So, is there a term...

So, is there a term for stories that are written to respond to other stories (or entire genres of stories)? In SGA, Helenish wrote Take Clothes Off As Directed as a response to Xanthe's General Sheppard BDSM stories. In HL, Lum made the vid "Not a Virgin Anymore" when she got annoyed at all of the Puritan/inexperienced Duncan stories.

What is that called? Reaction fic? Answer fic? Piss-on-you fic?

Would you call it issue fic? I don't think I would...

Help!

ETA: I asked because I want to write an article about this sort of fic for Fanlore.org -- but it would be easier to do if "this sort of fic" had a name.
