Variations, Subversions, and Endless Love: Fan Fiction and the Twilight Saga

2011 (Engelska)Ingår i: Bringing Light to Twilight: Perspectives on the Pop Culture Phenomenon / [ed] Giselle Liza Anatol, New York: Palgrave MacMillan , 2011, s. 69-81Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
Abstract [en]

The popularity of Twilight has resulted in an unprecedented number of fan fictions (or fanfics); Internet-published stories in which fans engage in an intertextual dialogue with the source text. This huge fandom cannot be ignored in considerations of the source text and illustrates that readers are both active and critical readers.

The chapter contains close reading analyses of a limited number of fanfics with focus on how narrative strategies and forms illustrate negotiations both with genre- and gender conventions of the source text. Gen-fanfic features maintained relationships but they are developed in ways which suggest negotiations of Twilight’s focus on sexual abstinence. Slash pairs same-sex couples from the source text and illustrates a resistance to heteronormative structures. In crossovers, authors combine characters and events from different fandoms (here Twilight and Buffy) and illuminate how various brands of vampirism conflict. AUs (Alternative Universes) explore what-if scenarios, delineating how fans critically examine the source text and offer other possibilities for character- and plot developments.

The aim of the chapter is not to draw generalizing conclusions about fanfic, but rather to argue that the selected texts illustrate an active readership, and tendencies of resistance to and/or compliance with structures in Twilight, particularly tied to characterization and the themes of (blood)lust and sexual abstinence.
