Authors often have conflicted reactions to fan fiction set in "their" universe, which sometimes leads to the aforementioned FanworkBan. Creator/JKRowling has largely embraced ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfics, albeit with certain limitations, for example, and Creator/TamoraPierce [[http://www.tamora-pierce.net/frequently-asked-questions/publishing-faq/ advises aspiring writers]] that fan fiction can be a good way to hone one's writing skills. Sir Creator/TerryPratchett acknowledged it exists and was cool about it, pointing out that ''everything works so long as people are sensible about it.'' He added two caveats: anyone doing ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fanfics shouldn't even ''think'' of doing it for money, and authors should take care not to put it where he might see it -- since he didn't want to risk being accused of plagiarising his plagiarists (so to speak), however inadvertently, for his own future plots. Creator/GeorgeRRMartin, author of the epic fantasy series ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[http://grrm.livejournal.com/151914.html expressed his disdain for the practice]], saying that "creating your own characters is a part of writing." He's even gone so far as to threaten legal action should he become aware of any fan fiction set in the Westeros universe. In contrast, writer/journalist James Bow [[http://bowjamesbow.ca/2010/05/07/in-defence-of-f.shtml makes a rather firm case]] for supporting fanfics, pointing out that it forms a stepping stone ''towards'' creating your own characters and setting. As far as media businesses are concerned, reactions have ranged from Franchise/ArchieComics demanding immediate removal to Creator/{{Paramount}} taking some of the better ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fanfics and having them published in print books.

One famous 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 -- including the explanation of Akane's mallet as either a [[KiAttacks 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 -- were never touched on in the 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.

Another famous example is the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic ''FanFic/TheDracoTrilogy'', which was apparently so widely read that details such as Blaise Zabini being female and Ginny's name being Virginia were taken to be canon, [[OutdatedByCanon although they were both refuted by later books]].

Although fanfic exploded along with [[TheInternet the Internet]], it existed ''well'' before the Net did. Such luminaries as John Stuart Mill contributed unauthorized, original stories set in a fictional universe. Before medieval French troubadours were shipping [[Myth/ArthurianLegend Lancelot and Guinevere]], the ancient Greeks were writing plays about relationships between characters in ''Literature/TheIliad''. In Creator/{{Plato}}'s ''Literature/{{Symposium}}'' one character complains that a play by Creator/{{Aeschylus}} got the characterization of Achilles and Patroclus wrong. [[SlashFic Namely, that it got the]] LoverAndBeloved dynamic backwards.

Not all fanfic is written, though that's the most common form. It can be in any [[{{Formats}} format]] that can tell a story. In Japan, {{manga}} ''{{doujinshi}}'' (amateur "comic books") are a common vehicle; and with the increasing ease of their production on personal computers, [[FanVid fan videos]] (ranging from {{anime}} series, to ''Franchise/StarWars'') have also appeared.

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. Furthermore, characters can become [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] by the feedback loops of fanfiction, sometimes [[MemeticMutation changing dramatically from their original form]].

No statement on the legality of fanfic has ever been given in American formal law or in its courts. Some argue that it's a form of copyright infringement; however, see [[http://digitalcommons.lmu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1347&context=elr "Legal Fictions: Copyright, Fan Fiction, and a New Common Law"]], and note the above precedents. The two most common arguments for fanfic being legal involve either implied consent -- companies and authors have every right to enact a FanworkBan as evidenced by fanfiction.net's banlist but are mostly tolerant -- or fair use -- the non-profit, educational and transformative use of the work justifies its existence. The latter is the main argument that sparked the development of the Organization of Transformative Works, a fan labor advocacy site.

Currently, the [[NotableFanfictionArchives largest source of fanfiction on the Net]] (and probably anywhere else) is the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly named]] Website/FanFictionDotNet, which as of 2013, offers 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'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.
