Introduction

The early Backstreet Boys community was found at various personal web sites, on mailing lists and centered around FanFiction.Net.

Timeline

2000

  • Sometime around June of 2000, the site Bad Fanfic! No Biscuit! was created by Siubhan and Joan the English Chick. The site, last updated in January of 2001, introduced or helped further the concept of badfic into a number of additional fan fiction communities, including this one. Unlike some badfic websites or sites which just pointed out badfic, as in of accidental inferior quality, the site had deliberate badfic and explanations as to what was not right with the story, what made the story bad.

Pairings

The pairings displayed in fanfic about the band has grown with its fan base. Many early stories paired a member of the group (usually youngest member Nick Carter) with an OFC. As the fan base grew up, and fans discovered slash, the members were paired up with each other, which at first was mostly Brian Littrell/Nick Carter due to their close friendship, nowadays the main pairing is Kevin Richardson/Nick Carter, even after Kevin's departure from the band. However, any one of the members can be, and have been, paired up with any other member, and "crossover" pairings with members of NSync are equally common.
