This topic has been on my mind a lot this week, and since this is always been such a popular subject here at The Winchester Family Business, we should talk!
Fandom. We're constantly noticing how avid the "Supernatural" fans are. Ardeospina and I recently were part of a roundtable with other fansites on Supernatural radio about what it's like to be involved in this very active fandom. There's been a lot of fan activity recently over voting for The People's Choice Awards and finally seeing resolution in our fight to earn our show some recognition. There was another trending flurry on Twitter yesterday after it was announced that Jensen and Danneel Ackles are expecting their first child. And these are just the recent things!
The "Supernatural" fandom is quite a unique one for sure, and one of the most active out there. Our dear friends at Fangasm, Lynn and Kathy, have a full fledged professional fandom studies practice going now, with "Supernatural" and it's fans at the forefront of their studies. No doubt we've become a curiosity and a phenomenon to many out there. Some think we're just plain nuts, others wonder why we're so enthusiastic.
So, in this Let's Discuss topic, why not discuss what this fandom means to you. What is your level of involvement? Are you just dipping your toes in the waters, or are you a full fledged, card carrying, active on every forum or social media site fanatic? Or in between? How has fandom changed your life? How does this "Supernatural" fandom compare to others? (if you've been involved in others). What makes "Supernatural" so different? Or just talk about anything in the fandom in general, your likes, your dislikes, etc.
This is an open forum, so free form discussion is encouraged. However, please try to stay within the parameters of our rules. They can be found here:
