I haven’t paid much attention to the Fan Fiction section recently, but I thought, to idle the time, I’d post a chart of the top views of CBN Fan Fiction and update it once every 4 weeks, Sunday night being the start of the week.
The top views for stories published in 2014 were:
2541 NEVER THE DEATH Volante
608 ROGUE HUNTER Caesar004
601 A WHISPER OF LOVE, A WHISPER OF HATE tdalton
196 THE WAITING GAME AndyPandy88
175 SKULL & BONES Double Naught Spy
An honorable mention must go to ROYAL GAMBIT by Harry Fawkes which has been an ongoing project since 2012. It currently has 4242 views, but approx. half of those came before the 2014 updates. I do not have accurate figures, but approx. 2121 views would place Mr. Fawkes in 2nd position.
The overall viewing figures, utilizing the first page of the Fan Fiction section:

This data has hardly altered in the last twelve months. Most of the titles, with a few exceptions, were all here at the start of 2014. Can anyone break into the magic first page this year?
