NEW FRERARD FIC CHALLENGE
please read the rules under ‘read more’ and reblog this - the more people informed the more fanfic!
And they all lived happily ever after.
Most of us would probably roll our eyes at that, right?
Nowadays stories with complex plots, struggling characters and tragic endings are often highly praised. And yes, there are many great stories out there that have open and tragic endings. However as much as we love some angst, there is also something powerful in the simplicity of a fluff fic that often gets dismissed as being ‘Trashy Romance’.
Fluff brings happiness, even on a miserable, rainy day. It’s a genre that we get asked about the most here on Frerardhub and that’s because, though some of us may not admit it, we love a cute, slushy romance story. Fluff is a genre that is sought by many, for the romantic unison of our one true pairing encapsulated in an uplifting and heart-warming universe. What could be better in a story?
There is also another ingredient to add to the caldron that makes fluff all the more magical – and that is humor.
There is a reason why Jane Austen was and still is one of the most popular authors of all time, despite all her stories having predictably happy and conclusive endings, and that is because she used comedy.
Similarly, in bandom the classic, notable writers such as Bexless became so popular mainly for their wonderfully complex plots. But those authors also used humor, which made their work all the more popular.
In all, romance and comedy are two things made for each other.
So calling all you hopeless romantics out there – it’s time for Cupid to prepare his love arrows as Frank and Gerard fall in love with each other over, and over again in all your stories, and live happily ever after! Because the great thing about fiction is that you can make that happen.
The sky’s the limit! But before you put your wings on and stock up on love arrows - there are some rules.
Let’s make Aphrodite proud; we want as much work submitted to us as possible, so reblog this and inform anyone whom you think will be interested!
If you have any questions about the challenge you can go to our ask. We will make a tag for the challenge so people can keep up to date with the news. We will also make a PDF with the challenge rules so you can download the rules or print them off.
