Summary: "We tell you the truth about fanfiction! "
- Archive: Cemetery for deceased plotbunnies. Storage of stories. Often of varying quality, but some just suck.
- Hurt/Comfort: Best to demonstrate with a mini-fic here. Writer takes character A, strips him, strings him up from a tree, covers him in honey and sets a swarm of wasps on him. Character B wanders past, and says, "What's happened to you then?" A replies, "I've been stripped, strung up from a tree, covered in honey and had a swarm of wasps set on me. It's really quite painful." B, "Oh. Poor you. Fancy a shag?"
- WIP: Work In Progress. Written by people who think the ‘Iliad’ was too damn concise.
