In 'A Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o Movie Would Be the Best Thing Twitter Has Ever Done' for Vanity Fair, Yohana Desta wrote that a tweet went viral, quickly inspiring fan fiction.

In 'Short and Sweet' for The Hindu, Archana Thomas wrote Fan fiction stems from people’s interest in a particular series or film and serves as an exaggerated figment of their imagination.

From an interesting Jia Tolentino piece on Ms. Marvel for The New Yorker by G. Willow Wilson: One Friday night, she’s stuck at home writing Avengers fan fiction; her father disapproves of her going to parties as much as he disapproves of her unemployed, pious brother praying all the time.

In a piece about the POTUS that I can’t be bothered to sort out, The Washington Post’s Matt O’Brien assembled the phrase Ann Coulter fan fiction.

In a New Statesman review of Luke Kennard’s Cain, Paul Batchelor wrote The poems tell the story of a character, "Luke Kennard", preyed upon by the mysterious Cain, "Tutelary spirit of the fugitive and/heavenly advocate for fan fiction".

From Kaitlyn Tiffany on The Verge: Mac DeMarco breaks the fourth wall of celebrity, asks to see all your fan fiction.

In a piece about movie remakes and sequels for University Observer, Dylan O’Neill wrote If you go onto any social media platform, you will be inundated with fan-fiction, predictions, and all manner of franchise worship. It makes economic sense to give the fans what they want. The problem, of course, is that you’re essentially giving a fundamental part of the movie to a group of people, whose sole focus is on one small part of the original, and doesn’t factor in correctly how this change will affect the overall movie in terms of the central issues addressed.

For The New York Times, Scott Tobias wrote The question hanging over this season of "Fargo" — and over previous seasons, for that matter — is whether it transcends fan fiction and succeeds as its own distinct entity.

In an Omaha Reader review, Ryan Syrek wrote Nostalgic homages are now so perfunctory, The Fate of the Furious opens with near fan fiction about its own series.

John Boyega is a big fan of your erotic 'Star Wars' fan fiction (Sam Haysom, Mashable).

From 'Clarksville resident shares what it’s like to write for Marvel comics' in Clarksville Now: [Jacob] Rougemont began dabbling in fan fiction in high school when he created his own website with details about the Avengers characters.

In a piece about American Gods for Los Angeles Times, Meredith Woerner wrote that the show’s creators proudly point to the show’s introduction as their Monty Python fan fic moment.

In a review of CNN’s United States of America, Variety critic Maureen Ryan wrote that, in one recent episode, host W. Kamau Bell tells [professional asshole Richard] Spencer he’s going to home to write fan-fiction in which James Bond is a black man. Both of them laugh, but Spencer adds that he finds that idea “horrifying.”

The Daily Tar Heel’s Nicola McIrvine wrote about the performance of some RPF the Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers wrote about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck but the web site is horrible so I can’t tell what the piece actually says but I really hope the play’s slashy as hell.

In a review of David Bellos’s The Novel of the Century for The Sydney Morning Herald, Judith Armstrong observed that Les Miserables has engendered sequels, adaptations for radio, stage (with or without music), television, and graphic novels; it proliferates on the web, unpoliced, as "fan fiction". What [Victor] Hugo would have thought of these concessions to mass audiences is not in doubt. "I wrote it for everyone," he insisted. At all levels, for all time.

In a Fiji Times piece examining what lessons Fijian society as a whole can take from the training regime of its rugby team, Dr. Joseph Veramu wrote We also need to encourage a culture of reading. Many people are preoccupied with social media and do not have time to read. Two parents complained to me that their teenage children were preoccupied with reading from Wattpad. Wattpad is an online storytelling community where users post written works such as articles, stories, fan fiction, and poems, either through the website or the mobile app. The parents' concern was that the stories were low quality. I argued that at least they were reading something. After tiring of ephemeral literature, I am sure they would graduate to quality works.

Finally, from CNN’s Stephanie Gallman: This theater will pay you $25,000 for your Shakespearean fan fiction. I’ve got one!
