A work that [[ShapedLikeItself originated on the web]].

Subsets include WebAnimation, WebComics, WebGames, {{Web Serial Novel}}s, {{Podcast}}s, and VlogSeries. TheAbridgedSeries, {{Lets Play}}s, and {{After Action Report}}s also tend to be Web Originals. Most FanFic also originates on the web, but some readers may reckon fan fic as a category apart from web original. Other genres include LivejournalRoleplay and PlayByPostGames.

It is common for Web Original works, especially {{Web Serial Novel}}s, to spawn {{Shared Universe}}s as other would-be writers think the original work is pretty neat and contact the writer for permission to play in his/her sandbox.

There is a [[FanficRecs/WebOriginal Web Original Recs]] page. See also NewMediaTropes.
