I've recently uploaded a handful of filksongs to AO3, in light of franzeska
's clarification of the TOS FAQ
saying that the important measure of "fanworks" is that they were "created in a fandom context for a fandom audience." Yay!
Um. So... how do I tag them? I wrote filk for kink_bingo. Is kink_bingo the *fandom?* That seems... wrong. Is the original tune the "fandom," which would mean adding half a dozen new single-work fandoms? I wrote filk about coffee. Not about sentient coffee (in which case, it could go under "anthropomorphic"), but about coffee. No fandom. No characters. No pairings. It's to the tune of & in the style of a popular Pagan song, which is probably unknown outside of Pagan circles. (The Pagan song is ttto a traditional tune, but it doesn't match the original tone or style.) ( I'm not actually looking for answers as much as for exploration of the questions. )
