Character Dislocation
Definition: A more radical manipulation of generic boundaries where the characters are removed from their original setting or location and transported to another.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 171)

Cross Overs
Definition: Blurs the boundaries between different texts.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 170)

Emotional Intensification
Definition: Analyses character motivation and psychology, primarily in situations where characters respond in a caring fashion to the psychological problems and physical hurts of other major characters.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 174)

Eroticisation
Definition: Explorations of the erotic dimensions of characters' lives.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 175)

Expanding the Timeline
Definition: Fiction written about events preceding the original text to expand the original framework to encompass moments in the characters' past to explain current action. Alternatively, the timeline can be expanded to extend the character's future lives beyond the original work. Generally, these works do not contradict the original material, but fulfill the generic promises of the original. Writing beyond the end often means a rejection of the original authors' own version of the characters' fates, a refusal to legitimise unpopular endings.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 163)

Genre Shifting
Definition: Where the work is recontexualised within alternative generic traditions, primarily using a shift in the balance between plot action and characterisation, placing emphasis upon moments that define character relationships rather than using the moment as background or motivation for the dominant plot. There are any number of generic models that can be used to construct these fictions. Romance, mythic adventure, mysteries, court room drama. These stories expand the generic material available, while still drawing heavily on the original work and 'fannish' traditions.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 169)

Moral Realignment
Definition: A extreme form of refocalisation. These stories invert or question the moral universe of the primary text, taking the villains and transforming them into the protagonists.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 168)

Personalisation
Definition: Works that efface the gap between the author's realm of experience and the fictional space of the original text. 'Mary Sue' stories.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 171)

Recontextualisation
Definition: The 'missing scenes' which fill the gaps in the original work, often focusing on the exploration of 'off-screen' actions and behaviours, examining their motivations and creating larger emotional histories for the characters.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 162)

Refocalisation
Definition: Shifts the attention away from the central figures and onto secondary characters.
from Textual Poachers by Henry Jenkins, (Routledge, 1992, p. 165)
