--> ''Good fandoms never die, they just go god tier.''

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

Fandomstuck traces its roots back to the friendship between the Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia and Webcomic/{{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 [[PlatonicLifePartners moirail]].

Though it's difficult to pinpoint the introduction of AnthropomorphicPersonification 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 [[CrossOver cross over]] the source material of Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} with ''everything'', blew the initial concept out of the water. More and more fandom personifications began to crop up, including Series/DoctorWho, Series/{{Supernatural}}, Series/{{Sherlock}}, Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendShipIsMagic, 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 '[[InteractiveComic Fanadventures]]', a large [[{{Roleplay/Fandomstuck}} rp community]] based around it on Website/{{tumblr}}, and an [[{{Videogame/FandomstuckRPG}} RPG]].

By its very nature, incredibly [[MetaFiction meta]].

There are a great many resource blogs and archives for Fandomstuck, the 'main' one, and a directory of links to others, being [[http://fandomstuck-hq.tumblr.com here]], and the wiki can be found [[http://fandomstuck.wikia.com/wiki/Fandomstuck_Wiki here.]] Also has a [[{{Ymmv/Fandomstuck}} YMMV]] and [[{{Characters/Fandomstuck}} characters]] page currently under construction.

----
!! Tropes that apply to Fandomstuck as a whole

* ActionGirl: A fair few of the female fandoms could count.
* {{Adorkable}}: Many, many characters, and several of the writers.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Most fandoms appear human, though several have odd physiological quirks and a few are outright alien. Whether or not even the most human-looking ones really 'count' as human depends on your perspective.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification
* AffectionateParody: Of fandom.
* ArtShift: DependingOnTheWriter.
* AmbiguousGender: A couple of the fandoms, sometimes as a result of art style or just not bothering to specify a gender, sometimes because they actually are non-binary.
* AnimalEaredHeadband: Some fandoms, such as Literature/WarriorCats or Manga/TokyoMewMew, as a natural result of personifying series involving [[FunnyAnimal furries]] or PettingZooPeople.
* BigDamnHeroes: Most of the superhero fandoms ''try'', to varying degrees of success.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Canon, especially where it concerns the actual mechanics of the 'verse, such as what exactly the fandoms ''are'' or how they are 'born', is very inexact and most of the writers and rpers have their own headcanons, which may be pretty different from each other.
* CastOfPersonifications: Takes it to a new level: it's a largely tumblr-driven SharedUniverse that revolves around the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personifications]] of various fandoms that have sprung up around popular tv shows, books, animes, and webcomics.
* CharacterBlog: Lots of them.
* DependingOnTheWriter: A natural result of the lack of official canon. It's fairly common to find multiple takes on the same fandom, especially the more prominent ones. It's also variable as to whether or not the fandoms have any special abilities relating to their canon, or are strong, near-immortal humans, or are just Muggles.
* {{Fandom}}: [[CaptainObvious Well, yes.]]
* FiveManBand: The 'big five' fandoms often act as this:
** TheHero: {{Series/Supernatural}}
** TheLancer: Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}, despite being the main character, due to his outsider status.
** TheSmartGuy: {{Series/Sherlock}}
** TheBigGuy: Series/DoctorWho
** TheChick: Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia, being TheHeart and Homestuck's [[MoralityPet moirail]].
* FourthWallMailSlot
* FunTShirt: Hetalia wears a lot of them.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Both ''Hetalia'' and ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', [[NationsAsPeople appropriately enough]]. ''Hetalia'' usually lapses into Italian and ''[=SatW=]'' to Danish.
* MagicalRealism: Hints of it here and there; the whole humanoid personifications of fictional stories thing just seems to sort of happen, and there are ghosts and what at least appear to be various supernatural entities wandering around like it's no big deal.
* InTheStyleOf: A lot of the art is based on ''Webcomic/MsPaintAdventures''.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Frequently. Arguably, built into the concept.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: There are a "lot" of participating fandoms.
* {{Metafiction}}: Comes with the territory.
* MoeAnthropomorphism: One minor character is even the literal AnthropomorphicPersonification of {{Moe}}!
* MoeCouplet: Homestuck and Hetalia
* MultipleDemographicAppeal: Fandom age range covers everything from 13 to 30, and of varying genders. The main unifying feature is being geeks who want to squeal over fandom.
* NightmareFetishist: A lot of the more horror-leaning fandoms are portrayed this way.
* SharedUniverse
* ShoutOut: Basically a cast made up of walking shoutouts, as well as the (common but not ubiquitous) Homestuck-style SecondPersonNarration.
** StockShoutouts: To Homestuck, most obviously in the SecondPersonNarration style introduction pages, as well as the popularity of sprite- and panel-edits.
