Widely popular on the Internet since the early days of Usenet, fan fiction is a genre of literature in which fans of a particular film, television show, or book, create original stories that sort of pick up where their obsession left off, using the same characters and settings as the works to which they pay homage. And of course, the Internet being what it is, the most prominent ‘fanfic’ to date seems to be homoerotic Star Trek and X-Files episodes. Be that as it may, a new breed of fanfic has been cropping up as of late, one with a peculiar twist: As if you didn’t get enough the first time, additions to The Diary of Anne Frank are growing in abundance. Ugh. A strange obsession for sure. So much for authenticity. (c/o memepool)
