Crossover Fictions (48)

1 Name: Chris000 : 2009-09-08 20:33 ID:dyo4iyVz

This is a genre that is very easy to screw up, but very, very rewarding if you manage to nail it just right! Who here is a fan of such as genre? Let's hear your projects and what you're planning on cooking up. I'll start it up.

I have been writing crossover stories for the better part of six years. They have been taking place in a universe where Halo and Sonic the hedgehog combines together for good.

Come on, let's seed this forum again people!

2 Name: Warper : 2009-09-08 22:01 ID:8lIiY5NJ

Oh god. I love this but god knows people do screw it up.

Personally I write mostly Naruto fics so my major fic, 'Naruto: Fox of Heaven and Hell' is a multi-crossover involving several major animes/manga.

It is also my first fanfiction, though I've removed it to make many repairs to it.

God knows I screwed it up the first time and now I hope to make it right.

Hopefully it will be as intricate as I had originally planned it to be.

cross over...hmm...well the one i'm working out is a Digimon/Battle royale story...not much going on in it though.

4 Name: Bola : 2009-09-09 04:56 ID:D+uV0xEi

Mmm... I cannot say I particularly like to read any cross over stories. I have read and written them, though. I think writers mostly fuck up in cross overs because they do not realize some fandoms simply do not fit together. They combine two totally different fandoms that have nothing in common and get a strange irrealistic mess that no one likes anymore.

Well at a basic level, real life style type stuff shouldn't interact with anime stuff.

Animation should only crossover with animation.

And even then, an animation that's just about a regular life, shouldn't interact with some of the more fantasy or sci-fi type stuff.

For Example, a bad crossover regardless of skill would be Naruto/NCIS (I'm not a big fan of NCIS anyways, but it's an example).

A good crossover depending on the writer's skill would be something like Naruto/Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

6 Name: Azmodai : 2009-09-09 08:01 ID:xUZ3vKsC

I'm a big crossover writer, all of my stories have been crossovers. I generally stick to Harry Potter/something that would fit in with the story but i have done a Harry Potter Final Fantasy Crossover.

I enjoy writing crossovers because of the challenge they present. To me it's about the challenge of blending two things together to try and bring something enjoyable out of it.

7 Name: FanGirl : 2009-09-09 09:38 ID:pg3EbIIZ

My brain-mutant-evil-child is a Cyborg 009 and Iron man crossover. If you've seen both you'd know what I mean.

8 Name: Eszie : 2009-09-09 09:58 ID:bJy7GFNo

What I like to read are cross-overs of CSI and NCIS. Those are really funny sometimes :)

9 Name: Sukari : 2009-09-09 13:06 ID:LAQ6Uw4V

Well I wrote some crossovers a while ago, and some of them got cancelled because they got too complicated. I personally am proud of my Wild at Heart/Friends and Friends/Tomb Raider crossovers though. :)

10 Name: Judaphine : 2009-09-09 16:26 ID:vO95rfA+

My very first fanfic was a 'crossover' that I TOTALLY and most ROYALLY screwed up. It was supposed to be Ranma/GTO, but I barely had any elements of GTO in there other than the location and a few token mentions of characters. I've got two more hand written crosses that I think are better by far. Another crossover I did was Ranma/Slayers. It's a lot better than my first, but I'm stuck on chapter 5.

11 Name: Chris000 : 2009-09-09 16:49 ID:dyo4iyVz

#8 I've heard a lot about those but I never really checked it out. I always wondered what would happen if you lock Horatio and Gibbs in a room. I think Gibbs would win.

12 Name: Azmodai : 2009-09-10 04:46 ID:xUZ3vKsC

i'm back again.

with my crossovers i can say the favourite of mine was a Harry Potter/Ghost Master crossover because it was easy to blend together as the Harry Potter canon already has examples of ghosts without going into much detail on what they can do.

I am also the only person that i know of to write a Harry Potter/Command and Conquer crossover (Red alert 3) i enjoyed writing it but i am thinking of pulling it and redoing it, (i'm definently pulling the prequel and redoing that in the near future)

Other crossovers i've done are a Harry Potter/Bioshock crossover, 2 Harry Potter/Warcraft crossovers, a Harry Potter/Neopets crossover which is sitting in my folder waiting for a rewrite cause i made one hell of a Gary Stu.

