👇🏼HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FANDOM👇🏼
What if my fanfiction can be considered as more than one category (for example Movies and Books)?
- It does not matter which one you pick in this case. Choose the one that might bring you more readers.
What if my story is a crossover (a mix of two books/tv shows/movies etc.)?
- It is also up to you which fandom you choose. We suggest selecting the one that represents a bigger part of your fanfiction.
