In 'How Online Fandom Is Shaping TV in 2017' for Vanity Fair, Joanna Robinson wrote "Shipping" is hardly a new TV phenomenon, and has, for a long time, enjoyed a close association with another kind of fandom—slash fiction—that focuses on the (often imagined, perceived, or extrapolated) sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex.

The Daily Star’s Marisha Aziz expanded upon Steps to Achieve Fanfiction Fame.

For JSTOR Daily, Erin Blakemore explored Fanfic as Academic Discipline.

From 'CBS, Paramount Settle Lawsuit Over 'Star Trek' Fan Film' by Eriq Gardner for The Hollywood Reporter: "There's never really been a trial over fan fiction before," says David Kluft, a partner at Foley Hoag who has written about Star Trek litigation. According to Christopher Mele in The New York Times, The [joint] statement said the studios "continue to be big believers in fan fiction and fan creativity" and encouraged amateur filmmakers to demonstrate their passion for "Star Trek" as long as their works were nonprofessional and met the companies' guidelines for fan films. Similarly, Santa Clarita Valley Signal’s Patrick Mullen wrote In its fan guidelines, CBS and Paramount said they are "big believers in reasonable fan fiction and fan creativity" within certain limits.

According to Nancy West in The Atlantic, Hundreds of [young British] women, calling themselves "Vicbournes," have taken to writing fan fiction or creating mashups based on [Victoria], imagining plots in which Victoria elopes with Lord Melbourne.

The New York Post’s John Aidan Byrne wrote about Anna Todd, 27, who scored a fat six-figure publishing package and a huge Paramount movie deal for her breakout [1D] fan fiction blog, "After."

A bizarre bit of New York real estate doings seemed like bad John le Carré fan fiction to The Real Deal’s Hiten Samtani.

In 'Trump Fires Back at Intelligence Community' for The New American, C. Mitchell Shaw wrote The document reads more like a caricature of a dossier than it does like anything one would expect from a company operated by a former MI-6 agent. Considering the claims of anonymous 4Chan users — that they created the document out of thin air as a prank — perhaps Orbis should return whatever fee it was paid for producing the document. After all, that would be an "ethical business practice" when one apparently pilfered content from Internet fanfiction created by the same people who gave the world lolcat and rickrolling.

AP’s Frazier Moore wrote that Slender Man was typically depicted as a spidery figure in a black suit with a featureless white face. He was regarded by his devotees as alternately a sinister force and an avenging angel. He flourished as a communal boogeyman and, at the same time, an abiding savior who found global expression in fan fiction, artwork and videos.

In an Eugene Daily News review of Split, Ryan Beltram wrote after Signs, you can basically draw a line dividing [M. Night Shyamalan’s] great films from his truly awful ones. The Village is actually a pretty good movie until the ending completely derails it and The Lady in the Water is a story that feels like fan-fiction with Shyamalan actually writing himself into the movie as the savior.

the Trinitonian’s Alejandro Cardona noted The “Star Wars” universe already spans movies, books, video games, comics, fanfiction and even LEGO sets.

For WIRED, Graeme McMillan reported that a poem making the internet gigglecringe was essentially a piece of Donald Trump fanfic that got its signal boosted by the Scotsman purely because of the nationalist connection.

Singapore Book Publishers Association president Peter Schoppert told Straits Times’s Olivia Ho "Young writers and readers have the whole world in front of them and are just as likely to put their energy into Tumblr poetry or fan-fiction as learning about local literature. We have to recognise that and move from there."

I’ve no clue what this means, but here’s something from Syida Lizta Amirul Ihsan in New Straits Times: LOCAL label dUCk is curated as such that it’s narrated by a persona called D. In stories and sketches that appear on Instagram, D lives in a high-rise apartment, has two close friends, Carey and Hannah, and is in a long-distance relationship. Fans assume that D is nothing more than the voice of the brand’s founder Vivy Yusof but D maintains that she exists. There’s a cute banter between both, with fans commenting, assuming and extrapolating all possibilities like they would in fan fiction.

A Zach Schonfeld piece in Newsweek about 3 Doors Down fandom’s response to the group playing the inauguration referenced the existence of Anderson Cooper fanfic.

A piece in the Bainbridge Review revealed that the winner of "the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra’s 2017 Young Artist Concerto Competition" loves to write fan fiction and watch the Food Network.

Finally, from 'Dangerous Game: can a Calum Best vehicle with Darren Day as a Russian mob boss really exist?' (Stuart Heritage, The Guardian): "You know what they say," Best grunts 22 seconds into the trailer. "A friend helps you move, but a true friend helps you move a dead body." No they don’t, Calum. Nobody says that. I just Googled "A friend helps you move, but a true friend helps you move a dead body". It had only two results, and both of those came from a Teen Wolf fan fiction forum.
