Humor is a literary tool used to induce amusement or laughter.

Comedy can be used as the base genre of fanworks, but is often just touched on to lighten the tone. On the other hand, there is also dark humor which purposely makes light of something generally considered to be horrible. In some cases there is dry humor, which may be considered high brow by some, but boring by others.

Many characters are known to use humor as a safety blanket, hiding their true personalities behind jokes.

Fan Vids

Humor is a genre of fanvids created in order to show a fandom's funny lines or a humorous plot, otherwise it focuses on a character or pairing (or even a group). They could sometimes even be considered a crack!vid.

On a fanvid's subject line, "humor" can be usually found. Video captures from other shows/films, soundtrack or subtitles can often be seen or heard in the vids to showcase a fan reaction or add humor.

Most Commonly Used Sources

  • white noise image/sound
