I guess I should've said, when it comes to slash pairings, it's usually John with Paul, and Ringo with George. Clearly, McLennon is the bigger of the two. My apologies for not making that clear in my previous comment. 

 It's okay, I had fun with the piechart. :-D

Any interracial Beatles fan tics that people can recommend? I've written three completed stories with that theme. I'd liked to read, more those stories are hard to come across. The ones that I have found are usually left unfinished or I don't like them. 

You could write McYeezus. ;-)

Ha! Me too. And if it's as I have inferred it to be, I don't really want to know. ahdn_paul_01hearta-hard-days-night-john-3

Not all fanfiction is romance, there are quite a few gen fics that are quite wonderful.

I am reading With Strings Attached and it is a sci fy fic about the Beatles on another planet.

I have also found plenty of other gen fics that are fairly good.

Oh, yes, that was me having Photoshop fun again. Now that I've taken a graphics design course, there'll probably be more of that. :-D

Your meme made me laugh SO hard. And I normally object to using unnecessarily emphatic language. But it's FUNNY! a-hard-days-night-john-6

I have tried writing fanfiction but however innocent I try and make them they always end up slushy and slashy. Guess I'm just an ol' romantic. heart

I hang around Tumblr and get my Beatles ff fix from there.  There's some quite good ones. I've found it difficult to find good stories on other sites. One story I quite liked reading I can't find anymore! (Don't you hate it when that happens? ahdn_paul_01)

That's where I got the inspiration. I had a hard time finding the photo without the text. But now that I have, I like the idea that I can keep having Paul yell at Nancy every time the internet flummoxes him. ;-D

I would but a link of it would end up being posted somewhere as an example of bad/perverse Beatles fanfiction. I've already had that happen to me once. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I've looked around there I'm sure the story I lost was either a Livejournal or wordpress. 

Does Fanfic have Beatles fic? I thought Ficwad was the only one with a celebrities/real people category?

FF.net has Beatles fics hiding in Across The Universe . Deviant art and archive of our own are places. I look pretty much everywhere to find my Beatles fanfic fix

Oh my gosh! I never thought about looking there! That's a little treasure trove isn't it? Devientart is very hit or miss. Maybe it's me being a bit of a literature snob but when they do the stories in "script format" I find it hard to read. Archive of our own is good too! I keep hitting unfinished from over a year ago fics which is sad, some of them are really good!

I haven't read much Beatles fanfic (or fanfic in general really), but I'm interested in getting into it more. Can anyone recommend some particularly good ones about George? Doesn't matter if they're het or slash.

The only thing that's bothered me with some fics is how OTT people can be in trying to capture the Liverpudlian accent/slang.

A really great starting point is anything by dasliebchenkind. Her stories are well written, and include a variety of pairings. You might like her George centered story 'True Love Ways', a straight forward romance, about George falling in love with a girl, during a trip to the States to visit his older sister. 

Another story you might like is one of mine is Words Of Love. George falls hard for young black woman who is in a girl group who is one of the supporting acts during the Beatles Christmas show.

Thanks! I really like how you based a fanfic on George and Estelle Bennett. I've always found their relationship really interesting and wish there was more information about it. I just remember an article Estelle wrote once, but it was from the 60's so she couldn't be fully honest.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a great deal of information about George and Estelle's relationship. I'm curious to know how it developed, how serious it might've been, and why it came to an end. You really should check out dasliebchenkind's stuff if you haven't already. She has another George story on her site 'Sighs and Whispers', that's more racy, but you might enjoy that one as well.
