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.

For Daily Star, Molly Rose Pike wrote that fanfic writers describe fictional Robron sex scenes that wouldn't be shown in Emmerdale's 7pm time slot.

The Atlantic’s Megan Garber wrote If much of SNL’s treatment of Trump-world women has amounted to progressive fan-fiction—they must be trapped; why else would they be there?—"Complicit" provides a much more realistic take.

Regarding The Outsiders for The New York Times, Heyley Krischer wrote For fans, it seems, the book’s longevity is based on its relationships. Recently, the connection between Johnny Cade and Dallas Winston spawned a subset of fan fiction called slash, in which two male (or two female) characters are involved romantically. Some fans on Twitter in October became confrontational when Ms. Hinton disagreed with their interpretation that the relationship between Johnny and Dallas was a romantic one.

The Johns Hopkins News-Letter’s Meagan Peoples wrote The kingdom of which we’ve crowned lions the rulers is probably the only aristocracy that most of us red-blooded Americans can tolerate. They’ve busied the imagination of many modern artists, spawning their own Hamlet fan fiction and an award winning Broadway adaptation of said movie.

In a piece on speed watching for Philadelphia Magazine, Sandy Hingston wrote that the practice exists within a cultural reframing that sees the individual asserting more control over all sorts of media — think fan fiction, music remixes, even GIFs.

In a piece on This Is Us published in Chicago Tribune, Debra Birnbaum quoted show creator Dan Fogelman: All the online speculation about Jack's death, especially the fan fiction, has caught Fogelman by surprise, he admits. "I was expecting it would affect people," he says. "I just wasn't expecting the scope of the conversation would get this big."

According to Stefan Kyriazis in Express, an official merchandise image, taken from a post from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, [is hella spoilery.] It's not a fan theory, unconfirmed leak or fanfic picture – this is clearly sending a message.

Rebecca Pahle told USA Today’s Kelly Lawler I was the "stay up until 2:00 a.m. reading fanfic" [Buffy] fan. And, for Vanity Fair, Devon Maloney wrote In the years since its birth, the “Buffyverse” has become a pop-cultural behemoth, producing countless franchise tie-ins like comics and video games, spawning fan fiction and intense fan communities both online and off, and even inspiring an entire academic discipline.

Vampire Diaries creator/executive producer Julie Plec told Variety’s LaToya Ferguson that, regarding a storyline unexplored: in absence of that opportunity, we’ll love the fan fiction.

Cosmopolitan’s Eliza Thompson gave a list of things that either could or should happen come [when Game of Thrones resumes in] July, along with a few pipe dreams of stuff that will happen in the fan fiction I write when I’m inevitably disappointed by whatever happens for real.

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.
