Just something I think about sometimes (not because I think it's likely, but because I hear people talking about fandoms a lot).
I'd probably find some way to troll them horribly. (No matter which story it was.) It would be just too tempting to try to mess with people. Also I just tend not to be a nice person when in writer mode |'D
I'm selfish. If I made something I'd be doing it for me. I might be more inclined to keep making stuff if others seemed to enjoy it since I can satisfy myself to a degree just thinking about something without actually making it.
If I had a fandom (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-[x100000]-y unlikely), I'd probably avoid it. Generally if you do anything that gets a lot of attention there will be a lot of people who automatically dislike it because it gets a lot of attention (and y'know it might not be what they like), and I really don't like dealing with people who don't like my work. I should probably get over that. Practice?
Robert Kirkman got some massive fandoms on his comics like Invincible and TWD (I'm talking before the current Walking Dead craze from the tv show). He constantly makes fun of the dumb ones and writes a lot of misleading plot twists and things that make some fans angry. Sounds like fun!
Poetry? That's awesome ^^ (I figured Em and Ally probably had something of a fandom because Em had mentioned the donation comic being especially successful compared to the readership size a while back.)
Hmm... I hadn't thought much about haters. That would be an interesting situation... Best thing to do with those probably is ignore them. Unless you can somehow trick them into liking it, but that would require a very, very high awesome level...
Fandom? What is this strange force of which you speak?
Part of me is afraid of my work gaining a fandom because of bad experiences in other fandoms (not the webcomic scene, thank goodness.) and of the act of surrendering something dear to you to others that making something available entails. Now, it should be said this isn't stopping me from trying, but I do so with more than a little worry because... <i>shippers</i>.
Still, I'm sure everything would work out and I'll have nothing to fear. I just have to get to finishing what I've started so there is more than a vague abstraction for them.
