May be responded to with WhoWouldWantToWatchUs. Compare with NarratorAllAlong and TagalongChronicler. Don't confuse with WroteTheBookOnIt, as there they may not have literally written a book.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 3: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals'', Larry and Patti screw over the fabric of their fictional reality, wind up at the set of {{Sierra}} studios, and receive a lucrative offer from [[VideoGame/KingsQuest Roberta Williams]] to code adventure games about their adventures. [[MissingEpisode Al Lowe]] had to skip an entire installment in the series to undo this ending.

* The film version of OnTheRoad ends with Sal Paradise, quite appropriately, typing out his experiences on a long scroll. It's mostly appropriate, except that the real-life JackKerouac didn't finish the novel for years later, causing many of his fans to believe he was still a twentysomething adventurer, when in reality he was a middle-aged alcoholic suffering from chronic depression.
