Reading fanfic and people use 'may be' verses 'maybe'.

It may be this.

Maybe.



Maybe is an adverb: Maybe we can visit the king.
May be is an auxiliary verb + linking verb: We may be able to visit the King.

The adverb was derived from the verb phrase in the 15th century:

Maybe I'll see you later = It may be (that) I'll see you later.

In other words I read way too many fanfics that have characters say "May be," instead of "Maybe,"
