what's it called when you see a fandom liking a character way too much, and you don't really understand why until you see all the fanfic

i mean the character IS likable but not exactly for the fanon reasons

I've also seen That One Fic that does the character real well, sometimes in an AU, and then we all fall in love. (why yrs, yes this has happened to me, why do you ask?)

i think its generally the fanon syndrome when the character is percieved as something he isn't in canon (or some of his features are exaggerated) so they love them for its fanon portrayal
