Throwback to when I was younger and read the Percy Jackson books and always related to the demigods, which made me think I was one (except i obviously couldn’t be one because both my parents were still alive), so i wrote an entire essay about why I was twelve and still hadn’t met a satyr or a monster, and when I later published it on Wattpad it caused me to meet new friends which fueled my love for creating stuff which, in return, is what has made me start writing my own choose-your-own-adventure-novel

but no turns out I related to them because I had adhd

Everything is fanfiction


So the question “are the Percy Jackson books technically fanfiction?” has been bouncing around in my head for months. And I came to a conclusion: it is fanfiction.


Now if you, the reader of this essay, are questioning how they can be fanfiction, let me explain.

Fanfiction is when you take an already existing idea/media (like Avatar: the Last Airbender for example) and write a story that’s either: set in that universe with original characters or a story using those characters. Those two things can be combined and squished however you please to as well.

Now, there’s mythology, which is a historical thing and a religion. I can hear someone saying “but people don’t write fanfiction about religions!” Oh yes, yes they do. I have read Jesus fanfiction, and boy is it wild.

Which also leads to these questions:

  • Is Dante’s Divine Comedy fanfiction?
  • And is historical fiction fanfiction?

I’m going to answer those first one and say that yes, Dante’s Divine Comedy is fanfiction. It’s based on a pre-existing thing. The Bible can be counted as one big story, the Old Testament telling the stories of prophets and creation stuff while the New Testament is about Jesus. I went to a Catholic school for years and we discussed how the Bible is essentially just a bunch of stories, so I’m confident in saying that.

But mythology? Really? Is anything based on mythology fanfiction? Yes and no, the no is easy to push away though. Any analysis/informative thing regarding mythology is not fanfiction because it’s just the facts about it and/or insight. However, fictional things based on mythology can be. Which means Percy Jackson is a Greek Mythology modern au that tells the story of some original characters.


So case closed? Nope. I still have to answer the historical fiction question. I’m going to use Hamilton as an example here, because it’s easy and I do enjoy listening to that soundtrack.


So, Lin Manuel Miranda decided to write a musical about Alexander Hamilton, the founding father that appears on the ten dollar bill. He kept the overall same story as Alexander Hamilton’s life, except he changed a few things (Alex and Angelica being romantically involved, who confronted Alex about the Reynolds affair, also he bought slaves later in life too). So is Hamilton a fanfiction? I think so!

Fanfiction is taking an existing thing and making a new creative work about it. This “existing thing” can be anything from what you’d expect fanfiction to be written about (like a book, movie, or tv show) to more eccentric things (like mythologies, Jesus, and history).


Historical fiction is just an AO3 tag now.


But where are the lines between fanfiction and just fiction? I’m going to use Marissa Meyer’s books for this!


So there’s the Lunar Chronicles and then there’s the other series that I’m calling the Renegades Trilogy for convenience and because I don’t know the actual name of the series. The Lunar Chronicles is based on fairy tales, making it fanfiction. However, the Renegades Trilogy is not explicitly based on anything. Marissa Meyer came up with the idea and wrote the three novels. Yes, there are similar ideas to those books, but that’s just because superheroes are cool and people like to write/make media about them.

So basically almost everything is fanfiction.


Tl;dr: almost everything is fanfiction, historical fiction is just an AO3 tag now, and I’ve started a war with every literature teacher everywhere.

It’s ironic that Apollo complained about the dating pool as a Greek god and how it was difficult because you could be flirting with someone then surprise! Actually your sister! Like “boo-hoo Zeus sleeps around too much”

Because this dude has sired so many kids by now 100% his children are paranoid af over it.

Austin Lake, meeting a fellow musician, getting a crush on them, they hang out after band class… Then Austin is like… Wait… they’re too good at music. As if their dad is some kind of god of music or something. Oh. Oh no. Ohnononono-

Kayla, too. Like “hmm, well she’s cute and she’s super into archery and- wait… you don’t think she’s…? DAD. HEY DAD, APOLLO, I NEED TO TALK TO YOU FOR A SECOND IT’S IMPORTANT”

Meanwhile Will is like “the part of Texas I’m from, people date their cousins all the time! You and I will fit right in, Nico! Y'know, except for the fact they’re violently homophobic. :)”
