  Fan fiction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fan fiction (also commonly spelled as fanfiction and frequently abbreviated to fanfic) is a broadly defined term for fiction about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creators.
Fan fiction is also seen by many as a modern equivalent of the oral literature tradition of shared stories.
Fan fiction as it is understood now began at least as early as the 17th century, with unauthorized published sequels to such works as Don Quixote[1]; the turn of the 19th century also produced parodies and revisions of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland by authors including Frances Hodgson Burnett and E.

The best fan fiction is that which manages to capture the vital spark at the heart of its characters and setting, and in doing so reads almost like canon material, however 'out there' the events.

Fan fiction frequently has some kind of disclaimer stating that it is not authorized, which limits (does not, contrary to belief among many, eliminate) the likelihood of finding apparent confusion as to origin, sponsorship, or approval of the material.
