Fanon, also referred to as fanfiction, is a term used to define a fan-created story based on an original work. Fanon in Cities: Skylines is quite different from a typical fanfiction from other works. As there is no real way of writing stories of characters based off Cities: Skylines, an alternate method is to create fan-made cities and landmarks.
