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.

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.)
