I enjoy writing fanfic, in fact I think it's what helped me hone my skills in writing. I would never, however, try to bundle and sell it to the public - that universe belongs to someone else no matter my "contributions".

Now, there have been several authors able to leverage publishing careers based off a fanbase from fanfiction (Cassandra Clare, Holly Black and Sarah Rees Brennan [HP fandom] spring to mind) but even they never tried (to my knowledge) to make any money off the fandom stories themselves.

So no, if your intent is to sell fanfiction on a site like Amazon then I'm afraid it's illegal without express (preferably written) consent of the author, publisher, game developer etc and anyone who has a stake in the existing franchise. Aka, not gonna happen.
