Fan fiction (alternatively referred to as fan-fiction or simply fic) is a broadly-defined fan labor term for stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator.

This is the definition of fanfiction according to American journalist Lev Grossman:

"Fan fiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couch-bound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."
- TIME, July 07, 2011

Another fanfiction definition according to media scholar Henry Jenkins:

"Fan fiction can be seen as an unauthorized expansion of these media franchises into new directions which reflect the reader's desire to "fill in the gaps" they have discovered in the commercially produced material."

happily ever after doctor ,

Absolutely terrible

It keeps loading, not even letting me in

kryly ,


The app crashes all the time. I search something: it crashes. I look through the categories: it crashes. I sync it: it crashes.

I've deleted the app and downloaded it again but it still the same. Not once has it worked properly for me since the iPhone app came out.

Can you fix it, please.
