Patrick Roy Womens Jersey

I visited a midnight showing of the Wizard of Oz with friends during my misspent teenage years. Callow youth that we were Matt Nieto Womens Jersey , I expect we might have been under the influence of some controlled substance. That’s all a bit vague. What is crystal clear, though, is the memory of sitting in the theater, watching this movie I’d seen so many times previously — watching as it unfolded, yet again.

However Nail Yakupov Womens Jersey , this time, as the munchkins and witches and so forth all went about their well rehearsed business in the foreground, somehow my attention was riveted on the background. These cheesy painted studio backgrounds of distant mountains had me transfixed. I couldn’t help wondering, yes, yes J.T. Compher Womens Jersey , I know all about the Yellow Brick Road and the Emerald City and all that. But what the heck is on the other side of those mountains?

This we may say is the inspiration for that experience known as fanfiction. It is a DIY art through which fans tell their own story within the larger framework of the world created by an established work of art and entertainment. This is nothing new; it’s been going on for ages. In the sixties though it did become something of a subcultural phenomenon. Both The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Star Trek became the sources for all kinds of creative fanfiction efforts. They reimagined the stories in ways that were beyond the scope, inclination or legal ability of the original show: Klingons could conquer the universe or Kirk and Spock could be gay lovers. This was indeed boldly going where no staff writer had gone before.

Originally the fiction was produced in fanzines, which were mimeographed and stapled collections mailed out to subscribers within a narrow clique of aficionados and conference attendees. The rise of the Internet and particularly the World Wide Web in the early 90s changed all that and has allowed for a great blossoming of fanfiction of all kinds. In recent years, the proliferation of a vast inventory of video material available to be manipulated, edited and reinterpreted has taken fanfiction away from the written word into the YouTube editing room of any fan’s bedroom. What remains consistent through it all though is the desire to see what lay beyond those distant mountains – to speak metaphorically.

In any original show Carl Soderberg Womens Jersey , like The Walking Dead, there are always doors not entered, streets not followed, choices not made and thoughts not expressed. The original story follows only one narrative thread; in the process it inevitably opens the possibility of countless others. The writers of fanfiction are the explorers of these tantalizing possibilities which the original story tellers have left dangling. And this is a pretty thriving undertaking in the case of The Walking Dead. The single site Fanfiction.net alone has over 2000 fanfictions stories inspired by The Walking Dead. And that is very much just scraping the surface of what is available.

There are recurring themes in the Walking Dead fanfiction. One of the most popular is to delve more deeply into the background or makeup of one or more of the characters — to understand better where they come from and where they’re coming from (if you follow the distinction). Andrea and Daryl have been popular topics for this kind of writing. Others are more interested in getting beyond those mountains off in the distance. They look to tell a story of people that Rick Grimes and crew may never meet, but who are dealing with the same challenges of this walker infested world. In some cases it seems likely that the creators in fact are transparently putting themselves into this world of the Walking Dead. Pondering how they would rise to its challenges. How would they respond?

The Walking Dead fanfiction is a great resource for exploring the multilayered possibilities of the show’s world. It is a testament to the creativity of the fan base and just a whole lot of fun. But Blake Comeau Womens Jersey , in closing, there is the question of why there is such fan fascination with the context of the show.

Is it possible that this fascination in fact reveals something in the show that captures the zeitgeist of our time? If you want to know more about that, you need to check out our further thoughts on the topic, at Pretty Much Dead Already.
