Other Fandoms Reanalysed

Work Text:

A wordcloud of the fandom list given below.

I realised a while back that there was a better way of processing the Other Fandoms question on the AO3 census.

Here is an updated version of the “What other fandoms do you regularly read/produce works for?” question which now groups together responses that are synonymous or subsets of one another. Clickthrough for high-res.

The biggest change is the emergence of RPF as a major player, which was formerly split into a lot of smaller categories. Other shifts include James Bond increasing significantly (as many people had listed ‘Skyfall’ instead) and some new “super-categories” like Star Trek (all mentions) and Avatar (both A:TLA and LOK). The full list of the top 151 fandoms for this question is below the cut.

Before you ask “Why is ___ missing?” please remember that this survey was conducted in August 2014, and that the 25 biggest fandoms at the time were asked about in an earlier question.
