Instinct Magazine carried Sam Claflin On Finding The Right Gay Role & 'Hunger Games' Gay Fan Fiction.

There was plenty of fanfic talk in Kaitlyn Tiffany’s THE FOUNDER OF PINBOARD ON WHY UNDERSTANDING FANDOM IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS for The Verge.

GQ’s Jay Willis wrote that, following James Comey’s recent testimony, The left began writing its impeachment fanfiction at a more furious rate than ever.

Theater in Ferndale, American Horror Story, Harry Potter, Jane Austen, more Harry Potter, Markov Chains, Wentworth, British politics, The Mummy, Arms, Marie Antoinette )

A Margaret Smith piece in Wicked Local Chelmsford about encounters with Adam West mentioned Batman fanfic.

Andy Greene described Nirvana’s “Floyd the Barber” as essentially an ultra-violent piece of Andy Griffith fan fiction for Rolling Stone.

In ‘The Refreshing Queer Sensibility of American Gods’ for The Atlantic, Manuel Betancourt wrote [showrunner Bryan] Fuller’s trademark style enwrapped NBC’s horror-thriller drama Hannibal, where he turned a notorious cannibal and his FBI profiler into a homoerotic pairing that inspired a fan-fiction genre called Hannigram.

For America Magazine, Rob Weinert-Kendt wrote that Lucas Hnath’s "A Doll’s House, Part 2,” may come off a bit like fan fiction as written by Tom Stoppard.

You won’t believe what kids are writing about celebs, book characters and other pop culture stars (Caroline Knorr, republished on Salon).

Finally, in ‘How Women Are Changing Geek Culture,’ republished on Forbes, Cecilia Tan, in answering ‘What kinds of roles do women play, in nerd culture in 2017?,’ wrote: People put their energies where they get the best encouragement and positive feedback. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the fandom and nerd culture arenas where women don't just participate but dominate tend to be non-commercial: fan fiction, fan art, cosplay, book blogging and book-tubing. But there are also women making video games, creating comics, hitting the bestseller lists, and winning Hugo and Nebula Awards. There's no space or role that I see in nerd culture that is exclusively a male domain.

From Kaitlyn Tiffany on The Verge: Crowdsourced definitions of ‘fan fiction’ hint at a sprawling, formless genre.

In a Newsweek piece about The Babadook as gay icon, Claire Shaffer wrote It’s no wonder, then, that the internet is quick to pounce on anything that might even remotely resemble queer representation. It’s part of why “slash fiction” is so popular on Tumblr, and why the 2015 period piece Carol still has a sizable internet following two years later.

There was a bit of chatter in parts of the media I don’t usually include here about [a] Harry Potter Fan Film [which] Explores Voldemort’s Origins (Ana Dumaraog, Screen Rants).

Regarding the 1956 meeting Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, Elgin Courier-News’s Annie Alleman wrote It's a story that sounds like a music historian's fan fiction, but it actually happened one night in Memphis.

From a piece about China’s Generation Z by Qi Xijia for Global Times: Ling Ling, a graduate student from Shanghai University, said for a time she craved to be a voice actor because she had a crush on some Japanese anime characters, but now this idea has been replaced by her new interest in writing fanfiction for characters of the Marvel comic book universe.

Harry Potter, American Gods, Wonder Woman, Interstellar, Avengers, Prison Break, Bigfoot, Stranger Things, Obama & Trudeau, Pro hoops )

In a New York Magazine piece about exploration via Tinder, Breena Kerr wrote if you aren’t attracted to someone, for instance, who cares if you are both into the same fan fiction?

Forbes’s Hayley C. Cuccinello explored How Christina Lauren Went From [Twilight] Fanfiction Fame To 14 Bestsellers.

In a Globe and Mail review of Andrew Pyper’s The Only Child, Spencer Gordon wrote Today’s horror fans are trained to read, and watch, historically. From the grimiest of B-movie remakes to the cheek and transgression of fan-fic, horror exists on a knowing continuum, a tangled cobweb of tribute and rip-off.

In a piece for Asian Age about why no Indian shows or films produce as much fan output as Game of Thrones, Suridhi Sharma quoted author Anand Neelkanthan: “Perhaps all the Puranas were written as fan fiction. There are so many versions of Hindu mythology like Ramayana and Mahabharata that I think we have passed the stage of exploring fan fiction in itself,” he laughs, adding, “There are around 300 versions of Ramayana, so all this could be fan fiction. There are around 80 or 90 versions of Mahabharata. Each Purana has so many versions. There is fan fiction on Shiva and Vishnu. No stories have been as impactful for Indians as mythology, which is also why a lot of mythology-based fiction is selling so well now. Hanuman is our own Superman,” he quips.

Finally, [personal profile] msilverstar pointed me to an interesting Boing Boing piece by Racheline about bringing a fanfic sensibility to Tremontaine, concluding If you write stories – in your sandbox or anyone else’s -- the truth is that you’ve already met the wizard, because that’s what all of us that tell stories are.
