From Jeremy Binckes in Salon: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s some fan fiction about Donald Trump’s sex life.

For New Statesman, Deborah Cameron wrote the internet was once conceptualised as an “information superhighway”, a vast and instantly accessible repository of useful stuff. But the highway was a one-way street: its users were imagined as consumers rather than producers. Web 2.0 changed that. Writers no longer needed permission to publish: they could start a blog, or write fan fiction, without having to get past the established gatekeepers, editors and publishers. And this also freed them to deviate from the linguistic norms that were strictly enforced in print – to experiment or play with grammar, spelling and punctuation.

The Upstart Brooklyn Label Crafting ‘Fashion Fanfiction’ (Véronique Hyland, New York Magazine).

In a review of Carrie Fisher’s The Princess Diarist for The Wake, Gabby Granada wrote Spoilers aside—the focal point of the book, Harrison [Ford] and Carrie’s relationship, is more complex, intriguing, and turbulent than our imaginations assumed. “Carrison,” as she lovingly and jokingly refers to the two of them, is a fanfiction dream come true—all without an ounce of fabrication.

For Variety, Todd Spangler wrote While one of 20th Century Fox’s marketing stunts for “A Cure for Wellness” — involving fake news stories planted across the web — blew up in its face, the studio also spread fiction of a more traditional sort across Facebook to promote the movie. The studio worked with fan-fiction site Wattpad to enlist writers to craft stories inspired by the thriller, about a mysterious wellness center in the Swiss Alps. Unlike with the fake-news campaign, for which Fox apologized on Thursday, the Wattpad promos are clearly labeled as a “Cure for Wellness” tie-in.

According to Vicky Mochama in Toronto Metro, This first meeting [of Justin Trudeau and Don] won’t have the fan fiction quality of the Obama-Trudeau relationship. For those who ship Trubama, there will be no Trudump.

For The National, Pat Kane wrote that Doctor Who, over time, turns one into a fan-fiction writer, over-investing in its success.

From 'Library professor casts away nerves before TEDx event' by Paige Brown for Kent Wired: Marianne Martens, assistant professor of library and information sciences, has been eagerly preparing for the presentation she will give at the first Kent State TEDx event on Feb. 18. Martens will be speaking about fan-fiction and the popular “Harry Potter” website Pottermore in particular.

Dave Rudden told Irish Independent’s Kim Bielenberg I used to write reams of Warhammer fan fiction but my laptop died a non-recoverable death and I lost 80,000 words. I decided then I should stop writing fan fiction - because it wasn't a career - and I should write original work from then on.

Finally, in 'Dispatches from Boskone 54, Day 1,' the Boston University News Service shared that “The Harry Potter Effect” offered fans an hour of rehashing their favorite aspects about the Harry Potter universe, including the books, movies, fan fiction and Pottermore.

(There were also a bunch of references to Fifty Shades's origin, but none were particularly interesting.)
