The idea, WiPs are abandonned all the time for many different reasons, and hence some great stories are never finished. What I envisage is a comm where an author or someone who loves a fic and has gained the author's permission may come and post a fic, or a link to a fic that either the author will never finish or doesn't mind others having a go at finishing, so that others may adopt it. Adoption may involve rewriting what exists and then continuing, or simply continuing from the point the author left off, with full credit to the original of course.
It might even be an idea to set up a volunteer force to trawl places like fanfiction.net for WiPS that seem to be abandonned to ask the authors if they would be willing to put them up for adoption. But that's probably getting way ahead of myself ::g::.
So does this idea have potential or is it a waste of space? :) I'm thinking of calling it something like hp_adopt_fic - The Harry Potter Fanfiction Adoption Agency or adopt_fic - The Fanfiction Adoption Agency, depending of if it is fandom specific or not. If you have suggestions for name please feel free to comment.
I would be very grateful if you would be so kind as to fill in the poll and/or comment. Thanks.
