->''"While browsing {{livejournal}} for Sharks icons, I found this multi-part epic about [Evgeni Nabokov] and Joe [Thornton] getting it on. Didn't read much (RPS ain't exactly my cup of tea), but apparently it revolved around the playoffs last year and the two of them [[HurtComfortFic comforting]] each other after the Sharks were eliminated.

Also known as Celebrity Fic, this is basically fanfiction based on the real life of one or more celebrities (as opposed to a strictly fictional canon). Just as how people find fantasies and interpretations within their favorite fictional characters, so, too, do they find them in celebrities. Any and all fanfiction tropes can apply (for example, it could decide to base itself around the [[HighSchoolAU high school days]] of the celebrity, create a RelationshipSue to vicariously live out a relationship with the person, use them as part of a HurtComfortFic, etc.). The possibilities are endless and often just disregard the celebrity's history, personality, etc. in order to facilitate the plot (or, often, just the particular fetishes of the author).

However, it's just as likely that a fic will be relatively accurate, based on knowledge of the celebrity's "real lives" gained from interviews, blogs, tweets, etc. Increased interactivity between actors/bands/whoever and their fans makes it extremely easy for ficcers to include canon details into their work. This avoids factual inaccuracy, although there's probably a fine line between research (good) and stalking (bad).

Also common in this genre is for the celebrity to meet the fictional characters that he or she is famous for playing as. They might either coexist in the same universe (this is a flimsy premise at best) or there's some sort of alternate universe with travel between them.

The final theme which turns up a lot is fics which blur the line between Character {{Shipping}} and [[ActorShipping Cast Shipping]]; depending on the quality of the acting, it's often easy to read real-life relationships between the actors in the emotions their characters portray towards each other on screen. These sorts of fics are often set in and around the filming of the show, to the extent that frequently they're just plain ol' show fics in disguise; the actors will often take on the traits and ideas of their characters and go through similar emotions and experiences. Somebody will tell you that there's some sort of metaphor in there for [[ContemplateOurNavels the duality of the actor and the character]], or something.

There is some level of controversy surrounding this genre. For some people, the mere existence of Real Person Fics -- especially {{lemon}} fics -- is a case of {{squick}}, while others don't see them as wrong as long as the tone is kept respectful. Then there are those for whom anything goes because it's unlikely the "protagonist" will ever read the fic anyway and will do everything from CharacterDerailment to [[GenderBender Gender Bending]] to unceremoniously killing them off. (That last can sometimes be [[IDoNotOwn legally dangerous]], though.)

Fanfiction.net does not allow Real Person Fics anymore, but that doesn't stop anyone. Most of them are hiding [[http://www.fanfiction.net/misc/X-overs/ here]].

The existence and popularity of "[[http://ratmmjess.livejournal.com/246860.html Celebrity Pulps]]" makes this OlderThanTelevision.

Compare HistoricalDomainCharacter.

Not to be confused with when a SelfInsertFic doesn't even bother with an AuthorAvatar and the author just puts themselves (and their friends) in.

!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Automobiles ]]

* Unusually, ''automobile magazines'' get this treatment; a small group of fans, inspired by such sites as [[http://free.yudu.com Yudu.com]] '''created their own copies''' of ''Auto Express'', ''What Car?'', ''Motor Trend'', ''Car and Driver'', ''[[http://www.autoexchange.co.uk Auto Exchange]]'' (and sometimes) ''[[http://www.autotrader.co.uk AutoTrader]]'' (United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Netherlands) along with its sister publications ''Top Marques'' and ''Truck and Plant Trader''.
** However, the lines are blurred; as they tend to be set in fictional towns (Blackburn-on-the-Wolds, anyone??) or with OriginalFlavour for automobiles (e.g. Renault Laguna 4x4 hatchback - which did not exist ever in 1996). Phone codes are fictional, but it just about falls into this trope [[LoopholeAbuse given that place-names cannot be copyrighted]] [[StockCharacters as they are unable to be under British law]]. The fans don't tend to promote it openly or share it online in order [[ScrewedByTheLawyers to keep it legal]], and they use Adobe InDesign to create their works. This is DoingItForTheArt, combined with AlternateHistory ([[SlidingScaleOfAlternateHistoryPlausibility in many cases Type II or Type III]], along with {{Continuation}} (both publications are now out of print, for the most part) and some AcceptableBreaksFromCanon thrown in for good measure - for what are basically advertising publications (at least the last two anyway). In all, this is an EvolvingTrope with magazine fans, graphic designers and automobile fans proving that fan fiction is not just about good ''writing'', but literally DoingItForTheArt.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* There's a fanfic out there in which anime voice actor VicMignogna is kidnapped by Music/JustinBieber fans and gets rescued by members of his fan club, the Risembool Rangers. Reportedly the story amused Vic so much that he has a framed copy on the wall of his home.
* An unusual InUniverse example occurs in ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan W'', where Mahiro is horrified to learn that an alien {{Doujin}} circle published a {{Yaoi}} manga about him. His three companions all fight over it (Nyarko and Hasta want to read it, Cuuko wants to sell it on the open market), but Mahiro ends up buying and destroying it. Several times throughout the season the doujin's author (a massive Mahiro fangirl) pops up and attempts to meet him in person, not realizing that he isn't exactly happy to be the subject of gay porn from space.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comedy ]]

