In 'Why the Technology in Rogue One Is So Old-Fashioned' for The Atlantic, Bryan Alexander wrote We expect certain storytelling forms to pay special attention to setting. Historical fiction spends a great deal of energy in recreating the past. Fan fiction does something similar for its source material.

Partner singer Lucy Niles told Exclaim’s Matt Bobkin "We read Tegan and Sara fan-fiction a lot in the car and it's disgusting."

In 'Will Tom Hiddleston Really Guest Star on Sherlock? An Exhaustive Investigation' for Vanity Fair, Joanna Robinson wrote Rumors have been circulating—for a long time now—that Hiddleston could conceivably play the third Holmes brother: a non-canonical invention called Sherrinford Holmes. Non-canonical stories are, essentially, fan fiction, and there are hundreds of books, plays, films, and other tales not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that are set in the world of Holmes. In this case, when author William S. Baring-Gould wrote a fictional biography of Holmes, he included a second brother named Sherrinford. Why? Because of the "other brother" theory, which goes like this: if Mycroft had been the eldest heir of the landed Holmes family in 19th-century England, he would have been obligated to manage the family estate—and wouldn’t have been free for a government job. This fictitious Sherrinford frees up both Mycroft and Sherlock to go gallivanting on adventures.

In a Deseret News profile of Bonn Turkington, Tara Creel wrote that the author’s website contains information supplied by Turkington in the form of extras, such as facts about Disparia and its characters, but also includes forums for fans to add their own art or fan fiction about the world.

For Consumerist, Ashlee Kieler reported Lawsuit Over Star Trek Fan Fiction Flick Headed To A Jury Trial. And, in ''Axanar' fan film lawsuit ruling could be bad news for fan creators' for Daily Dot, Gavia Baker-Whitelaw wondered does this lawsuit create a worrying precedent for future legal action against fanfiction, fanart, and fan-made films inspired by other sources?

In a Vulture recap of the season premier of Sleepy Hollow, Rose Maura Lorre wrote "You're Captain Brownbeard," Jake gushes adorably to Crane, inadvertently revealing the fanfic name he's made up for Ichie in his head. "Sleepy Hollow, right? I'm a big fan."

From Jen Krausz in Newsmax: Enthusiasm for [Overwatch] runs so high that each teaser video or animated short released by Blizzard generates impressive amounts of fan art, fan fiction, cosplay, and memes, according to Polygon, which calls the game a "cultural touchstone."

Finally, in 'Arts Investigates: The Death Of The Novel' for Impact Nottingham, Matteo Everett wrote it’s worth remembering that the longest published piece ever is a Super Mario-based piece of fan fiction called The Subspace Emissary’s Worlds Conquest, clocking in at a staggering 3.5 million words – much longer than Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, which holds the Guinness World Record for the longest 'novel.'
