Sorry to be bringing in more questions, but how do you like crossovers?

I'm considering one with a celebrity most of the Hanson fan base will probably see as uncool, but I'm just wondering how many people have written them and how they are received.

Crossovers don't dominate the genre, but there are various stories where at least one other celeb (usually one tied somehow to Hanson) are featured.

I would say write what you feel you need to--if it's a good story, people will read it regardless of who the characters are :)

Yeah I've noticed Hanson related celebrities are more commonly accepted.

I've written a couple. Most recent was a crossover with Firefly and 30 Seconds To Mars that I'm inordinately proud of and that other people seem to like quite a bit. So I'd say they're pretty well received. As dontstop_menow said hanfic isn't dominated by them - I don't know if it's because RPF might be hard to crossover with fictional fandoms, or if it's because some of us are intimidated by them. It's really hard to say.

I think you should give it a go. I often read crossovers even if I'm only familiar with one of the fandoms featured - if it's well-written and has a solid plot, then I don't think it will matter if the celebrity in question is 'uncool' by fandom standards. :)

I've written Hanson/Saw and Hanson/Legend Of The Seeker. Both have had quite a few hits, but no comments so I can't tell which fandom they're from. I've been working on a Hanson/Supernatural but not enough to post yet.

But I'm loving that you keep asking questions. It's fun, and it's keeping the community active! Everyone's here to talk fic after all ;)

Yeah it does seem like getting to know the community better.

I have a Hanson/TWD and Hanson/OUAT crossovers so I say go for it.
