I write fanfiction because I enjoy it, I write it in my free time. I'm normally writing something original more so than fanfiction.

When I am obsessed with a series but have nothing left in it to watch. That and when I find character(s) very interesting and/or memorable.

I agree with the above post. People usually write fan fiction when they are obsessed with the seires or the character. i remember reading so many fan fictions on Strawberry Panice to the point where I didn't want to watch the original any more.

To put it into words, its 100% self gratification. Its really nice when something that you write is enjoyed by others too ^w^

The only reason why I would ever write a fanfiction is if the story that I was basing it off of is a story that I never wanted to end.

No other reason.

I started writing fanfiction on a whim, honestly. I remember watching Fairy Tail back then, thinking... 'What if that happened differently?' Thinking that, coming up with that single change in a single arc I realized that it changed the whole story. Guess that intrigued me and I started writing.

Write fanfiction because there is an alteration they want to add to the story, or perhaps they want the characters or plot to take another path.

while writing i always imagine the scene in my head, while writing i always put real feelings in it
it makes me happy, i can do or say anything i want through a character in a story
i can make my own world, the world of my dreams be real in my stories while creating events and problems and all :)

I agree with onedi28; I write because I'm a little obsessed with the whatever I'm writing about and need to get it out there. Lol. Or I just feel like writing something but usually it's my obsessiveness. Ha! XD

I use to hate it but find myself writing fanfics. I still want to create my own stories instead.
Just to write in general is exciting in general.

For me, I've found fanfictions a great way to express a conclusion within an anime series that might have been either too vague or simply allowed viewers to decide on their own conclusion. A good example would be an anime like Angel Beats! where the ending was very much left for the viewer to decide.

I'm not an avid fanfiction writer, but if I cannot think of anything else to write about, I don't mind writing a fanfiction. Part of it is to kill time until I come up with an idea over what to write, part of it is also exciting and fun.

I believe writing fan fiction is a really good way to "get your feet wet" if you will. The characters and the world have already been developed so it allows you to focus on the plot. It provides a pre-conceived set of rules for you to work by, making it easier weed out any holes in the logic of your story or deviations from a particular characters personality. This isn't to say that all pre-written characters are perfect but they are widely accepted to be the way they are so if you can stick to their particular norm then your solid. When it comes to your own original character no matter how much you have written there will still be moments where you think "would they really do that". Not necessarily because you don't understand your own character but sometimes you may not be sure that's how you wanted it to end up and because it's your character you have the right to change anything about them. With fan fiction, if you don't write it how the character would actually be then people will notice and react negatively.

I write fanfiction when I want to see a character interaction that doesn't happen onscreen. I'm one of those people who wants to know every little detail about characters (what did they have for breakfast, etc.), so there's always plenty of topics to choose from.
