Phandom and the Fourth Wall
The term is used by Dan and Phil themselves - see the official "Phandom Member #" writsbands on sale in their online shops.
Dan and Phil have made several videos directly interacting with their fandom:
- My Tumblr Tag! posted on AmazingPhil July 1, 2013.
- Dan and Phil vs. Tumblr posted on danisnotonfire July 11, 2013.
- MY TUMBLR TAG 2! (with Dan) posted on AmazingPhil Sept 15, 2014. It should be noted that for this video, Phil actually notified his fans via twitter to use a specific Tumblr tag for the posts that they wished him to see, showing a good understanding of Fourth Wall issues in fandom.
The Phandom is especially dynamic on Tumblr and Twitter, producing numerous gifsets, lots of fanart and stories.
As of May 6, 2015, there were 1734 works in the Phandom/Fantastic Foursome AO3 tag, most of which were Dan/Phil slash. The earliest was posted on March 25, 2011. The most popular had 67k hits and 2000+ kudos.
