I got a review last week, well not a review, more like a personal attack against me in one of my MJ-P.Y.T.Girls fanfiction called "The Michael Jackson Harem Story", that idiot posted a review calling me a "F:perrinING LESBIAN!" I was so mad, but the jokes on that idiot because "I'M A F:perrinING MAN FOR GOD SAKE!" My apologies for that outburst, but it is insulting, so I deleted that insulting review away.

Remember folks. Be careful, some idiot trolls will add insult among yous in your reviews of your stories.

I've never read fan fiction for anything, but I would like to give it a shot. I even had a thought for a story a few weeks ago (yes, Michael-related), inspired by Hollywood Tonight- I got a few sentences going in my head as I was walking to work, but I don't think I ever wrote them down :( I can still remember the general idea and where I was going with it, but I don't remember exactly what I wanted to say. It's funny because I used to struggle with writing (I'd have to have my sister write my school papers for me :lol:), but I've gotten so much better in the last couple years. Once I get my site up and running, I might give it a shot, who knows?

EDIT: Just read through the whole thread and just wanted to comment on the whole topic around "sexual" fanfics- although I've never ready any fics at all, the thought of sexual ones turns me off. I mean, maybe some making out or something is about as far as I would like to read. Personally, I find emotional attachments/relationships much more satisfying than sexual ones. So reading a story, for example, about two people falling in love but never giving in to that sexual desire... their relationship is based entirely on emotions... I love that because it doesn't give everything away. It gives my imagination the opportunity to wander, to think... "Well, what if they "went there"?" I can make up my own scenarios in my head.

Plus, if I ever do get around to writing my fan fic, it would be clean. PG-13 at worst. Yes, I like to drool and oggle over Michael- what hot-blooded female doesn't? :lol:- but to go into sexually explicit detail, in my opinion, is just disrespectful. I would not be able to sleep at night if I did something like that... I would be so riddled with guilt it's ridiculous. Maybe that makes me weird, but hey. That's how I roll.

That's my :2cents:

i've read a few from G rated to ... well .. what most of them tend to be about. only a couple of them were interesting to me because in order for me to enjoy it, i have to believe it. the situation doesn't even have to be realistic, just the things that michael would say, do, and react to. most of the ones i have read have been very loosely based on michael (and yes I know it's fiction, and fantasy, but this is just me - i have to BUY it). some of the ones i have read have set up a situation perfectly well, and then michael enters into the story and says something that he would NEVER say or acts in some kind of aggressive way... I don't know.. that's my take on it.

I like some of them, at least the well-written ones lol. I like the alternate universes that they create. It's almost like some of the short films that Michael came up with grew legs and took on lives of their own, I always thought that was kinda cool.

As far as the sexual stuff goes, like with any other kind of story, it has to have context within the story for me to be able to stomach it lol. Writing out love scenes (or even erotica for that matter) takes a certain level of tact and finesse. Without it, it comes off as corny, crass and just makes for an awkward read lol. All in all, they're a pleasant diversion, especially on those days when I'm really missing him; I'm able to step into a world where he's still here and anything is possible.

Spyce, some sites rate their fanfics so that you can look for/avoid particular subject matter, that might be a good starting place for you. :)

I used to write them when I was younger, and I've suddenly got a bug to do another - because I've certainly improved as a writer (I hope! lol). But I had to check this poll to see if that's even a thing anymore lol. I remember it was huge when I was around.
And I used to be really into it :giggle:
I definitely get the uneasiness about writing about real people, and its kinda weird for me too - especially if its sexual in nature. Though I did find MJ attractive, I probably wrote like one sexual fiction just to experiment, and I never did it again cuz it was just too weird lol
I also didn't write fiction with myself in them - something I saw a lot. It was completely fantasy based. Like something based on a music video concept - I remember I wrote a lot of horror type stuff, cuz I was into that sort of thing (still am lol). Though I think I wouldn't revisit that now because although they were fun at the time, it'll be sensitive now for some people.

I think if I were to write one now, it would be based on one of his songs (Thinking about doing one based on "Place with No Name" or "Chicago" or Blue Gangsta ....haha can't decide, all the songs are so storytelling-oriented, I love it :D) - or a "day in the life of Michael Jackson," - where maybe there would be a storyline happening through some period in his life that everyone is familiar with. Secret romance with a fictional character, or even just maybe attempting to capture what it might've been like for him on a typical day and "bring him to life" in a figurative way with a theme woven in.

But I hope MJ fan fiction isn't completely out of style. I think its a good outlet for fans to possibly give tribute to him in an artistic way (since I think writing is an artistic medium) if done right, if its done with respectful intentions. And like someone said, for readers, it can feel like he's been brought back to life in some ways.

Some fan fiction is as well written as in any published book. A lot of authors start this way, learning their craft. Obviously some is terrible because its open to everyone to self publish, mine would be the worse!! I used to read vampire diaries fan fiction (don't judge!) and some was amazing!
Someone on here mentioned an MJ story called Jerk? i tried finding it but no luck and a website that i think had it called enchanted stories wouldn't let me register. Anyone here could point me in the right direction it would be most appreciated!

I'm not a huge fan of RPF (real-person fic) but way back in the day I came across ONE or TWO MJfics that were not embarrassing to read. One was fantastic and I only ever read it once and I can't find it anywhere! It was called "Curves are Better," and it was essentially a Thriller!Mike experimenting with a guy and deciding he didn't like it. It was super adorable and I felt actually written in character.

If anyone has any recommendations for actually well-written stuff, please let me know! I've scoured MJFiction and while I'll read something here or there, I roll my eyes at most of it.

Off and on throughout the past ten years I've written some for him but I have such mixed feelings about RPF that I never finished anything. I'd like to though. It'd be cathartic I think.

I agree about the AU thing. Michael loved fantasy and something written in that thread is something I'd like to read. I think even he'd get a kick out of it haha

I don't really like reading them. But there is one fanfic I'm helping to write and there's a story I'm working on that has a Michael-esque character!

None of the poll choices matches my answer.

I used to read them a lot when I was a teenager and when I discovered the KOP board where there was a fan fiction section. For many years I just read, but in 2007 I wrote my own. I remember the year because it was when Michael had returned to the US and the story focused on that and how he had changed after his trial.
I don't like the overly romantic stories where he's a perfect gentleman because it's so unrealistic, so I went in the opposite direction and made him kind of an ass really. But it was because he'd become so paranoid and cynical from the trial and everyone turning their backs on him. So the story focused on that and him getting back together with his ex who he'd dumped before having left the country.

I've tried reading some stories again recently, but I just can't get into them. I can't take the storylines or characters seriously, it's too unrealistic. Maybe it's because I'm no longer a teenager I feel like that.

Heh, I do agree with you that many are unrealistic. Every now and then you'll find one that's interesting. Authors that sometimes put themselves in the story and use "I" rather than a character's name sometimes do a good job at having you kind of insert yourself in the story, which is fun. Stories that at least try to depict Michael in a realistic way are more likely to catch my eye, but they are few and far between. Many are of the "fluffy romance" kind as well--no interesting twists, turns, or realism.

I actually admit that I started writing my own, at first with the intention of "publishing" them online, but abandoned the idea, especially since I am a rather private person. I still write them, but keep them to myself and look back and read them for fun. I feel kind of juvenile for it :D, but writing has always been a nice escape for me, so I guess it's a guilty pleasure :)
