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."

Loading Problems from Selandria

The app isn’t loading at all and if I go out the app and go back in there something about a visitor ticket couldn’t be loaded.

A bug

I agree 100% with ChocolateCoffee because the same thing has been bothering me. I just started using the app yesterday and today it stopped loading and kept saying stuff about a ticket. I think you should really fix that because the stories are really nice and accurate👍🏽

Well to be honest...

I can’t get the app to work, ever time I search something it just sits there and buffers! And I even have a good internet connection and everything! The app looks nice and organized and probably has potential to be good, but it’s not working for me. I’ve even tried closing it and the opening it but it still just buffers.
