[rebelmouse-image 18349119 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!!!!

[rebelmouse-image 18349121 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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....

[rebelmouse-image 18348594 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18356863 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18357521 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!!

[rebelmouse-image 18977963 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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?

[rebelmouse-image 18977964 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18977965 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
