Delanee Hawkins told readers of The Mac Weekly (Macalester) that [BDSM] came to mainstream popularity after the terribly-written Twilight fanfiction Fifty Shades of Grey series.

According to Robert Kapps in WIRED, Industrial Light & Magic's John Knoll had, over the years, daydreamed his own [Star Wars] fan fiction.

Zach "Ass-hat" Schonfeld wrote Newsweek, which gained notoriety in the 1990s as a news weekly you could find on dentist office waiting room tables below Highlights and Zoobooks magazines, took the extraordinary step this week of publishing President Hillary Clinton fan fiction for The Federalist.

Harry Potter, Cursed Child, Broad City, Grey’s Anatomy, Fantastic Beasts, Kate Middleton, Prey, Sherlock Holmes, Game of Thrones, Roy Orbison, Jane Austen )

For Impact Magazine (University of Nottingham), Matteo Everett noted most lit crit is hearsay, or unnecessarily long and drawn-out interpretations, which are essentially over-elaborate reviews bordering on fanfiction written by ‘art critics’ who are only in the field because they failed to become an author themselves.

In 'Subtext bites: The pitfalls of dishonesty in realtionships' for Willamette University Collegian, Ariadne Wolf wrote It’s one thing to watch characters in a show sigh at one another longingly, then run away for some manufactured nonsensical reason. That is the kind of thing that my fanfiction-addicted high school-aged self could really get behind. It’s really not nearly so pleasant in real life.

For The Washington Post, Christopher Ingraham engaged in some electoral fan fiction.

Finally, Searching for John Hughes author Jason Diamond told Chicago Reader’s Aimee Levitt that People are writing fan fiction about [Home Alone kid Kevin McCallister], like how he became a serial killer, and I'm like, "Yeah! Totally plausible!"
