Character formation in fan fiction

Scherf, Manuela: Character formation in fan fiction based on popular TV series. Universität Wien, Diplomarbeit, 2008. Abstract: "This study is concerned with character formation processes in fan fiction, a literary genre that gains more and more importance through the internet. Two contemporary TV series – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars -, and the related media fandoms serve as the basis of this investigation. It is the aim of this study to create a typology that explains character formation processes in heterosexual romantic fan fiction, based on episodic television series".
