live in it.
** ''Fanfic/ADoorJam'' can be feel like an actual episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' due to its plot, pacing, and length.
** ''Fanfic/AhAintGotNoAckcent'' is another [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic FiM]] fanfic that could pass for an episode.
* Most ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' fanfics try for something close to this, but remove the 80s cartoon [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar radar system]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' [[ Hero]] [[ High]] [[ Series]] pretty much reflects the first episode but then goes off in an entirely new story line with strong character development and stories.
* Fanfic/EzraLost, a WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels fanfiction. It doesn't hug to canon completely, as it was in the progress of being written before the second season began to air, but the alternate things that occur rather than canon are relatively reasonable.
* Although some could be interpreted as FixFic, [[ this author]] tends to get the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' formula down pat.
* Many feel that the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' series ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries'' fits the tone so good that they feel it's an unofficial fourth season.
* The ''Fanfic/MegsFamilySeries'' reads a lot like actual ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episodes, minus the [[ButtMonkey Meg bashing]].
* ''Fanfic/YoungJusticeDarknessFalls''. This is a tricky example, as it breaks so many rules of original flavor what with introducing new characters, tricked out plot twists that upends parts of [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice Young Justice's]] premise and shifting character focuses. And YET, so many of the readers say that what was created would serve as a suitable conclusion to Greg Weisman's vision for the show with villain intrigue, tapping into the deeper DC universe, revised character origins and the same kind of espionage and tricks as the show but in different ways.
* Unlike many ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' fanfics which like to ramp up the drama, ''Fanfic/TheMoreThingsChangeSeries'' has the feel of the actual series, with each story being like an actual episode.
** From the same author, ''Fanfic/FacingTheFutureSeries'' for ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.

[[AC:Based on Multiple Properties]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', despite being a MegaCrossover is particularly noted for keeping many of the various characters very much in character (so long, that is, as their backgrounds remain broadly the same. Outside of canon ''Harry Potter'' and ''Avengers'' characters, there are few that haven't had a little spin put on them) while those chapters from the point of view [[FirstPersonSmartass Harry]] [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Dresden]] are regarded as being downright uncanny in their mimicking of [[Creator/JimButcher the original author's]] SignatureStyle.
* [[ This author]] seems to have a taste for Original Flavour. Besides for a few quirks, most of the stories are obvious (but apparently highly effective) attempts at writing actual episodes.
* ''FanFic/TheManWithNoName'' somehow manages to be Original Flavor to both ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' and ''Series/DoctorWho'', despite the two series having widely varying tones (though granted, ''Doctor Who'' itself has widely varied its tone over [[LongRunners the decades]]).
