We are excited to announce the launch of Shur’tugal Fan Fiction, the ultimate archive of Inheritance Cycle fan fiction stories! Aspiring writers and Inheritance fans now have an outlet to read, write, and enjoy stories by fans, set within Eragon’s universe. Itching for Book 5? You can enjoy fan-written stories set within Alagaësia while you wait!
It is important to remember that fan fiction is not endorsed by Christopher or his publisher. Christopher has not and will not read these stories, which are creative works of non-canon fiction, written and released by fans.
“Fan fiction” is a term used to describe stories written by fans set within the world of a particular book, movie, or television series. Hundreds of fans have written their own stories set within Alagaësia, varying from alternate series endings, fan takes on Book 5, prequels, dream pairings between favorite characters, and more.
Over twenty stories are now available on Shur’tugal Fan Fiction, totaling 205 chapters and over 550,000 words! We encourage aspiring writers and Inheritance enthusiasts to contribute their own stories. If you don’t fancy yourself a writer, there are many stories for you to read, rate, and enjoy!
Our first featured story is Wyrda by Galinor:
This fan story, aptly named “fate” in the Ancient Language, deals with the post-Inheritance fate of Eragon and the new crop of Riders as they find and establish a new home. The story shows us a fan’s interpretation of Eragon and Saphira’s training for new dragons and Riders, and the journey of new dwarf and Urgal Riders as they adjust to their new roles as the first Riders from their respective races.
Wyrda takes the reader back to familiar places, like Carvahall, and to unknown places like Du Skulblaka Ramr (Stronghold of Dragons). Wyrda is a rich, detailed fan fiction that takes readers on an adventure through the Inheritance Cycle’s already vast world and even expands on it.
Fan fiction stories are not endorsed by Christopher Paolini or his publishers. Christopher has not and will not read them. These stories are fan-written, separate from the Inheritance Cycle, and will have no impact on future stories written by Christopher. Enjoy them, but please keep this disclaimer in mind as you do so!
