The Fan Fiction Personality Test

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The True Fan

OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.

Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.


You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.


You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.

Um, yeah. Except for all the non canonical, sometimes weird, pairings I've written for Prison Break ;-)

I'm quite mono-fandom, though: I can watch a lot of stuff, but only one TV show (at a time) will make me gush fics. So I guess the part about loyalty is not entirely wrong.

I kinda wish I was mono-fandom, or at least stuck to a select few when it comes to fic. I think that's where the amazing stories stem from, people who know character in and out because they've been writing them for years.

My resolution this year is to not be so spastic, but I haven't had much luck at that yet unfortunately.

I wish I was a bit less mono-fandom. Grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it? ;)

who know character in and out because they've been writing them for years.

That is an upside. But I admire people who can "hop" between characters and get into different shows/movies/books/whatever enough to be able to write them. It demands... I'm not sure of the right word, agility? deftness?
I tend to be a bit obsessive when I like something so, in itself, I don't mind writing mainly in one fandom at a time. But when my affection fades, it's not easy to find another obsession show and I end up unable to write fanfic - but I've already ranted about that more than once.
