Fan fiction has "extended" the life of fictional characters such as Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, James Kirk, Sherlock Holmes and Elizabeth Darcy. It will not be a surprise to ancient history lovers that this is not an original idea. Ovid was writing "fan fiction" about famous ancient lovers during the reign of Augustus, focusing primarily on pairs of lovers: Dido and Aeneas, Penelope and Ulysses, and Paris and Helen, to name just a few. http://ow.ly/ui6DI
