Abstract

This research explores the online communication within slash fandom community in China. Data collecting of daily practices covers SNS using, instant chat, and participation on an anonymous forum. Analysis of the data shows how did Chinese slash community establish through these practices on different online platforms. In this process, its capital system based on contribution has been developed, resisted, and revised. Chinese slash girls acquire social connections, and experience of power by participant in this system. Under the circumstance of current China, such experience might carry more importance than the text of slash fandom does.
