In 'What We Lose if We Lose Us Weekly' for Vanity Fair, Lindsey Weber and Bobby Finger wrote There are certainly other tabloids out there—Star and Life & Style for what could be considered celebrity fan fiction, People for the party line—but true gossip-lovers (closeted or not: no judgment here!) will likely sense the loss of Us acutely.

In a Sydney Morning Herald piece on Channel Zero, Michael Idato quoted writer/producer Nick Antosca "Our show is basically fan fiction of creepypastas; we take the stories that we love and then we elaborate on them and tell our own version of it."

To investigate Hybristophilia, The (Connecticut) College Voice’s John Chatigny went to the only place on the earth where erotic fanfiction starring the Lorax coexist with serious discourse on the social issues of our time. I went to Tumblr.

For Vulture, Madeleine Buckley shared Just like you, [Gabourey Sidibe] wrote NSYNC fan fiction as a teen.

Outsiders author S. E. Hilton told Tulsa World’s Ginnie Graaham She doesn’t read fan fiction but has no problem with it. “I think it’s a good way to practice writing. When I was in middle school, I wrote what would be considered fan fiction of 'Bonanza.' There was no place to put it; it was just fun to do.”

Regarding The Dark Tower for WIRED, Sarah Fallon wrote Basically, we’re talking about a lot of nested tales and back-storied characters, and some exuberant world-building that combines Old West and Middle-Ages themes with some Lord of the Rings-ish stuff, and some ley line business and a trip to see the Wizard of Oz. The inspiration for the series is actually Robert Browning’s “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came” which prefigures T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland,” which is (almost) the title of one of the books, so there’s plenty of literary fan-fiction and high-fiving for the high-minded.

From an Ellen Brickley Irish Times piece on author Angie Thomas: When [Irish author Deirdre] Sullivan described Starr’s story as that of “a Ravenclaw discovering that she’s a Gryffindor,” Thomas laughed and asked who would write that fanfic.

Finally, in a piece on Better Call Saul for The Wesleyan Argus, Jake Lahut, Editor-in-Chief wrote Origin stories have largely been corrupted by 21st century Hollywood to become overly saturated fan fiction, offering little to no aesthetic or narrative value (see “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” or just about any superhero movie that your one annoying friend insists is different from all the others).
