I want to point at this [livejournal.com profile] yuletide kefluffle and sad face that it didn't happen two weeks ago. Because [livejournal.com profile] sleepfighter and I kept using the concept of "performative fandom" when we were talking about "The Limits of Online Fandom" at Yaoicon, and this is kind of a perfect example of how what one group of people can do in fandom is similar, but subtly different from another group-- how concepts of fandom change based on where you are, and what you're doing.

I really want to make a post about the whole idea of performative fandom (and the fact that [profile] birchsalt's list made me BZUH over her inclusion of Percy Jackson until I realized there were 25-30 Percy Jackson fics posted on FF.N yesterday alone-- if that doesn't make my performative bias obvious, I don't know what does), but I need to get dressed and go to work.

Discuss.
