I *hate* it when metafics (like "The Round Files" and any number of other excellent stories) get lumped in and condemned along with actorfics (like "Homewrecker" or "The Murder of Tea Leoni" or whatever it was called).
Short of actual actorfics (which don't seem to have reared their ugly heads mych[sic] recently), now & in the past, most references I've noticed tend to be harmless humourous little injokes in which, say, M or S discovers an old magazine in which the other appears in an embarassing[sic] photo identical to one of DD or GA's.
Noun: "(uncountable, fandom slang) such fan fiction collectively"
I can see actorfic being posted to private mailing lists, but this is *such* a public forum, and like how fanfiction isn't posted to atbvs and ata, actorfic (which is, in a way, a discussion about the actor) shouldn't be posted here, for essentially the same reason.
I've seen the occasional thing... and I know it is out there... but the suggestion I saw sort of implied that actorfic was more prevelant[sic] in the Star Trek fan fiction community.

An early article on Slate, otherwise sympathetic to slash fiction, declared that "actorfic" violated fanfic's basic principle of being fantasy: "Writers risk enraging straight actors. Slash infuriates actors even when it focuses only on fictional characters."
