Where Canon and Fanfic Meet

 Here's a discussion about canonical fanfic and noncanonical fanfic.  It matches my observations that privileged people often try to keep the limelight for themselves, while underrepresented folks use fanfic as a way to explore stories that interest them but annoy the mainstream.  This is particularly interesting given the rise of mainstream-released material with major fanfic markers such as shifting time period (Sherlock), genderbending and racebending (double-tap in Elementary), and insertion of original characters (The Hobbit Part 2).
