FANDOM


On the Minecraft Fanon Wiki, multiple story formats have woven themselves into the woodwork of the fan stories used here. Most stories generally follow one of these formats. Hi, I'm Sad My skin head 16, and I'll take you through them.

Serialized

The serialized style, the second most popular, picked first on the list due to my own bias towards it, is the most reader-friendly of the styles. Serialized works are released chapter by chapter, each on their own independent page. They are generally preceded by a title format of a sort and a link to the previous chapter, and ended with a link to the next.

Works in this form can be released at any rate the author so chooses, and generally are more friendly to the eye than the behemoth format, so long as the chapters do not exceed a comfortable length. Fallout: Terracraftia's pages often fall under that category, with 14 of the 50 longest pages on the wiki being F:T chapters (as of 4/26/2017).

Notable works in this format:

Behemoth

The behemoth style, undoubtedly the most popular, creates a very large page upon which all chapters of a story rest. Though keeping organization easy, this can be daunting to some readers due to the sheer page length. Aftermath Minecraftia and Destruction Of Minecraftia, the largest works on the site bytewise, are noted to be a combination of this format and the subsequent one, weaved canon, in that both are made up of multiple Behemoth-format stories.

Works in this form generally rank high on Special:LongPages due to their size by nature. They are quite useful for compensating setting records and showing off, often taking lofty titles due to their conglomerated chapters.

Notable works in this format:

Weaved canon

The weaved canon style, the most sparingly used, takes the form of multiple unconnected stories spinning together a canon much like a spiderweb. Weaved canons are generally quite large, and can take a while for readers to uncover. I still haven't finished reading DoM. Aftermath Minecraftia and Destruction Of Minecraftia are both noted to be a combination of the former style, Behemoth, and this one in the way that they are weaved canons created from Behemoth-format stories.

Works in this form have no obligation of timescale, as any story can be added to the weaved canon at any canon time or place.
