In choosing fanfics.....

Do you ever read any of the fanfics based off of the movies instead of the books? Which do you think are better? Personally I have never read any of the movie ones so I don't know how they are... but I can say that I do like the books better than the movies.

  1. I've read some of the movie-based fics, and I can't say that I like them too much, but that is because I prefer the books to the movies any time of day.

    I LOVE the books but only like the movies. The only ones based on movies I have read are Terreis's (her Back to Green Gables story is based on characters found in the Road to Avonlea series, which I love). Speaking of which, Terreis -- where are you??

  3. I do love the Road to Avonlea series as well. I remember watching reruns at night on Disney before it changed format from showing quality shows to just shows.

    Speaking of Terreis, I've not heard from her in a long while. She did visit the blog once. I really wish she would update "Back to Green Gables."

    I read "Back To Green Gables" the other and I really loved it.. I am going to check out her homepage and find out if she plans on doing any updates...(at least if it says)

    alright this is what it says on her blog and i hope she gets over her writer's block!

    "Also, I've almost finished my additions to the 'Stargate/National Treasure' fic that I've been working on with my friend, Deb. And once I'm done with that, on to 'FAFF' and 'Back to Green Gables'. I hope. At least I have the beginning of the next chapter written for 'FAFF'. I got nothin' for 'Back to Green Gables'. Geez, I hate writer's block." 07-21-05

    I like either; I started off with the first two movies before I decided to read the Anne series. (2nd movie left me wanting to know more about Anne, hence I got the books and read them.) I love the 1st two movies, and I think they were done as accurate as they could be (minus the 3rd installment). Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the books too and always wondered what it would look like to see books 5-7 or 8 portrayed on the little screen.

    Yet I think it's been a while since I've come across a movie based one, but it depends on the writer and what they choose to write about or what style to write in. I think that's makes the difference. I've come across some excellent stories based on either; then again, I've come across some awful ones based on either. So, I don't think it's always a storyline thing, but maybe the way in which it was written.. . .or what I like to call a maturity thing. Not neccessarily age-wise, but writing-wise (if that makes sense).

    But wouldn't it be interesting to read a ff that was based on both? Like it took place at the end of Anne 2 and picked up at the beginning of AHoD and went from there. That could be a good combo of movies and books.

  7. I'm glad that I'm not the only psychotic who checked Terreis' website.

  8. I prefer the book fics, but on occasion I have been known to also enjoy a well-written fic based on the films.
