From Maureen O’connor in New York Magazine: The Life-Changing Power of Lesbian Monica Lewinsky Fanfic.

In 'Pick your ending: Meet the people rewriting your favourite Hindi films' for Hindustan Times, Roshni Nair wrote FF is the world’s biggest fan fiction archive. Most of it is dedicated to Harry Potter, manga, the Marvel multiverse and the vampires from Twilight; but a growing number of its spin-offs, sequels and alternative plots are based on Indian, mainly Hindi, films. Many of these writers are Indian, but there are also fans from as far away as the US, Scotland and Indonesia.

In 'Star Trek Lawsuit Opens Intellectual Property Debate' for Small Business Trends, Michael Guta wrote To be fair, CBS and Paramount Pictures have a pretty liberal policy for reasonable fan fiction and fan creativity. It allows amateur fan filmmakers to showcase their talent for productions that are non-professional, amateur and meet the guidelines it has in place. However, the Axanar project went well beyond these guidelines using professional actors from the original franchise and professional quality affects and production.

For Asian Journal, Giselle "G" Töngi quoted actor Dante Basco, who is trying to raise money for a short film about a character he played a number of years ago: "It’s essentially a fanfic, crazy because I’m involved."

From Amanda Knox in West Seattle Herald: Amanda's View: Fandom and fan fiction.

In 'On Philip Pullman’s fantastic politics and The Book of Dust' for The Conversation, Claire Squires wrote Richly created fantasy worlds encourage new invention, following a tradition of “minor characters having their day”. Readers want to find out more, put right plot twists they disagreed with, and – in the salacious sub-genre of slash fiction – create sexual partnerships the author might never have envisaged.

Emmerdale, Ivanka, The Outsiders, lions, speed-watching, This Is Us, Star Wars, Buffy, Vampire Diaries, Game of Thrones )

From Scott Mendelson for Forbes: Fifty Shades Freed […] opens on Feb. 9, 2018, the same pre-Valentine's Day slot but since Black Panther debuts a week later (over President's Day weekend), I'd expect nothing less than a brutal spanking from the Marvel superhero (adjust your fanfic accordingly).

In an Evening Standard restaurant review, David Ellis wrote It’s a shame they've used a non-native speaker whose literary experience seems to be fifteen minutes scanning Tumblr #FanFic [to write the drinks menu], because actually, the rest of the bar is rather good.

Finally, for Southwest Journal, Dylan Thomas wrote There’s a dichotomy that splits the world of pop-culture fandom into collectors and creators, those who impulsively consume genre entertainments and those who produce them. It’s a porous barrier; ’zines, fan-fiction and cosplay are just some of the ways that fans write their own storylines. Like a geek colossus, Guillermo del Toro straddles that same divide.
