I discovered that C&M was a Fan-Fiction series based on the lives of Chandler and Monica after Friends had ended. The pilot was brilliant. Need I say more? I was immediately hooked and made a date for episode 2. The series just got better and better, and after Dan wrote Clinton & Monica, I think it was, I decided to start up a Ross and Rachel FanFic series, with every confidence that it would be a success.
And it was! Now, with 8,000 visitors in 8 months, I'm the second most visited FanFic site in existence! But, I willingly admit that C&M has a lot more fans that R&R but that doesn't deter me in the least. I have much respect for Dan and his FanFic writing is excellent. However, we must not forget all the other FanFic sites that have appeared. Rachel & Ross by Tiffany Clark has had a good response and so has Beyond Friends: Chandler & Rachel. All these FanFic writers, including myself, have an enormous task and if I do say so myself we do a pretty good job. Of all the many Feedback forms I've received only 1 has been of serious criticism. People do disagree with plots and episodes and they have every right to do so, but please remember that writing upto 50-60kb of solid text is not easy. Just ask the Friends writers!
I hope you all enjoy reading the FanFic that is on the Net!
