let's get the seven lines.

quick update

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have gone back and exhaustively edited the fanfiction post, which doesn't really have an official title but probably needs one. I've cleaned up the list and expanded it based on all the many helpful suggestions you guys have provided, and I'm so grateful to everyone who stopped by and read and made corrections and expansions to the list. Thank you everyone.

I really hope that the list will continue to be useful to people in your discussion and explanations of fanfic, so please feel free to keep adding to it as you find new examples of fanfiction operating outside of fan spaces.

As a final note, in particular I'd like to draw everyone's attention to this example of published fanfiction:
    Sara Donati's (approved) use of Diana Gabaldon's characters in her published book Into the Wilderness. Quotes Donati in this interview, "I said, "Well, I've got this injured boy over here and Nathaniel is looking for a doctor. Can I have Claire?" I was completely joking. And Diana said, "Sure. I'll send her over." So her characters show up briefly in my storyline."
That, my dear Ms. Author of the Week, is what is known as Crossover fanfic.

A lot of people have swung by this journal this week, and I just wanted to say hello and welcome, and I'm glad you're all here. I have no idea what to tell you to expect from me or my journal these days, but I hope that you enjoy your visits. Please feel free to ask me anything about any of my fandoms, or me, or my journal, or anything you want.
