    Has anyone seen any worthy crossovers any where there are like 5 on FF.net and they are nothing to write home about.

    Good luck. Magicians has yet to inspire much ff. Let the show get in to another season and maybe. Which it's done better than I expected so far.

    What's it like being the most wrong person in the history of wrong? The books were trash while the show managed to salvage interesting stories and characters from them. I'm not sure that there's much fertile ground for fanfic however

    The books were alright.

    But their very nature didn't leave many open ends. We know what happens to Fillory, we know what happens to Julia, we know what happens with the hedge witches, etc. There aren't many loose ends in regards to the plot points.

    The show is good. I think, because there were some rough aspects of the books that it's handled very well.

    Like Mutton said, I doubt there will be much fanfic if ever. There just isn't much to write off of, unless its like a redo fic, or what have you. I always felt the story line progressed naturally, with no need for takebacks. Everything had a logical progression, if a bit rushed in some places.

    The very nature of their magic is super limiting as well. Considering what it relies on.
