Currently, the [[NotableFanFictionArchives largest source of fan fiction on the Net]] (and probably anywhere else) is the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly named]] [[Website/FanFictionDotNet FanFiction.Net]], which as of 2013 offered approximately nine million stories across all but a select few canons (which were banned due to creator request) and an automated system for posting. A newer site called Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn is starting to nip at [[Website/FanFictionDotNet FanFiction.Net]]'s heels, though, with over 1.7 million stories and less restrictions on what can and cannot be posted. And to top it all off, in mid-2013, Amazon.com joined in the act with its Kindle Worlds program, which allows for the publication and sale (!) of fan fiction from specific 'verses.

The distinction between fanfic and original fiction, as we know it today, is largely created by modern copyright law; much of classical writing is actually "fanfiction" based on older sources. The major distinction between fanfic and a story inspired by another story is that the story a fanfic is based on has one or more "official" versions, usually owned by a company, a creator, or both. Thus, things like ''[[http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/text/infancythomas-a-mrjames.html The Infancy Gospel of Thomas]]'', a piece of biblical apocrypha featuring [[CharacterizationTags Angry!Uber!]]Baby Jesus, or variations on [[Myth/ArthurianLegend Arthurian legend]] where there is no Holy Grail and Lancelot's affair with Guinevere never happens, would not "count" by this definition.

In the end, more and more media outlets are recognizing that fanfiction and other fan works are a simple fact of life. And as art imitates life, it's now possible to find ''fake'' fanfiction created as part of a marketing campaign. For example, the 2010 season of Showtime's ''Series/UnitedStatesOfTara'' introduced a new character, an artist who had created and published a comic book character named "Princess Valhalla Hawkwind". As part of the promotional buildup for this, Showtime actually created a [[http://www.princessvalhalla.com "fan site"]] complete with fanfic, fan art, and fan video.

Some fanfiction becomes well-known enough to influence other fanfics, which themselves influence more fanfics, and so on in a domino effect. This can and does result in the creation and perpetuation of {{Fanon}} -- when one author comes up with a "cool detail" and others blindly copy it without realizing it was her invention and didn't belong to the official source material. Furthermore, characters can become {{Flanderized}} by the feedback loops of fanfiction, sometimes [[MemeticMutation changing dramatically from their original form]].

Another example of this is the manga/anime ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', released well before the Internet became ubiquitous and when many fans had no easy access to the original source material. All manner of details[[note]] (including the explanation of Akane's mallet as either a [[KiManipulation ki attack]] or as residing in a [[HyperspaceMallet hyperdimensional pocket]], her {{Flanderization}} into a "psychobitch", her [[LethalChef lethal cooking]] -- rather than being just bad -- and the names and fates of the many {{missing mo|m}}thers)[[/note]] were never touched on in the actual show but became standardized in ''Ranma'' fan fiction over the course of approximately a decade. The process was accelerated and exacerbated by the appearance of fanfiction written by people who had never actually seen the show itself and whose only exposure to ''Ranma'' was other fanfiction.

fan fiction.



Another problem with fanfiction is sometimes writers don't do their research even when it is very simple. A common occurrence is when an author from a country other than the original work's country of origin writes characters as if they are from their own country. An example is ''Harry Potter'' where non-British writers (particularly American) make characters act and think like an American would; this also happens vice versa as seen in ''Fifty Shades of Grey''.
