June Something, questions 6-9

Day 6: What's a fandom that you wish had a bigger following?

Hyakki Yakoushou because maybe we would have full scantrads... I can dream...

Day 7: What's the longest time you've been in a fandom. Not necessarily your oldest fandom, but a fandom that you started and still continue to read/write/create content for in some way.

Hmmm, I wondered in the previous June Something post if Greek myth counted as a fandom. If so, I have never stopped.

I had my childhood obsession phase, my "there are so many cool modern plays about these characters - no I don't know what fanfic is" phase, my "OMG it's so gay" phase, my "I actually can use them in fandom memes" phase.

Day 8: Crack!fic - We all know it. What's your opinion of it, and if you want, show us an example.

Oh, you know. We all know it. I know it. But when I think about it it's hard to describe.
In a way, even when it's not meant to be an alternate universe, I think it's kind of one. Where the importance of consequences is very different than in canon.

Though of course, some canon I'm in have crack elements. Some arcs of Deadpool are some kind of crack version of the Marvelverse. In general, Deadpool works very well for crackfic as a fandom. Since just don't have to change the concept of the character, just to exagerate it. But does it still count as crack?

And you know, I will self-rec the Pokemon fic I wrote for a challenge: Problèmes de compréhension. The cracky part is 1) gratuitous slash, and 2) trying to translate what is obviously game mechanisms into the characters' life.

Day 9: Drop the cast of a fandom you follow into a reality tv show - who/what/why? If you need a list of reality TV show examples, click here.

* 7 Seeds characters would absolutely kill it at Survivor.
* I want to see Gideon and Harrow as a team in LEGO masters, just for the lol. Harrow would but the bone piece everywhere. It's her aesthetic.
* Haikyuu!! cast competing for American Ninja Warrior. Some are very good, and some are awful.
* The Magnus Archives cast in an alternate version of Big Brother where Elias sells their office shenanigans to tv and not only to his Eldritch Eye God. Cette entrée a été crosspostée au https://flo-nelja.dreamwidth.org/701511.html. Commentez où vous voulez.
