meta stories are meta

I really love works of fiction that use the style, setup, or form of another media product as a means of storytelling and sometimes subversion. For example: TEDxSummerisle
(complete with tweets and botched livestream) and The Theory of Narrative Causality
, written primarily in the form of Livejournal posts by the Sherlock Homes fandom (inc comments and bits of fanfic) as well as GChats, TVTropes, and related media. What other similar works are out there?

* My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter
- using Pinterest as a means of storytelling, though it's not exactly written "in the style of typical Pinterest posts"
* Problems From Everyday Life
- Hannibal via AskMefi. I'd love to see this done as an actual AskMefi page, green and all.
* Seducing a Certain Delicious Prospect
- interactive in the style of the Fallen London game
* No Reservations: Narnia
- Someone film this, please
It doesn't have to be strictly fanfiction (as in, the story being told can be wholly original, like Toddler Daughter). I'm more looking for clever uses of the format and style as another level of storytelling and atmosphere-building.
