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.

Nock | Alec Lightwood

Originally posted by bonniebird

Either you or Alec had come up with the fantastic idea to shoot at each other from across the warehouse. Stupid? Yes. Fun? Absolutely.

So now here the two of you are, one hundred paces from one another with an arrow nocked, ready to shoot each other.

He’s in his leather jacket again, the one that accentuates the curve of his shoulders and pulls tight against his biceps. You’re staring at him, admiring the boy from a distance.

At least until his arrow hits the wooden beam five feet to your right. You glare at him and release an arrow that hits at just about the same place but on the opposite side of the warehouse.

He rolls his eyes, or at least you assumes that he is because he’s far away.

“Come on! Are we doing this or what?” He calls.

It’s now your turn to roll your eyes and you do. “I’ve been ready Lightwood. And anyway, what could go wrong?”

He has the nerve to turn into a smart aleck and begin to list off all the things that could go wrong, which granted, was quite a lot of reasons.

“We could accidentally hit an essential tendon, shoot each other’s eye out, break our steles and not be able to heal each other, we could…”

“Oh my god Alec, are we doing this or what?”

“Okay okay!” He calls back and the both of you nock your arrows, him with red feathers and yours with black feathers. In unison the two of you count down from three.

“3…2…1..!”

You both release at the same time, the arrows fly from the bow and… collide between the two of you. Metal head meeting metal head, they smack with a crash and both go clattering to the ground.

Alec looks at you, you look at him and the two of you burst out laughing. What had the two of you expected? He begins heading towards you and you jump into his arms. He spins you around and then giggle. Your lips meet and you stretch up in an attempt to get closer to him. His palms rest on your hips, radiating warmth through your leggings. Your fingers are traveling up his chest and over his shoulders and you just savor him. At least until he pries you off, whining about how he needs to breathe at some point.

You stretch up on your tiptoes and lick his cheek before running back to your previous position and shouting, “We should do it again!”
