!Rules to follow if you want better stories!
AU stories: When writing an AU, that doesn't mean that you can just write yourself or your friends in and use the characters' names to make it an AU so that you'll get more views than you would on fictionpress. Make the characters In character, AU is just an alternate universe, not alternate characters. Don't try to make the characters musical if they aren't musical in the books. Especially if you want to make them singers when they say specifically in the book that they can't sing cough Max from MR cough.
M rated stories: Do NOT make the characters sluts at fourteen or whatever age they are in the books. Times have changed from when it was considered okay. Make the characters at least 18 years old. I don't read these stories, but you can tell in the summaries that they aren't legal age. And, please, if the character's aren't gay, don't make them gay. *Shudder*

Here is a condensed, easily-accessible guide to writing a compelling and popular Fanfic!
Hopefully, this will help to redefine the ten basic "rules" and allow more excellent stories to emerge and satiate the growing need in the Community.
So, let us begin:
1. Know How to Write a Story
It may sound basic, but most stories lack the underlying structure on which a tale is based upon. Without this mold most stories will fail spectacularly, quickly losing readers to boredom or confusion, the writer's worst enemies.
All good stories have six essential parts:
This is the beginning of the work, usually it introduces the characters (although names aren't a requirement) and the general theme and tone for the story. It can last for anything from a paragraph
How to Write a Fanfiction: Rules and TipsRules on How to Create a FanfictionEspada-Kitsuki
There are two procedures in which to write a fanfiction.
The first procedure is a standard, basic format and step-to-step guide. As a beginner, it is important for you to try and practice this procedure.
1—Starting the Process:
Pick a movie, book, comic, video game, manga, or anime to write for. There are other types of entertainment, but use some of the more popular ones as your stepping stone to being able to write for more complicated things. The chosen item does not have to be something you are at least somewhat fond of. In this example, we’ll use anime.
2 (optional)—Choosing the Genre:
Choose a genre for your fanfiction. For example: horror, adventure, romance, science fiction. The genre can fit in one or more categories.

1. Intelligence is required. No matter how interesting or humorous a plot you may have, it is always better to read a well-written, intelligible fiction than a thrown-together piece of junk riddled with spelling/grammatical mistakes.
2. Plot is important. There are such things as PWP's (see PWP section), but other than that, plot is what really makes a story. What is happening is what makes the reader go on and want to read more.
3. Creativity is a must. No one wants to read the same thing that they have seen from 50 other writers. Try to be original, and if you see an idea you really like, improvise it a little without copying it outright.
