Fan Fictions are stories created by amateur creators based on the work of others. These are stories or works created by fans of existing famous characters from movies, TV shows, and popular culture in a totally new series of events.
With the advancement of technology and popularity of internet, amateur creators have found their way out. It has now become really easy for them to explore, create and publish. Not going by the name, fan fictions are not necessarily created by fans. Often people create fan fiction to criticise a character in their own perception.
