JC - Sideways

Thanks, I wasn't sure whether I wanted to include that or not since the whole slash thing, but I just noticed the index includes m/m/f so I'm putting it in. Thanks again.

This makes me happy both as a popslash newbie and as a librarian-in-training who's dorkily squeeing about the greater bibliographic control provided by this community. Thanks!

Hah. Glad to know that this list doesn't grate on your librarian's sense of organization.

Meeps. Question regarding popslash fan fiction timeline...

I figured this was a guide so I could ask here... I was curious if you could possibly think of some events on er this sort of popslash timeline that I've missed and events that should be added...

1977 to 1983

  • Led Zeppelin fan fiction begins to circulate in fanzines. The early zines used the names Tris and Alex instead of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. (Sidewinder: http://www.livejournal.com/users/halegirl/370787.html?thread=544099#t544099 )

    1991 to 1999
  • Duran Duran slash and het fic circulated in fanzines. According to Sidewinder, Duran Duran zine people said that Duran Duran were aware of the fan fiction. Sidewinder also notes that the RPF people at the time did not seem to come from the same community as "traditional fan fiction fans" were coming from. (Sidewinder: http://www.livejournal.com/users/halegirl/370787.html?thread=544099#t544099 )

    1993
  • In March, the Nifty Archive came on-line. It is well known in fan fiction fandoms as a repository of boy band and celeb erotica.


    1994
  • Blink 182 released their first album.

    1997
  • “With Strings Attached” was written. This story was one of the most famous pieces of novel length fantasy pieces Beatles fan fiction written.
  • On July 14, the first Hanson fan fiction is written and posted to the Internet. It is titled "Hanson & Hugo" and was written by Ghostman 7 productions.



    1998
  • On October 15, FanFiction.Net was founded.

    1998 to 2002
  • From October 15, 1998 till September 12, 2002, FanFiction.Net had an active policy forbidding ActorSlash while they have Musicians and other real person fic categories. ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FFN-Slashers-Unite/ )
  • The Blink 182’s primary fan fiction archive was FanFiction.Net. (xcacophony: http://www.livejournal.com/community/fdnet_history/725.html?replyto=1749 )


    1999



  • 2000
  • beatlesfanfictionlist was founded on September 24, 2000.
  • In January, an influential RPS discussion takes place on Rareslash mailing list, the list run by Sofie Werkers. The discussion involved whether or not RPS should be allowed to be posted to the list.
  • In January, RS-X, one of the more important Real Person Fic mailing lists, was founded by Sofie Werkers.
  • In December, Puppies in a Box, an NSync fan fiction site, went live. This site was very important in the history of the NSync fan fiction community. The site is now defunct. ( http://www.obsessivetendencies.net/yeah/chick.html )

    Re: Meeps. Question regarding popslash fan fiction timeline...

    2001

  • Between June and November, FFN-Slashers-Unites discussed the ethical implications of Real Person Slash.



    2001 to 2002
  • The Blink 182 slash fan fiction community based at FanFiction.Net was producing early and influential works in the community. Among these works are “Advantages of Alcohol,” “Letters After Death,” “In my Room,” “Defying Gravity,” and “Deafening.” (xcacophony: http://www.livejournal.com/community/fdnet_history/725.html?replyto=1749 )

    2002
  • By 2002, the definition of Mary Sue began to change as Mary Sue became further and further removed from her roots. In communities like Harry Potter and Good Charlotte, on sites like SugarQuill and FanDomination.Net, the community took their understanding of Mary Sue, which was filtered through several layers of various fen, and came to a new understanding. This understanding began to define almost every original character in fiction as a Mary Sue as they all could be said to have traits of Mary Sue. In communities where there was a distinct absence of canonical female characters and people, in communities like Mest and Good Charlotte, Mary Sue began to be defined as any original female character in fan fiction.
  • On September 12, FanFiction.Net removes all Real Person Fic from the site.
  • The Good Charlotte fan fiction community reached a critical mass.
  • Wired news published an article about real person fan fiction on June 13, 2002. Among other people quoted are Henry Jenkins who says that people who first conceived of fan fiction would probably be troubled by RPS.



    2003
  • On April 12, idolslash, one of the most influential American Idol fan fiction communities, was founded on LiveJournal. (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=idolslash&mode=full , tisharrasofine on AIM)
  • On July 23, AFI_Slash livejournal community was created. It claims to be the first and only community. It should be noted that this community is small and FanDomination.Net has most stories and authors than this community. (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=afi_slash&mode=full)



    2004
  • On February 2, Blink_Slash, a Live Journal Blink 182 slash community, was founded. ( http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=blink_slash, xcacophony: http://www.livejournal.com/community/fdnet_history/725.html?replyto=1749 )
  • On July 24, matag, a Live Journal Blink 182 slash community, was founded. (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=matag&mode=full, xcacophony: http://www.livejournal.com/community/fdnet_history/725.html?replyto=1749 )
  • Between September and November, the Lil_Princess incident happened in Good Charlotte fan fiction community. This involved the deliberate purveying of badfic ad mocking of fen for supporting it as good writing. The person behind Lil_Princess intended to prove that being a bad author didn’t mean anything, that the community supported authors who wrote crap.

    I can't really help you with these, but maybe you could try pop_reference? I'm sure there's someone more knowledgeable than I am.
