Bandslash is a term that has been used differently in different contexts:

  1. slash fanfic that features bands or musicians.
  2. slash fanfic that features bands associated with Fall Out Boy, MCR, etc.
  3. fanfic that features bands or musicians.
  4. fanfic that features bands associated with Fall Out Boy, MCR, etc.

It is now most popularly used for bandom fic, but can also refer to fanfic for any band or musician.

Bandom was originally referred to as bandslash fandom, but in early 2007 the terms were merged by fen. (It's possible that this change is related to the terminology shift from RPS to RPF.)

Bandslash, as the name would suggest, is usually slash fic, but can also feature het and femslash pairings as well as gen.
