Knowing more about Fanfiction
There are several ways to define fanfiction or fanfic. Generally, however, fanfic refers to works that embellish, alter or rewrite the works of other authors. In most cases, these are published authors. The embellished, altered or rewritten work can have a new storyline or add new characters. It can have an alternate beginning or ending. It can also substitute new sets of ideals, morals and politics.
In the internet world, this genre has become quite a popular sensation in the last decade. It has been compared to gamer subcultures. In the World Wide Web, we can see posts and websites dedicated to fanfic works. There are some that focus on specific book, film or game series. And they can number in millions!
Fanfic is not exclusive to English speakers. One can find Harry Potter Fan Fiction in Russian, Hindi, and Japanese. Some even go as far as using the made-up language in Harry Potter's world: Parseltongue.
This genre is not also unique to the world of this teenage wizard school. There is also a multigenerational fanfic for Star Wars. The same goes Lord of the Rings, Dungeons & Dragons (the game), and even Frozen.
