Self-Documentaries

Welcome to the Christina Spills All Her Shit section of this project.

In academic-y terms, I’m documenting here my own fandom experiences via autoethnographic accounts: what fandoms I was a part of, how and when I interacted and participated, what I gained through these experiences, etc. All that fun stuff packed into five (5) darling little episodes.

Here you go:

Don't be fooled. I'm in a lot more fandoms than just those depicted here. Considering that I have a limited timeframe, that I am a single human, and that I have systematically jumped around to about 15+ fandoms over the years, I will not be able to cover every aspect of my experiences right here right now.

 

The ones I will be going into more thoroughly for the time being are Nancy Drew, YouTube, Anime, and K-Pop—all staples of my growth as a fan, a person, and a scholar. These are just... some big ones. I'd like to, in the future, get to more. Talk about the influence and impact of more. And I will. Someday.

But in the meantime, allow me to show you what you’ll be missing. Here's a list of all the fandoms (that I can remember) I've been in by some varying degree, stolen from a rough section of my early notes for this project. Fun fact: Click to nyoom to more info!
