Sample text

The problem posed is the definition and usage of OOC. “OOC” is defined in Kielle’s Fanfiction Glossary (see Appendix C) under “out of character” as: For a fictional creature, acting in a manner not consistent with his/her/its established personality. This can be on purpose for a plot device or, more often, merely due to bad acting/writing. Often abbreviated to OOC or ooc. “OOC” when used to describe a fanfic is, generally speaking, not a positive term in the least. When the term is adopted into and adapted for other fandom activities, its connotations may shift and be extended.

It just has to be generally related, like if someone sees a funny piece of art, or a Prisoner of Azkaban trailer, but also if two people have funny OOC chats they’ll post that. It is interesting to me that Yuri mentions nraged as a reference point: Nraged is the OOC community used by the organizers as well as the fans of one of the oldest and very popular Harry Potter RPGs, Nocturne Alley. Nocturne Alley is a very admired LiveJournal community RPG that has managed to gather a dedicated audience and helped revolutionize the ways in which RPGs are played and chronicled on LiveJournal.

B. Activities 1. Intro 47 There are many ways for fans in general and slash fans in particular to live out their fandoms; what for one is fandom is not necessarily so for the other. Some fans write fanfiction, some correct and edit others’ fanfiction; some fans roleplay on a one-on-one chat basis, in a multiple-character chat or on an online journal that allows for comments to each entry (such as LiveJournal or GreatestJournal). Some fans will write essays on slash or specific media (this book or that TV-show) that they are fans of; others will indulge predominately in highly analytical discussions of either text, sub-text or fandom in general (so called “meta”).
