* One of the most prominent examples is ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', in which the author [[LemonyNarrator Lemony Snicket]] makes frequent self-references and in which he is both the author of the books and a key character in the series' mythos. "Lemony Snicket" is a pseudonym for Daniel Handler; Handler is frequently referenced as Snicket's agent but is also a background character who exists in-universe.

***Although it is possible that this timeline showcases the route the story has evolved rather than actual chronology. With skyward sword being the earliest telling, and the splits being different avenues story tellers took with the ending of Ocarina of Time

* In TheVerse of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', the CthulhuMythos was based on stories told to Creator/HPLovecraft by aliens claiming to be gods. The main character is [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname called]] Nyarlathotep (Nyarko for short), and is a Nyarlathotepian alien, but insists she isn't the same one Lovecraft wrote about (though she does claim to have pretty much all of of his abilities, like 1,000 forms).

* Allan Dean Foster does it in Quozl. The titular aliens meet humans, first a brother, then his sister. They grow up and the sister goes to work in TV. She turns the story of meeting the Quozl into a cartoon show. Her brother and two Quozl confront her and she says she was paving the way for a future reveal. How much of that is true, is left up to the reader.

* A surprisingly popular fan theory about the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series (which makes quite a large presence on our very own WildMassGuessing pages) is that the events portrayed are nothing more than an [[LifeEmbellished embellished]] retelling of author Tanigawa Nagaru's actual high-school experience, with all the supernatural happenings just added so that the series is distinguishable from all the other SliceOfLife light novels and anime series out there. Of course, there is no evidence in the novels or anime whatsoever that this speculation is correct; it was probably inspired by the facts that Tanigawa refuses to reveal the real name of his FirstPersonNarrator, that the unnamed city in which the events take place is described in just enough detail as to unmistakably be his hometown, and that he was, in fact, in a literature club back in high school.
* Some people believe that JJ Benitez's series of sci-fi time travel books ''Caballo de Troya'' are based in real events.
