Added DiffLines:

* BenFolds is prone to improvising an entire song in concert whenever a fan tells him to ''[[CreatorInJoke ROCK THIS BITCH!]]'' Awesome enough, but then the new tour has Y Music, a classical group, accompanying him, taking it to [[UpToEleven a whole 'nother level of awesomeness.]]

* Parts of the overarching Infinity Stone subplot in the MarvelCinematicUniverse were only thought up after the fact. For one, it's pretty clear that the Tesseract from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' was not originally going to be one of the Stones.

* This backfired on the writer of the KingdomHearts / MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic crossover Heart of Equestria, who was promptly overwhelmed by the various plots they introduced and ultimately cancelled the fic.
* [[FanFic.RainbowFactory Rainbow Factory]] as it went on. The author even stated that he was inspired by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRx_iXgLAyw a song with the same name]] and thought to himself it would make a good DarkFic.

* The storyline [[GratuitousJapanese "manga"]] on ''GaiaOnline'' tells an unbelievably convoluted story. It's so twisty and [[ShockingSwerve swerve-y]], in fact, that the writers and artists responsible for pushing out storyline updates have joked that even they stopped paying attention to what happens at some point or other.

* DavidLynch infamously wrote ''InlandEmpire'' scene by scene during filming. What effect this had on the film's [[MindScrew (lack of) coherence]] is up to debate. Seeing as it's David Lynch, however, [[CrazyAwesome it really doesn't matter too much]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' creator Creator/MasashiKishimoto [[http://www.shonengamez.com/2013/12/22/kishimoto-naruto-will-end-2014/ stated]] that he'd made Madara Uchiha too overpowered and had no clue how to beat him. Eventually he came to a solution: having him be [[spoiler:stabbed in the back by a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere]].

This is the novelistic version of SchrodingersGun or the IndyPloy; when the author of a series canonizes ''fan suggestions'' as he goes along, see AscendedFanon. Can also be related to IJustWriteTheThing.

IJustWriteTheThing. Compare OffTheRails where a GM may be forced to improvise as players break away from the planned story.

* An excellent summation of this trope from E L Doctorow: "It's like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole journey that way." (also quoted by Anne Lamott).
