Sometimes canon just doesn’t get it right. Luckily, there’s fan fiction to save the day. Whether it’s fixing major problems in the plot, putting together characters who have way more chemistry than the leads, giving tortured characters a respite (and giving happy characters some emotional turmoil), fanfic is an essential part of fandom. It allows fans to imagine their own futures for beloved characters and explore possibilities that the show or book won’t. Fan fiction readers and writers range from the casual, every once in a while fandom participant to the most hardcore of fans. For those who want to show off their taste in reading material, these fan fiction enamel pins are a great way to help you find other fanfic aficionados!

Although we obviously love books here at Book Riot, there’s something about fan fiction that scratches an itch that mainstream publishing can’t always reach. For one thing, you can find exactly the tropes and vibes you’re looking for from a story with a simple search. Often while picking up a book, it’s hard to tell if you’re going to end up with an uplifting read or a tearjerker, but fanfic is usually more upfront about those expectations. It’s also nice to dive into a familiar story and cast of characters, whether to right a canon wrong or just spend more time in that world.

These enamel pins aren’t focused on any particular genre, though there are plenty of those available on Etsy, too! Instead, they celebrate fan fiction as whole, both from the reader and writer perspective. Some of these label the wearer as a fan of a particular trope, while others admit a predilection for “Plot? What Plot” stories. Invite others to ask who you ship (if you dare) and wear your fan status on your sleeve (or lapel)!
