Breakfast Topic: Do you read or write WoW fanfic?


This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

The creative community surrounding World of Warcraft is a varied one. No matter what genre of art you look into, you will find a WoW geek making something amazing somewhere. If you search hard enough, you can find everything from fan-made jewelry to cosplay, digital art to sculpture, machinima to comic strips, and so much more. Also included in this world of WoW-based arts is the writing community.

The topics covered in the writing community are as different and vast as the playerbase itself. You have your eclectic WoW blogs, the number-crunching, class-based fan sites, and everything in between. The one area of the writing community that has been getting my interest lately though has been the fanfic section. I'm an absolute sucker for a great story.

Do you write fan fiction? Do you use a blogging platform to showcase your work, or do you use a site like If you write your own fanfic, what sort of characters do you write about? Do you write about well-known characters, or do you prefer to tell the story of some unknown face who just so happens to live in Azeroth? Do you tell the stories of your characters that you play in game, or do you tell the tale of the mysterious bread lady of Ironforge? If you don't write fanfic (either because you don't feel like you could ever do such a thing, which everyone should at least try, in my honest opinion), what is the story you wish you could tell, or what is a story that you would love to see told?
