How many times do we need to remind the readers that we're writing about fiction?[edit]

The use of the word "fictional" seems kind of excessive and clunky. Wouldn't it be sufficient to clearly establish that it's a fictional near-future sci-fi setting created in the late 1980s in the opening paragraph? Do we really need to go out of our way to remind the reader that we're describing the fictional elements of the fictional setting of a work of fiction half a dozen times? The Harry Potter universe article only uses "fiction" and variations thereof twice outside the opening paragraph. -- Gordon Ecker, WikiSloth (talk) 03:51, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
