Fandom is a term which refers to communities where people share the same interest in a cultural object and invest their emotions and their time in it. Within this scenario, fanarts contribute to feed fans passion, giving them a way to express their creativity. This contribution concerns the case of fiction picspam, a specific type of fanart that is particularly useful for creating new stories using screencaps from original audiovisual and visual products. The discussion will be accompanied by a more general analysis that illustrates what kind of picture a fanart is, by listing and briefly examining its different typologies. Finally, the powerful synthetic character of picspam will be highlighted, along with its efficiency in building alternative fictional universes.
