Scooby-Doo and the 13th Ghost
Just wanted to share a little bit of exciting news here regarding some fanfiction I've written for anyone who's interested! A couple of weeks ago, I was talking with someone in the comments on here about the fact that there's not really much (if any) 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo fanfiction that doesn't just completely rewrite the entire series. Given so many fans were dissatisfied with Scooby-Doo and the Curse of the 13th Ghost's implication that the events of the series may not have even happened, it's surprising that there isn't a lot of fanfiction out there that has the gang catching the thirteenth ghost that they never were able to in the original series.
This (and my disappointment that they never caught the last ghost in the original show) inspired me to write a fanfic of my own that concludes the series. My biggest problem personally with Curse of the 13th Ghost is that the tone felt incredibly inconsistent with the original series. I had at first considered writing a multi-chapter fanfic like the three previous stories I'd written, but upon thinking about it, I thought the best way to do justice to the ending of this series would be to write a single one-off story that has the gang catching the 13th ghost just like they would have in an episode. Had they been able to catch the 13th ghost in the series, I don't think the finale would have been a super high stakes or cinematic level of quality. I imagine it'd probably be about the same as the premiere, so that's the tone I strived for with this fanfic as well. It's kind of a simple little story, but approaching it like I was writing a regular episode of the series seemed like the best way to correct what Curse of the 13th Ghost did wrong, in my opinion. The finished product ended up being around 7,000 words.
The fanfic is now published on Fanfiction.net, AO3 and the ScoobyAddicts forum, if you're interested in checking it out. Unlike my previous stories which have been rated T, this story is rated K for all audiences. I hope you enjoy the story if you read it!

Oh wow! Didn't expect to see something like this at least anytime soon, this is really cool. We had that discussion less than 2 weeks ago and since then you already finished a 7k word fanfic – that is some serious dedication, inspiration and skill. Obviously I haven't read it yet, but I will later this month since I won't have much free time for a week or so right now.

I seem to recall watching maybe one or two episodes of The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo when i was younger but that was a long time ago.

Give 13 Ghosts a full watch if you haven't, it's a pretty good show!

Agreed, 13 Ghosts is a great show and I'd definitely recommend it.
