So sometimes you whine enough about how there should totally be a fic where Sheriffs Stilinski and Mars are so TOTALLY buddies and Stiles had a crush on Veronica forever and then your friend writes it for you.
OMFG. Despite all the Teen Wolf fic I’ve read for our contest, I don’t generally read TW fic. But Teen Wolf + Veronica Mars crossover fic? I immediately put life on hold to go read it.
It’s SO SO GOOD. Go put your life on hold and read it!
Starting doing things for people by doing this drabble for amypop. (It mentions Leslie’s hair! I’m sorry! But it comes out of the episode, I swear!)
Deleted/AU scene for 3x13, “The Fight”: Andy lets a vital piece of information slip
This makes my Andy-spilling-the-beans-to-Leslie heart so, so happy!
Title: Delicate Diplomatic Relations
Word Count: 1052
Summary: Just a little S4 snippet, post-“The Comeback Kid”
Notes: Despite being a flaily Parks fangurl, this is my first real P&R fic. Thanks to judygrimes, whatschutney and very-ish for the encouragement.
I don’t know if anyone has ever done this before but, here ya go… The Different Types of Fanfiction!
I probably left a few out, but these are the most common, compared to their base fiction’s canon plot. Enjoy! XD
Because, yes, I asked.
Damn you, Michael Schur!
We had no idea that within 10 days of announcing the contest that we’d have over 10,000 entries and trust us, we read them all. We have delved into AUs and inspired character backstories, hung with Mary Sues and yes, read a lot about a sourwolf and the people that love him.
Our Teen Wolf fans are brilliant, creative and just a little crazy (which is how we love you).
It was much harder to choose a winner than we expected. There have been many heated discussions filled with impassioned pleas by the judges for their favorite stories. And there’s been even more chest-clutching descriptions of scenes to one another, because sometimes we can’t even either. Really, you blew us away with your stories.
We’re very excited and happy to announce that the Teen Wolf Fan Fiction Contest winner is Rianna Elliott for “Side Effects” (we’ll publish it here soon for your reading pleasure). It’s an incredibly moving backstory for Stiles and his mom that is compelling, well-written, and we loved how it tied so beautifully into the last season of Teen Wolf.
We also want to award Honorable Mention to five stories that we absolutely loved. The authors will receive a special Teen Wolf prize package:
- Hitting the Motherlode
- Leave Your Window Open
- The Care and Feeding of Stiles Stilinski
- Werewolves of London (2012)
You say that like it’s a bad thing! :)
oh! it’s not! it was just funny to me because i read two “five-ish things” piece in a row that were incredibly fun and well-written and it made me so happy. and then i realized that both the fics AND the fanfic trope of the five-things make me happy and i get excited to either see a collection of snapshot moments in a character’s life.
oooh i love fics that are like, “five times [blank] and one time [the opposite happens]”
…that our brains might explode. However, we have SO many amazing entries that we are this proud of you, as a fandom:
Do you write fanfic? Do you want us to read it? Do you want to meet Jeff Davis and tell him what a gift he is? Reblog this, help us get the world out and get to writing!

“The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated. … The novel, of course, is an unequaled medium for the exploration of human social and emotional life. And there is evidence that just as the brain responds to depictions of smells and textures and movements as if they were the real thing, so it treats the interactions among fictional characters as something like real-life social encounters.”
“In two studies, published in 2006 and 2009… individuals who frequently read fiction seem to be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and see the world from their perspective.”
I’m totally skipping past the whole “novel” and “great literature” aspect and using this to explain why I *must* continue to read all of the fanfics I want — because my brain likes it AND it’s good for my brain. and of course, I must read ALL OF THE SMUT, because my brain likes it AND it’s good for my brain ;)