Infact i checked my fanfic folder and of the 50+ fanfics that i have on the go at the moment (when i get writers block i start a new idea then come back to it later) only about 4 of them are non crossovers.

13 Name: Bola : 2009-09-10 05:22 ID:D+uV0xEi

@ Chris000: Nuh-huh. Horatio'd win. Good shot. :)

14 Name: Azmodai : 2009-09-10 05:45 ID:xUZ3vKsC

as someone who can't stand Horation "LOOK I'VE GOT MAH SUNGLASSES ON I'M IMPERVIOUS!" Caine, my vote lies on Gibbs... or failing that Grissom to talk em to death :P

15 Name: Bola : 2009-09-10 07:43 ID:D+uV0xEi

:P Maybe, but even though many cannot really stand them, many make parodies of him as well. Ever seen the episode of The Simpsons in which the family's watching CSI:Miami, or Jack Bauer's impersonating of him in the newest season? smiles

16 Name: Azmodai : 2009-09-10 10:23 ID:xUZ3vKsC

I can honestly say i haven't seen them, dont really watch much evening/afternoon TV (stupid 5am shifts leave me dead on my feet) Horatio as a character wouldn't bother me as much if it wasn't for the sunglasses gimmick he seems to have picked up.

17 Name: Eszie : 2009-09-10 15:14 ID:bJy7GFNo

#11, I think too that Gibbs would win ^^ He would give Horatio a slap on his head =D
I read a few CSI; Las Vegas & NCIS cross-overs and those are
fun too. CSI and CSI; Miami cross-overs are fun too :)

18 Name: Mikel Midnight : 2009-09-11 14:50 ID:vC9nG7Bu

I do a lot of my writing on a corps of characters who inhabit alternate universes, so they can crossover with anyone anywhere ... although British-related ficts tend to predominate.

19 Name: YearOfTheKitty : 2009-09-14 12:22 ID:G+MSftYk

I love crossovers! I disagree that you should only keep certain types together (I'm personally working on a Dawn of the New World/Mortal Instruments crossover, which is a video game/book) but I do agree that they should have at least something in common. The fun part is coming up with two things that you would normally never think of together and then writing them together in a way that makes sense (not just 'homg a magic portal, let's gary-stu it all to HELL). When well-done, crossovers can be more entertaining than regular fanfics. ^^

20 Name: Acacia : 2009-09-16 10:39 ID:815LPR6M

I love reading crossovers when they are well written. @YearOfTheKitty I agree with you when you say that that you shouldn't just keep certain types together; it's always wonderful to find that fic which stands out from the rest.

I try writting crossovers but I keep screwing them up. :(

Crossovers rule, when they stand out enough and have the strength to fight to be different!

21 Name: Chris000 : 2009-09-16 10:47 ID:AyKE1wrz

Different is correct. I have read some very interesting crossovers. Not great but different crossovers.

22 Name: SpikeyGirl : 2009-09-25 12:41 ID:cbCg4S5L

I like crossovers assuming they're well done, I don't care if they're of the same type or not though. My own multi crossover series mixes anime, books, films and TV shows of different genres as well as things of my own creation and it seems to have worked well. I think it keeps things interesting and showing what kind of things can be done with a good imagination. Though seeing the same kind of crossovers done a million times does get annoying.

23 Name: Kennie : 2009-09-25 14:58 ID:X8PZtjvj

Yay! A crossover thread!

I've written nothing but crossovers for about the last ten years. At the moment I'm working on a Buffy/SG-1 crossover spanning the entire 10th season of SG-1 (mixing magic and science = fun!) On hiatus I have a Buffy/Farscape fic (sensing a theme here?) and I really need to write the last chapter of my Buffy/Enchanted drabble series.

Cross-overs can be really difficult to write because you have to get into the heads of two (or more) sets of characters and work out how they'd react to one another. Then you've got to somehow meld the mythologies together. But it's extremely rewarding when you get it right.

