BioShock is a series of first-person shooter video games set in dystopian societies. The first two games, BioShock (game) (2007) and BioShock 2 (2010), take place in the underwater city of Rapture, where society is based on the Objectivist principles of Ayn Rand. The third game, BioShock Infinite (2013), is set in a floating city in the clouds, governed by the principles of American exceptionalism and pseudo-Christian ideals. This was followed by the episodic expansion BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea (2013-2014), which brings players back to Rapture, but this time with the characters from Infinite.
The BioShock fandom is small, but has grown significantly since the release of BioShock Infinite. As of October 2014, there are about 550 fanworks set in the various BioShock universes, with fanart and cosplay also playing a large part in the fandom.
The most popular pairings on AO3 are:
- Booker DeWitt & Elizabeth Comstock (romantic and platonic)
- Rosalind Lutece & Robert Lutece (romantic and platonic)