* Although the fandom seems to have died down a little, there were days when The Goth Detectives (the temporary comedy duo of Russell Brand and Noel Fielding) had a nice big fan-following with lots of slash fics to be found.
** That seems to be shrinking in direct proportion to the rise of ''TheMightyBoosh'' RPS. (Most of it predictably being Julian Barratt/Noel Fielding, though have been reportings of a Julian/''Michael'' Fielding fic.)
* There are communities devoted to the pairing of Creator/HughLaurie and his long time comedy partner and best friend, Creator/StephenFry.
** According to Creator/StephenFry, during his most recent appearance on ''Friday Night with Jonathan Ross'', he was subjected to a reading from one of these fics. It was cut from the broadcast, though.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* In-universe example: In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' fanfic ''Fanfic/ProjectGethinator'', it's mentioned that [[spoiler:Admiral Daro'Xen]], who is {{Yandere}} for Shepard in a big way, has written quite a few {{Self Insert|Fic}} {{Real Person Fic}}s involving herself and Shepard. According to those who know of them, they're quite sick and depraved, second only to [[NoodleIncident what Prazza did in]] ''[[NoodleIncident Fornax]]''[[NoodleIncident 's Forbidden Issue]], and illustrate quite nicely how completely obsessive and crazy [[spoiler:Xen]] is.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Creator/SueMary somehow believed that Wrestling/DwayneJohnson and Creator/StephenMerchant were [[AsHimself playing themselves]] in TheToothFairy, leading to her story ''Tooth Fairy 2: Literature/RedDragon Rising'' using their names for the characters instead of who they portrayed.
* There are metric buttloads of RealPersonFic taking place behind the scenes of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. There's a [[http://community.livejournal.com/bloomwood_ LJ community]] dedicated to the "Orlijah" pairing (Creator/OrlandoBloom and ElijahWood).
* There was an explosion of this, mostly about Creator/ZacEfron and Music/VanessaHudgens, after ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' came out.
* ZacharyQuinto, ChrisPine and KarlUrban (Spock, Kirk and [=McCoy=] in the new ''Film/StarTrek'') are starting to get a lot of this. If it's about the first two, it's called "Pinto". If it's the about the last two, it's called "Urbine".
* There's been quite a healthy [[PortmanteauCoupleName RDJude]] (Creator/RobertDowneyJr[=/=]Jude Law) community around the 2009 ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' film.
* ''Film/TheATeam'' KinkMeme has gotten a good deal of this, especially LiamNeeson[=/=]Bradley Cooper, Bradley/Sharlto Copley (called "Coopley"), and a bit of Sharlto/Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.
** For [[Series/TheATeam the original series]], RPF featuring Dirk Benedict[=/=]Creator/DwightSchultz has gotten several prompts and fills.
* ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' has a steadily growing RPF community, with a large portion of its KinkMeme geared towards it. Because of the nature of the film, there's also some rather interesting layers going on, what with fic about the characters, fic about the actors playing the characters, fic about the real people the characters are based on, and every imaginable combination of crossover therein.
* Following ''Film/TheRunaways'', there are several stories between DakotaFanning and KristenStewart as well as the original people they played.
* Sometimes it's hard to distinguish whether some fanfics are Thor/Loki in the character sense or a disguise for ChrisHemsworth[=/=]Creator/TomHiddleston.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: History ]]

* Historical slash. Slightly less tawdry than other real-person fic, at least in premises -- because history has basically lent the [[HistoricalDomainCharacter various personages an air of being fictional anyway.]] Founding Fathers slash, FrenchRevolution slash, etc.
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_romances Alexander Romances]] date from the third century CE.
* ''Fanfic/TheSonOfTheEmperor'' is a biography and ComingOfAgeStory of Napoleon II of France. Which plays alongside the [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]] universe.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* RalphNader's AuthorTract ''Literature/OnlyTheSuperRichCanSaveUs'' has real celebrities and billionaires saving the world.
* There is a short story on Website/DeviantArt in which Creator/HPLovecraft meets Creator/EdgarAllanPoe. No, really. It appears our friendly neighborhood CosmicHorror writer is [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee quite the]] {{fanboy}}, too.
* [[http://the-toast.net/2013/09/17/oscar-wilde-and-walt-whitman-did-it/ This article]] amounts to a light erotic piece about Creator/OscarWilde and Creator/WaltWhitman. Even better (for people who are into it): it's almost certainly true.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live-Action TV ]]

