A ship, derived from relation"ship", is a fictional couple where two characters are in a romantic relationship that fans want to see. These relationships can be canon (actually confirmed in the show or real life), implied from subtle clues within shows, or downright impossible and even denied by the creators.

🔮 Ficlets, Drabbles, and One-Shots: Ficlets are stories that have fewer than 1,000 words. Drabbles have exactly 1,000 words. One-Shots are fanfics with self-containing storylines, typically chapter-length. These stories fit the bite-sized nature of Commaful very well. Oftentimes, these stories bring a nice twist and are long enough to get a plot going. Many ficlet and drabble writers on Commaful get creative with the formatting and allow the images to do some of the storytelling as well.
😂 Parody and Satire: Who doesn't love a good laugh with your favorite characters? Funny moments and parodies are some of the most popular fanfics on Commaful. Creators can utilize GIFs or even photoshop interesting images to bring out the craziness and hilarity of the story.
🎨 Fan Comics: As you may have guessed, the Commaful style lends itself perfectly to fan comics. Many comic writers and artists share their comics. Some share pane by pane and others through cool multi-pane formats.
✏️ Vignettes and Reflections: Emotions can be heightened through the page by page format. It's easy to build suspense, generate emotion, and set the pace. All of that can be heightened even more with a well-timed visual. Perhaps a GIF of a character screaming in anger at the right moment. This makes it perfect for vignettes, diary entries, and first-person reflections on key moments in books, movies, and TV shows.
📚 Multi-part fics: Many longer fics have done very well on Commaful after being broken into shorter parts. The parts tend to be shorter than a typical chapter in a novel and often do very well. The bite-sized nature allows people to take stories on-the-go and enjoy short bursts of the plot. Many writers also say it's easier to update regularly because the parts can be shorter!
