Fandom at the Crossroads ¼ An intimate behind the scenes examination of fan psychology passion motivation and shame The authors also speak directly to the creative side in order to understand what fuels the passionate reciprocal relationship Supernatural has with its fans As they go behind the scenes and onto the sets to talk with Supernatural's showrunners writers and actors the authors struggle to negotiate a hybrid identity as 'aca fans' Fangirls one moment 'legitimate' researchers the next the boundar. I’m always fascinated about what’s going on in te mind of people and to get the chance to combine that with my other love Supernatural I just knew I had to read this bookI loved reading it to get an insight into the mind of the fans but also read about what the actors and the creative people behind the series think about fans People have a strong opinion about you when you tell them you’re a fan of something Reading this book gives you insight in everything about fandom it’s a really good thing that the authors are fans themselves That makes the book so great if you ask me they know what it feels like to be on the other side of the fenceThe side where people think you’re just crazy because you like a show so much that you would travel around the world to meet the people on it that you would spend a lot of time online getting in contact with other fans or writing your own storiesIf you would really like to know what fandom is about this is a must read And if you’re a Supernatural fan it’s so amazing to read the responses of the actors FREE READ ☆ RANDARENEWABLES.CO.UK ´ Lynn S.

I feel this book reuires an in depth knowledge of Supernatural; people who are not fans of the show will often be excluded by the examples that assume a deep level of knowledgeMuch of the book relates to fanfiction particularly Wincest and slash fiction I'm not a reader or writer of fanfiction but it was interesting to read about I don't really understand the shame felt by some fanfic creators and consumers and this book helped me to better get it At the Supernatural convention I attended there was a sign up in the bathroom telling attendees how fans should behave including that no one should ever mention fanfic or Wincest to the actors I found this sort of policing of behaviour to be very weird it was supposed to be an environment where people can just be themselves among other fans This was in Chicago in 2009 The night before the convention The Real Ghostbusters debuted on TV the episode where Sam and Dean attended their first convention for the Supernatural books It was very meta timely and bizarreI enjoyed the perspectives of the show's actors and creative staff regarding Supernatural fandom usually these answers are just I am grateful for the fans but this book was able to extract information and candid opinionsIf you love Supernatural you will likely get something out of this book
