2016 in Fic and Fandom
It's a few months into 2017, but we're talking in this episode about all of the controversies, fic and fandom goings on that happened in 2016. Contributors Birdy and Summer join Enthusiasm Girl to ask the important questions of the previous year. Will Harry Potter fans end up like Hobbit fans thinking less is more as J.K. Rowling expands the Potterverse? Why exactly did Stormpilot lose ground to Kylux and Reylo? Why is there not more Doctor Strange fic? And is fandom, as some have claimed, entitled? Or is there just a backlash against its progressive spirit? All that and more as we try to sum up the year in fandom as best as we can in two hours and probably don't know more than we know about it.
