The danger of doing that is that legal battles might erupt. While fan fiction initially uses preexisting properties, it is the original characters that will cause the problem. If a comic company were to publish a story that was originally a fan-fiction, in any way, they will eliminate original characters as much as possible. There is one annual of Generation X that is a prime example of this. The Annual was an adaptation of the novel that was co-written by the one creator. The adaptation dropped an original character that was put in the story, as well as cut out a second story that was part of that novel.
@cbishop: Anything that has unofficial stuff out that is being sold redefined fanfiction. Trust me, I've seen various things in the Amazon Fulfillment Centers that are unlicensed merchandise being sold. Take time to look up some books on Amazon, or even e-books. There are a few minecraft stories out there that I don't think is linked to Mojag.
@richgenx: But 1) Is that comics fanfic? and 2) It needs to be official. In other words, like one of the Image guys said, "Yeah, I'll publish this fanfic in the back pages of my comic," or Marvel said, "We're publishing this Spidey fanfic as a novel," or something like that.
I'm trying to come up with a solid reason to be able to add Fan Fiction to the wiki as a concept, because I think it should be defined in the same way Science Fiction and Pulp Fiction are defined in the wiki. The problem I'm foreseeing is that the concept would then have its own forum which would then be a Fan Fiction forum. I think that would cause the concept to encounter resistance without a solid reason for it to exist.
