Hey, I have a relevant question.  Has reading a fanfic ever caused you to be so intruigued with a series you've never seen that you go and check it out?  I mean, you may wonder what you'd be doing reading a fanfic from a series you don't know about/care for, but there's always crossovers. :P

Criminal Minds. Oh so very much. A friend wanted me to watch it, I refused. She kept sending me fan-fics because she knows I'll read anything once as long as it's well written. Enough of that and I caved and bought the first five season at a used place downtown so I'd understand what the hell was going on.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Hybrid Theory, which is a massive crossover fanfic and also one of my favourite fics ever. I didn't gain any new fandoms from it, but I did check out a few things.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality got me re-interested in Harry Potter.

The infamous My Immortal: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4719325/1/My_Immortal_REPOST

I myself didn't know of this fic until today, while searching for some old HP fics that I like. To be honest, I'm torn between laughing really hard and muttering all kinds of crass words at my laptop. This fic is...indescribable. Seriously. Just take a look for yourself.

WARNING: Fic is NSFW and may cause you to lose all understanding of the English language. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Ok seriously, is nobody even going to try and avenge my man-burrito?

Can't say I have but on a similar vein I didn't know half of the pairings people had made for characters in Fallout until I wandered thru the kink meme community. And some of them I actually liked and started to track down every fic with the pairing.

While I did know about it, I never played any Mass Effect (I would like to, but I don't have the time to invest in it), so I instead gained respectable knowledge about it through fanfics.

I have about a dozen plot bunnies in my head, but the story I am actually working advances slowly enough (see this thread for the reason why), so I don't divert more time writing them down. I once actually put up one of them up for adoption on Spacebattles. ([1])
That said, I've stopped trying to anticipate what people around here want a while ago, I've found it makes things smoother.

HPMOR got me interested in half a dozen new things... none of them fiction, though.

I picked up Psychonauts and played the HELL out of it because of fic.  Same with Bastion, come to think of it.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Here is a little exercise in absurdity I wrote a while back, if anyone's interested in reading it. You might hate me by the time you get to the end though.

Sorry for the thread necromancy but I'd thought I'd show off some of my Dragon Age fanfiction:
http://www.fanfiction.net/~morninglight

Completed stories:
'The Dutiful Daughter': Slightly AU-ish playthrough fic of a female Cousland called Mara, who does the expected things Alistair fangirls write in their stories... With a twist: she's a high-functioning autistic.

'For the Good of the Circle': part of the Maraverse but from the viewpoint of an f!Amell/Cullen romance where the Amell never became a Warden...

'The Guard and the Girl': AU of the Maraverse with the same autistic protagonist and Alistair romance, but they never become Wardens and Alistair left the Chantry of his own volition...

Ongoing stories:
'The Coming Storm': Maraverse, on the backburner due to other projects.

'The Black Griffin': part of the 'Guard and Girl'/'Game of Princes' universe, detailing the life of an OC called Rennio d'Antiva: think Machiavelli and Ezio Auditore having their genes mixed to produce a gay badass assassin and political mastermind who just also happens to be a Grey Warden. Infrequently updated.

'The Game of Princes': Game of Thrones-inspired sequel to 'The Guard and the Girl' with a metric crapton of mythological and religious influences in addition to truly vicious politics. Somewhat on the backburner but updated every few weeks.

'Alphabet of the Warden-Queen': infrequently updated alphabet challenge dedicated to Warden-Queen Mara Cousland from 'The Dutiful Daughter'; will contain outtakes to bridging flash-fics between the events of Dragon Age: Awakening and an AU version of Dragon Age 2 which happens in Ferelden.

'A Diamond in Dust Town': f!Brosca (common dwarf origin) and Duncan romance. Totally AU; so AU I took a chainsaw to canon, according to my friends. Contains reasonably described human-dwarf sex and frequent coarse language.

I hope you like my stuff!

I has Dance Dance Revolution fanfic. I wrote it when I was 16 purely as a joke, so naturally it's short but very poorly written. Read at your own risk.

I've been writing a piece of Inuyasha/original fiction for... years.  I say Inuyasha/original because it centers around a character who is only mentioned in the series, but never makes an appearance, so it's more of a prequel with a 90% original cast.

Basically, the idea was that, practically everything that happens in the Inuyasha timeline proper is the result of either some artifact left behind by or a previous acquaintance of his father.  Yet his father is dead the whole time and plays no active role in the story, but seems to have nevertheless been crazy-prepared and drove most of the main plot from beyond the grave.  So naturally I had the curiosity to explore WTF was up with this guy.

Canon gives me scant few details to work with.  No mention of personality.  No mention of lifestyle.  Hell, he doesn't even have a name.  So I had to cobble together all the various bits we do know about him and basically construct a character from scratch out of them.  I wanted to stick to canon as much as possible, though, so instead of just making up a name for him, I wrote the entire thing in first-person to get around having to call him anything in the narration, and simply have other characters only address him as a title.

Unfortunately, the thing has basically turned into "The Life Story and Psychological Breakdown of Inuyasha's Dad" (aka "Memoirs of a Daiyoukai"), and at currently 94 chapters, he's still only 14 years old.  And he lived for hundreds of years.   This... is gonna take a while.  Each chapter also comes with an illustration, and at least my art has slowly improved over the years, too (though some still looks a bit derpy).
