Hello, all! I am new to the board, and I am looking for some well written, Futurama, fanfic recommendations. I have found a few that I enjoyed here, on fanfiction.net and Futurama Madhouse (Where I found some EXTRAORDINARY comics too!) , but I was hoping some of you could guide be to other places where fanfic could be found.

Cheers!

Welcome to Peel.  With a very thick skin and a twisted sense of humour, you'll go far smile

There are a lot of fan fics here, but to be honest I've really just skimmed them. There are also a number of them on CGEF (gotfuturama.com, the site that actually hosts Peel).  MeatyPie is making an inside reference to a long-time Peeler who recently gave up and left forever 'cause not many people appreciated or empathised with his idea of fanfiction (or Futurama) plots.

That's a good place to start. Unfortunately, I haven't kept a list of all the good Futurama fanfics I've read while reading them as I've done with other fandoms, but having this thread is a good idea for making recommendations.

I have noticed. I already feel at home. smile

@Xanfor: Thanks. I have noticed this isn't a very fanfic heavy fandom, thus far, which is fine. With the exception of the X-Files, my interest in most other fandom's fanfic doesn't stick for too long; however, I am always curious. I love to read, but I am too cheap to pay for books, too lazy to go to the library, and have no friends to borrow books from.

I hate fanfics.  It's just written by someone who doesn't like how the show is and wants the show to be the way they want it to be.  Or writers about how they want the characters to act.  Those people just don't accept the show for what it is.  Wants it to be their way and their way only. 

It's all maladaptive daydreaming to me.

Haha, no.
A lot of fanfics aren't stupid daydreaming—they're works of art. They're people showing their creativity, experimenting with established characters and finding out what they would do in certain situations. I write fanfics because I want to know what would happen, and to do that I have to recreate their world, put them in a new place and watch them move as if they were in an episode itself.
For example, what would happen if Fry and Leela had had kids in Meanwhile? What if Bender had never been able to switch back from Coilette? What happened to Leela and Hermes while the gang was gone in The Late Philip J. Fry? These are all potentially great stories, and fanfiction writers are seeing what they can do to make them come alive.
