For Spectrum News, Victor Diaz wrote The coming of age drama is about young author whose erotic fan fiction creates unexpected comic-con experiences. For The New York Times, Ben Kenigsberg described the main character as a 15-year-old who writes erotic fan fiction. Village Voice’s April Wolfe wrote Writer-director Clay Liford, in his endearing comedy Slash, explores these identity crises through the burgeoning world of fan-fic Comic-Con nerds as they face the real-life and online hardships of being a teen today. And, for Film Journal, John DeFore wrote Real-world fanfic enthusiasts may appreciate the attention, but most could probably hatch a more involving tale in the time it takes to scratch "Kirk + Spock 4 Evr" into a wooden bench.

In a piece about the importance of social media to teens for The Washington Post, Julia Carpenter shared On the fan-fiction social media platform [WattPad], Tahlie collects user-submitted stories about body acceptance and shares them with more than 9,000 followers.

For The Guardian, Simon Usborne wrote that, for 13-year-old lip-synching (?) twins Harvey and Max Mills, Fame has started to change family life, even if the money hasn’t – yet. The boys’ PO box address receives about a dozen items a day, including chocolates, fan fiction and artwork.

Also for The Guardian, Alice Bell wrote There’s a strong social element to a lot of climate scepticism – conversations in comment threads, debates in forums, offline meetups. There’s even climate sceptic fanfic if you know where to look.

Finally, in a Washington Post piece examining Supreme Court options for Obama, Aaron Blake wrote In the end, this is probably liberal fan fiction rather than a serious proposal. But it's notable that we've come to this point.
