As one of the inspired foundations of Chinese Boys’ Love fictions, Chinese fanfictions have commons and similar origin as those danmei (Boys’ Love) fictions, but the progress of the popularization and influence of the two fictions on Chinese literature, subculture, and targeted groups are slightly different on the Internet. To fulfill the gap in the study of the current importance of Boys’ Love fanfictions, this paper aims to find out the differences and similarities between Boys’ Love fanfictions and Boys’ Love fictions from three different areas, the legalization, motivation of the creation, and the values these two fictions aiming to deliver by comparing 18 papers in both Chinese and English to demonstrate how current Chinese scholars regard the relationship between fanfictions and Boys’ Love fictions.
