Added DiffLines:

* The booklet for Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s ''Nine Lives'' [[http://www.45worlds.com/cdalbum/cd/col4850206 started as this]]: the cover with a "cat krishna" fighting snakes was inside a picture with threatening fish, which was in a fish tank, and so on until a picture with caricatures of the band. Then the picture was found insentitive to Hindu religion, and the replacement had a cat person strapped to a wheel, wearing a shirt with the illustration with the Aerosmith caricatures... [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/18/57/14/185714a83d5b5fe853b68da4fd7dc331.jpg and then in the fish art, it had the cover, making the recursion circular as well.]]

* Let's see the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' (so ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'', ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' and ''Webcomic/DownTheStreet'' and their [[RecursiveFanfiction assorted fanwork]]) is a {{Megacrossover}} MetaFic 'verse, where the (for them) real stories of the characters, are fictional (so all the responsible people exist. James already placed Creator/OrlandoBloom as his problem with Legolas), that is fictional in [[RealLife ours]], and the cast [[MediumAwareness knows]] [[NoFourthWall this]]. This isn't even accounting for all the {{Dream Within A|Dream}} {{Dream World}}s TheFairFolk can create from the inside, or the possibility for stories being MutuallyFictional, or the ability to travel to the worlds of other fiction (Jareth even managed to "fix" ''Film/{{Inception}}''[[note]]So according to this there is a missing scene, where he brings forth the canonical ending, because Saito messing with his love interest's dreams from Limbo annoyed him.[[/note]]). And don't let us get started on the implied possibility to read the comics [[RecursiveCanon in the comics]]. Is there a true reality? Does the chain of fictionality ever end? We don't know. [[BreakingTheFourthWall You reading this]] [[FridgeHorror could be fictional in some other world/story too]]. ... And this isn't a twist ending, this is one of the most basic facts about these comics. Also the authors read each other's work, and some even TVTropes. So questions, ideas, characters etc. flow kinda free between the worlds making up the 'verse. At the end it's either AllFictionIsRealSomewhere or an exceptionally pretty [[SchrodingersButterfly Butterfly]]! [[MindScrew Or both]].

:: The deliberately over-the-top delivery of that line was lampshaded in the "Castrovalva" commentary where Davison described it as "end of episode acting".

* In the JohnCrowley novel ''Little, Big'', the world of the Fae is smaller than the human world and exists in cracks and crevices of the latter. By the time a slow-motion EndOfAnAge comes around, [[spoiler: the Fae have abandoned their world, apparently for another, smaller one, and the few humans aware of the Fae have taken their places in the Fae world.]] The further in you go, the bigger it gets.
