Dan On FANDOMS

People who are dedicated to a particular show, book series, band, celebrity etc..
FANGIRLS AND FANBOYS
* Do not call them crazy. They prefer the word dedicated

ex: “Have you seen her Tumblr account? It’s all about The Fault In Our Stars and Ansel Elgort....she’s such a fangirl.”
Stan
Combination of “stalker” and
“fan.” A person who cares more
for knowing every little thing
about their idol than
supporting them.
Shipping
(n, v) When you like the idea of two people being in a relationship. This does not have to be a romantic relationship and can just mean friendship; you can define it.
OTP (One True Pairing)
The one relationship you ship the most.

ex.
Johnlock (John Watson + Sherlock)
Larry (Louis Tomlinson + Harry Styles)
Troyler (Troye Sivan + Tyler Oakley)
Cake (Calum Hood + Luke Hemmings)
Fremione (Fred Weasley + Hermione Granger)
Stydia (Stiles Stilinski + Lydia Martin)
Swarkles (Robin Sparkles + Swarley aka Robin Sherbotzsky + Barney Stinson)

Canon
When a ship becomes real.
ex.

Bromance / BroTP
The shipping of two male characters or people in a non-romantic way

ex.
“OMG O’Brosey (Dylan O’Brien+Tyler Posey) is the ultimate bromace!”
Foe tp
two fictional people who make the perfect nemeses
Feels
Fangirl word for “feelings.” Refers to an intense wave of emotion that is unwanted and often unavoidable.
ex.
“I am having so many feels right now, Benedict Cumberbatch look so brilliant at the Oscars!”
"I can't"
When having feels the terms “I can’t” or “I can’t even”
are generally used. When someone says these terms it
means that they can no longer contain their emotions for a
specific person, show, or ship.
ex.
“MY OTP KISSED I CAN’T EVEN RIGHT NOW!!!!!”
When someone is “in a glass case of emotion”
- Ron Burgundy
*DON'T criticize someone's OTP. EVER.
Fanfiction
Fiction, often romances, written by fans about fictional characters or real people.
Imagines
Short versions of fan-fictions. Often exclude setting and development of the relationship.
(Y/N)

This can also be used in different variations

ex.
(f/n) - Friend's Name
(y/l/n) - Your Last Name
Smut
fanfiction that is erotic
in nature
Alternate Universe (AU)
Short imagines, often using pictures and are personalized versions using (y/n)
Tumblr
A discrete website for interesting yet random people, where you can express yourself without being judged. You can post whatever you like, whenever you like. Not everyone understands Tumblr, so don’t worry about idiots from school/work
The End Of Your Social Life
Asdfghjkl
(alt. alowkditngvms or qpeworflavniuerg)
When someone is feeling so many feels and their brain is being over run with emotions, they lose control of their typing skills.

"People are able to connect with each other more easily when they both watch the same show or are interested in the same movie, drawing people within a society together."
Fandom:
a hardcore following whose devotees are up on the latest facts about their show or character, spend hours and hours watching re-runs, dress up like characters in their fandom for “cosplay” (costume reenactment), write their own fan fictions, and just generally obsess about all things regarding their fandom.

At #1 according to 'The Richest'
Game of Thrones (GoT)

DAN ON SHIPPING
Fandoms as Help
A lot of people owe their lives to fandoms.

Having people love the same thing as you and be just a strange and crazy about something helps keep a lot of people in the clear.

It helps a lot of people make new friends on the internet while they can't make any connections with people irl (in real life).
COnflicts
While these tight-knit fandoms get along well with one another, they tend to fight with those who do not share their love and interest for a specific group or person.
This leads to conflicts between the fandoms and occurs often during awards season when two fandoms debate on who deserves the award.
