Top Ten Tuesday: Fandoms!

                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

The top ten today is:  Fandoms I’m a part of!


La Femme Nikita- I was maybe a smidge too young to really watch this but I remember loving it so so much.  I remember trying to record all the episodes on VHS (before seasons regularly came out or there was Netflix) and being mad hey wouldn’t fit.  I could name every episode in order of every season.  It was serious.  I didn’t know what a fandom was then and had the internet been like it is now I would have found it!

Moonlight- This TV show really made me understand what a fandom is.

Twilight- I fell hard into this one when I first marathoned the books and it will always have a special place in my heart.

Disney- I’ve always been a huge Disney fan and still as an adult today love all my childhood Disney tales and watch them on the regular.  I get all gooey when I see cute Disney merch and kids finding my favorites for the first time.

Harry Potter- Do I even need to explain this one?  I found it a little later than many but I was so glad when I finally gave in and fell in love.  I still haven’t been to the park yet, but that is a goal of mine in the near future, maybe even this year. 

Sarah J. Maas- Both of her series because I can’t pick just one.  The amazing talk about these and the artwork that fans much more talented than I have created…it’s intense and I love it.  She has also nearly broken all of our hearts several times over so yeah.  I would be broke if I allowed myself to shop on some of the beautiful and amazing sites.  I just reviewed and caught up on Empire of Storms in the Throne of Glass series but A Court of Mist and Fury just....it got to me on such a level I can't process! 

Veronica Mars- I didn’t watch it until it was over sadly.  I didn’t have the channel at first and then once I did I couldn’t start it from the middle (I just can’t) so I watched it when they came out on DVD.  You know because streaming wasn’t as popular and I lived in the middle of the country with snail internet speed.  Bright side when I did get to watch I was able to marathon through and have done so several times and it’s always a fall back to put on and just love.  I was a huge Veronica/Logan shipper!  I was thrilled about the movie and the subsequent books.  I’m a happy little marshmallow.

Vampire Academy- This series…it just blew me away.  I waited until it was over to read and I’m glad I did because it just blew me away.  I read them all pretty quickly and just fell in love with the characters and the story and was rooting for my favorites from the start.  I remember being upset that most of my friends hadn’t read these yet and I had no idea who to talk to about it having not yet discovered all the joys of the bookish community.

Supernatural- I’ve been watching this for so long and it regularly ends up in everyday conversation even if the other person doesn’t know it.  My friends and I send back Supernatural memes and such it’s always great.

The Shadowhunter Universe- I love all of these books.  This deep and never ending world full of characters that we love is amazing.  I love how things in one era may come into play in the present day and how some immortal characters can cross over between them all.  It’s such an amazing world!

General Hospital- This is a soap which I have been watching all of my life.  I kid you not when the 50th anniversary came about there was a special People edition for it and it have time lines for each decade and such and I was reading my copy because of course I have one and I saw plot points for stories I remember and when I saw the year I actually had to stop and look it up.  Like verify I hadn’t lost my mind.  I did in fact remember story/plot points from when I was 5 years old.  WTF? Everyone watched so it was always on each day in the background and eventually I started paying close attention to it but I apparently retained much more than I thought.

                I could really have just listed all the shows/series/books/things I love and filled pages and still never had enough but I figure picking out a couple of the top/active ones was enough.  I can’t really think too hard on it though because even as I get ready to post I want to add/change things.  It’s like picking a favorite book, impossible!


                 Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

    1. I did enjoy the remake as well but I had a soft spot for the original. I remember having all my shades strung up like hers lol

  3. I'm a big General Hospital watcher as well. I record it each day and then when I watch it, I can flip through the parts that I don't care for. My favorite character is Anna and I am really hoping for her and Valentin to get together eventually - and I want Griffin to be her son. Yes, I probably watch too much of it - haha!

    1. Yeah I love Anna but I'm not a fan of Valentin (he's still on my sh*t list) but I do like Griffin. I totally knew he looked familiar when he first started he was young daddy Winchester.

    1. Yes I know Moonlight was awesome and had I been forced to wait for the last three books in the VA series I would not have survived!

  5. How could I forget Veronica Mars?! I love that show. My husband is a huge fan of that one too. Your connection to General Hospital is like mine with Days of Our Lives. I grew up watching that show (and General Hospital & Young and the Restless--although I fell out of watching them in my teens). I don't watch Days any more, but once in a blue moon I'll be home when it's on and just happen to see it on and the memories come flooding back. It's amazing how much the characters became a part of my life. I'd forgotten about Moonlight . . . I don't know that it would make my list, but I did enjoy the show while it was on.

    Thank you sharing! I hope you have a great rest of the week.

    1. I know right Veronica Mars and Moonlight were awesome! Yeah I get all emotional when I watch and they have flashbacks from things that happened back when I used to watch with my Ma. When Lila passed in the show I was actually watching while visiting my Pa a few years after Mas passed away and I cried through the whole flashback episode and for some time after and Pa just understood and handed me tissues.

  8. Disney, Harry Potter, and Supernatural are all on my list too. I didn't really consider book series too much for this one, for some reason, though Sarah J. Maas' ACOTAR series would definitely have made the list.

    1. I know it was hard to try and think of both I could have done 50 shows easy peasy and same for books so just a few of each was HARD

  9. I love Veronica Mars so much (so much). I'm so glad we got a movie out of it. The wait was worth it because of Veronica and Logan!

    1. I know I was so thrilled with the movie and I told my friend when we watched it day it was available that if they change and adjust anything I need them to fix that (and there better be my favorite theme song in there)!
