Example Fanfiction

  • Safe Distance. Sherlock novel; Sherlock/John
  • Engastrimyth. LotR. Widely recommended horror short in which Frodo is corrupted by the Ring. Te writes an honest-to-God screamer of a tale all about the subtlety of the serpent within ourselves, and the death of hope. / Beautifully done.[1]
  • The Last Shreds of Autumn. LotR novelette; Frodo/Sam at Rivendell. Serai1 writes Complex, rich with details, and capturing both Frodo and Sam beautifully, as well as all the other characters involved in the Rivendell segment of LOTR. One of the beat elements of this story is the deeply chilling nightmare that troubles Frodo's sleep. Lovely prose, sharp and well written.[2]