* HeterosexualLifePartners Creator/JensenAckles and Creator/JaredPadalecki tend to get this a lot.
** And now Creator/MishaCollins (who plays [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Castiel]]) gets shipped with Jensen all the time, presumably because they're just good-looking.
*** He gets slashed with Jared, too, sometimes. [[OT3 Misha/Jensen/Jared]] is more common, though.
** Richard/Jared, Richard/Misha, Mark P/Misha, Mark p/Richard, Misha/Jim, Jim/Mark S, JDM/Jim, not as prominent, but known.
* ''TopGear'' slash. A particularly eyebrow-raising example involved Jeremy Clarkson raping Richard Hammond... who then sought comfort in the arms of James May.
** [[http://community.livejournal.com/topgearslash/ Have the comm. You will need a Livejournal to join.]]
* ''Series/TheDailyShow''. Which people? ''All of them.'' This can get very weird when both Creator/StephenColbert and [[AlterEgoActing the character with the same name]] end up in the same fic. [[ScrewYourself Which happens more often than you'd think]].
* There's a fairly large fanbase for the actors of ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', especially Colin/Bradley.
* There's a small but very active fandom for ''BandofBrothers'' fics.
* There is a small group of "Mayjim" ficcers, fans of {{Series/The Big Bang Theory}} who ship Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, who play BetaCouple Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler.
* This is quite popular in the ''DrakeAndJosh'' fandom, usually pairing Creator/DrakeBell and Josh, and occasionally Jerry Trainor, who plays Crazy Steve in the Nick series, together. As themselves, usually in the future as musicians and actors.
* People ship Creator/DavidTennant with Creator/JohnBarrowman, though more ship him with Creator/JohnSimm.
** More than a couple of people ship David and Creator/BilliePiper.
** Some people ship David with Creator/CatherineTate, too.
** And while ''Series/DoctorWho'' RPS is typically limited to new Who actors, there is floating around on the internet Patrick Troughton/Frazer Hines slash.
** Then there's [[http://sam-storyteller.livejournal.com/129218.html this]] story, written in response to David's shocked reaction when he was exposed to Doctor Who slash fic on a British chat show. This RPF story suggests his costars from ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', and ''Film/HarryPotter'' all teased him by showing him that oh, there was ''so'' much more than that.
*** Actually, David had a rather brilliant comeback himself after hearing the slash fic sample: they'd accidentally found [[CrowningMomentOfFunny John Barrowman's blog]] instead.
** Creator/MattSmith[=/=]Creator/KarenGillan shippage seems to be thriving thanks to their RL chemistry.
** Matt[=/=]Creator/AlexKingston is also heating up.
** Somewhat tamer, there was a fic called "[[http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=574 Auditions]]"by Adrian Tullworth written when all we knew about the new series was that it existed, featuring Creator/RussellTDavies, Lorrainne Heggassy, Greg Dyke, and a string of potential companions.
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILw7ffL5RGs this]] ''Series/MockTheWeek'' clip, Frankie Boyle informs Hugh Dennis of some SlashFic he found featuring the two of them.
* Lily Loveless and Kathryn Prescott exhibited so much chemistry as the (canon) ''{{Skins}}'' pairing of Naomi and Emily that [=LilyKat=] fic is increasingly popular.
* Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/LeonardNimoy have been getting this since the original ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' series.
* Creator/AaronSorkin has figured in several ''TheWestWing'' parody-fics, mostly in ones devoted to making fun of [[EndingAversion what happened to the series]] after he left. And there's a Murder On The Orient Express parody with Aaron as [[spoiler: the killer]], Amy as Ratchett, and [[IntrepidReporter Danny Concannon]] as Poirot. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/892560/1/Murder_on_the_Campaign_Express Check it out here.]]
* ''Series/ICarly'': Creator/NathanKress[=/=]Creator/MirandaCosgrove (known as Niranda or Mathan) fic has recently become as popular as fic for their on-show couple ship Freddie/Carly.
** Creator/JennetteMcCurdy[=/=]Miranda is somewhat popular too.
* ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' fans ship actors DavidHenrie and SelenaGomez.
* Pairing ''Series/AmericanIdol'' judges and contestants is also common, especially [[PortmanteauCoupleName Saula]] (SimonCowell and PaulaAbdul.) There's even an entire LiveJournal community dedicated to same sex idol/idol {{fanfiction}}. (Kris and Adam was probably a field day for them.)
* Lea Michele and Dianna Agron of ''{{Glee}}'' fame.
** Heather Morris and Naya Rivera get this as well
*** Same goes for ChrisColfer and DarrenCriss.
** Really, you can pick any two ''Glee'' actors and ''somebody'' out there probably writes fics about it.
* In a rather hilarious scene in the KoreanDrama YouAreBeautiful, a member of a boyband reads horribly melodramatic RPF of himself slashed with his bandmates.
* Back when [=ColbertNation.com=] was made to look like a fansite for ''Series/TheColbertReport'' as opposed to the official site, among the "fan-submitted" contents was an intentionally SoBadItsGood StephenColbert x Bill O'Reilly fic. The original page is gone, but the contents have been preserved [[http://wikiality.wikia.com/Colbert_Nation/Shorts_Weather here]].
* Check any section of a popular DisneyChannel show or movie (Such as HighSchoolMusical and the ones starring MileyCyrus, SelenaGomez, DemiLovato, or the JonasBrothers) on Fanfiction.net and you'll find them without much effort
* Series/BigTimeRush, as the main characters are [[TheDanza named after themselves]], there's a lot of slashing going on with the four boys. Of course, issues with characterization might just mean that the fic in question just got their last names wrong, but mostly, RPFs are written for setting.
* There is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/community/Granada/90550/ an entire community]] on [=FF.N=] for crossover fics between the canon of Literature/SherlockHolmes and the real-life cast of [[Series/SherlockHolmes the Granada series.]] Creator/JeremyBrett naturally gets the most focus for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that more is known about him than either of his [[TheWatson Watsons]], David Burke or Edward Hardwicke. However, all three actors interact with their allegedly-fictional counterparts in these crossovers. (Note that not ''all'' the stories in the community are true crossovers - some are simply based on Granada's [[FanVerse 'verse]].)
* ''{{Friends}}'': There are quite a few 'Matteney' (Matthew Perry/Courteney Cox) stories floating around, and the characterization is pretty similar to Mondler (Chandler/Monica) the couple they played on the show. This is kind of understandable though as 1) Both actors are pretty similar to their characters and 2) They've flat out admitted that their relationship is almost exactly like Monica and Chandlers "except for the sex." And the fanfic authors take care of that.
* 99.99999% of fanfics about ''Series/TheVoice'' seem to involve [[Music/{{Maroon 5}} Adam Levine]] and ChristinaAguilera falling in love with one another, often with [[Music/CeeLoGreen Cee-Lo]] and [[BlakeShelton Blake]] trying to be TheMatchmaker.
* They're not always easy to find, but there are a number of {{Series/Mythbusters}} fanfics. The nature of these stories vary naturally, but often they involve the sort of myths you wouldn't see on the show, like trying to figure out if the Necronomicon is real or testing myths about vampires.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* Music/TheBeatles seem to lend themselves quite well to this due to their almost mythical status. This is probably because of their relatively short lived career, leading a lot of fans who want more than just the decade of activity filling in more of what they view should have happened after 1970. It also helps that there are three movies featuring them as themselves, each one goofier than the last. ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' is a particularly famous example.
** Fandom invokes Music/JohnLennon's questionable sexuality in 99.9% of the fics with sexuality. Interestingly enough, most of these fics don't include Brian Epstein, their openly gay manager -- or, when they do, he's at most {{Starboarding}} for Lennon. (The film ''TheHoursAndTimes'' is an exception.)
*** Poppy Z Brite wrote a speculative piece for Nerve magazine about what would happen if John married Music/PaulMcCartney instead of Music/YokoOno.
* Perhaps because of his flamboyant nature, people just love to use Music/DavidBowie as a character in their fanfiction.
** There is also a fair amount of [[ScrewYourself Bowie on Bowie]] fanfiction, clearly due to his numerous personas.
* Most {{Boy Band}}s are ripe for [[SlashFic slashing]] due to their prepackaged FiveManBand archetypes.
** * When fanfic writers for Music/TheBeatles worked more modern Boy Bands into their fics, things got ugly; even, or maybe especially, those who were tweens thought Boy Bands were necessarily evil. There is one Beatles fic, "Angelic Sins," that attempts to make the group 98 Degrees into villains. (This one also has Music/{{Metallica}} as a friendly presence despite kidnapping JohnLennon -- this was completed before the Napster scandal and ''St. Anger.'')
** The fandoms for Music/{{NSYNC}} and Music/BackstreetBoys are largely credited for jumpstarting the idea of using Livejournal as a fandom platform as the site was started right around the time of the height of the bands' careers. These two fanbases are even credited in Fanlore as the being the genesis for many of the major common fandom experiences and gradually making the idea of RPF much less taboo among fandom circles.
* Bandfics, either involving {{original character}}s varying in quality to bandslash. The bandslash ends to be significantly better written than the Sue!fic but significantly less concerned with reality. Quizilla was particularly infamous for "bandfics", starring people from any band that featured a moderately attractive male, from SimplePlan to Music/AllTimeLow and everything in between.
** Essentially the basis of Pete Wentz's entire career. Both within his own band, FallOutBoy, and between all of the bands on his label. "Bandom" is practically synonymous with Pete Wentz in said circle.
** There are numerous fanfics of the various members of MyChemicalRomance, usually involving bandslash or the band members becoming teachers in the fan's school or something along the lines.
* The cult British indie band The Libertines are probably only remembered now as being the group that brought supermodel-chasing drug-botherer Pete Doherty into the public eye. That band's dissolution hinged on Doherty's fractious (although not gay) relationship with guitarist Carl Barat. The band's self titled (and final) second album [[http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff315/libsdom/Carl%20and%20Peter/libertines.jpg cover]] sees a vacant, mildly distressed Barat cradling a collapsed Doherty.
* Go on Website/YouTube. Now, in the search bar, type in ''any'' word that has some sort of relation to love or romance, or could be used as a cliche metaphoric word in a love poem. Now, count how many "JonasBrothers Love Stories" you find. And it doesn't just have to be a love-related word. Sometimes typing in completely random words like "stairs" and "lunch" will also get you pages of these.
* There is ''NickCave and the Bad Seeds'' slash out [[http://community.livejournal.com/ficcing_seeds there]]. One wonders if the band knows.
* Music/XJapan is pretty much ''the'' TropeCodifier for Japanese rock/metal bandslash - their love of male/male onstage fanservice, having actually ''written and performed'' at least one song that is openly about gay sex and their most famous cover being a song with heavy HomoeroticSubtext, their even endorsing the early slash doujinshi, and three members of the band being actually bisexual leads to everything from fanfic to fanart, of varying degrees of respectfulness and quality. The main FanPreferredCouple|s are [[OfficialCouple Yoshiki/hide]] and [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Yoshiki/Toshi]], but other fics involve Taiji/Toshi, Yoshiki/Heath, Yoshiki/Sugizo, [[FoeYay Taiji/Yoshiki]], [[PairTheSpares Pata/Heath]], Taiji/hide, Pata/Taiji, Sugizo/Heath, and [[LoveDodecahedron various combinations thereof]].
** Yoshiki himself has also been written in slash fic with ''nearly everyone else in the VisualKei scene,'' most commonly Creator/{{Gackt}}, Atsushi Sakurai of Music/BuckTick, both Music/{{Die}} and Music/{{Shinya}} of Music/DirEnGrey, and Music/{{Miyavi}}, though the last suffered a case of AbandonShipping with both Miyavi's marriage and Toshi's return to the band.
* Gackt, usually slashed with some other J-musician. These include most guys he's worked with, especially Hyde, Miyavi, Mana, Kami and Masa.
** Japanese rock and metal bands fall under bandslash. Nearly any band will have some. Some bands don't mind the slash, others are... less welcoming. That said, some bands also have a BrokenBase even if the band itself doesn't mind the slash, where non-participating fans will loathe the participating fans as "yaoi fangirls" or "gay," often with some subtext of homophobia (e.g. the angry fans don't get half as angry over heterosexual fics when they exist, or even write those themselves)
* AdamLambert is the new focus of the Series/AmericanIdol slash fandom. Out of all the other contestants on the season, he's most often paired with Kris Allen.
* Tarja Turunen/Tuomas Holopainen is surprisingly popular amongst Music/{{Nightwish}} fans.
* It's rare, but British indie singers PatrickWolf and Edward Eke (formerly known as Edward Larrikin) are occasionally shipped together.
** Oh, it gets better. There's an entire Livejournal community devoted to Patrick Wolf fanfics.
* Perhaps due to an unfortunate combination of {{Bishonen}} and IWasQuiteALooker, there does exist PeterGabriel-era Music/{{Genesis}} SlashFic, usually pairing him with TonyBanks, but sometimes PhilCollins gets a turn as well.
* Music/TokioHotel gets this, like from here [[http://www.twckaulitz.com here]] and [[http://www.tokiohotelfiction.com here]] and [[http://tokiohotel-fff.get-forum.net here]]. Tends to mainly be {{Twincest}} shipping between Bill and Tom Kaulitz or band member/fan/AuthorAvatar fics written by younger fans. Proceed with caution.
* Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda of LinkinPark have a very close friendship and as a result many a fanfic written about them, they even have a PortmanteauCoupleName of "Bennoda".
* Also, Music/{{Aerosmith}}. Most SlashFic about them is Joe Perry/Steven Tyler, but if you can dream up an Aerocouple, fic for it probably exists.
* {{Radiohead}}. ''Radiohead''.
** There's a small but infamous community on the internet that specializes in writing slash fic, termed "cheesecake" after a... prolific fic involving lead singer Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe of {{REM}} doing things to each other with the dessert. Popular pairings include Thom/lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, Jonny/bassist and [[IncestIsRelative brother]] Colin Greenwood, and Colin/guitarist Ed O'Brien. Drummer Philip Selway is left out of the equation 99% of the time.
* Music/{{Rammstein}} isn't exempt from this either.
* A Music/GirlsAloud RPF was deemed so obscene that the author was arrested and taken to court. This was the first time literature of any kind resulted in an arrest in the UK for more than twenty years.
** The fic in question was the infamous ''Girls (Scream) Aloud'', a {{Gorn}}-tastic snuff-fic that rivaled ''Agony In Pink'' in utter awfulness.
* Guns 'n' Roses and/or Velvet Revolver RPS is out there, a lot of it being Axl Rose and Slash.
* {{Rush}}- yes, the Canadian prog band-also has a fandom with surprising amounts of horny fangirls eager to ship (the typical Rush fan is AlwaysMale). Geddy and Alex, being HeterosexualLifePartners, are the ones most often shipped.
* Three words: Music/JustinBieber [[http://www.justinbieberfanfiction.com fanfiction]], the most infamous being the SpongebobSquarepants [[FanFic/OneLessLonelyGurl crossover]].
** Three more words: Music/OneDirection [[http://onedirectionfanfiction.com/ fanfiction]].
* Then there is [[Creator/MonicaGilbeyBieber this]] FallingInReverse SlashFic starring a SelfInsert shipped with Ronnie Radke. The fic is actually quite well-written.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Politics ]]

