The History of Fandom

Well, modern-day fandom anyway.

When I was first getting into fandom culture, reading fic and seeking out fan art, I had no idea that it had such a rich history. Turns out fandom has been here for a long time (like... it's ANCIENT) but fandom as we know it began in the 60s and grew. And grew and grew. And I am so, so excited to see where we end up next. But in the meantime, let's celebrate a little of our history as fans!
The password: fandom!

How many do you remember?

I'm all about Star Trek (of course), but there's some Doctor Who, Xena, RENT, and Supernatural too!

Would You Eat These Star Wars Ice Cream Flavors?
In a galaxy far, far away - or, you know, Brooklyn, a popular ice cream shop is banking in on the highly-anticipated 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' release by making a Force-approved release of their very own - two delectable flavors of frozen custard inspired by the film. Before you comment with "What the what, @danidee?! How'd they get past Disney?!", the limited edition flavors are a special collaboration between Ample Hill Creamery and Disney themselves. (Yes, sometimes when it's not being an evil miser of a corporation, Disney knows how to be a homie and treat their fans to something great.) And these flavor descriptions are so beautiful I might cry. First, there's the Dark Side: ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownie bites, Cocoa Krispies, and white chocolate pearls "to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through." (The company's words, not mine.) Yeah, I bet that PB&J is looking pretty boring right now, Vader. And then, of course, there's the Light Side - fit for members of the Rebel Alliance (or people who just really like vanilla). It's marshmallow ice cream with homemade Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies treat clusters "to represent the dark side still lurking within the light." I like how they feel like they need to explain why they put two different types of Krispy treats in there. Bro, it's okay. You already had us at 'marshmallow ice cream'. Who knew Jedis were such supreme foodies? The best part is that Ample Hills is making the ice cream ONLY available online, which means that you don't have to live near their New York location to buy it! (Let's momentarily look past the fact that it costs $36 for a 4-pack and you have to pay for express shipping, shall we?) So with that being said: Are you down to order some Star Wars ice cream? Or are you perfectly content with just sprinkling some Cocoa Krispies on your Thrifty Chocolate Malted Crunch and calling it a day? Let me know in the comments below, and for more things you didn't know you wanted to buy until you opened up Vingle today, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection!

Why Do Stereotypes Hurt So Much?
It's not just rude... it's bad for our communities. If you're not familiar with the "fake geek girl" accusation, that's probably a good thing. It doesn't happen all the time, but there are some people in the geek community (an over-generalization of gamers, comic book lovers, and sci-fi readers) that feel the need to act as gatekeepers. And while there's nothing wrong with defending the things you love from people who only wish harm on your community, the practices currently in place end up deterring new fans, which keeps the fandom from growing. Not only that, but it makes it a very hostile place to be, even for those who have been fans for a long time. Instead of coming together to get excited about what we all love, fan events have become gated communities more concerned with outing the 'fakes' than with the media that brought us together in the first place. And the 'fakes' being targeted are predominantly- though not exclusively- women. What gives? The above is, of course, satire. The truth is that geek culture has become extremely accessible in recent years. There are lots of new comics fans thanks to the hugely popular Marvel and DC franchises. Thanks to Cartoon Network's lineup, there are anime fans left and right. Steam is making it easier (and cheaper) for new fans to become dedicated gamers. Geek is no longer an insult, it's an identity that people are proud of. And why should we be ashamed of our passions? They're a big part of our lives. They're how we have fun. They're how we relate to the world. So why is there a culture built around punishing new fans? I've seen lots of reasons tossed around. But I'm not really sure what the answer is. I've been told that 'fake geek girls' are only interested in sex, that they're only calling themselves geeks because it's trendy, that they're invading male-only spaces to cause trouble and not because they actually care about the medium. Via Tara Tiger Brown, Reddit, Joe Peacock. Sure, there are probably lots of 'booth babes' at conventions who care more about doing their job than showing off how much they know about geek culture, if anything. Maybe there have been some trouble-makers at conventions. None that I've ever been to, but I wouldn't say it's not a possibility. But isn't that what convention codes of conduct are for? Protecting fans- all fans- from misbehavior? It seems unreasonable to assume that someone has bad intentions based on their gender presentation or their appearance. When it comes to bullying or toxic behavior, it sounds like being exclusionary based on the way someone looks is generally agreed upon as unfair and cruel. So why is this an accepted practice when a new fan is present? Or when a person is expressing their fannishness in a way that's different? The truth is, we all miss out as a result. We were all new once. I wasn't born with an encyclopedic knowledge of knowledge of Marvel comics or fandom history. That's all stuff that I learned. Because it was interesting, because it was fun, and because I wanted to hang out with the fans who invited me into their spaces and made me feel welcome. What is so threatening about new fans that makes us so possessive? Why wouldn't we take advantage of their new-found excitement, instead of shunning their enthusiasm? @RobertMarsh @CarmenMRey @AimeeH @DanRodriguez @ButterflyBlu @melifluosmelodi @DonovanMoore @InPlainSight @baileykayleen @LizArnone @VinMcCarthy @WayneWinquist @MattK95 @ChosenKnight @RaquelArredondo @BeannachtOraibh @chris98vamg @BryanVincent @BiblioLady @purplem00n23 @dustinparson I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this subject! I know it can be difficult to have these discussions and I'm honestly humbled by the responses I've gotten here.
A New Suga Fanfic coming soon..
would anyone be Interested in a reader/yoongi fanfic? It is going to based of an old country song that I adore... Strawberry Wine by Deanna Carter... The story is an AU fic but a coming of age story. You spend the summers at your grandparents farm with your best friend Taehyung. You aren't a stranger to the college boys that your grandpa hires in the summer to help out with the harvesting and the running of his farm. You grandpa has animals, and produce on his farm but you and Taehyung usually spend it in the Strawberry fields. Your grandpa also makes wine from the strawberries. What you didn't expect was two college boys helping with the strawberries and the wine making. The college kids your grandfather usually hires help with the animals and other functions on the farm. You spend your summer falling in love and not hoping for heartache come September? You naively fall hard but as you get older it becomes a fleeting thought across your mind... If interested in the story comment below. I'm looking forward to writing a story of summer love and first love... but also a story about growing up Suga's Genius' @VeronicaArtino @SugaKookieV @SweetDuella @jeonraeyoo Suga's starchildren @MelissaGarza @Starbell808 if you would like to be added to the official Suga cmty taglist comment below.

