FanFiction writers are often maligned for creating derivative works but in reality, fanfic writers are creative, talented people who are simply using the written word to pay tribute to the shows they love. In Texas, the troupe at the Austin Improv have taken that concept to the next level with a show called Fandom: Improvised Fan Fiction in Your Favorite Worlds.
Every Saturday night for the past six weeks, the company has donned costumes pieces and invited an audience in to help tell tales from the world’s most popular fandoms. They started with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, went on to Lord of the Rings, Batman and the Hunger Games. And on February 23, they’ll be closing out with a fandom chosen by popular vote.
