Fanfiction Writers Share Their Most Embarrassing Teenage Era Stories

Fanfiction has become quite popular over the last several decades. Some of the world's most famous epic sagas bore roots from fanfiction. Did y'all know '50 Shades of Grey' is thanks to 'Twilight?' True story! You have to wonder how the minds of the the authors of this particular niche work? How do they find their inspiration? What life experiences compelled them to write this way? Their lives have to be interesting...

Redditor _ToroZuzuX asked the literaty of the world... People who wrote fanfiction between the ages of 12 and 16, what's the funniest thing you wrote completely seriously? **_This has to be good! **

COLD TO THE TOUCH...

Oh jeez, I wrote a Danny Phantom fanfiction and put myself in the story where we fell in love. I attempted to write about a passionate kissing scene. Me, a 12 year old girl who had never kissed a real boy before, tried to imagine what kissing a fricking ghost would be like. I think my words were something like _"His cold, dead lips felt like ice against mine. It's a good thing I like ice." _I stopped writing the story and later deleted it after realizing just how cringey it was, but at the time, I thought it was a masterpiece.

OH DRACO!

Once I wrote a super dramatic fanfic about an OC kissing Draco Malfoy. I was so proud of it that I made my dad read it.

LEGOLAAASSSS!!!!

I wrote myself into "Lord of The Rings" as not even a Mary Sue but just as me. I married Legolas. The best part is definitely that this was in the 90's so it was even before the movies were made.

THEY'RE LIKE FAMILY!

I've been trying to repress this memory for almost a decade.

I started a self-insert fanfic where the character based on myself created a portal to the "anime world" so I could insert myself into the lives of my favorite characters. Thankfully I never finished it.

SNOW WHITE WAR Z....

It's thankfully lost to time by now, but somewhere around the early 2000's I was deep into zombie-related fanfic and I was working on a story about a zombie outbreak at Disney World.

The first action set piece, before any zombies ever showed up, was a street fight between the response team and a group of costumed Disney mascots.

The line _"Heigh-ho, motherFERS!" _was used, followed by one of the Seven Dwarves getting curb stomped.

I never actually got to the zombies. I burned out all my energy trying to make the mascot street fight work.

OH MY SHREK!

I was on a really long bus ride once and I wrote up a Shrek fan fiction in like four hours. Nothing shrexual, what I remember was Shrek and Donkey being combined into one larger being, which I had other characters refer to as "Shronkey." Shronkey then set out to stop a necromancer from raising a dead army to life.

POKEMON AS INSPIRATION? HMMM...

I tried to submit a fanfic on a Pokemon website but they would only accept a fic with a minimum word count of about 3000 words. My fic was just supposed to be about Ash going to the supermarket with Mr. Mime. I had no idea how else to lengthen the fic so I just made Ash bump into a wall, get a head injury and speak gibberish for 2500 words.

The fic was rejected.

OH THE CONSUMPTION!!

I wrote a fanfic for Chalkzone on the Nick.com forums where Snap got "a disease" and died. For some reason.

WHERE'S JAR-JAR BINKS?

I wrote Star Wars fanfiction in which members of the Jedi Council were on some kind of talent show that involved s*** covers of top 40 pop songs that came out in 2010.

This is bringing up memories I've been trying to repress for 10 years....

LIGHTS. CAMERA. ACTION...

Wrote? I made an entire 30 minute Bionicle movie. With a sex scene. Between Takua and Jaller.

I showed it to a friend and then promptly deleted it because it dawned on me halfway through the showing that it might actually be the worst work of fanfiction ever produced

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
