Fiction is the classification for any story or setting that is derived from imagination—in other words, not based strictly on history or fact. Fiction can be expressed in a variety of formats, including writings, live performances, films, television programs, animations, video games, and role-playing games, though the term originally and most commonly refers to the narrative forms of literature including novels, novellas, short stories, and plays. Fiction is occasionally used in its narrowest sense to mean simply any “literary narrative”. — Wikipedia
