The Fandom Tag // by None Other Than…Me

The Fandom Tag

Hello friends! Wow…what is it with me and coming up with tags…? Is there something wrong with me? XD

Friends Im Fine GIF

Let’s not dwell on that fact, and instead delve into my latest creation! Since Valentine’s is fast approaching, I thought this would be a great time to talk about the things we (or at least I) really love!

Rules //

• Include the graphic somewhere in your post!

• Answer the questions!

• Tag two fangirls (or boys, I suppose!)

• What’s the first fandom you remember becoming a part of?

Though I didn’t really know what a fandom was at the time, Disney and Pixar have been around for me since I was, well, born. I grew up watching the classic Disney movies, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, in particular. And I remember watching Monsters Inc., Toy Story, and The Incredibles many times too. I guess you could say it was the start of an obsession for obsessions…XD

• What’s the newest fandom you’ve come to enjoy?

That would be Over the Garden Wall! It’s a very short mini series, only ten episodes long, about two brothers who get lost in the forest. It’s surprisingly deep for a cartoon, and the animation is gorgeous. If you have an evening, give it a watch, it’s quite entertaining.

• What’s a fandom guaranteed to give you feels?

That would be Undertale. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, it’s an epic video game with wonderful characters and a crazy, twisted story that you don’t figure right away. Getting to know the characters and how the game works is what really makes my heart hurt. And the fans don’t help with this in making some awesome fan art and fan fictions. It’s a deep, twisty game that will have you crying and laughing at the same time.

• What’s a guilty pleasure fandom of yours?

• What’s the weirdest fandom you’ve heard of or are a part of?

There are so many weird things out there, but to give a classic answer, I’ll say Gravity Falls. It’s the definition of weird. There’s unexplained phenomena. There’s weird and wonderful creatures. There are deep, dark secrets. There are crazy, but lovable characters. THE WHOLE WORLD ALMOST–you know what? Never mind. I’ll let you watch it. You’ll love it, trust me.

It also has the best gifs, so…yeah. There is that. XD

• Favorite popular/widely-known fandom?

That’d be the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. I’m fairly sure almost everyone in the world has heard of this, and for a good reason. Though I’ve only seen the movies, I’ve come to love the characters SO MUCH. It’s magical, it’s epic, and it has Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortenson, so really how can you lose? (Thorin is myyy preeeecious.)

• Favorite bookish fandom?

The Lunar Chronicles!! CRESS IS A DARLING AND THORNE IS A JERK BUT I LOVE HIM. Also, WOLF AND SCARLET ARE SO ADORABLE. AND JACIN AND WINTER AGGGGHHHH. *ahem* Yes. I really like the Lunar Chronicles.

• What do you consider your ‘homebase’, a fandom you can always come back to?

Gosh, who made these questions so hard? (Me. It was me.) It would probably be the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I started watching in 2015, and I remember going to the theater with a big group of people to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. I had watched the previous movies in order with my family, but it was when I saw that movie that I really started loving it. And I’ve seen every Marvel movie in theaters since. It’s a very comforting, familiar fandom for me. (EVEN THOUGH IT’S KIND OF ON FIRE RIGHT NOW BUT IT’S OKAY EVERYTHING’S FINE.)

• What’s a fandom you know all about…but aren’t actually into it?

That would be Star Wars, for me. I watched the prequels, (well, kind of…I kinda skipped over the third one because I was cringing too much…XD), and I know the entire original story and all about the newer installments. So I know everything. I’m just…not that in love with it. It’s fun, and goofy, and entertaining, but…it doesn’t quite grip me like other movies or books have.

• Which fandom has the best characters?

ALL OF THEM. ALL OF THEM ARE GOOD. Ugh, if I really had to choose though…It’d be a three-way tie between Undertale, Marvel, and the Lunar Chronicles. IT’S TOO HARD. Why did I make these questions so hard? XD

• Name your all-time favorite ship.

Hm. NYAGH THERE ARE SO MANY. But I pick Cress and Thorne, because I think they’re really cute and they both support each other so well, her being quiet and whimsical and naive, and him being rough and cocky and a joker. It mixes so beautifully, I could cry. Cress + Thorne =

• What’s a fandom you’re curious about joining?

Sherlock! All I hear is how amazing it is, and I want in on some of the epic-ness! Though I worry for my mental health’s sake…too much emotional trauma may just ruin me… Tell me below if this is a good idea, please. XD

That’s the tag! I nominate Deborah @ The Road of a Writer, Christine @ Musings of an Elf, and Kenzie @ Smudged Thoughts for this tag! And if you’d like to do this tag, feel free! I’d love to see what fandoms you love the most! ^_^ Also, there will be no post next week, since I’ll be on vacation!

New Until Next Time!

      Age of Ultron was EPIC, and I just LOOOVED Doctor Strange! Isn't that the best thing ever? XD

      YAY! I'm happy!! ^_^

  1. OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS TAG SO MUCH!!! I’m so happy you nominated me! Because otherwise I was going to steal it bwahahaha. But but but this tag is EVERYTHING. Can’t wait to do it!!!