24 Name: Xandre : 2009-10-10 20:41 ID:F/NWlczB

Some of my character's abilities cross multiple series. For example, one of my OC's can use something akin to the Byakugan in Naruto. He's a Bleach OC. Another is that any form of spiritual power (Chakra, Reiatsu, magic, etc) are all the same thing, meaning a Shinigami could meet a Jonin and fight to their full ability in the FMA universe. It also means no one universe, at least in my eye, has complete knowledge of the powers they possess. Many crossovers have different power sources. It's easier and more logical that it be the same source, with different names and levels of understanding (like how Vauxhaul is known as Chevrolet in Brazil) It also means you don't have the problem of teaching a character from say, the Bleach universe how to use Chakra in the Naruto universe. I'd write more, but I'm shattered. It's 4:40 here. Laters!

25 Name: RPatzFan101 : 2009-10-12 07:00 ID:xLflEXPg

I have just started my first crossover, actually. But, I didn't realise it was going to be one until I actually started to write more!

Now, I'd ALWAYS wanted to do a Twilight x Night World Crossover, as I love both these series and sparkly vampires next to obnoxious purebloods (sorry, Ash Redfern!) is just too funny to pass up, but...to be safe, I think an original character or two an help you blance out. If you're good at writing, then you can make it work, but crossovers are trickier than you think. nods

26 Name: Schmo : 2009-11-02 08:08 ID:xTNK8E77

I love crossovers!!

The CSIs are NCIS are always fun. And Gibbs would win in a fight against Horatio. I think Booth and Gibbs would be very interesting to see. XD

27 Name: Beanacre0 : 2009-11-04 09:08 ID:QKoAicST

I love crossover, love reading them. I have 1 series of crossovers which are HP and Twilight, which is are Hermione x Edward. There are 3 of them and I am writing the 3rd at the moment. I also have a HP x St Trinians, a Hermione x Harry. I have a Buffy x HP which is Hermione x Spike and Hermione is Buffy's daughter. Love doing things like that.

28 Name: RayRay : 2009-11-04 09:27 ID:hXrh5WmE

Not a fan at all.

I keep them where they're supposed to be.

I don't judge people who like them, but I refuse to read on principle.

Not for me thanks haha.

29 Name: Yellow 14 : 2009-11-07 14:20 ID:ekRhPfSv

I am working on a HP/Ace Combat crossover set during the game Ace Combat zero, but it's not going up for a while yet. As for other crossovers, W.I.T.C.H/something else seems to have taken over for the most part.

30 Name: Chris000 : 2009-11-07 20:56 ID:1ILTETyQ

Now...that's going to be interesting to read!

31 Name: Iaculus : 2009-11-08 09:37 ID:ABBz8/tT

First fanfic's a really big crossover.

It contains (deep breath)... Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, an Evangelion/40K hybrid from another author's fic (a fanfiction of a fanfiction... yes), Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Haruhi Suzumiya, Full Metal Panic, and cameos for Discworld and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Also, references to everything from Aliens to the Prisoner of Zenda. I may have missed a few.

So... yeah.

32 Name: Tinyrocket : 2009-11-08 14:12 ID:7MlqDyTU

I am a true crossover writer. Through and through. Sometimes I make crossovers that make no sense but I like them anyway. My reviewers also seemed to like it. Still, I guess sometimes I could overdo it.

33 Name: Vampires!!! : 2009-11-10 10:23 ID:T0QhYN1/

I am writing a crossover fanfic about the Darren shan saga and Harry Potter! first fanfic ever! anyone interested to take a look?

34 Name: Majin : 2009-11-10 15:36 ID:yKtsDa/k

I'm a fan.

Harry Potter/Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha has a few good ones.

Ranma has a lot of great ones with not only Sailor Moon, but other old anime too.

Disgaea goes well with a lot of things, but it's not used much. There are some good ones in Naruto/Disgaea and I remember a really good (if 18+) Ranma/Disgaea one from ages back.

I dislike the Harry Potter/Naruto cross and Bleach/most things cross though. I don't think they mesh well in most cases.

35 Name: A. E. Giggle : 2009-11-11 15:06 ID:DVvQ6Syk

Yep. Love writing crossovers, but you have to work hard to get the separate universes to fit. No point doing it if you're not gunna do it properly. Twilight/HP.

