Fanfic Flamingo is a fandom-specific Advice Animal.

The structure of this meme is a graphic with three parts: (1) Something that occurs in fandom or a fanfic that one is reading or writing, (2) a flamingo head, and (3) one's response, which may be advice, OTT reactions, mildly ironic statements, or funny observations about fandom and its quirks..

For instance: "FAVORITE AUTHOR LEAVES FOR ANOTHER FANDOM .... RESENT THAT FANDOM FOREVER."

Fanfic Flamingo is diligent about accessibility, always including digital text to supplement the graphic.

The Fanfic Flamingo is currently hosted on Tumblr and maintained by anatsuno with the help of marina. It originated in a joke post by butterflythread.[1]