* Back in 2004 someone actually published a humorous story in ''The New Yorker'' where an unidentified diarist who was obviously Bush confessed to having a mad crush on John Kerry. One only wonders if that author knew of the Kerry/Edwards slash being written on the net at the time.
* The Internet has been lately seeing ''tons'' of fics involving UsefulNotes/BarackObama, John McCain, and UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush.
** Speaking of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush, when the case of [[LiteralMetaphor media whore]] [[ArmouredClosetGay Jeff Gannon]] broke, many liberal bloggers [[EpilepticTrees speculated as to how Bush met the guy]].
* ''Comicbook/LiberalityForAll'' features several famous conservative icons fighting an evil liberal U.N dominated United States.
* Forget about all the photoshops and fanfiction, even the BritishNewspapers were getting in on the HoYay of the [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem 2010 British Parliamentary elections]] between Conservative David Cameron and Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg, respectively. Poor GordonBrown is pretty much left behind as the RomanticRunnerUp. Clegg's status as Cameron's personal bitch has only gotten worse in {{Fanon}} as accusations of him selling out for power pile up. That both attended very posh schools where there supposedly remains a tradition known as 'fagging' for older boys have not helped either.
** It was still present in late 2012, at the halfway mark between elections. 'Cameron and Clegg renew their vows' indeed.
* There was a short sci-fi AlternateHistory story published in the early-to-mid 1970s which had Ralph Nader be a detective in the literary equivalent of a FilmNoir, in a DC utterly corrupted by cheating corporations.
* During the run-up to the 2012 US presidential election, many fanfics on the internet were created about the GOP contenders and BarackObama, perhaps most frequently about Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. This is made especially entertaining by the fact that the candidates, aside from Obama, generally have a fairly anti-gay record and some have made controversial statements regarding homosexuality.
** One story in particular involved Gingrich/Romney. It crossed the line into parody when the resulting santorum turned into Rick Santorum.
* There is now a whole [[http://hailtotheslash.com/ online community]] devoted to this... started by a Wonkette columnist, even.
* Though the fic itself is lost to time there exists a list of fanfic that is supposed to be out their on different computers most of which have never found homes on the internet; including a fic described as "Blair and Thatcher couple like stoats on the grave of Nye Bevan".... [[SarcasmMode thanks so very much]] for that mental image internet, really.
* According to WordOfGod, Music/PetShopBoys' "I'm With Stupid" is Tony Blair/ George W Bush, and "I Get Along" is Peter Mandelson/ Tony Blair.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Professional Wrestling ]]

