Negotiating contemporary romance: twilight fan fiction
2014 (English)In: Interactions: Studies in Communication & Culture, ISSN 1757-2681, Vol. 5, no 3, 351-364 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Produser interaction through fan fictions (fanfics) results in expansions of the narrow range of stories provided by the increasingly consolidated production companies, and is therefore an important contribution to meaning-making discussions about love, gender and sexualities. Fanfic authors rework the romance of Twilight in ways that question its unequal gender power relations, the abstinence and hetero-norms, and the romantic staple of one true love. Given their potential influence on commercial producers, fanfics are more than mere ‘interaction’ yet are not full ‘participation’ according to Carpentier’s AIP model.
