Back then, I was only thirteen, and as an aspiring writer, the site very much appealed to me. Over the past seven years, I've had various accounts on there, and posted up a fair few stories. I used to think it was the most amazing site ever, that nothing could ever top it. Now, I very rarely visit and when I do, finding a good story ..." Read review

AdvantagesGet your work a worldwide audience in seconds

A great face with a rather iffy back end

DisadvantagesFrequent site downtime, poor file upload system, unable to post links in story chapters, posting of song lyrics banned

"...'flavour' to their work, but fanfiction.net has sighted possible breech of copyright as their reason or banning such a practice. One has only to go to Google, or another search engine to find that this measure is totally pointless, and actually has a negative impact on the quality of the material on their site. One has to balance up the pros and the cons when deciding whether to use this website. One the one hand, it's feature rich, with a range ..." Read review