* The debate has been raging for ''years'' whether ProfessionalWrestling fic is RPF or not. It's been around for ages and [[AscendedFanboy Henry Jenkins]] has written essays on it (along with the rest of fandom). At any rate, there seem to be three different versions...first, television-based, in which the stories are about the people in the ring being exactly who they are on the show and the matches and conflict being real. Second, character-based realism, in that the wrestlers are their characters, but the matches and conflict are scripted and all part of the show, and finally, the real-person version which is based off real life. Different writers use different methods, some explicitly only write television-based, others dabble all the way down to RPF. Of course, there's also AU, but that's another trope altogether. Further subgenres include:
** Back in 2001-2003, the biggest and most vocal (and also virtually ''only'') het shippers were the [[FanNickname Smoochy Dreamers]], Chris Jericho/Stephanie [=McMahon=]. Chris/Steph is nothing so much as a kindergardener pulling the pigtails of the girl he likes, and between the [[GagBoobs boob comments]], kissing as gross-out tactic, and his seemingly extensive knowledge of her supposed sexual practices, they were ripe for shipping.
** Then there's the slash. Between the [[{{Incest}} Matt/Jeff Hardy fangirls]] to the Rock/Steve Austin subset to the [[TrueCompanions Kliqfic]], if two men were anywhere within a five-block radius of each other, you can probably find fic about them. If they were tag-team partners, it's almost a certainty.
** Don't even go ''into'' the MarySue self-inserts (all the long-lost [=McMahon=] children, the Lita-Sues, the random "cousins").
* In a way, professional wrestling IS this. Basically, the wrestlers are martial artists acting out how things would be if they were even more over the top awesome martial artists. It's not so much a self-insert fic as a real person fic about themselves.

