Late and short; I'll catch up next weekend.

In ‘The erotic fan fiction of 'Slash' provides a coming-of-age tale for the social media age,’ a review for Los Angeles Times, Katie Walsh wrote In taking on this fan fic world, Liford could have gone for the cheap, stereotypical laughs, but with the nuanced performances from Marks and Johnston, the film is a respectful analysis of burgeoning sexuality, the sometimes embarrassing missteps that come along with figuring it out, and exploring that all through fiction. And, from James Roberts in Glide Magazine: Slash fiction is the kind of thing you only hear about if you’ve descended so deep into a rabbit hole of hardcore internet nerdity that you dream in meme and speak in the kind of language suitable for forming coherent thoughts in 140 characters or less. Even then, most of us only know of slash fiction as the brunt of jokes, not as something to be considered with any seriousness.

The Washington Post’s Annys Shin wrote that the paper’s review of Star Wars in 1977, though prescient, underestimated the enduring appeal of Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, not to mention the intensity of fan devotion that to this day fuels clubs of grown men and women who build “life-size” R2-D2 models, countless gigabytes of fan fiction and billions of dollars in toy sales.

For Star Observer, Matthew Wade wrote WHILE each member of British pop group Little Mix identifies as straight, there has been a proliferation of queer fan fiction written about them since they shot to stardom five years ago.

In a piece about fictional detective ‘Prodosh C. Mitter, a.k.a. Feluda’ for The Hindu, Diptakirti Chaudhari wrote A great tribute to this 50-year old legend would probably be fan fiction about his mother: a feisty student in pre-Independence Bengal getting embroiled in a story of intrigue and mystery and meeting her future husband as they both solve a case involving, maybe, the Kohinoor and the Chittagong Armoury Raid, or both.

In ‘J.K. Rowling Almost Introduced an Intriguing Weasley Cousin to the 'Harry Potter' Story’ for Teen Vogue, Greg Seals wrote Though this lost Weasley cousin didn't make it to the page, she'll no doubt live on in the hearts and fan fiction of Harry Potter fans everywhere.

Finally, for CNET, Laura Hautala wrote While you're thinking about all the accounts you have out there, ask yourself why you even have them. Are you still using that wedding planning website, five years after your nuptials? No, I didn't think so. Delete that account! Have you fallen out of the habit of posting Harry Potter fanfic on that one goofy website you loved 10 years ago? Delete that account too!
