What if Harry Potter never went to Hogwarts? What if your favorite character had a twin or a kid? Connected with someone other than the show matched them with?

Fanfiction knows the answer! Fanfiction, also known as fanfic, is literature written by fans of a particular work and published online. In fact, the popular series Fifty Shades of Grey originated as fanfic for the book series Twilight. Join us as we examine the ups and downs of the wide world of fanfic. We’ll also talk about resources that you can use to create fanfic and other fan-related works.
