I have no life, so I read fanfictions and attempt to write. I hope you enjoy any stories I place on FanFiction.net.
Well, I might as well write one huge disclaimer now...
DISCLAIMER: Whatever fanfictions I write are JUST FAN-FICTIONS! If I was the actual author would I be on this site? Probably not. I would be somewhere in Hawaii or Indiana(my favorite state) typing away new stories on my state-of-the-art laptop I bought with all the money I got from my bestsellers. But, I'm a teenage girl, sitting at home on her piece-of-crap computer, thinking up new plot lines to add already-created characters to. Sorry to disappoint you.
AU = Alternate Universe. Story does not follow the plot of the Twilight saga.
AH = All Human. There will be no vampires in the story.
AN = Author's Note. A notice, question, or other comment that the author of the story needs their readers to see.
POV = Point Of View.The eyes that we read through as we follow a fic. (EX: The Twilight saga is Bella's POV.) If written in the third person, no specific POV must be declared.
Ship = It means that you support a specific pairing.
OOC = Out Of Character. The actions or personality of a specific character will be different from what we deem normal for that specific character. (IE: Rosalie might be super nice to Bella right away in an AU fic, which would mean Rosalie was written OOC.)
OC = Original Character. A person not from the books will be featured in the story.
HEA = Happily Ever After. Rather self-explanatory.
Non-canon = This is used mainly for pairings. If, for example, you read a Jasper/Bella story you are reading a non-canon story; because it does not feature in the books.
Canon= It DOES feature in the books. This is often used both for pairings, and for plot. (Ex. for plot: Stories that take place pre-Twilight or post-Breaking Dawn are nearly always acclaimed canon stories.)
Lemon/Smut = Any non-kid-friendly material, always in a sexual reference. A lemon is most always R rated, while smut can be hidden in between the lines in something K rated.
Slash = Male and Male smut.
Femmeslash = Female and Female smut.
PWP = Porn Without Plot. Graphic lemons written for the sake of being a lemon.
Outtake= It's technical definition is a chapter which has been taken out. However, it's universally used as a term for a chapter written in another character's POV. Usually posted at the end of the fic.
WIP = Work In Progress.The fic is not yet finished.
Darkfic= This is a fic where dark themes and events are strongly present. It deals with situations like slavery and misuse of sex. Very often includes some sort of physical abuse towards another person. Drug use or graphic death can also constitute a darkfic. (IE: The majority that I have seen are in the HP fandom. In particular, Draco Malfoy buying Hermoine Granger to be used as a pleasure tool.)
R+R / R&R = Read and Review. It means, basically, that if you read you should be nice enough to review. Us authors love feedback, it is half the reason we write. We like to try and grow as writers.
OTP = One True Pairing. This is the ship that an author has declared their favorite. It can be crack or canon. An OTP is usually very natural-feeling and easy for an author to write. Though unusual, an author can have two OTP's per fandom.
Fluff= A type of fic which has a generally happy atmosphere, rather than loads of smut or angst. Of course, one could always write a specific type of fluff and change that. (IE: Tragic Fluff will be all angst and someone dies.)
WAFF = Warm and Fluffy Feeling. It's super fluff! Usually-K-Rated things that just make you gush with happiness induce WAFF.
Songfic = A fan fiction based around or inspired by a song. The contents should have something to do with the lyrics. Usually a one-shot.
Crossover= Sticking Remus Lupin in the Twilight world? Turning the Inu Yasha into a cat for the Warriors world? You have created a crossover.
Name Smooshing= This is quite literally smooshing names together. Most popularly used in Warriors, but can be found all over the Fanfiction community. (IE: Twilight/ Jasper and Alice are Jalice. Harry Potter/ Draco and Hermoine are Dramoine.)
