Fix-it fic is fanfiction that changes something about canon that the fan writing the fic wasn't happy with. This can be anything from explaining plot holes or inconsistent characterization to bringing a favorite character back from the dead.

In some cases, fix-it fic is written to "fix" fanfiction rather than canon. This is most effective when the piece of fanfiction being "fixed" is sufficiently well-known that readers of the fix-it story will recognize the new story as being in conversation with the previous fanwork. This type of fic is also called Responsefic.
