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".

Mac DeMarco, Sequels and remakes, Fargo, The Fate of the Furious, Star Wars, Marvel )

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!
