The New York Times published Amanda Hess’s 'When Fan Fiction and Reality Collide,' about “FANtasies,” a new anthology web series where fan fiction about internet stars is “brought to life.” As someone who writes YouTuber rpf/rps, I am… really uneasy about this.

For Comicsverse, Colleen Etman compiled A History of Slashfiction.

For USA Today, Christian Schneider wrote It's not as if gerrymandering is a new practice; according to some accounts, it predated even the American Revolution. Partisan apportionment was known to the nation's founding fathers — it is rumored that Patrick Henry actually attempted, unsuccessfully, to gerrymander James Madison out of the First Congress. (Which, in my fan fiction describing the event, ended with an old-style caning to settle the dispute.)

Los Angeles Times’s Yvonne Villarreal wrote In our own [This Is Us] fan fiction, we imagine [Ron] Howard enlisting Kevin as a last-minute addition to the Han Solo production. Hartley, though, is just crossing his fingers that more Howard cameos are in his future.

Finally, in a review of an art exhibition, The Boston Globe’s Cate McQuaid wrote Yuan Runhe’s wily painted fan, “A Surface of Obtained Flaws,” depicts an envelope and a thank-you note, which says that, in gratitude, the writer is sending a painting of a fan. Is it the object itself? Perhaps, but Yuan also paints a piece of a painting of a fan. Call it fan fiction.

Innocent-sounding question. No context.

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.

Someday in the Whoniverse, an evil alien invading force will threaten to disable humanity's defensive capabilities by making humans remember all of the invasions that they've bizarrely forgotten about. When people are forced to notice things like the gaping hole in Big Ben, the weird monuments, the work camps, the missing family members, the damage to personal property, etc., humanity will be reduced to quivering catatonia.
