Yes, there's 30-50 feral hogs fanfiction

By Kristina Manente

Welcome to Read This Fanfiction, a weekly digest of the hottest and latest fanfics about all your favorite movies, television shows, anime, and more. Whether they're popular, heartbreaking, innovative, or just plain entertaining, here's what you should be reading!

I'm not saying I'm surprised that there's feral hog fanfiction, but I'm a little surprised there's currently only one feral hog fanfic. Unless you lived under a rock this week, the 30-50 feral hog meme took the internet by storm. The tweets were many, the laughter raucous, and the hogs arriving within 3-5 minutes. It should also come as no surprise to anyone who indulges in fanfic that the first (and currently only) fic about feral hogs is, indeed, a BBC Sherlock fic. I'm going to let it speak for itself. Now, as to the rest of you, write more meme fic.

As we forever wait for Amazon's Lord of the Rings prequel, we did get a peek at what can and cannot happen.

Andy Serkis is officially directing the Venom sequel, and now we can prepare for more of the fascinating relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom. This hilarious story is about Eddie, his alien symbiote, and daytime television. As well as other very cute things.

"One-Way Ticket" by& tree

The Abyss is 30 years young this month, and what better way to celebrate the underwater cinematic spectacle than by reading some good old-fashioned fluff fic about what happened once the credits roll? Lindsey and Virgil deserve a happily ever after, anyway.


"In Love With a Star" by NanakiBH

The world of Vocaloids may be quite foreign to many of you, but the most popular one known as Hatsune Miku is a hologram singing sensation who now is getting her own VR game. There is a large cast of characters in the Vocaloid world, and this story about one being in love with Miku is both precious and interesting from an idol perspective.

"Trip to India" by Cherrydragon26

Emma: A Victorian Romance is getting an English dub. The successful Kickstarter to produce an HD dub last year met its stretch goal for the second season as well. Right Stuf is now in the process of making it a reality. If you haven't checked out this lovely anime, do yourself a favor and do so, and then read this charming fic about Monica and Hakim.