Does Nerd Culture Have a Problem?
Are nerd spaces hostile to LGBT+ and female fans? I don't want to give anecdotal evidence, because one person's experience isn't going to be the experience everyone has, but I will say that I personally have avoided a lot of 'nerd' spaces because it didn't seem like there was any institutional support for people who were on the receiving end of any kind of abusive behavior. And since so much of 'nerd' culture is based on this idea that we are outsiders, or that we're a family brought together by our niche interests, it does really disappoint me to hear that someone in the community has experienced harassment. So instead of anecdotes, here's some of what the above Youtuber is talking about: +Zoe Quinn was stalked, harassed, and threatened for months by the gamer community after breaking up with her boyfriend, who used his power in the community to create a mob to go after her. +Lauren Faits was sexually assaulted when she was underage at a convention. +StarTrek.com left racist and homophobic comments on a post about Sulu. +MariNaomi wrote about her experience on a panel where one of the other panelists repeatedly touched her, asked invasive questions, and crossed her boundaries. Guess who he apologized to? Her husband. +Maddy Meyers wrote about being dismissed by fellow fans at Anime Boston. +And finally, here's John Scalzi's scathing takedown of the harassment policy of the 2015 World Fantasy Convention, and why it actually fails to protect con-goers. This... doesn't feel isolated. It feels a lot more like the culture (and the conventions/institutions that help sustain it) has a serious problem. Do you feel like the suggestions Justin Denis made were helpful? Do you think there's more that we can do as a community to stop these things from happening?
tHot (+18) Smutshot
Who: Reader x Jay Park What: Smut Story: N/A He pushed me up against the wall, lifted my chin with a finger and stared into my eyes intensely. The moment was steamy and tense. I could see his eyes fall to my lips then he started to close the space. I burst out laughing, "You're so full of shit Park!" "You always ruin the mood when you open your mouth Y/N." "You weren't saying that two nights ago." I stuck out my tongue to remind him just what I gave him. He rolled his eyes. This casual thing between me and Jay was going on for as long as our friendship. I know a lot of the girls that were in love with him hated to see me with him and it just made me laugh. They hated me and I couldn't care less because at the end of the day I was still getting that good good from Park Jaebeom, despite him being a dumbass. He had me pinned up against the wall because I called him a dumbass actually. He tried to do that classic move from the dramas and make it seem all romantic. I can never take that idiot serious. I walked over to the computer and said, "Aye listen to this verse real quick, I think I want Devita on the song." I said. Jay sat down in the chair and I clicked the play button. The bass dropped and the beat had us both grooving. He stopped the song to critique my verse and then asked me if I was sure I wanted Devita on it. "Yeah, why you don't think she can do it?" I asked "I don't see where you'd fit her in. I mean your chorus would sound better with Minsik or even Loco." "Well in case you have forgotten both of them left me for the military so I can't use them." Jay chuckled, "It was mandatory and Minsik wanted to get it out of the way. You should be proud of them." "I am. I am. Still- Minsik could've waited, little bitch." "You sound like a bitter housewife. Besides why do they mean so much to you," Jay stood up and got closer to me,"when you have me?" I scoffed, "Because they're my baby boys Jay. You however," I pushed him down to the chair again, "you're my little heathen." My voice had a sultry tone to it now. I lowered to my knees in front of him and then undid the front of his pants. I didn't bother checking the door to see if it was locked nor did I care about pulling his pants down. As far as I was concerned, it would be hot if we got caught. I popped him out of his pants but he wasn't fully erect yet; I worked my tongue at the base of his shaft allowing the tip of my wet muscle to press into his hardening heat. I heard him his as I drew my tongue up the now harden sex. I moved slow as if savouring his flavor. Jay smelled like axe body spray, the Apollo one, I hated that one. I don't know why I just now noticed it. Still, the smell of manly flesh was way more provocative. I covered him with my mouth and I felt him jerk his hips a bit. He tried to maintain control while I bobbed my head up and down. My hand came to his rod while I sucked him off, I spread my saliva to make him slick and continued the hand job while I hollowed my cheeks and sucked him harder. I opened my eyes to look up at him, his lips were parted and I could see his chest rise and fall from the heat. He looked drowsy in the eyes but I could see from the corner of my eyes he was gripping onto the arms of the seat. I saw him throw his head back before I closed my eyes again to enjoy my treat. My heat was burning up, I was hot inside and out. Another hiss from his lips caused the coil in my stomach to tighten, I felt the sensual wave of sex come over me. It felt similar to feeling that first shot of soju kicking in. I took him to the back of my throat and held him there. "Shit!" He groaned out loud. I loved making him cuss like that. I felt his hand come to my head, he was petting me as if to say good girl. His hand then gripped onto a handful of my hair as he guided me to go faster. Secretly, I hoped someone would catch us. Secretly, I wanted someone to watch us. I liked eyes on me, it made everything hotter. "You're my little thot. Fuck, you're so good at this." I know, I thought. My tongue swirled around his tip, the taste of precum greeting my taste buds I was enjoying myself, humming on his sex with absolute pleasure and pride. My mind was going wild with the fantasy of putting on a show for the male members. Jay brought his other hand to the other side of my face. As if lost in the ecstasy, he stood up and started to fuck my face, making me take him deeper each time. He had lost himself in the depths of pleasure and suddenly the hot streams of his climax filled my mouth. Not wanting it to linger, I quickly swallowed it down. It wasn't done though. Jay reached for my hand and stood me up. He