So, continuing with the vocabulary of fandom, we explore some words that start with B. In this list we do have fascinating words. So, prepare yourself for the ride!
Badfic (or Trollfic): it’s a piece of fan fiction written as poorly as humanly possible in a deliberate way. These are often funny stories that stress cliches in books or shows or emphasizing horrible grammar. It can be hilarious, or incredibly nauseating. Please note that “badfic” is also used to refer to awful fan fiction.
Backstory: it’s a piece of fan fiction based on or containing scenes of, the past story of a character. These stories tend to be set before the official story begins. It can also be an original story by the author as well.
BAMF: (bad as a mother fucker). It refers to a character who is incredibly awesome. These characters are witty, clever, and super hard to defeat. These characters can have any gender, and be heroes.
Bande dessinée: comics from the Franco-Belgian tradition.
Bandom: it’s a fandom that’s all about a musical group. Bandom communities can be large, or tiny, noisy or not.