* As the quote at the top of the page attests, athletes are no exception to this trope. There is a quite healthy soccer/football slash fandom, there's been a community devoted to fic from the 2004 Athens Olympics that was reactivated for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
* It is ridiculously easy to find slash about male figure skaters.
** About eighty-five percent of the 2010 Olympic winter games kink meme centers around Weir, Plushenko, Lysacek, and Lambiel. The rest is Ohno[=/=]Celski, Token Straight Couple Scott Moir/Tessa Virtue (and/or their fellow ice dancers Charlie White/Meryl Davis), a few fics with Shaun White or some other snowboarder, [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers and one curling slash request]].
*** It got so bad the kink meme ended up divided. Skating had to go to a separate ''community'' just to accommodate the volume of skater fic (though that's partially due to a missing mod at the winter games meme).
** Figure skating fandom exploded over this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtLMvr6nHcc&feature=player_embedded very short video]], in which Stéphane Lambiel kisses and then tickles Johnny Weir.
** Oddly though, and this is no doubt due to the fandom dying down in between Winter Olympics, there is very little fic of Johnny Weir and his now husband, Victor Voronov.
** Post- Sochi 2014, the figure skating RPF fandom seems to have focused on three pairings: two sets of actual on-ice partners, Meryl Davis/Charlie White and Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir, and the slash pairing of mens' medalists Yuzuru Hanyu and Javier Fernandez.
* MLB RPF is surprisingly popular. The most common pairings usually involve pitchers and catchers, for obvious reason. Also, the Oakland A's seem to be the most susceptible to being slashed.
* There's also a dedicated hockey RPF fandom. One of the fanfics from that fandom ("Literature/HeartInHand"), in fact, became so popular with non-hockey slash aficionados who didn't recognize the characters' names and assumed that it was original fiction that the author went ahead [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/259462/chapters/405457 and revised it into an original fic]].
* Women's gymnastics is quite prone to [[YuriFan femmeslash]]. Shippers pounce upon the slightest bit of LesYay.
* There's a dedicated fandom for FormulaOne and the fanfics are usually slash fiction; popular pairings are usually between teams (e.g. Button/Hamilton, Webber/Vettel) and it isn't necessarily always between drivers - Christian Horner is probably the most popular non-driver to appear in F1 fanfiction.
* Believe it or not, there is a healthy [[UsefulNotes/{{AmericanFootball}} NFL]] fanfiction community. Tom Brady/Peyton Manning seems to be avery popular [[http://peyton-tom.livejournal.com/ slash pairing]]. Brett Favre is another common subject of fanfiction.

