I'm approaching it from one single point of view, knowing that it has innumerable different angles.
Fiction and reality have coexisted since the dawn of mankind. Since we can Think, Dream and Wish. The line between fiction and reality is a very thin one, always was. We cross from one world into the other in such a commonly manner that many times we can't discern which is which. It fascinates us, it frightens us. It can make us to artists, it can make us to thieves. It isn't in us to dwell on what is real and what not for we must continue our fiction to create a better reality. And our fiction comes from reality. Reality makes fiction, fiction makes reality. There's no beginning, no end. They go hand in hand.
