i rite badfic LOL
This community was linked on FFrants, and I really liked the idea of it, so I decided to join. I had a silly fangirl stage myself, and as I constantly have to reaffirm, I'm not ashamed! Fortunately my true badfic days, many moons ago when I was all of twelve years old, are long since over. I wasn't the one who posted, though, and that's my defense. My now-boyfriend, then-best friend did that, though I freely admit that I beta'd for him. I would share, but when I was a little older and started working on my first serious stories, I asked Duo to take it down.|
Of course, I have more recent badfic as well. Unfortunately my personal least favorite of my fics is avidly waited on by several friends of mine, so I'm trying to mend the damn thing now, two years after I started writing it. The Spider's Web boasts excruciatingly purple prose, exacerbated by the fact that it was my first attempt at good old first person (which I screwed up immensely). It's also a fact that I hadn't actually had sex when I wrote it, so there are plenty of logistical problems that pop up in the sex scenes.
One of my personal favorite parts is just the opening paragraph:
( Brilliant violet!Collapse )
If you're thinking to yourself, "Who thinks like that?" the answer is no one. No one thinks like that. I could go on, but I think it really speaks for itself.
I'm not a particularly fantastic writer. Still, writing badfic is part of improving; a period of growth, you might say. The rabid hatred of it, fangirls, and everything to do with immaturity itself is more irritating than any badfic. Everyone is born immature. It's who you grow up to be that matters, and in my case? For a hopeless Kurama fangirl who got into the worst parts of the uke-or-seme!Hiei debates, I think I turned out quite alright in the end.
