Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Camila Lorena Longo's insight:

There’s more than one reason why Stargate succeeded in keeping and growing a loyal following. Actor David Hewlett who portrayed Dr. Rodney McKay in the TV series believes one of them is timing. The Internet was growing around the time ofSG-1, giving fans a way to share their passion and spread the word.

Sleepy Hollow’s Orlando Jones on the Mysterious Captain Irving and Engaging With Fans

Sleepy Hollow’s Orlando Jones on the Mysterious Captain Irving and Engaging With Fans | Fans and fandoms | Scoop.it
I get to be in my living room with you, trolling my own show.
Camila Lorena Longo's insight:

 "The Internet to me is about rebel culture, and I’ve always loved it. When I think of rebel culture, I think of rock-and-roll, or hip-hop; and for a long time now, it’s been the Internet. Everything belongs to everyone now, and everyone gets to have a say. It doesn’t mean the fans are writing the show, but they definitely are watching it and they get to have a say."

Camila Lorena Longo's insight:

"For decades, slash stayed behind closed doors, at conventions, in Internet discussion groups or in secret zines. That's in part because it was taboo, and in part because writers feared legal retribution."

This 'Sleepy Hollow' star really wants to read your fanfic

This 'Sleepy Hollow' star really wants to read your fanfic | Fans and fandoms | Scoop.it
One of the main unspoken rules in fandom is don’t break the fourth wall.
Camila Lorena Longo's insight:

One of the main unspoken rules in fandom is don’t break the fourth wall. Don’t mail your sexually explicit Harry Potter fan art to the actors. Don’t try to engage Joss Whedon in a conversation aboutBuffy fanfic. Break this rule, and you’re immediately exposing yourself to the risk of a catastrophic fandom flamewar.

But if someone on the other side of the fourth wall asks for it? Then all bets are off. Kind of like when this weekend, Sleepy Hollow star Orlando Jones asked fans to tweet him links to fanfic.