started to untie the string to my sweat pants and I grinned. He started to walk towards me and I backed up while reaching up to put my arms around his neck. I giggled, "Going all the way?" "After that? I don't think I can miss the opportunity, you got me started." "Oh so this is my fault?" I laughed. "I can always stop." Jay started to turn from me and I yanked him back, while pulling him into a kiss I said, "Don't you dare." Our lips locked together, tongues at war while he got a taste of himself. His hands slid past my panties and pushed them down. I felt his hand pet my soaking wet sex and he pulled away from the kiss to lick his fingers, "Pleasing me turns you on so much." "I love pleasing my boys." "You're such a thot," he laughed. "Says the King of a thots." "You've got a point." He let his finger circle at my entrance, his teasing sent tingles through my body like ripples. His thumb pushed into the bulge of nerves between my legs. My hands gripped onto his shoulders so I could keep my balance but mostly so I had something to squeeze. He brought his lips to the side of my neck, he peppered light kisses along sensitive flesh. My chest rose and fell as arousal flooded my body. It was as if a drug I took had finally kicked in. The sweet deliciousness of his foreplay had my eyes rolling back. He pressed his body closer to me, his skin felt so hot against me. Fever ignited as he continued to play with me. I pushed my sweats down looking for more room but honestly playing with our clothes on seemed far more naughty than being naked. I could savor just his fingers for as long as I wanted. Then they came, two digits slipped inside me so effortlessly it made him chuckle along my neck. His breath against my collarbone did something to me. It twisted my heart and yanked it around. I was completely in lust with him. I tilted my head back to give him more access to my neck, he continued to kiss and lick while he pushed my body up against the wall. He was so close to me you would've thought our skin had been stitched together. The heaviness of his body weight complimented the luxurious feeling of him torturing my clit. My soft mewls raised in pitch and my hips began to roll and buck up looking for his pelvis and meeting his thumb. He was hard again, foreplay could get him off but there was nothing more sexy to Jay than watching whoever he was sleeping with get turned on by him. He was the thot; he was so conceited even if he refused to admit it. I pushed his hand away from my sex unable to withstand it any longer. I wanted his hot swelling sex to make me cum. I turned around and poked my butt out for him. He freed himself while I spread my cheeks for him. I could feel his tip at my lips, playing in my jucie. I just knew he was licking his lips like a predator. Slowly he dipped inside of me inch by inch, reaching around to push his fingers into my mouth so I could clean them off. Something about this position was so revealing. I wasn't spread eagle for him, in fact, my legs were pushed together. It gave me this feeling as if my walls were tighter, more compact which made his invasion all the more thrilling. He was reaching deep into me, I could feel him in my belly. I sucked his fingers harder, he pumped into me faster. Ecstasy pulsed through me like soundwaves, even when he pulled his fingers from my lips and gripped onto my waist. He was moving like a mad man, he was deep in the throughs of heat. Everything was so hot, I felt like I was on fire, the room around us was melting. The steam surrounded our bodies and gave us a hug. Jay groaned behind me, his breathing was in tune with my own. We were in the perfect setting to make a beat. My skin was clamy from the heat, I could feel the rough material from his jeans on my butt as he slammed into me. His length devoured my core, my walls fought to capture him in my pool of lust. His fingers slid along my skin, up my body, tickling my stomach so that I tightened around him more. My toes curled in my shoes as his hand met my breast beneath my crop top. His fingers found my nipples, perked up hard little buttons that he rightly teased. He twisted and pinched them, pain furthered the pleasure. I was so turned on, so enthralled by the heat that I was pushing back into him. He was touching parts of me that would send me into a cataclysmic event. My hips circled on him, my body moved like I was dancing for him. The pads of his fingers seered into my flesh, so hot that I was being brought closer to the edge. His body pressed up against mine. His hand squeezed my breast, my nipple caught between two of his fingers. I wanted to tell him to give me more, to utterly destory me but I couldn't speak a word. Moans were all that left my lips even while I tried to cry out his name. The tension that had been building up was reaching its peak. Higher and higher we went, soaring in the hype of fucking in his studio. No thoughts passed my mind, all I could do was feel; I was completely his. I felt the sweet stickiness of his orgasam flush into me. His fingers gripped my body, his body shook as he continued to move in me so that he could get me there. Twice he had already reached his climax, I just needed one good time to render me useless for at least thirty minutes. His movements were jagged but still so delicious. The coil tightened, tighter and tighter. He couldn't keep moving, he dropped to his knees and ate it from the back, I was surprised. His tongue was magical though, it pressed into my clit. The strength of his muscle playing with my bundle of nerves had me crying. My hands curled into fists, my nails screamed along the wall as they scratched it. I rode his face until I felt myself come undone. My mouth opened wide, my eyes rolled back and a silent scream released into the room. The echoes of pleasure seemed so loud in my ear and delicious ripples ran through my body as I enjoyed the violent orgasam that had me fucking Jay's face mercilessly. I finally pushed myself off the wall and pulled my sweats up. Jay had already zipped himself back up. He stood up and kissed me on my lips softly. I pulled away and placed my fingers on his lips, "Are you falling love with me Jay?" I teased him. "Please," he rolled his eyes. I laughed, "I'm going to the bathroom, leave the door open would you, it's gotten kinda hot in here." "Whose fault is that?" I looked back at him; I winked, while sticking my tongue at him, then turned to the door to leave....

