How would certain characters react to their fandoms

Postby KeeperIXX » Wed Sep 30, 2015 7:54 pm

Okay, I think we all know that there are some really weird things to found in fandom, and South Park is no exception.

Though I wonder, how would the people of South Park react to knowing what many of us fans have done?

think about it, we've got teenaged girls cosplaying as 4th Grade boys, more than a few fans that adore the kids of South Park so much that even Cartman might find himself getting kidnapped by one or two fangirls that want to take him home with them.

And there's a huge amount of South Park fanfics that feature Yaoi and Yuri pairings of almost every named kid in South Park, and even some who were never given a name!

and that taking into account that the show has consistently portrayed most of the kids of South Park as straight, and while I personally see nothing wrong with same-sex character pairings, makes you wonder how the kids of South Park might react to finding out about those fanfics.

Heaven help them if they find out about Rule 34... that might be a disaster waiting to happen.

Anyway, how do you think the people of South Park would react if they found out about the show's fandom?

I guess it would have to be up to how the characters of South Park learned about it. So if the characters were brought into our reality than I guess people would be leading the characters and would carry them to what they think. If somehow this all happened on the show then it would have to be some sort of weird thing where people were hiding everything from the characters their whole lives. This makes me think of that episode about Earth being a TV show.
What seems to be the officer problem?

The scenario I had in mind was simply the people of South Park end up somehow getting access to certain fan works through the internet, think of it as interdimensional internet access.

Anyway, I imagine Kenny might be the least bothered by most of what he'd see in his part of the fandom, He'd probably appreciate that he gets laid more often in fan works than he does in his canon life.

If they found themselves on Rule34, they probably think its revenge porn. They'd believe that someone was going around hacking webcams while they were having sex.

I can only imagine that there would be a long ass legal battle. South Park v. Rule34. Similar to the case of an English professor named Annmarie Chiarini who found images of herself on xHamster.
