I thought I was pretty hip when I joined Tumblr in 2010. By this I mean I was hip in the general sense, not that joining Tumblr made me hip. I’d been a part of The X-Files community in the late ’90s, so I know about fandom. How naive. I had so much to learn! One concept I learned about: OCs, or original characters.
