Structure of the page

I wanted to add something about the promo vid Dylan and Tyler did on the boat (before I realized that there is already a dedicated Derek/Stiles page - really why was I even surprised? *grin*), but I wasn't sure where to put it (now I know it's already on the ship page). Since TW is a show where the creators and actors take part in fandom or at least interact a lot with fandom, I'm not sure if it wouldn't be better to make a different structure of the page, separating into "fan-fandom" and "cast-fandom" instead of listing according to platform. Or something like "fandom", "cast/show reactions to fandom" and including the various Web 2.0 outlets in the respective parts. The current structure looks a bit... confused to me. What do you think?

(Way after the fact) I agree, mixing TPTB's involvement with fandom in with intra-fandom info does seem confused. I'll think about how it might be best to tease those two intertwined bits apart, if no one objects? --PhoenixFalls (talk) 00:34, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Did you manage to resolve this question? There will be a movie coming soon, produced by Paramount+ with two confirmed actors. I think the interaction between fans and cast will be much bigger now even more than they confirmed this on Twitter -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 02:28, 25 September 2021 (UTC)


Anyone know more about this trope/can confirm that it is a trope? I just realized that the two examples I was thinking of were by the same author, so now I'm not so sure. Safe at Anchor and Unmapped--æþel (talk) 04:19, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I've seen it in works by lots of different authors, and the term "anchor" is used in at least one episode with roughly the same meaning as in fanworks. I've even seen people use it in meta, treating it as canon instead of fanon. I'm pretty sure we can say it's a trope. --PhoenixFalls (talk) 22:36, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Became a trope? Can you tell me more about this anchor? -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 02:31, 25 September 2021 (UTC)


Can't tell yet whether it was big enough to matter, but in case it was, a couple links:

And there were people in the tag blaming the blackout for torrents not being up as quickly as usual? (Context: Actors were given fanfic to read at SDCC, generally were uncomfortable/laughed about it, fandom reacted predictably.) Even if this particular instance blows over, might be relevant to a more general page about fandom/TPTB interaction over fanfic, as I remember basically the same thing happening around series 3 of Sherlock. --PhoenixFalls (talk) 08:57, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

This sort of thing (TPTB and "forced" public fanfic reading should certainly have its own page, with a link to TPTB's Involvement and Interference. --MPH (talk) 12:19, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Teen Wolf Paramount+ film

As new information on film production and cast comes out it's likely that future editors and I are changing this page. I think at first its structure has slight modifications -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 02:23, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
