Joshua Jackson Celebrates Dawson’s Creek Fan Fiction

In the Funny or Die video embedded above, actor Joshua Jackson staged a mini-festival outside Comic-Con to celebrate fan fiction writers who love his Dawson’s Creek character, Pacey Witter.

During his satirical San Diego Comic-Con skit, Jackson read from actual fan fiction stories about his character. There are more than 1,000 fan fiction stories about Dawson’s Creek on FanFiction.net, and most of them focus on his character, Pacey.

Here’s more about the project from MTV: “For any fans that doubted the authenticity of this gathering, the actor revealed that the Pacey-Con fan fiction was the real deal, written by real ‘Dawson’s’ fans. Unfortunately, Comic-Con security wasn’t necessarily convinced: Jackson was thrown out of the San Diego event.”
