Angie and Peter grew up together on the moon mining base that their father ran. After his death, a crisis on the base drives them apart just when the survivors need their leadership the most.
What is the nature of the presumed social contract fans share? What is the affect of fandom personality, size and pan-fandom influence on that presumed social contract in regards to wank/splits/flounces? In this essay I take a lens to these issues by reflecting on the behavior of fans in several different online, fanfic-centric fandoms (LoM, HF, SPN, SGA, dS) in the face of adversity and stress, and how their history, size, and pan-fandom influence affects those community reactions and whether the presumed social contract plays any roll in longevity or robustness.

A moderately in-depth analysis of the psychological effects of events which would be expected to drastically alter a person or characters relationship to their body, including factors relating to acceptance and likely effects of varying levels of body change acceptance. Written from a Cognitive Behavioral Theory viewpoint, but I’ve tried to make it as generally accessible as possible. I’ve used the MCU Avengers Phase 1 as my primary point of reference with occasional references to other fandoms and no Phase 2 spoilers.
I plan to update this when/if my theory develops further, or to respond to questions from anyone who has them.
EDIT: There's a YouTube video now! It covers much of the same material, but not all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ftJeQ8jRKM&t=1132s
