What is a fandom? o.O
A fandom is basically a fan-kingdom, it is composed of fangirls and fanboys who ship characters together and obsess over them on sites like tumblr and fanfiction.net
fangirl/fanboy - people who are fans of a show, book, series, game, manga, celebrities, musicians,etc.
shipping - basically when you ship two characters together, it means you want them to be in a relationship.
OTP - translated into "one true pairing" it means you're in love with one specific shipping and would do absolutely anything for it to happen.
Here are some examples of major fandoms!
One of the largest and most basic fandoms. Harry Potter is widely popular not only for their amazing actors and movies, the phenomenal books, but the creativity it holds :) Would you ship Harry x Ginny? Ron x Hermione? Snape x Lily? Draco x Hermione?
PEWDS & MARZIA
Also known as YouTubers "Pewdiepie" and "Cutiepie" these two are an adorable couple. Their story of getting together should fill each fan with hope that you CAN be with your favorite youtuber.
A popular anime, K-ON has an amazing (and extremely....disturbing at some point) fandom :) How can you not obsess over these kawaii girls 0,0
Percy Jackson & Olympians / Heroes of Olympus
Rick Riordan has created a book series that has won the hearts of millions of readers. The storyline is fresh, and the characters unique. Would you ship Percy x Annabeth? Leo x Hazel? Frank x Hazel? Jason x Piper? Nico x Percy?
