The term comes from Supernatural fandom (the show was created by Eric Kripke), and is a play on Jossed. It's what happens when canon validates a plot idea that someone has previously written in a fanfiction story. To according Supernatural Wiki "As opposed to the fanon crushing Joss Whedon, Eric seemed to plunder our fanfiction see into our hearts and fulfill our fannish desires."


According to Supernatural Wiki, clex_monkie89 coined the term in an instant message conversation documented on Livejournal on 23 October 2006.

clex_monkie89 IM with mikhale:

Mikhale:i am so, so annoyed that this can't really happen. CM: SH. It's canon until we get Jossed. You know. If getting Jossed is getting your fanon disproved getting Kripked is getting your fanon proved.[1]
