NaBloPoMo - aka I suck at this game

Nov 07, 2013 17:13

So, it took all of three days for me to fail at NaBloPoMo. Color me unsurprised >_<

3. What was your first fandom love(s)? Your first ship(s)?

Technically, my first fandom-type love was of Sailor Moon. I shipped Usagi/Mamorou (or Serena/Darien, whatever you prefer) before I even knew what shipping was. I would watch the shows in the morning every day before school, and then again years later when the show was on Cartoon Network.

I was never uber involved in the Sailor Moon fandom, but I did read a lot of fic at a bunch of sites that are now defunct (which makes me sad :(). Every time something pops up on my tumblr dash, I still smile, and I am unabashedly excited for the new series starting in January.

If we're talking online fandoms, my first was Harry Potter/Buffy crossovers, where I met my brain twin, dream_mancer in the Yahoo groups. I didn't really have any set crossover ships - I pretty much read anything. Shout out if you read "The boy who lived and the girl who died twice," a thousand and one times in fic.

However, my first OTP was Harry/Hermione. All aboard the HMS Pumpkin Pie.

4. Share your favorite stories (with links!) from your first fandom love(s)/ship(s). Tell us why you still love them.

I don't even know if I still have links, to be honest. A lot of fics have since been taken down, or the author has left fandom and deleted their journal altogether.

I can tell you that my favorite Harry Potter series is, and probably always will be, Paradigm of Uncertainty by madlori. (*waves*) It was one of the first Harry/Hermione fics I ever read, and it has stuck with me ever since.

5. What show from your childhood would you love to bring back?

Anything that was on the TGIF and the One Saturday Morning blocks on ABC. Family Matters, Full House, Step by Step, Boy Meets World, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Dinosaurs, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Friday was the only day out of the week I was allowed to stay up until ten, and it was just to watch TGIF. I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for Girl Meets World to start.

6. What's your current fandom love(s) and/or ship(s)?

This is a little complicated. I'm not really involved in the Harry Potter fandom anymore, but I still count Harry/Hermione among my OTPs. Just like I am not (and never was, really) involved with Buffy, but Buffy/Angel is also a forever OTP. I still count Veronica Mars and Logan/Veronica as fandom loves as well, although again - no longer truly involved there, either.

I've dropped out of the Supernatural fandom for the most part, mostly because I stopped watching after Season 5. I still write, and it's all AUs. I still have a crazy, passionate, unmatched love for Ruby, and still ship Dean/Ruby like a house on fire (no pun intended, SPN fans.)

Current fandom love is definitely Teen Wolf, thanks to a certain brain twin who shall remain nameless :-P "Just a fun show about werewolves," she said. "It'll be fun," she said. SHE LIED. Now there are FEELS EVERYWHERE. I don't have any OTPs for this fandom - I can pretty much pair everyone with everyone, but oh my God, I have my fingers crossed that Allison/Isaac/Scott will be a thing that happens. I just really need it to. Like a lot.

I am also really into The Avengers. Reading lots of fic, not really writing, although I do have a few ideas rolling around that I might try and start. Again, no set ships here, either. I like Steve/Tony a little more than most, but otherwise, I can ship everyone with everyone. Or everyone/everyone because Everyone Is Poly Because Avengers.

7. Share your favorite stories from your current fandom love(s)/ship(s). Tell us why they're amazeballs if you're so inclined.

Oh maaan. I am just going to direct you to my Ao3 Bookmarks Page. There are a few other fics I am following that are not completed yet, but these are just some of my favorites.
