The FanficMaker is a website hosting a Madlibs-style fanfiction generator to "Automatically generate eye-wateringly bad stories!"[1] Users can enter the story details of their choice (character names, superpowers, MacGuffin, time period, author name, etc) or use a selection of presets from various fandoms. Five sliders are also available to determine the story's level of violence, sexual content, cliches, the author's egotisticalness ("At high values the author will even insert themselves into the story."), and the typing style. Different fonts and background images are also selectable.

The FanficMaker was coded by Thomas Wrobel and Bertine van Hövell and is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0). In 2016, in response to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an option to display the story as a Star Wars intro crawl was added, alongside the addition of a TFA fandom preset for the generator.

You can also share snippets of the generated story by highlighting it and choose "Share this quote". Most of the snippets have been inspired by real examples of fanfiction from sites such as
