Hi, and welcome! If you're here, it's probably because you know someone else that's here already, so you have some marginal street cred and can skip the gang initiation. If not, what's a little hazing between friends?
Our main purpose in forming this community was to try and have the popslash experience in a whole new fandom. See, the trouble with popslash is that you come in, and there are all these really amazing people who are nice and sweet and helpful, and they send you footage, or post links to download it, or make whole websites just for the purpose of sharing the love, and there's all this fantastic fic for you to read and pictures to look at and squee to share, and it's just the most awesome thing in the world, and you think that all RPS fandoms are like that, and then you realize they're not.
But wait! Sometimes you get into a new fandom (in this case, Fall Out Boy and wackily punctuated labelmates Panic! At The Disco and The Academy Is...) and drag people along with you, so instead of just sitting there being emo about it, you get up and organize. And by you I mean me and deliberatehips. We're writing it, a few of our friends are writing it, a few of their friends are writing it, we all love ourselves some canon, thus: community. To post fic, pictures, footage, recs, all the good things we're here for in an environment where we're all here for the same purpose. And that purpose is LOVE. No, I'm just kidding. It's porn.
So you wanna join? Awesome. Your best bet, if you don't already know someone in here, is to do the following: say hello, say who you know (if you know someone here- namedrop it like it's hot), link us to your popslash, link us to your FOB/P!ATD/TAI slash (or make grandiose promises that you're going to write some)(and anyone that has a less unwieldy name for this fandom, speak up!). Be, you know, a good writer, or if writing isn't your thing, be a good feedbacker and bring us shiny things (pictures! footage! gay!). This comm has a slightly different focus than yeahchemical, but spiritually we're on the same page, and we both like Mikey Way, so we have that in common.
Friends and neighbors down the street:
Fall Out Boy
viawentztop: Source for all things Pete Wentz, including journal entries, AIM away messages, and mockery. They keep track of Pete's six thousand journals so we don't have to.
__patrick_stump: Name has underscores in it. Yep.
falloutboyicons: Love in a hundred pixels.
falloutboylove: Like it sounds, only actually useful sometimes.
patrickxpeter: You know how sometimes you come into a fandom, and you find yourself into the most popular pairing, and then you check the main community for the pairing and it's filled with fic that's just not to your taste, for whatever reason (*cough*), and yet you still go back there once in awhile, just needing something, you know, just a little bit, and maybe once in a blue moon someone will post something really good there, and you tell yourself that that's why you keep coming back, when the truth is that really you just need a hit right now even if you'll hate yourself halfway through and totally regret in the morning?
andylovesjoe: Like patrickxpeter only with fewer members and less fic and more Andy and Joe and less Pete and Patrick.
stumphurleylove: Why don't more people write other pairings? Sara asked, doing nothing whatsoever to fix the problem.
dead_on_fic: Slash one, slash all! For any FOB slash fic, including crossovers.
fallout_rainbow: Like dead_on_fic's less popular younger sister.
petexmikey: Land of the omgcute.
Panic! At the Disco
slashatthedisco: Wins at comm name.
The Academy Is...
theacademyslash: Because theacademyisgay was too long.
Things which will also eventually be posted to this community: a list of popslashers that have written FOB/P!ATD/TAI, recs, footage (where to find it, praise in the name of YouTube, etc.), print canon (i.e. quotes from Pete's journals, interviews, links to online interviews, probably some slashy quotes because it's so easy as to be almost gauche), and possibly some sort of way to keep track of appearances, god help me if I start DVRing FOB stuff.
Things we would like to do at some point: organize some footage viewing, i.e. queue up together and watch while chatting, fic challenges so
We also have lofty dreams of this being a very active community, so if you wanna direct people here that would be cool, if you know any popslashers writing in this fandom now, link me to the fic, if you have some friends that are wavery on whether or not they're gonna be into the fandom, point them here, if you have any recs, please oh please oh please speak up. I'm thinking it would be a good plan to have things up in the memories, like the list of where to find footage, a list of where to find the really slashy footage (which, I mean: fish in a barrel), list of recs, and so on. And maybe tagging things would be nice, although really only because I want the slash tag to be "pretty obviously gay."
