I know there's imposter syndrome, but is there a word for fear that you might be making a variant of an idea, in your fanwork, for something that will be used in the piece of entertainment of which you're a fan?

It's one of the main reasons why I don't make fanstuff of shows that are currently airing UNLESS it's something which is only capable of happening in fanfiction/fanart and whatnot.

If you search 'plagiarism phobia', there are results of people talking about having the same sort of issue.

With that said, I don't think there's an actual term for it..

Like the other anon said, there isn't a term specifically for this, but it's probably an example of a broader symptom of something (if that makes sense).

Ah, all right. Yeah, I think plagiarism phobia is close to the term I'm looking for. Thank you.
