Warning: [personal profile] mina_de_malfois is an affectionate satirical examination of online fandom. Some readers may not share this sense of humour; reader discretion is advised. [personal profile] mina_de_malfois is for entertainment purposes only; [personal profile] mina_de_malfois neither attempts nor achieves any notable degree of accuracy, and should therefore not be used as a source of information, let alone a reason to reinforce, say, glaring homophobia and gender biases.4.1

Mina de Malfois and the End of Summer (part one) )

1. I bet Why Jensen Ackles Matters: A Study in Fiction and Meta was on the reading list.

2. Twilight fandom at work: fanfiction for sale on Amazon, as reported by Dunc on Club Jade.

3. And again with the Twilight fandom: fanfiction for sale on eBay, as reported by Caito. N.B. that as far as I can tell, most Twilight fans don't attempt to trample over copyright. Right?

4. Unlike the average market observer or academic she was able to view a frank discussion where those involved were unaware that they were being observed by a researcher.
"I thought at first it might be unethical," she said. But that problem was answered for her by one fan who wrote: "This is a public forum and everyone in the world can read it."

4. 1. It'd be soothing to think outsiders had gotten a clue, but then there's the massive research fail of RULE 34: WHAT NETPORN TEACHES US ABOUT THE BRAIN, explained in many eloquent posts by many fans.

5. Don't worry: this isn't a link to That Wiki, it's a link to a fan's Bebo page--but if you scroll down, you find one of those all-too-familiar comments. Can anyone help edit the Coronation Street article on Fan History? It is an introduction to the history of the fandom, containing a timeline of events, information on fandom fights and more. Needs some bulking up to make it more accurate.
Thanks for any help you can provide in improving the article!

Also strangely hilarious is this foray into the Coronation Street blog; note the first comment is from someone familiar with That Wiki...

6. Fanfiction, not necessarily sub-par, can be found here.

7. C'mon: Liarla? Seriously?

[Hi, all. I know it's been ages. To be truthful, I'm dragging my heels as the end of season three approaches, because after that I'll be taking a long, long--indefinitely long--break. In the beginning of July I'll be going offline altogether: hospital stay (brief, and no, nothing to worry about), followed by, unfortunately, six or eight weeks with no spare energy to log on.

But on a happier note: it's Purim! Send candy and lipgloss. If you can donate to your local food bank, that would be lovely.]

This isn't a real update, in other words.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jadegoldocean for writing this warning:
Warning: while this contains no actual sex, there are indications that something sexual will happen immediately after it.

Further authorial fanon. )

You know you do. And now [livejournal.com profile] expectare has written a Nancy Drew/Minaverse crossover: The Mystery at the Adjectival Library. It's wonderful (as is the 'outline of every Nancy Drew novel ever' of [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda's that it's linked to); do go read it.
