Two prompts, and a discussion question:

I did promise to post prompts on this community, to get creative juices flowing. Here are two to get us started. If you write something based on the prompts, please post the story in this community!

1. Something different
Choose a novel that you’ve never written a story for, and write a short fic for it. Even a drabble will do.

2. Something that never happened
Choose one event that never happened to your favorite literary character, and write an au drabble.


Question of the week:

Many of us on this community are fic writers. Out of your own stories, what do you think is your best work, and why? Be sure to post a link, so we can all read it!

Chiana606's fan fiction recs


Since this community has five members, I thought I might as well get things started a bit, with a list of some of my favorite classic literature based fic. 

Picture of Dorian Gray

Letters Signed a Fool - By Mandolin77
A series of letters from Basil to Dorian, reflecting on several important moments in the book.  The author really has a very good understanding of Basil's character, and the writing reflects Oscar Wilde's style remarkably well.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre, the Facebook addition - By Writergal85
The story of Jane Eyre, told by facebook status updates from the characters.  Silly, but great fun.

Dracula

Literary Agent Hypothesis - by Skazka
A little story about Mina organizing the fragments of their adventures into a book, after the Dracula ordeal is over.
 

Emma

Upon What Grounds - By HL (Hele)
Emma and zombies!  :)  It takes the concept of Pride and Prejudice and zombies, but puts it to use without all the silliness.  This story is very, very creepy.  the writing style is very Austen like. 




Little Women

Pilgramage - by Rese
An AU of Little Women, in which Meg dies in childbirth.  Mostly focuses on the relationship between Jo and Laurie.  All of the author's works are excellent and worth checking out, but this is my particular favorite.

Stormy Night - By Laura Schiller
A piece about the relationship between Laurie and Professor Bhaer, after Jo is married to Bhaer.  The author also has many other stories, mostly focusing on Bhaer.  Although I never liked Bhaer or Jo/Bhaer before reading her works, everything she writes is so effective and believable that it's impossible not to like it.

Completing the Puzzle - Dream's Sister
A series of little moments between Jo and Laurie.  My absolute favorite Little Women fic ever. 

20 Different Ways to Leap Through the Minuet - Mariagoner
AU - 20 different looks at what Jo and Laurie's marriage might have been, if they'd had the chance.  Another author with lots of good fics, who tends to take Little Women in interesting directions that haven't been tried by the other writers in this (rather small) fandom.

Five Things that Never Happened to Damon and Pythias - by Dhobi Ki Kutti
Five AUs about Dan and Nat (of Little Men/Jo's Boy's fame).  It's mostly fairly mild slash.  I can't say I ever expected to find, much less enjoy Little Women slash, but this is fantastically well written.  The author nails Dan's narrative voice.
