Title: Good fanfics
Post by: goldie3 on March 24, 2017, 01:21:13 PM
About 5-6 years back, I searched out quite a few good fanfics of hardy boys?

1. https://m.fanfiction.net/s/3422702/1/Enemy-of-the-State

One of the best fanfics I've read, unfortunately incomplete.

2. https://m.fanfiction.net/s/1112787/1/

By the same author, again incomplete.

3. https://m.fanfiction.net/u/322808/nightwalker3

Has 2-3 amazing HB fics, but must warn, they are death fics

4. https://archiveofourown.org/users/everythingneedsrevision/pseuds/everythingneedsrevision

Another pretty decent author

I like number four, she's pretty good. I've got one going with them as ATAC agents, but with Casefile theme. There's been some new fic on FFN the past few days due to the HDA closing down. Check out the Hardy Boys/ Nancy Drew category again on FFN.

I will just briefly say this on fanfiction. I enjoy it in general- some of it is quite good. On the other hand, I've read some that is quite bad too. (Just speaking in general terms here- not necessarily about The Hardy Boys.) However, in the case of The Hardy Boys, there are so many official books in the series, I feel no need or desire to read fanfiction efforts. (Though I'll admit the allure of resolving loose ends does make it interesting and I feel like I may have read one years ago dealing with a return of Iola Morton [obviously set in the Casefiles universe.])  In general though, if I read fanfiction, it's usually because I'm interested to see a crossover pairing that never happened in the existing material it's based on or because I've exhausted the existing material and I'm just wanting to see more of the characters I love. (This is particularly true in the case of many of my favorite short-lived TV shows or movie series.) :) 8)

I'm very particular about the HB and ND fanfics I read, they have to be written respectfully by those who know and like the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew characters. Sadly, not everyone does that. :( With fanfic, I like to read more stories that are like the books. I haven't found much on fanfic.net, and stopped looking there (I didn't want to sort through the garbage to find a diamond. :P) Thanks very much for the warning, goldie3. I don't like death fics and have no desire to read them. I like survival, it's exciting and inspiring. 8) There's only one place where I can recommend all of the fanfics Hardy and Drew Mysteries blog (https://hardyanddrewmysteries.wordpress.com), there are maybe about 12 on there so far, and all complete. 8) :)
