Good Meta Stories Like Simulacrum

it's pretty new so it looks like a bunch of salty fanboys are negging the reviews, which I find unwarranted.
Rainbow Destructor - A sci-fi novella about a space crew trapped in a rainbow star that... well, you'll see.
The Perfectly Regular at Magic High School - A "parody" of some anime I've never watched; it's basically an original story making fun of Magic High School Power Fantasy light novels.
The Madoka Series - Fan fictions of Puella Magi Madoka Magica about magical girls in Mexico that become increasingly absurd and self-aware over time.
And plenty more, but all I can say is that I love meta stories.