[[folder: Theatre ]]

* Pairing up KristinChenoweth and IdinaMenzel, the original ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' protagonists, is quite popular.
* An unhealthy number of people have started shipping Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess, the stars of ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'''s 25th anniversary. The fact that Sierra is engaged and Ramin is ''married'' doesn't seem to have slowed them down any.

[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* People apparently ship [[SomethingPositive Randal Millholand]][=/=][[GirlsWithSlingshots Danielle Corsetto]]. Randal was not amused.
* Shipping AndrewHussie and [[AxisPowersHetalia Hidekaz Himaruya]] became a thing that happens in mid-2011; it might be tongue-in-cheek given it's been stated to arise from both being {{Trolling Creator}}s, but [[PoesLaw who can really know with these things]]? Andrew himself came across a {{Tumblr}} blog dedicated to "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Hussieruya]]" and [[http://twitter.com/#!/andrewhussie/status/111290799857213440 was mildly amused]].
** [[http://www.formspring.me/mspadventures/q/220484618011319778 Hussie weighs in on this trope in general.]]
* An {{In-Universe}} example occurs in ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'': [[http://www.earsforelves.com/archives/630 Elon's diary]]. He writes a story about Luero being defeated so he can become TheHero, [[ShirtlessScene rip his shirt off]], save the day, and [[WishFulfillment have a make-out session with Tanna and Zalanna]].
* Another {{In-Universe}} example, reflecting on the perils of the concept, appears in ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'', when [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20060905 Shelley has the misfortune to encounter some of her own fans.]]

