Is this Fanfiction


Okay so basically my novel is about VFD but it's only about VFD because Volunteer Fire Department Is Amazing But I'm taking no element other than the name from Daniel Handler Does that make my novel fan fiction?

1.If all you took was the name: no.
2.If you also took the basic world-setting, even if you twisted it: most likely
3.If you took not just the name but the entire character of this Daniel Handler, even if you twisted it: most likely
4.If both two and three: definitely

My suggestion, if you are still confused on fanfic is to look up some Harry Potter fanfic online and read to get an idea of what fanfic-ers do with it in general.
My understanding is that usually there are a group of characters lifted from the original and put into alternate circumstances or settings. OR there is an entirely new set of characters placed within the original world setting, but usually in a slightly separate venue/rather different circumstances.
