Talk:Breaking the Fourth Wall

From Fanlore
Jump to: navigation, search

Needed: a variety of interesting, higher profile examples of fans and/or press purposely putting TPTB on the spot regarding fanworks -- asking actors and such about slash and RPF, showing or sending fanworks to TPTB, making actors read fanworks aloud in public. In other words, purposely putting TPTB on the spot in order to get a public response or to force an issue, create controversy and visibility. The focus of this page wouldn't be benign instances of fans offering and sharing fanworks with TPTB, but the more wankish, in-your-face practices. If folks have examples, would they add them to this page, or links here on the talk page to pertinent things? --MPH (talk) 02:09, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Is this the correct template? --MPH (talk) 02:10, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Name Change

I'd like to propose a title change for this page. Perhaps something more along the line of "Crossing the Fourth Wall." "Violate" is a bit loaded. --MPH (talk) 00:51, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Stumbling across this years later, and wanted to second your suggestion...Perhaps "Breaking the Fourth Wall," which reflects typical usage? "Crossing" also works! - Fandomgeographies (talk) 01:10, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
I like "breaking." Any objections from others? --MPH (talk) 02:06, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
Going to give it a couple days, but barring any objections, I'm going to go ahead and rename the page! - Fandomgeographies (talk) 21:53, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Took me a bit longer than "a couple days," but...moved! - Fandomgeographies (talk) 16:56, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
