The Daily Dot directed readers to a Mad Max: Fury Road fanart piece "in which the entire story is retold as an Egyptian hieroglyph." The amazing thing about these is not only does the hieroglyph feature actual Egyptian cuneiform, but that even if you're not a fan of the film, you can still get a sense of the story from this design: the great mythic city with its powerful ruler and citizens desperate for water, the escaping wives, the pursuing warboys, and the savior Furiosa."

Fanfiction discussions continue to crop up alongside other discussions of literature. Montana's Missoula Independent promoted a fanfiction reading by pro writers at a book festival. Meanwhile, an Italian literary festival had a session on fanfiction writing. "Traditionally ignored by the publishing and media industries, fanfiction has been referred to as the refuge of frustrated aspiring writers...The subject is more articulated however, because it touches upon - and includes - literature criticism, copyright, cultural influences, social constructs, and it can't ignore the changes happening in the publishing industry. It's an ongoing conversation that involves an ever growing number of authors, scholars, fans and readers."
