From what I'm gathering on various friending communities, 'fandom' is a very big thing in these here parts.

It's not a term I'd heard before and the internet tells me that it is
The community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc. Fanfiction writers, artists, poets, and cosplayers are all members of that fandom. Fandoms often consist of message boards, livejournal communities, and people.

Which sounds great. Sign me up. I'd love to get to know people who love the same things I love. That's one of the reasons I came online the other month. Because so few people in my real life enjoy the same things that I do.

But what does it mean to be IN a fandom? There are musicians and books and tv shows and movies that I adore and can happily talk about and lose myself in for hours. I'm not sure I understand if there's a difference between being a fan of, say Supernatural or The Vampire Chronicles and being in the fandom.
