I've seen lots of fanfic and fan art and fanvids being offered for charities, to raise funds for conventions and other events, and an occasional personal plea for help. But I suspect the tumblr community is much more open to the ....we can't really call this commercialization of fanworks....what would we call it?  Casual monetization of a previously gift economy?

Anyhow here is the Fanlore section on the topic (still a work in progress),

Fandom has always been a moving target.

I don't know what to think about the Julia and Joel storyline. first. I have always been a really huge fan of Joel. But feel like they're doing his character disservice this season with the way that he's reacting to Julia, because he's always seemed a little bit more intuitive than  the writers are portraying him right now. I feel like Julia is not saying anything because Joel made it look SO easy and so there's a lot of pressure to do just as well, if not better. internally. and the signals she's getting from Joel right now, granted he is distracted, are confirming and adding to that pressure. So that makes a little more sense to me. we'll have to see how it plays out.
