If you’re on Alien-Covenant.com, you’re probably a diehard fan of Alien: Covenant and a bit of an internet geek. You might also be the type of person who reads Alien galaxy fan fiction. If you haven’t yet checked out any of the fan fiction, you should. There’s some very entertaining and cool stuff if you dare to read.

The characters and storylines inhabiting Alien: Covenant and the open-ended nature of the ongoing film series inspire many of us to channel our inner Ridley Scotts and imagine what it would be like if we directed the movies. Until the promised sequel to Alien: Covenant arrives, indulging in fan fiction may be the best means for us to get our alien fix. It’s also a great way to expand the universe we know from the film and explore undeveloped ideas and themes.

If you’re wondering where you can find Alien: Covenant fan fiction or submit your own content, fear not, there are many sites out there. That’s the good news.

One of the best is fanfiction.net. It’s a site solely dedicated as a platform for the writing and creation of fan fiction. There are some great search and browse features on this site that allow you to find content by movie or show title, genre, character name, type of story, and story length. You can even find crossover fan fiction where the characters and story from two or more movies/franchises are combined into a single universe. Alien: Covenant meets The Hangover anyone? In the fan fiction world, Walter can just as easily be a super high roller android in Vegas and the watchful monitor of the Covenant ship.

To serve our Alien galaxy fix, for example, fanfiction.com hosts over 100 stories taken from Alien: Covenant and a whopping 400 more related to Prometheus. And another fantastic resource is the site archiveofourown.org, which has more than 200 tagged fan fiction pieces for Alien: Covenant and nearly 300 for Prometheus.

When you consider the size of the Alien galaxy, from the original movies to the Ridley Scott prequels and all the video games, there’s definitely no shortage of material to inspire highly developed fan fiction stories.

Many of these stories spend time exploring the characters’ backgrounds and emotions in-depth. The translation from film to prose gives more scope for studying characters’ internal thoughts and monologues, which naturally heightens the interest in playing with their relationships and ambitions.

Since both Alien: Covenant and Prometheus are delved into the morality of the character David, there is an obvious appeal for fan writers to explore his ethics and morals in greater detail than the film running times allow.

As humanity draws closer in real life to a co-existence and partnership with robots, fan fiction of the Alien galaxy can give us a glimpse into how we may interact with androids. And though it will likely be quite a while until androids can function as caregivers for humans the way that Walter looks after the sleeping colonizers aboard the Covenant, it may not be long until we are forced to forge relationships with androids. Those that ponder these thoughts via fan fiction might be the best equipped to guide us when that time comes.

You can currently purchase Alien: Covenant on Digital HD, Blu-Ray and DvD. Fans looking to save can get movie DVD vouchers from Argos.co.uk.
