The Washington Post's Alyssa Rosenberg argued that The temptation to effectively write fan fiction about Ivanka Trump and especially Melania Trump, who despite their relationship to the president are much less accessible to the press, appears even more irresistible. And I argue back that trying to figure out people from less than complete evidence, based on our own biases, is what humans DO. We can try to be enlightened; we can try to separate our conclusions from reality, we can let our working models be updated, but we can’t stop making them, nor should we.

'Actress Claims Conservative Site Stole Her Photo to Create 'Fake News' Persona' by Gene Maddaus for Variety is an especially amusing read, though the fanfic reference is a minor part of the whole thing.

Lauren Sarner shared How To Make Money Writing Fan Fiction with the readers of Inverse.

For Bustle, Sadie L. Trombetta explored Why Fanfiction Is A Good Thing For Writers And Readers.

In 'Copyright Law Versus Internet Culture' from Electronic Frontier Foundation: Here are just a few ways remixers are taking culture into their own hands: * Fan fiction – Kirk and Spock can be gay and Uhura can captain the Enterprise, or that boa constrictor from the zoo scene can become Harry’s familiar instead of taking off for Brazil.

Dirty Pretty Things, FSoG, Ryan/Ayn Rand (because Ryan/Rand - just, no; well, maybe), Harry Potter, Walking Dead, Philippine collegiate volleyball (seriously), Barabbas, Buffy, Emmerdale, failing to get the joke )

According to 'Buffalo Grove student represents Illinois in arts competition' in Chicago Daily Herald, she is also president of the school Book Club, volunteers at her local library and plays the violin in the school orchestra. She has also penned pieces on the website FanFiction.net that have garnered more than 800,000 followers.

For The West Australian, Chloe Fraser wrote Musical comedy, Dr Felicity Rickshaw’s Celebrity Sex Party, is also returning by popular demand. Presented by Holland St Productions, the award-winning musical is about a shy office worker and her raunchy internet alter-ego Dr Felicity Rickshaw, who is an acclaimed author of celebrity fan fiction.

For Winnipeg Free Press, Debbie Patterson described Margaret Atwood’s Hag-Seed as a reimagining of The Tempest as part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Series — kind of like Shakespeare fan fiction by brilliant writers.

Fanfic got a mention in The Internet’s Impact on Creativity: Your Thoughts, compiled by Rosa Inocencio Smith for The Atlantic.

Finally, from Popular Science’s Rachel Feltman: NASA wants the internet to get hype about these new exoplanets[:] You can basically read fanfiction about them.