[[folder: Web Original ]]

* Hammohamster basically defines this with her fanfic about WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, and WebVideo/TheIrateGamer slash fics.
** She wrote a hateful fanfic about the FanficCritic on her livejournal account. The fanfic involved the internet persona brutally killing herself.
** She's also written slash fanfics about political figures like GlennBeck and BarackObama (Note: the fanfic is no longer on fanfiction.net anymore. However [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkEY8qEsXrc a review can be found here.]])
* The ''MuggleCast'' guys have quite a bit written about them. It is slightly more popular amongst another spin-off podcast that they did, SmartMouths, but... yeah. There has even been one story written by one of the hosts, though it is pretty much a ''DeadFic'' since she left for Costa Rica.
* There is a disturbing amount of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses fanfiction.
** Fandom can't agree on whether it's all RPS or just some of it is. Obviously the fic where people write [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment 'Noah']] and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall 'Lewis']] and [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses 'Doug']] doing things are RPS. But what about the vast majority of the fics, which use the names [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment 'Spoony,']] [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall 'Linkara,']] and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and have appearances of the characters [[TheSociopath Ask That Guy]], [[KillerRobot Mechakara]], and [[MadScientist Dr. Insano]]?
*** So it gets complicated when it actually ''is'' dark RealPersonFic. The Critic getting humiliated, tortured, beheaded, mutilated, gangbanged, snuffed and so on is A-OK, but when the KinkMeme asks for Doug abuse, everyone suddenly gets too scared to post anything.
** It's also a little complicated because of the question who is really a ''character''? Sure [[WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses Ask That Guy]] is, [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic the Critic]] is. [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] is, same with [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick the Chick]]. But what about [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]]? MarzGurl? JewWario? It's like a sliding scale of AlterEgoActing and the line isn't always clear when you go further down.
* Website/{{Literotica}} calls these "Celebrity" fics, and has an entire section devoted to them.
* Youtube-celebrities [[http://www.youtube.com/user/charlieissocoollike Charlie McDonnel]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/nerimon Alex Day]] were quite {{Squick}}ed to discover that [[OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs people had been writing slash of them]]. Charlie made a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6cTConAZBo reaction video]] as well.
** Actually, most of them think it's pretty funny. [[http://www.youtube.com/user/charlieskies?blend=1&ob=5 Charlieskies]] has even written his own stuff. BreakingTheFourthWall, much?
** Alex Day also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUBnhLr0Erk admitted to writing his own slashfic]] about several female Youtubers, notably the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/fiveawesomegirls Five Awesome Girls]], under the pseudonym of [[http://ytslash4boys.tumblr.com/ Kyle Salmon]].
* The majority of [[Franchise/TheSlendermanMythos Slenderman]] fanfiction is WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID related. The cast noticed almost immediately and commented that it was both creepy and flattering at the same time.[[note]]This was in-character, but given the nature of Slenderman stories and the fact that Everyman HYBRID in particular has a large amount of direct interaction with fans, it's a given that this is their actual opinion as well.[[/note]]
* There's serious shipping going on in the [[Creator/AchievementHunter Achievement Hunter]] fandom, especially Michael/Gavin slash in every setting and situation imaginable.
* LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys get slashed every once in a while. The preferred pairing seems to be [[LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} Emile]]/[[LetsPlay/ProtonJon Jon]].

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Website/FanFictionDotNet used to have a ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' section, which was, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin naturally]], full of RealPersonFic about celebrities brutalizing each other. The authors in that section always responsibly rated their works T or M for [[ChunkySalsaRule the obvious reason]]. The entire section was discontinued for [[CompletelyMissingThePoint using real people]] and describing brutal violence without an appropriate rating.
* Bryke is not unheard of in the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fandom.
** Also, a certain LJ community wrote a story that shipped the show's martial art's consultant with other members of the production crew. [[http://booter-freak.deviantart.com/art/SRS-BUSINESS-GAIS-78883230 He was not happy when he found out.]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''Fanfic/WestboroInEquestria'' has three actual members of the controversial [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church Westboro Baptist Church]] ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Phelps Fred Phelps]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirley_Phelps-Roper Shirley Phelps-Roper]] and [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2012/10/03/an-interview-with-jack-wu-the-westboro-baptist-church-member-running-for-kansas-state-school-board/ Jack Wu]]) being transported to Equestria.