What Was Your First Fandom?
There's nothing like your first. Vingle is awesome because it feels like no matter how obscure my fandom is, there's always someone else here who's into it! So let's take a trip down nostalgia lane and find out how it all began... The Superwholock fandom Did you dive headfirst into the wonderful wild world of Supernatural, Doctor Who, or Sherlock? I was away from fandom for a while, but some amazing Sherlock fic brought me back in. And you all know how that went! Now it's all fanfiction all the time here! Anime fandom I know there are a lot of you out there! The first fic I ever read was anime (and trust me, you don't want to know about the fic that I *wrote*. It was a monstrosity). Lord of the Rings fandom If you speak Elvish, you have my respect. The Marvel/DC fandom Superhero movies seem like they're here to stay. Whether it was Marvel or DC, Daredevil or the Dark Knight, you're gonna have a lot of fun in the coming years! And of course I'll be right there with you. Star Wars fandom I'm so happy for you all. I know Sherlockians have been called the fandom that waited... but you all really waited, didn't you? The Fandom that Lives Harry Potter is definitely a global fandom, and we haven't seen the likes of it before or since. The first fandom Star Trek inspired fandom as we know it today. The fic, the cons, the culture... to use an inappropriate quote "I was alone and I owe you so much". WAS THERE A FANDOM I MISSED??? If so please don't think I love you any less! In fact I probably want to know all about it. Share your first fandom experience!!! Were you a livejournaler in the days of Cassie Clare? Did you get sucked into Tumblr during Mishagate? Or were you one of the old school fans subscribing to zines in the mail? Or hey, is Vingle the first place you've let yourself fan the freak out? That would be awesome too. Let's get excited about our first fandoms!!!
