I like both, but tend to favor originals more. There's not a whole lot of fandom rps that catch my eye, mostly because most of the ones out there are from series I just don't care about. If I join a fandom rp it's usually HP, SAO (I barely watched it but the setting is good), Rune Factory, Persona, etc. There's also Log Horizon, which I've had zero luck outside of the old main (and long dead) site.
It's also harder to do some of the things I'd want to do on a fandom site, and I'd rather not join, say, a TrueBlood site just to play a vampire, ya know? Plus it's fun to see what people come up with on their own.
Conversely, fandom sites are nice because you can jump right in and acquaint yourself with the site's systems if you're already familiar with the series. I'm actually on more fandom sites right now, to help me get back into rping w/o overwhelming myself.
if we're going one hundred percent honest, i almost always go for the fandom rp with an original twist over everything else and here's why:
Generally the lore is pre-established and I don't have to drill the staff team for info that might not be covered in threads but i want to know and I don't have to read 50 threads on stuff either which if I'm not in the mood to read won't be done any time soon. It's familiar and easy to jump right into.
But with an orginal twist that allows me and the other players to make it our own thing, turn it into a new story that goes beyond the one we fell in love with and that we can be attached to in a whole new way.
This also gives way, in my experience to a greater chance at getting a core community group built up. Not only do you see people flocking to their favorite fandoms but often its the same people which helps to further the community strength as you get started. This also offers some familiarity amongst the people on your site as they have a clear common ground and it's easy to get to know each other when you have a topic starter literally built into the site.
So while I find myself admiring original sites at the end of the day those with a fandom or inspired element are more likely to get me to step in and keep me for the long run because it's easy to jump in and get involved and find people to make it worth your while to stay.
I think I'm the same as Endless in that I like fandoms with original twists. Most of the time (even for my FCs/guilds on games xD), a fandom title ("Rune Factory!" "Final Fantasy!" "Suikoden!") will catch my attention far quicker than an original one (which I may glaze over). However, I've definitely been on amazing original sites as well.
However, be it fandom or original, I'm extremely picky. It's why I'm only on one site /laments/
I enjoy both fandom and original boards, but am more alternative universe oriented. My knowledge of the former is dimmed, given how I've developed. Popular subcultures like Naruto, Pokémon, etc., are vapid to me.
