Stranger Than FanFiction by Chris Colfer @chriscolfer
Stranger Than Fanfiction - Chris Colfer

I won a fabulous package from Chris Colfer that included the book, Stranger Than FanFiction, a pair of sunglasses, a notebook for travel , and a keychain of America. I would have missed this wonderful story if I hadn’t been lucky enough to win it.

MY REVIEW

 

This is a wonderful adventure novel about a group of nerdy high school kids traveling from coast to coast with their childhood idol, stretching their horizons and growing as individuals, learning the true meaning of friendship. Stranger Than FanFiction by Chris Colfer surprised me by being so much more than just kids on a road trip, with the writing drawing me in slowly and the ending hitting like a punch to the gut.

Stranger Than Fanfiction
Stranger Than Fanfiction - Chris Colfer Four friends have planned the ultimate road trip to celebrate graduating high school, with stops at funky roadside attractions, out-of-the-way museums and, best of all, it culminates in a tour of the set of their favorite TV show, Wiz Kids. The show is how they became friends in the first place and what they hope will keep them together when they all go off to separate schools in the fall. A last-minute invite, made in jest, is sent to Wiz Kids star Cash Carter and he accepts! The reality of the actor who plays their screen idol might be more than these friend can handle, especially when they've all got secrets of their own. These five are going to learn what its like when people stop being polite and start getting real.

I was looking forward to reading this ever since we received the arc, because I enjoyed Struck by Lighting and I know a lot of people are devoted to his Land of Stories series. I'm sure that there are some significant edits still to be made, because there were times when the omniscient narration got choppy, tracking different characters' thoughts in a confusing way, but I still didn't like the story. There were some deeper problems with the plot. The positives are that the characters' situations are relevant to a lot of younger readers and Colfer touches on a lot of important issues. I've written before about liking stories simply because of the importance of their content, about the fact of a conversation being more important than the quality of the conversation, but it wasn't enough to sway me this time.

The story's not for me, there was a lot of humor and angst, but in the end there was no sincere heart. I'll still read the next one.

Mein privates HP-Revival!

Ach, es ist manchmal so, aber wirklich so schön, in Erinnerungen zu schwelgen und einfach im Glanz vergangener Zeiten zu baden. Kurz gesagt: Harry Potter zu gucken!

Mit einer Freundin habe ich letztens die Filme zu Band 1-3 angesehen und dann gedacht, dass ich da nicht einfach stehen bleiben kann und will, sondern lieber noch die Filme zu Band 4-6 ansehen möchte. Und was soll ich sagen: Es war unglaublich schön. Ich liebe Snape, ich bin immer noch so glücklich darüber, dass Alan Rickman diese Figur verkörpern durfte und alle Filme hindurch spielen konnte, hach... always. 

 

 

 

 

Aber nun schrecke ich vor den Filmen zu Band 7 zurück... kennt ihr das? Dabei weiß ich doch, was passiert und überhaupt und generell und so, aber noch einmal alle sterben sehen, noch einmal Harry mit einem Expelliarmus (*gähn*) triumphieren sehen? Mmh... also habe ich mir eine kleine Auszeit gegönnt und bin zum Lesen von Fanfictions übergegangen und Dank AO3 gibt es ja ein schier unerschöpflichen Fundus von tollen Fanfictions zu Snape und ...

Ich zelebriere also mein ganz privates Harry-Potter-Revival!! Seufz...

My fan-fiction on wattpad - where else?

For those of you who like the urban fantasy writer Wen Spencer and her Elfhome universe, I've written a short story set in it. I love Wen Spencer and I adore her Elfhome series. Five Days of Elf is my first ever piece of fan-fiction. I have never written it before - never been tempted - but Elfhome got the better of me.

I wanted to post my story where other Elfhome fans were sure to find it but discovered, to my surprise, there is no such site, no place where the fans of this writer congregate. Not even her own website: it doesn't invite communication, just serves as an information dispensary.

The only place where I found a couple of Elfhome fan-fiction stories is Fanfiction.net, but the stories there are at least 2 years old. No new ones.  

So I posted my story on wattpad. It is based on the Elfhome universe, but the characters and the plot are my own. In this story, Lisa, a film school student from Vancouver, Canada, attends a local Shakespearean festival, when a gun-toting terrorist starts a shooting spree. She could've been killed, if not for a young man in a gray turban who risks his life stopping the shooter. But the turbaned guy turns out not what he seemed to be.

 

You could read the story Five Days of Elf here.

I made the cover myself and I'm happy with it. The girl does look the way I pictured Lisa while I wrote her story.

Fangirl
Fangirl - Rowell. Rainbow

Have you ever liked something so much that you wish it would never end?

 

How about a TV show? Where you get so immersed in the characters that you just want their story to continue? Or maybe change the story to your liking?

 

Then welcome to FanFiction!! Where all your dreams CAN come true....you just have to write it. The cool part is many times people think they are the only ones that feel they way they do about a certain character or story and they just hid in their little shell when really there are hundreds of other people feeling the same way as you do. FanFiction can help you get out of your shell and meet other people that think just like you do, or better!!! And if other people don't like what you come up with, FanFiction helps you grow stronger about yourself and your ideas that you don't care what others think.

 

FanFiction is all Cath can think about. She wakes up in the morning..."gotta go on FanFiction", at school..."gotta write for FanFiction". Her room is covered in FanFiction memorabilia. But she's really good at it. Hundreds and thousands of fans log on everyday to see what else she has written about. She's a sensation.

 

Now if only she can put those words that she writes on paper to her mouth in reality.

Cath is very shy around other people. She doesn't react real to them, unlike her sister. Sometimes it's okay, she can just slink back into her room by herself and jut write.

Well, Cath is now in College. Goodbye privacy!!! Cath is totally out of her comfort zone and her sister Wren wants to move on with her life and leave FanFiction all together which Cath thinks it's a sin.

 

What's Cath going to do now? She doesn't really want to do this alone and whenever she tries to meet new people it just becomes a total disaster.

 

As long as she has her Simon Snow FanFiction to keep her alive. But even that seems to start coming to a head. For the books that made Simon Snow popular is finishing up...will her FanFiction too? What will she do afterwards? And can she really finish college on her own with no help what so ever?

 

A great story about a girl growing into a woman with the world watching her every move. And it just happens to be in College...GREAT!!!!
