Fanfic/ is definitely misused if it's about a writer and not a specific work or series — although there are precedents with WebAnimation or WebVideo/ compiling the works of the same creators, and not so much about the authors themselves.

Aren't Troper pages reserved for use by the troper themselves, to the point of being uneditable by anyone other than the troper and the mods? If that's what you're talking about, I don't think another troper ought to be trying to "move" this content to another page.

If you want to make a Creator page for a fanfic writer based on the information you have about them as a creator, then that seems perfectly reasonable, whether or not the author is also a troper.
