Vampires are in these days. It's debatable whether they ever really went out-I mean, who hasn't at least gone through a phase where they were entranced سے طرف کی vampires? Vampires are sexy, strong, and forbidden-what could be مزید fascinating than that? And there are so many vampires worlds to choose from now: Twilight, House of Night, Vampire Academy, Vampire Diaries, Vladimir Tod, True Blood, Blue Blood, the وین Alen Legacy, Blood Ninja, Blood Coven, and even Buffy and The Lost Boys, who never get old.
It's no wonder so many people want to play in those worlds سے طرف کی writing fanfiction. Here are a few tips for writing vampire fanfiction.
Vampires aren't just people with odd eating habits. Being a vampire changes something in the formerly human nature of these beings. آپ can certainly have vampires with positive human characteristics, such as the compassionate Carlisle یا the loyal Stevie Ray, but those characteristics are tempered and tested سے طرف کی their essentially blood-craving nature. No matter what your fandom, there's something different about vampires.
Know your fandom. Do آپ know the difference between a drudge, a friend, and a mate? A coven, a tribe and a family? A legal vampire and an illegal one? Don't assume that all vampire worlds follow Bram Stoker's mythology, because they don't. Some vampires sparkle, some are allergic to garlic, some have mystical powers, some are masters of seduction, some drink synthetic blood, some are tattooed, some fall in love with humans and some regard humans only as dinner, some can turn into animals, some can enslave آپ and some can be enslaved. If you're writing fanfiction, the whole idea is to write within that world, so آپ have to follow the rules of the world.
Know the difference between AU and AU-Human. This is, of course, where آپ get to break the rules, but even in AU, آپ have to do it right. Alternative Universe is where آپ take the basic canon and آپ change something from canon. What if Bella hooked up with Jacob (or Jasper یا Emmett یا Alice) instead of Edward? What if Vlad and Henry discovered an attraction to each other? What if Zoey remained human but still fell in love with Erik? In these stories, آپ change an element of what the مصنف has دیا you. AU-Human is a little different; in these stories, the vampires aren't vampires. So, Zoey really is a human, Taro falls in with ninjas who are just ninjas, and Edward is a brooding, dark young man, but doesn't want to drink Bella's blood. Both of these can make fabulous stories...but stick as close to the canonical world as آپ can, so that the change is even مزید powerful.
All the rules of good writing apply. Just because it's fanfiction, doesn't mean آپ don't have to make it the best story آپ can. Keep your vampires hot and dangerous, your worlds true to canon, your dialogue sharp and witty, and your plots realistic (within the fantastical world of the story). Get a good beta to double check your chapters so that آپ don't have spelling یا grammar errors. Always respect both your original مصنف and your readers...and the vampires آپ all get to share.
There's so much variety in the fictional worlds of vampires, but they all seem to draw us in and make us want to explore them more. The اگلے time آپ want to spend مزید time with a vamp, follow these tips and write for yourself the story آپ always wanted to read.
