Are You Planning to Continue?

I get reviews like this a lot. Probably because I write a lot of one shots and a lot of ambiguous endings or stories that don’t end with Happily Ever After. In most cases, I don’t continue and have no plans to continue. The reaction I tend to get when I state this fact is disappointment and more pleas to continue.

Who has the time? Not me. Nor do I, in most cases, have the inclination. When the story is done in my head, it’s done, and to pull it out again would mean forcing it, and that’s no fun. Fanfiction has to be fun, or why the hell am I doing it?

Obviously there’s people out there who do see that story going places, and I’m absolutely fine with them taking it places if they are so inclined. What I’m saying is, if you want to see it continue, write it yourself! You have a vision, do something with that vision!

All my fanfic is licensed with Creative Commons. You might have seen this or some variation of it on my fic wherever I post:

That up there means, among other things, that anyone can, provided they meet a few conditions, write fanfic of my fanfic. Without asking. Without getting permission. All you have to do is give credit, don’t pull-to-publish, and allow others to fanfic your fanfic of my fanfic ;)

So don’t ask me if I’m planning to continue. Ask yourself if you are ;) Give it a try.

For the record, this doesn’t just apply to one shots. Any of my fics are fair game. Even the unfinished ones. Anyone want to complete Beautiful Dangerous?
