A little about Fanfiction
Have you ever wondered what might’ve happened if you were a character in your favorite movie? Or wondered about different endings to a book? What if Princess Leia had been raised on Tatooine and Luke Skywalker by the Rebellion? Or, what if Harry Potter had been sorted into Slytherin not Gryffindor? There are a million ways to explore the narrative of an existing work. Your own deleted scenes, a change in relationship dynamics, a dramatic twist in the main plot, or what if everybody’s in high school?
Welcome to the world of Fanfiction.
As a literary genre however, fanfiction doesn’t have much of a reputation. Aside from the clear wish fulfillment fantasies it embodies, a large portion of the stories are posted online by young authors in their raw unedited form. The worst of the pieces are the ones drawn into the spotlight. My Immortal, ringing any bells?
Now, I could get into how this is a gross misrepresentation. I’m looking at you, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I’ve read many better fanfics but we’d be here all day if I went into that, so you can read more here.
Only A Boy
Merlin had fulfilled his destiny. Albion was alive and beautiful, and magic was no longer feared in the land. But nothing ever lasts, does it? Memories gone, and in his ten-year-old form once more, he’s traveled over a thousand years in the future. Now, he has a new destiny: He has to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, hide the fact that he’s Merlin, and defeat a Dark Lord that’s messing with magic he knows nothing about.
I’m a 2015 graduate from the University of Washington, with a Bachelor Degree in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis. I’m a huge nerd, enjoy binge-watching television, and suffer from extreme wanderlust. My real name is Sarah Gronostalski. This space here is for all my fanfiction endeavors, which I have much affection for and is what got me writing in the first place.
