Calling all fandom! To celebrate the SPN Fandom Day of Love, we are hosting a FANDOM LOVE MEME!


Think about what makes your Supernatural heart tick, and put those reasons out in the open. Let loose, express your love and your glee and your secret SPN-related delights. This means both canon and fandom.

What are your favorite micro-moments in SPN? Your favorite mytharcs? Characters? Quotes? BTS pics/clips? Your favorite fanworks challenge? The best thing that's happened to you via fandom? The coolest thing someone's ever made for you--for an auction, for a meme, a challenge, just because… Your favorite fandom hangout? Maybe you've got insta-notifs set up for a comm, or regularly Tumble through a certain tag for hours. Do you have a favorite trope you've discovered through SPN? A favorite fanwork? Do you love it when you're randomly threading with someone in the comments, and then you realize you're actually best friends why aren't you Friended yet? Is RPF wombat porn just that fucking sexy? No matter how big or how small, if something stokes your positivity, let it shine!

Spread the love, peace out, and pluck those heartstrings! (Click on the link to head to the party. :P) ♥

For me...

I love the way fans share STUFF so we can all happy and come together as a community to celebrate a show we love. Even if we can't agree about certain story lines or ships or characters we can appreciate the work others do and come together to celebrate that.

I love that fans help fans when they are in need. I love that a site like SuperWiki exists and when it needed funds recently we raised DOUBLE the amount that was being asked in such a short time. I love that people will connect on the specific things they love in the show (be it Sam, Dean, Cas, bros, Team Free Will, porn, tentacles...) and share that love in that corner, while embracing other stuff as well.

I love the god damn PASSION we communicate with when discussing the show. I love how these characters are so REAL that we defend them as they would be personally hurt if they heard you SAYING THAT about them.

I love that people can write fix it fics when canon isn't doing what you want and can DRAW and create the most amazing works to make you fantasise, imagine, drool, die, admire and just revel in everything you love about the show.

I love that fandoms are created within the fandom (yes I'm talking about rlbivob !).

I love that my flist are the most AMAZING group of people who are talented and warm and take the time to engage with me.

I love how fandom makes me feel part of something that feels important - something that's passionate and relevant. I love how it heals me when I'm feeling down, keeps me company when I'm feeling lonely and makes me laugh when I need picking up.

I love that it's a family and that our Show represents all the things that fandom is about is about (for me).

I love all of this and more - and this meme is a great opportunity for a massive group HUG!
12th-Jul-2014 02:31 pm (UTC)
SO much more! I'm nodding at everything that has been mentioned in the meme! :DD

Ok this makes me happy. LJ hasn't been so active in so long. I'm going to go eat my breakfast and come back to this myself. :)

You may know that I've signed up for the Rome con this year. I had to wake up at 6am my time to submit a photo op order request at 3pm Rome time. I think I messed up and may have sent my email a fraction too early which means I may not have gotten my request. Oh well. It's still fun.

I love all the things you mentioned here. :)

Active LJ!! \o/

Oh hun, I hope you get your request! (I live for the day I can attend an overseas con...)

All the fandom love! <3

That's so much for the signal boost, and for your beautiful fandom love thoughts. <33333333333

It's been under 5 hours, and this love meme has nearly exceeded the one I put on in 2010. OH FANDOM, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU.

Pleasure sweetie!

And I predict this will be the best love meme EVA! Who the hell said fandom was dead on LJ! :DD
