As of the time I’m writing this, I am 27 years old. I have been a part of fandom, in some capacity, since I was 11 and became obsessed with Pokemon. In the wider scope of fandom as a whole I’m still quite young, but on Tumblr I am often at least a good five years older than most of my friends, which gives me at least a good five years of experience over them. Five years might not seem like a lot, but on the internet it is a very, very long time. And over the course of those five years and five before that and five even before that, I’ve gathered an idea of how different subsets of fandom tend to work.
And one subset of fandom I see talked about often but never really fully addressed in any real capacity is the Nomadic Fandom.
