  Fictional realm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
A fictional universe is usually differentiated from the setting of, and the cosmology established by, ancient or modern legends, myths and religions, although there are countless fictional universes that draw upon such sources for inspiration.
Fictional universes are sometimes shared by multiple authors, with each author's works in that universe being granted approximately equal canonical status.
A fictional crossover occurs when two or more fictional characters, series or universes cross over with one another, usually in the context of a character created by one author or owned by one company meeting a character created or owned by another.

  Fictional Crossover
Crossovers between characters / universes of a single author / production company may also be take the form of a guest or cameo appearance, often to promote another work of fiction, sometimes with little contextual or rational explanation.
Many crossovers occur in a parodic or satirical context, or as part of a homage that is being paid by one property to another; they are usually used to either pay homage to or parody a particular source, and are usually throw-away or instantaneous in nature.
Whereas official crossovers are frequently stymied by such concerns as copyright, royalties payments and ownership of the characters, unofficial crossovers - frequently found in fan-written fiction and fan art - are, given their very nature as being unofficial and unauthorised, are frequently unfettered by such concerns.

 Fictional crossover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most fictional crossovers take the form of stories in which these separated characters and others are brought together and united with (or pitted against) each other over the course of the story that is being told.
Margaret Laurence made similar use of her fictional township of Manawaka, as minor characters of one novel play a part in the next: the respective heroines of A Jest of God and The Firedwellers are in fact sisters.
As a result, unofficial crossovers are limited only by the writer's imagination in bringing two (or more) properties together and the property holder's stance on fanfiction (whether the owner cracks down on unofficial use of owned property or turns a blind eye to it).

 On Crossovers
Crossovers of this variety, in which one author had two of his series characters meet, grew more common during the heyday of dime novels, with Albert Aiken writing about Joe Phenix's pursuit of Dick Talbot, in Beadle’s New York Dime Library #419, in 1886, and Luis Senarens having Frank Reade, Jr.
However, while Henry Brocken is a crossover of a kind, it involves Brocken meeting the characters individually, rather than the characters coming together in a group, as Bangs wrote and later crossovers would feature.
In this way the idea of the crossover became a familiar one and continues to be a common part of modern popular culture.

Crossovers may also be advertised as a guest appearance or cameo appearance, often to promote another work of fiction, sometimes with little contextual or rational explanation.
A crossover story may try to explain its own reason for the crossover, such as "they live next door" (one example being the casts from Golden Girls and Empty Nest) or "a dimensional rift brought them together." Some crossovers are not explained at all.

 A Brief Guide to the Writing of Crossover Fanfiction

 Fictional universe information - Search.com
Many universes written in one or both of these genres feature physical and metaphysical laws different from our own that allow for magical, psychic and various other types of paranormal phenomena, or the hypothesis may be based in a parallel universe which have some scientific theoretcial speculation like multiverse.
A fictional universe can be contained in a single work, as in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four or Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, but nowadays is more common in serialized, series-based, open-ended or round robin-style fiction.
Despite the name, a fictional universe does not necessarily concern an entire universe; for example, most of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is set in a single Californian city — the "Buffyverse", and most of the action in the Harry Potter series occurs in and around a single school.

 The Original Wold Newton Universe Crossover Chronology Part I

Therefore, the references to the superhero team, "The Defenders," are fictional, although the Wold Newton Universe version of Namor was active in the in the 1940s.
Wold Newton expert Rick Lai, who supplied this crossover, notes that, "Although the words "Scarlet Pimpernel" are never uttered, there is little doubt that Wheatley is connecting his characters with Baroness Orczy's.

crossover, since the names of neither Sofia Milos nor Ivana Milicevic is probably immediately familiar to you.
In movie and TV shorthand, any woman who talks all funny -- regardless of whether her accent is Peruvian or Polish -- is "exotic," and therefore irresistible to fictional men, who see in them a departure from the women they date, who hail from dull-ass locations like Connecticut or Indiana.
Sofia Milos is now getting to be practically an elder stateswoman among maneaters; she's been doing it since the first season of Friends, in which she played a glamorous married woman who was sleeping with both Chandler and some other dude named Ethan on the side.

 The Philosophy of the Wold Newton Universe and the Crossover Chronology
The crossover stories establish that there are other characters who co-exist with the characters populating the Wold Newton Universe, although the newly-added characters are not necessarily a part of the Wold Newton Family tree.
Again, when evaluating crossovers, I am looking for stories that involve two or more fictional characters and that do not involve contradictions (that are too difficult to resolve) with what is already included.
Therefore, we are not unduly concerned with peremptory dismissals of new additions to the Crossover Chronology, based on that fact that they are pastiche and not by the "original author," given the fact that we are building upon a continuity which is completely and wholly based on pastiche.
