I am fairly new to Fan Fiction. I have always been a reference book reader, and was not interested (may be even a bit afraid) of the fiction world. I thought it was silly to read about a make-believe world and I don't think I could not enjoy a fictional world... but then Harry Potter intruded my life...
Before Harry Potter, the only other fiction books I have are: Kung Fu novels by Louis Cha and of course, Jane Austen.
But it was not until after Twilight, that I realise I yearned for more... and thus I am now a frequent (daily) visitors to Fan Fiction!! I am forever grateful for fanfiction.net and all you brilliant authors out there!
I do not like non-canon (this is a very new vocabulary for me) stories, so you won't find them on my favourites.
I am no writer, but I have decided to review as many favourite stories of mine as I could, by sharing what I think and hopefully my honest opinion would be a useful contribution to the fan fic world!
One of my favourite stories that are not available in fanfiction.net is:
Green, Red, Gold by Segolily - it's about Edward's earlier life, including his rebellion years. You can find this on Twilighted.
Other Stories that I enjoyed:
Will you be ready when it comes? by hopeful wager - I like this story alot and thorougly enjoyed the writing, I just don't like what happened to some characters... P.S. and I prefer the alternative ending but I refused to accept what happened to CC.
Save You by bella c'ella luna - if you wants to cry your eyes out!! It's a one-shot and AU, but it's beautifully written.
