Fandom First Friday banner by Rachel G on the theme of Fluff with the silhouettes of two people embracing and touching foreheads


Ahhhh, fluff: Comfort food for the fannish soul.

Fluffy gifs, fan art, ficlets, podcasts: they’re an emotionally uplifting treat - especially at the end of a long day or week, when you’d like for one darn thing to be nice and simple and happy for a blessed minute.

Do you consume fluff? Create it? Reblog, share and kudos it? If so, tell us about your favorite works of fluff - your works, those of your favorite fluff specialists, or maybe a fandom-specific piece of fluff that really made your day recently.

Every month the OTW celebrates Fandom First Friday and invites you share the love!

It's always a good time for fluff!

Ellorgast, OTW Communications Staffer
Several people are silhouetted against a sky fading after sunset, posing as though dancing.  Text in front of them reads "OTW Fannews: Who"s Fandoming Now?"

Fewer people need fandom or fanworks explained to them these days, and neither is profiting from it new. http://bit.ly/1QO5tGW

This weekend, while researching a new show that I’ve fallen for (Sense8 – don’t get me started...) I was inspired to check back on a couple of web sites I used to visit all the time. They were for a show long over, whose fans have almost entirely moved on.
