Huh! I would have assumed it was written in chat rather than done in a chat dialogue format. After all, we never called it "email fic" that I recall in the pre-chat era even when stories used Internet platform style dialogue.

Just a further thought, I suppose it might also depend on the format, even if written in chat. If the chat platform was essentially being used to RP then it would be an RP fic regardless of platform. But I expect the same term could be used for two different things.

It's a canon term for chatlog that fandom uses - most of the dialog in the actual comic is "pesterlogs" (the canon chat client is called "pesterchum".)
