June Bloom is slowly coming to an end, so with the final week, we want to focus on what really gets the fandom going: the fans! It's the fans who write fanfic, make fanart, create fanvids. There would be no meta, cosplay, picspams, or any kind of fanworks for fandom to enjoy! So this week, we want to celebrate the people who have made your fandom experience so amazing.
Tell us about the fans who introduced you to your fandoms with their primers, or gifsets on Tumblr. Share the authors and vidders who made fanworks that resonated with you. Do you have your favorite fanfic writers or vidders? Do you love reading meta essays from particular people? Make sure they have a page on Fanlore!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- What vidders are you subscribed to on YouTube?
- Who wrote that fic you always reread?
- What thematic Tumblr blog do you love the most?
- Do you remember who ran the first LJ community you joined or the first Yahoo! mailing list?
Which fans shaped your fandom experience? Tell us about them: don't let them be forgotten!
Finally, it's good to remember Fanlore is a wiki, so you don't need to write out an in-depth article: someone else will come along to polish things up and flesh things out. By simply creating a stub you will contribute in nurturing of fandom flower!

Let us know in the comments about the pages you've made, and spread the love!
