Wordplay as Fanworks refers to puns or wordplay which are not part of a larger fanwork, but which reference a particular canon/fandom, or fandom more generally. Visual puns are included in this genre.

For written puns, this short-form fanwork has flourished on Tumblr, possibly because the site's design makes it feel like one-line posts are just as worthy as longer posts.
