The AO3 Tag of the Day is: Congress right now
Are Supreme Court decisions just Constitution fandom discourse?
Your third eye is wide open tonight, friend.
I think you have a point there. They write fanon based heavily in canon (the Constitution), Extended Universe documents (information about original meaning and intention, history, etc), and existing fanon (precedence). They also get the right to say if new fan theories (new laws, etc) should be considered viable or if they’re canon divergent or AU (unconstitutional). And we thought some of our fandom showdowns were intense!
I will pay actual money for a summary of the US political system in fannish terminology.
