Angst is often used in fandom to characterize things which are intended to provoke the feeling of unrest and uncertainty in readers. It generally signifies that the story will be primarily dramatic in nature, rather than comedic or light-hearted. The poorly executed angstfic may be overly melodramatic, and feature a character who spends a great deal of time wallowing in self-pity while reflecting on the difficulties they experience. When this happens in canon, it is sometimes referred to as manpain.

There also exist subgenres such as flangst (fluffy angst) and wangst (whiny angst).

Also see feels.