    I’m just over here squealing at your answers. We’re apart of like ALL the same fandoms and I LOVE IT.

    I’ve been 100% a Disney fangirl since I was like BORN and I’ve never stopped. Man I’ve watched those movies so many times over the years. XD

    Oh my goodness, Over the Garden Wall! My friend basically forced me to watch it, and by the end I was completely and utterly obsessed. I was not expecting it to be so good and deep! I was in love!

    Okay, I’ve never actually seen Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir but I’ve always wanted to! People seem to really, really love it, and now I’m curious! Undertale, too, is a fandom I’m not a part of but WANT to be. One day, one day…

    ALLLLLL the yes to Gravity Falls and LotR and the MCU and The Lunar Chronicles! UGH. So many of my favorites! <333 ALSO CRESS AND THORN MY OTP. I love them with all my heart and soul!

    Oh man, I thought I was the ONLY one who wasn't that into Star Wars. Like, I appreciate the fandom, but I just can't really get into it. You're making me feel better! I felt so alone over here. XD We can just enjoy all the OTHER fandoms, yeah? Hehe.

    SHERLOCK. IS. AMAZING. I will warn you, there is quite a bit of content. Especially in episode 1 of season 2. I wish it was cleaner because OH MY WORD. That show is mindblowing. I think you'd love it! But…yeah. Get ready for the feels. Eheheheh.

    Thank you for making this tag and tagging me! I'M SO EXCITED!!!

    1. EEEEEE I’M SO GLAD!!! Haha, you’re welcome!! CHRISTINE, I’M FLAILING, THANK YOU!! I can’t wait to see your answers!!!

      REALLY?! We must be long lost twins…that’s the only explanation…XD

      Oh yes, since I was a tiny tot, I was enthralled with Disney movies! <333 And the best thing is, they never get old! (At least for me. XD)

      It's SO. GOOD. SAME, I wasn't expecting it to grip me so hard, especially since it was only ten episodes, but it really did!! 😀

      Oh my word, it's such goofy fun! It has cheesy moments (very, very cheesy…XD), but it also has really adorable parts too!! ^_^ Undertale is SO beautiful. The characters are hilarious and soooooo memorable, and the story is RIVETING. The ending will shock you…O__o You should definitely check it out someday! 😀

      YES YES YES TO ALL!! It's almost ridiculous the amount of fandoms I like…XD But they're just so goooood! :^)

  2. Oooh shiny! I shall steal this when Fantasy Month is over and I have some free space on my blog again!

    I… am not familiar with like half the fandoms you mentioned. 8-D

    Sherlock is good and I love it… but there is some content – though I can’t call anything specific to mind at the moment except for the episode with this whole weird scene with lady whatsherface (my brain is fried right now and I can’t think of names) who sits there naked when she meets Sherlock. I think that’s in season 1 or 2… so that was… odd. We fast-forwarded, but nothing happened, it was just her way of not giving away any clues by the way she dresses or whatevs. I like crime shows and Sherlock Holmes, so I highly enjoyed this modernization of Sherlock… and Smaug + Bilbo as buddies is fun, as well.

    1. Yes, please do steal it! I would love to see your answers! ^_^

      Haha! Well, consider them recommendations! XD

      I’ve heard nothing but good things about it…but yeah, I have also heard there is some content. Huh. That’s quite an odd scene…XD But that makes sense, if she was trying not to give away any clues! I’ll remember to fast forward at that part… 😛 I haven’t gotten into crime shows much (or Sherlock Holmes), but I would really like to branch out from my little fantasy hovel. 😀 Haha, they seem to follow each other into other movies/shows quite often, hmm? 🙂

      1. I love crime shows! The one I would probably recommend would be Blue Bloods, it’s the most family-friendly of the ones I’ve seen, I think in 8 seasons there have only been about 2 episodes I didn’t care for? Which is a pretty good track record, because I’m picky.

        NCIS, Person of Interest (though the last season was disappointing and had a few episodes I wish I’d known to skip), Grimm (which is DARK but combines fantasy + crime shows and is therefore in my opinion awesomesauce), and Psych are also favorites. (the first episode of Psych is meh… and the show really doesn’t start to get good until about episode 8, but after that they really got into the swing of the humor and everything started working and is hysterical – does have quite a bit of language for a TV show, though).

        1. Ooh, I’ve heard good things about that one! I’ll definitely check that one out! Wow, only 2 episodes? That’s fantastic! I suppose there will always be some episodes that are ishy, but that’s great!

          My parents watched NCIS: Los Angeles for a while and they really liked it. I’ll have into look at Person of Interest…that’s too bad the last season was a flop… 😦 I’ve been kind of hesitant of Grimm, but it looks SO EPIC, I might have to give it a shot. Oh my word, Psych is the best. XD I’ve watched several episodes of that one and they’re always hilarious. 😀 I agree, it does have a bit more language than I care for. But all in all, it’s a really funny show!

          Thanks for the recs! I’ll have to add them to my TBW list! 😉
