Fanon

From UnknowableWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The term fanon refers to anything that is not canon. The term applies to anything that has not been implicitly stated within the novels or by JKR herself, although it often refers to something that is widely accepted as truth within a fandom. For instance, the ship Remus/Sirius is considered common fanon—although there is no concrete evidence within the books, the pairing frequently appears in fanfiction.

An idea—be it a ship, theory or simple trivia—does not need to be widespread within the fandom to be considered fanon; it is a blanket term referring to anything that is not canon.
