Fan Fiction [fan fic, fanfic or just fic]
Weren’t you ever upset when your favorite characters from movies, series or books didn’t do what you wanted them to do? Fan Fiction is the answer to that question. The writer uses characters and atmospheres from other works of art. The concept itself isn’t new and has been done since as early as the 15th century. However, it became extremely popular on the internet. There are websites and forums dedicated to this kind of literature. One of the most famous works of fan fiction is 50 Shades of Grey. It started out as a Twilight fan fiction, believe it or not!