36 Name: The Shadow : 2009-11-11 16:02 ID:MnkDFloK

I'm going to say that yes, Crossovers can be really good when pairing up certian verses, but just like some of you have mentioned, it can be hard fitting all the rules into place with each other. At this time, I only have one crossover, a Pokemon/Resident Evil crossover, but the story at this point is currently on hold. The RP I created teh story from however is still going strong, so that once I get back to writing the story, I'll have a guide to follow, well sort of anyway.

37 Name: ZGold : 2009-11-12 02:06 ID:c0L/t0Pw

Hmm, sounds to me like a lot of people are still using 'crossover' as the generic term for a fanfiction where two separate universes are involved. Personally a 'crossover' to me is, e.g. the crew of Stargate running around in a Final Fantasy setting. A fanfic where, e.g. the Charmed sisters live and say, Mulder and Scully also live and work (i.e. the rules of each show's universe co-exist) I would call a 'fusion', because it's a blend of the two universes rather than rules from one place and characters from another.

38 Name: Chris000 : 2009-11-13 06:23 ID:NCDZrmbN

I guess when you put it that way Gold, I guess I can refer to my series as a "fusion" as you say. It began as a crossover, but since then, these separate universes learned how to transit between them and coexist, living by each others own rules.

To be fair though, I created an alternate timeline of the Sonic universe (Slightly augmented laws of physics, more 'realistic anthros', weaponry, and looking to humans as subtle gods). There were real events, but the Xorda annihilated ALL life on Earth, leaving it to be repopulated with human colonists from an alternate universe. The Halo series was easier, as the series as we know it ends on March 3, 2553, making it easier to extrapolate what would happen in 3234-present.

39 Name: efyraa : 2009-11-21 16:15 ID:Rvwv1aYL

I like it. Makes a broader image in my opinion. Done a crossover with Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing. Just a one-shot as my school and mock exams always ruin and drain away my time and effort. But I quite like it.

40 Name: misty1986 : 2009-11-27 05:14 ID:H3jBsdiO

I love xovers if their done right. I dont like it when one genre if less written about with another. a good xover should have the plot shared 50/50. so all characters get a voice. I'm currently writing hopeless in Forks, and its a xover with buffy and twlight. I hope I do justice to the characters! take a read and let me know what you think! thanks! ;-)

41 Name: Kjelfalconer : 2009-11-27 07:51 ID:B1w79j0s

When you think about it, the whole Kingdom Hearts series is just one big crossover anyway. And such a magical one ^_^

42 Name: Ran Fan : 2010-01-15 01:13 ID:Qo7F/UmX

It seems to me like there are lots of writers and fans of crossover fics in here.

Me myself, I don't like 'em too much. As someone mentioned before, they;re incredibly hard to get right, and in my opinion very few people do get them right. If they do though, and it works, it can be spectacular.

43 Name: Wolf-Kaiserin : 2010-01-21 06:29 ID:S8SBqjA8

I'm a writer of a cross over fic, and I think it's going OK. It's based on Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus and a book series called Tales of the Otori. I don't know if anyone's read them, but they're one of the best series books ever :P anyway, although it doesn't seem like a strong match, I think it ties in quite nicely. I think as long as you only use certain elements in a cross over or be very careful, they can produce great results :) but of course, lots epically fail.

44 Name: Torie : 2010-01-21 08:55 ID:WEA2jxgL

I accidently stumbled across a cross-fic and loved it but if I still find myself not interested in them. if there is a cross over story i imediatly skroll down to the next story.

45 Name: Torie : 2010-01-21 08:56 ID:WEA2jxgL

47 Name: Elle : 2010-01-21 10:09 ID:qcRkHUBw

I very rarely read crossovers - its hard for me to find ones with two fandoms I like. But I am working on one at the moment, a Smallville/Supernatural crossover, where Dean & Sam end up in Smallville.
But yeah, you have to be careful with them to keep in mind the rules of both worlds.

48 Name: Ran Fan : 2010-01-21 14:11 ID:Lv2Itwmo

@ 47 - would that have anything to do with it being Jensen Ackles being in both shows at some point?

I love crossovers that are done well. They certainly make for entertaining reading.
