Good fandoms never die, they just go god tier.

Fandomstuck (also called Fandombound) is a a rather chaotic Shared Universe hosted (mostly) on tumblr, which is based around personifications of various shows, books, and other fandoms.

Fandomstuck traces its roots back to the friendship between the Axis Powers Hetalia and Homestuck fandoms on tumblr — fans of Axis Powers Hetalia interjected during the various pauses/ gigapauses in the Homestuck publication schedule to offer words of comfort and conciliation to distraught Homestuck fans. (A significant number of Homestuck fans were also fans of Axis Powers Hetalia, resulting in a large overlap in the two's fanbase.) This friendship and familiarity led to the common sentiment that the Hetalia fandom acted as the Homestuck fandom's moirail.

Though it's difficult to pinpoint the introduction of Anthropomorphic Personification into the equation, it was likely the propensity of Hetalia fans for generating such personifications that birthed the first iterations of the characters. Homestuck fans, who were notable for their desire to cross over the source material of Homestuck with everything, blew the initial concept out of the water. More and more fandom personifications began to crop up, including Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, My Little Pony Friend Ship Is Magic, etc... even fandom personifications of extant fanworks. What began with one-off character designs and art pieces eventually grew to encompass askblogs, short comics, voice-acting, Homestuck-style 'Fanadventures', a large rp community based around it on tumblr, and an RPG.

By its very nature, incredibly meta.

There are a great many resource blogs and archives for Fandomstuck, the 'main' one, and a directory of links to others, being here, and the wiki can be found here. Also has a YMMV and characters page currently under construction.
