Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Fan Fic
Fanfiction.net, while being the largest fanfiction archive on the Internet, is often called The Pit for the sheer amount of badfic that visitors must wade through to find the 10% of stories that are worth dying for. This may be due to the fact that Fanfiction.net is the initial online publishing resource for newbie writers, whose writing is often considered amateurish due to their inexperience. For this reason more experienced fic writers often abandon Fanfiction.net as their primary publishing source for personal blogging sites like Livejournal, Dreamwidth, and the developing Archive of Our Own.
