One thing that I have noticed in particular with Star Wars fan fiction is that the Original Character stories aren't very popular. It seems the audience for fan fiction are much more interested in actual characters from Star Wars. To me, it really just depends on the quality of the story if I read it or not. But I like authors who want to step out and try making original characters, not relying on already created characters. So which do you prefer? Also, why do you think OC's don't seem to be as popular?
