Episode 5: Fanfictionary
Elizabeth introduces her mom to the surprisingly vast and very teen-girl-driven world of fan fiction. It’s not all shipping (but it is a lot of shipping —listen if you don’t know what that is. Hint: No boats involved).
Some links to things we talked about:
- Definition of fan fiction
- Hamilton shipping, like Lams
- Sherlock shipping
- Sarah Marshall’s piece in The Baffler: The Afterlife of Newsies
- Original Character Do Not Steal meme
- Urban Dictionary definition of Mary Sue
- Places to find fan fiction:
- Business Insider on Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight
