AO3 Top Fandoms (4/20/13)

490

Published on

For the final project in my Data Visualization class I chose to pick a subject I have gained more interested in the past two years. Fanfiction is a form of textual poaching by fans for various mediums including TV, film, books, and even comics. I chose the website Archive of Our Own to gather the data.

AO3 Top Fandoms (4/20/13)

  1. 1. THE WORLD OF FANFICTION Jenna Ballinger unnecessary backstory Sexual tension Climax... FINALLY! More sex Happily ever after The top 10 Fandoms on Archive of your own 4/20/13
  2. 2. Archive of Our Own Archive of Our Own or AO3 is a website that currently houses fanfiction that is uploaded by fans. It’s the second largest database for fanfiction right behind fanfiction.net. More people have started to use AO3 due to it being easier to navigate. It’s part of the Organization for Transformative Works which is a non-profit that is made by fans for fans. They believe that fanworks that are transformative are legitimate. They recently made Time Magazine Staffs 50 Best Websites of 2013 “Fan fiction is one of the great unsung popular literary movements of the past 50 years, but finding what you’re looking for online can involve sorting through mountains of inadequately tagged and frequently dodgy text. Archive of Our Own makes it easy: it’s the most carefully curated, sanely organized, easily browsable and searchable nonprofit collection of fan fiction on the Web, and it serves all fandoms equally, from The A-Team to Zachary Quinto and beyond.” - Time.com
  3. 3. Fanfiction is fan written stories that include characters and settings from TV shows, books, comics, cartoons, etc... Fans take these characters and settings and write stories that vary in subject matter, era, sexual orientation, age, and even sometimes gender. This gives a way for fans to use characters they already know and love and create situations for them that otherwise would not be possible. Fandom Fandom is the term for an entire fan base. It’s short for Fan Kingdom. Many fandoms will name them selves like Gleeks, Sherlockians, and Whovians. Sometimes if there is a large group of people who like more than one show they will name that fandom. There is one for people who like the TV shows Sherlock, Dr. Who, and Supernatural who are called SUPERWHOLOCK. FANFICTION

  9. 9. SDFSD Ships/ and Shipping Ship is short for relationship. When someone “ships” a couple it means that is a couple they like to see together romantically. The overall term is called shipping. There are also OTP’s which stands for “One True Pairing” and that is the ultimate couple for that person. Slash is also a term you may hear. Slash is represented by a slash between two names like this, Kirk/Spock. Generally slash is not canon and many times includes two male characters who many times are heterosexual in canon. Canon and non--canon Canon is the original content from the show, cartoon, comic, book, etc... It’s everything within the show that has already happened. Non-Canon is content that is not in the show but written into a fic by the author. There is also Fanon which is content that the fandom believes to be true about characters or settings but has not been explicitly said in the show.
  10. 10. [Top two SHips per fandom There are twenty ships total. Each number represents the number of ships of the main twenty that are in that category CANON GAY CANON Straight Non- CANON GAY17 1 2
