Okay, this one is pretty self-explanatory: 

John keeps mentioning amazing Swoodliypooper fanfiction -- where is it? 

Seriously, I've never stumbled upon any of that, so if anyone has fic recs... post them here!

    Yes. YES. This question. I read the fic a while back but then my computer had to be wiped and I completely lost the link. Please tell me somebody has it out there in the forums?!
    You can just call me Elle, it sounds much friendlier~!

    Wow. I spent the majority of my day reading it. To borrow a phrase from my favorite author: FRENCH THE LLAMA! It's SOO GOOD. It made me have so many feels. Does anyone know the author's twitter or something? Cause I want to congratulate her on her awesomeness. haha

    At LeakyCon, John admitted that he himself had anonymously published some John Green fanfic, as well as some from other fandoms, so I really want to know where that is. Punishment idea?

    I love me some double John Green lovin' but here is the important question: Is there any fic for Voluptuous/Alice? Because I could get behind that.

    "Our First Kiss" was soooo sweet. I was "aaww"ing for about ten minutes after I finished it. Thanks for those!

    I searched for "Swindon" on Archive of our Own and found a few more (which I haven't read yet): http://archiveofourown.org/works/search?utf8=✓&work_search[query]=swindon
  • Don't panic! It's on fanfiction.net! If you search Swindon it comes up. I think it's called "Journeys Begin in a Lovers Meeting". Trust me it's amazing!

    Do you think John Green may have written any of the fanfics in the links mentioned above?

    Even as that panel at leakycon was going on, I was on my ipod trying to find his fanfiction.net account. I don't think any of the linked ones are his; the accounts they're associated with all have written a bunch of other fics relating to shows/etc I'm p sure John doesn't watch. Unless he gets someone to post his fics on their account, which seems sort of unlikely. Also I sort of remember him saying something like he has his own account. The context of him admitting this was that it was part of a Truth or Lie-type game that a bunch of authors played, and he said it was a truth. So. It may be out there or he may be a BIG LIAR!!!

    If the account @valerie2776 is talking about really exists, John has done a good job of hiding himself because we've spent way to much time searching for it one night, and if anyone could find it it would be valerie"queen of the internet"2776 lol

    Dang, I wish someone could find that account. I feel like he's mentioned writing fic about his own books too? So maybe that's a clue to go on.
    I've seen speculation that he has a "personal" tumblr because he talks about being on tumblr way more than he actually blogs at fishingboatproceeds. I feel like he probably just lurks/looks at his dash way more than he blogs, but who knows.
    At one point I knew the password to definitelynotjohngreen.tumblr.com (his list of terrible discarded book ideas) but I've forgotten or it's changed - kind of like fanfic though.

    I didn't want to jump in at first because I was afraid that the comment I wanted to make would come off as self-promotion. Someone talked me into posting anyway, so I'm doing so with the caveat that I'm really not just plugging my stuff. Honestly, I'm not.

    So, with that said. I write for the blog Nerdfighter Football Club. One of the regular features we do is match reports for games. This is the one I did for the Wimbly Wombly's FA Cup Final last week: http://nerdfighterfc.tumblr.com/post/77749263442/match-report-afc-wimbledon-manchester-city-fa

    I never really thought of the stuff I do as fanfiction, but several people who read the blog. John explicitly called it fanfiction when he reblogged that post. 

    I bring this up because I couldn't find Swoodilypooper or Wimbly Wombly fanfic for a long time, and I wonder now if maybe that was just because I had a really narrow definition of what fanfiction is or could be.
