- n. A fanfic that uses lyrics from popular music as a basis for its storyline.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Edited to add: Just wanted to point out that fanfic writers have been writing stories around songs for years -- songfic.
A couple of years ago I wrote a songfic where Snape and his backup singers perform "Man of Constant Sorrow" from the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou", just to mess with the Gryffindors' heads.
In fact, this is the very same trailer I used to watch while listening to music, inspiring songfic ideas AND getting me hooked into vidding before I even knew what vidding was!
FF.net doesn’t allow script format stories, 2nd person POV, songfic, various types of punctuation and formatting, or anything they decide is “adult” content, without defining that.
