Book filter: Fanfic of real people

What books can you think of that are essentially fanfic of real-life people? I've read "American Wife" (Laura Bush), "The Royal We" (Prince William & Kate Middleton), and am in the middle of "The First Affair" (Monica Lewinsky & Bill Clinton), and am finding myself really attracted to these types of books. Are there other books out there like that?

How can I organize a long and messy fanfic so I can post it on AO3?

I have a fanfic that's currently in a bunch of bits and pieces in Google Docs, and I'd like to be able to consolidate them at some point, do a thorough spell-and-grammar check and decide where to make chapter breaks. Eventually the work is to be posted on Archive of Our Own. What's the best way to go about this? [more inside]

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? [more inside]

Harry Potter fanfic recommendations

I'm looking for good (as in well-written and canon-compliant) and preferably complete or regularly updating fics that expand the HP series. They can be prequels or sequels or depict "missing" time in between the books. [more inside]

Gay erotica/romances written by actual gay men? (NSFW)

Most of the slash fanfic I read is probably written by 14-year-old girls. Please direct me to the real stuff written by real gay men, so that I may develop snobbish taste in yet another one of my pastimes. [more inside]

Wanted: well written fan fiction

Prompted by this thread on the blue, I'm calling upon the hivemind to recommend some GOOD fan fiction or slash fiction or both. As long as it's entertaining and doesn't involve an inner goddess, I'm down.
