Misused (page action crowner 1/4/14): Mutually Fictional get usage counts
- Milestone and DC Comics
- DC Comic's Earth-One and Earth-Two
- Bongo Comic's crossovers between The Simpsons and Futurama
- Through the Looking-Glass
- The Number of the Beast
- The Man in the High Castle
- Homestuck and the Midnight Crew
Mistaken for Reciprocal Fiction Paradox:
- The page image.
- El Chapulín Colorado and El Chavo del ocho
- The Twilight Zone episode "A World of his Own"
- GURPS Infinite Worlds
- Inspector Gadget and Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats
- The Simpsons and Stargate SG-1
- The Simpsons and Futurama
And that's only the main page. What do we do? Expand the trope to include the one-sided thing? Rename the trope? Put all the examples that don't fit here onto their relevant tropes?
EDIT: That's what comes of copying and pasting from Notepad without disabling word-wrap first: the text gets messed up.

In order to be the current definition of Mutually Fictional, the upcoming crossover episode "Simpsonrama" would have to maintain the continuity established that Futurama is still fictional (And we all know how good The Simpsons is at keeping continuity.) It would have to require the specific plot something along the line of Bart and Lisa watching Futurama while Fry and Bender are watching The Simpsons, only to discover that they are watching each other, then they cross over through the TV. If, like the synopsis suggests, Futurama just takes place in the future, then that is not this trope.
So, the entire premise that they need to cross over while acknowledging the fictionality of the other work is way to specific, so it isn't even a trope. So, as stated before, it's Too Rare to Trope. Conclusion: MERGE
