ABH (Anywhere But Here) is a term for fanfic written in the second person. These fics often involve a self-insert. CFAN's fandom glossary linked the term to Star Wars, although it showed up occasionally in Buffy fandom as well.

Anywhere But Here is also the title of two professionally published manga, a film and the novel it was based on, at least one song, and likely a number of fanworks.
