I thought that it would be fun to share with everyone what my favorite tropes in fanfiction is. These are normally more geared to Harry Potter, and in no order.

Bed Sharing

This was something I use to see a lot in Harry/Hermione fanfiction back after the fifth book was released but now isn’t something that I see much of. I actually love it in most of my fandoms.

Arranged Marriage

This is something I feel like rarely works in most fandoms or fanfiction, but I love when I find a good one.

Canon Au

This is also known as an alternative universe, which is odd to me because back when I started originally reading fanfiction that meant that it the reality had to be different like Harry Potter in a non-magical world, or Gohan in a world where there are no saiyans. So I use the term, Canon Au. I’ve also heard it referred to as canon similar or canon adjacent. But I like fics that retain there original setting.

Sentiel AU

Or fusion, I just like the idea of making my characters into a bonded sentinel and guide. It works for most fandoms, and I like the TV show. I think it brings an interesting element to a fanfiction. This is a type of AU.

Canon Divergent

This is another one I love. It works for all fandoms, and I can’t say enough about it lol. This is a type of AU.

Fix it

This is so helpful for most fandoms (but mostly looking at you Harry Potter) where there are some obvious improvements that are very much needed. Fix it’s are a type of Canon Divergent. Expect you have to fix something where Canon Divergent it doesn’t necessarily need to be fixed.

Magical Au

Where I am not big into other Aus that change the universe of the fandom, I do like adding magic because that doesn’t need to change canon too much to where it is a completely different thing, it can be as simple as Helga finding out about her magical girl powers, or that she has some type of magic. This is only in non-HP fanfiction as that already has magic lol.

Nobel/Lordship Au

This is definitely more of a Harry potter trope, and what I like about is there are some bases in canon, like if you squint but it’s still an element that could be layered on top of canon and that what I like.

Soul Bond/Soul Mate

What is interesting about this trope is I don’t like the typical soulbond/mate things like marks, can’t see color until they meet the one, etc. I like what Keira Marcos did in Harry Potter & the Soulmate Bond, or what DarkJediQueen did in Magic Provides (I also need to quit being lazy and finish reading this.) I like I guess where it’s meant to happen but they write it out where you see the progess.

Ensemble Fics

I love fics with a large cast of main characters because I find them interesting and very plot-driven. I also love the individual stories and subplots. Like in I am Lu’s The Ash Connection.

Let me know if you have a favorite trope below!

Thank you for sharing these interesting tropes babe.

Yeah I’ve also been a fan of fanfiction, I have numerous messageboards and forums I vacant daily.

I don’t read fictions but these are interesting topics to learn about. I always found bed sharing interesting, but more common in modern entertainment. Alternative universes always get me confused – I know I was confused when the DC shows kept having different universes. There are so many different ways to take alternative universes as well. Thanks for sharing some of your faves!

Thank you for interesting information. I’m glad I heard it from you!

I don’t read fan fictions but it’s a little odd that bed sharing seemed to stop! x


lovedust92 - July 8, 2019 @ 10:53 am

Yeah I stayed on messageboards, one of my favorite authors pulled all of her stories from messageboards, so I was able to get them emailed to me. I can read them over & over again. Yeah I know family comes first, but when I have down time I’ll update thewebsite accordingly. We weren’t gonna do anything at first for 4th of July, but we got the email of the fireworks show & I couldn’t pass it up. Lol

Hey Tiffany!!! 🙂 I never follow fanfics or anything. I wanted to tell you that my layout is up! Maybe I should start. 🙂 <3 I went and saw the fire works Friday night. It was a really great show. I loved it. Thanks for always leaving me messages in my cbox. Oh I won't be home tomorrow. I have an appointment at my program. So It will take me longer then expected, lol. But oh well. It gives me structure *wink*. Hope your week will be good. My bday is this month July 28th. Looking forward to it. Take Care hon! Ttyl!

I’ve never really read fan fiction (I don’t think), mostly because I struggle to find enough time to keep up with the few programmes that I like. My favourite fan thing though is a parody twitter account that does incorrect supernatural quotes and a lot of it is destial shipping and I find it funny. Is that kind of thing and bad lipreading a trope?

lovedust92 - July 9, 2019 @ 10:04 am

Yeah I hadn’t heard of FFnet until like.. a month ago lol and I had been searching everywhere for these two specific authors’ stories.. when I finally got them, I was so happy. Outside of graphic design, I love reading. But yeah same here, especially in Washington, DC. Theyve been shooting off fireworks & taunting the people out here for days. It’s annoying and sad. Good thing I don’t go out at night as is. I live in a residential neighborhood, so at about 8PM the police are patrolling the neighborhood.. it’s always peaceful & quiet so we don’t have to deal with the ruckus.

Wow interesting post


lovedust92 - July 10, 2019 @ 9:53 am

Yeah they do the same in DC.. It’s mad annoying because they’re so reckless with everything it’s so crazy. Ooh cool I’ll have to check that website out, see if I can find a few more cool stories to add to my collection. Thank you! I’m coding all of the layouts for the headers I had designed, but Daft Punk if one of my favorite bands so I it was only right I started with that one first. Lol! I used to code layouts a lot when I previously owned a website called fallingstarss.com. But then I was young so when the host closed down I didn’t think to back up all of my work so ofcourse it got deleted. But I’m getting back into it, I downloaded Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, don’t think I’m ready for CC 2019 just yet lol.
