Hey everyone and Welcome to the New Fan Fiction Central. Over two years ago our good friend and terrific writer, Black Asgard, created the Original Fan Fiction Central as a place to honor young writers and there accomplishments. Sadly Black Asgard was banned from this forum before he could see the original thread stickied. And because of that reason, we were unable to edit and change the original thread, so we created the "New Fan Fiction Central".
Now that we have covered the pleasantries, let's get down to business. Now that we are able to add/edit author's and their stories within this thread it's time to get all new authors to submit your stories here. Older authors are welcome too, all we need from you authors is to Private Message USRangerJohn or WaldoRtk7 with your story title, a short summary, and the link to the thread and we'll check it out and post it here as soon as we can.
Special Thanks and Honorarium:
Waldo and I just wanted to say thank you to our Administrators and Moderators:
Flak, JoeGraf, and Pariahman for allowing this thread to finally be stickied and putting up with us over the last year.
And we also thought it would be appropriate to honor those writers that are no longer with us:
Black Asgard, Jfab, Snowballin, Shackles23, Grey19, Kulluminatii, XxMarcusxX, and all the other unmentioned writers thank you for all your efforts in writing and making this forum a place where new writers could come flourish and grow, you won't be forgotten.
