Fanfiction.net vs FIMfiction

Recommended Posts

Now admittedly, I've read a couple of the fanfictions over on Fanfiction.net for My Little Pony, and there definitely is some good stuff there if you look hard enough.

Mostly what I want to bring into account is how FIMFiction manages their stories, and how they have to be approved. I think that with a system like this there could be room for personal bias, I understand if something has horrible writing and various spelling mistakes it could be rejected. But, if you ask me, downright rejecting stories that while are bad, the point of fanfiction is to get feedback and to improve, and I don't think people on FiMFiction get that chance because of their approval system, while writers on Fanfiction.net do get that chance.

I believe they both work in tandem with each other.

FiMFiction ensures that every story has at the least basic grammar. You go there if you want to read stories that, whilst many are amateur, have a higher possibility of being really good.

As for Fanfiction, it allows everyone to post a story. Whilst many of these wont exactly be awesome, it does provide them with critical feedback where necessary.

FIMFICTION!

 Of course I vote fimfiction, but that could also be because I've never tried fanfiction. And I've been on fimfiction longer. I've read so many stories and I've wrote so few.

FIMFiction for the very reason @Stellafera mentioned. The filter is easier to use and functionally works.

 

I wish that they would support .mobi files. I would be more willing to jump into the fray myself, but I use a program called Scrivener which is the WP program of choice my many self published authors. While it can export to HTML, PDF, .doc, and .docx ... I lose some control over typography and formatting which drives me crazy. At least with .mobi a reader could get the best possible reading experience using the Kindle app.

I prefer fanfiction and here's why: mobile services. Fan fiction has a mobile site, but fimfiction doesn't. It is way easier to check the stories I like on my phone or 3DS rather then my computer, and fimfiction crashes way to easily since it has no mobile site.

Well, if this is the once in a blue moon I am reading mlp fanfiction, I use fimfiction as it is easier to find what I want, and to filter out what I do not like. Fanfiction does offer mobile services, and a far wider range of fanfictions, but if I am looking for MLP fanworks, I normally default fo Fimfiction as it is just easier to navigate and sort through.

 

But I normally do not read MLP fanfiction in general lol.

If you are strictly looking for pony story's then FIMfiction has the better quality stuff (for the most part)

 

Fan fiction isn't bad but sometimes it takes a bit of digging to find real quality stuff.

 

I would like fan fiction.net a lot better if they were to change their format to a more book standard view much like FIMfiction

I don't even use fimfiction, so fanfiction.net by default. It's where I first started reading MLP fics anyway, and there are a lot of good ones on there, but I'm pretty sure a lot of authors post the stories on both sites.

That is a great point. Need to add that to my list of issues with the site. No mobile version and lack of .mobi support.

Well, FiMFiction is definitely the place to go if you want FiM specific stories. For one thing there are a lot more of them there than there are on Fanfiction.net. That said, I post my FiM stories to both, since I had a fanfiction.net account first and wrote fanfiction for other things before I became a brony.

I got my start on fanfiction.net, and the userbase there didn't spam my e-mail account with loli, snuff pics, and scat porn, so I'll have to go fanfiction.net :please:

 

FiMfic is where I go to read MLP fanfics in the rare event I decide to do so, and I've been working on one that I'm pondering there, but overall, the initial introduction to the fandom fimfic provided me is something I'll doubt I'll forget.

Every now and again (in the holidays) I just sit down with my tablet and spend a week on fimfiction.

Sure, I eat and sleep, and occasionally check the social services. But apart from that its reading reading reading

 

In case you don't know me, I really, really, really, really like reading :D

So fimfiction is the best one for me

Reading is a lovely past time, is it not?  :smug:

Fimfiction is where I go for pony fanfiction.

Archive Of Our Own is where I go for non-pony fanfaction. I haven't visited fanfaction.net for a long time. Too much immature works there imho.

 

Edit: my autocorrect wrecked my post more than it fixed it.
