Anne Jamison states in her novel, “Why Fanfiction is Taking Over the World”, that fanfiction is “a way of thinking critically about the media you consume, of being aware of all the implicit assumptions that canonical work carries with it, and of considering the possibility that those assumptions might not be the only way things have to be”(Jamison xiii). She makes the point of highlighting how the art of fanfiction is able to allow its users to find the art within art itself. Jamison highlights why most of the writers choose to do begin fanfiction the first place. They have a love for writing and a love for their "fandom", the topic their writing is based off of, so they choose to combine the two together.
Fanfiction's growing popularity comes with a lot of writers that come forth about their writing. Author of the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey, E.L. James, revealed about how her successful triolgy was inspired by the book-gone-movie Twilight. Many other writers have come forward about their fanfiction writing as well. Fanfiction isn't just classified as written works, it also includes fan-drawn art, and film clips that are based around works.
