My new idea is Artemis Fowl related, however you wouldn't need to have read the books to play it. It revolves around an exchange student (you) who is staying with the Fowls and finds out Artemis's secrets. What do you think? Would you play it?
I always have problems with fan fiction. This is partly because it actually forgoes the opportunity to create your own world. Also it means adding to somebody else's franchise for free and if what you produce is good they can just take it away from you thanks to copyright law.
I would say if you are excited about it then write it. If you want to write it there is people out there who want to read it. Besides anything you write makes you a better writer so the effort is never wasted.
Thank you! I think I'm going to do it in a way that appeals to fans of the series but is accessible to anyone, e.g. so that all necessary information will be provided because I know that not a lot of people have read the books. But thank you all for your help!
