Fandom Meme  
I know I should be doing my homework (actually, I'm thinking about a pillow).  But I found this meme while browsing some old post of strangevisitor7. I asked her to give me three fandoms.

She gave me Doctor Who, The Lord of the Rings, and CSI: NY.

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms.
You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

Doctor Who

1.  Watching cable TV while on competition trips and family trips.  I annoyed everyone because I just found it interesting - I had never seen anything like this.  And being a sci-fi and history nut, I was immediately attracted.

2.  Oh, most definitely.  I will forever watch and be a fan of this show.

3.  I've only watched the 2005 reboot.  So my favorite episode since then was "The Unicorn and the Wasp" followed closely by "Blink". 

4.  ABSOLUTELY!  I write mostly Human Doctor stories right now and have gotten some good reviews.  Ialso am begin to delve into writing about the Master (Pre-The Sound of Drums).  I love to read good fanfics also (mostly crossovers and Human Doctor stories).

5.  Yes!  This show is addictive and fun at the same time!

The Lord of the Rings

1.  When The Fellowship of the Ring came out in theaters in 2001.  I kept seeing previews of it and asked my parents what it was all about.  My dad took me to the movie and I was hooked!  I got a hold of the books and fell in love!

2.  Hey, my Cornerstone class is about the books and movies.  Can I be any more a fan than that?

3.  My favorite book/movie was The Return of the King.  I felt that it was the best culmination of a book series that I have ever read (and watched).

4.  I am starting to write in this fandom.  I am putting an Elvish OC into the histories.  If you are interested, the only story up right now is "First Encounter".

5.  It's growing in popularity everyday.  I would love to introduce children to this because it is such a wonderful story with a lot of lessons that can be learn from it.


1.  In all honesty, it was to prospect of watching Gary Sinise every week that got me into the fandom.  Major fan of his.  Then the rest of the actors drew me in and I became a loyal fan.

2.  I'll will be forever a fan of this show.  Though I am sad to see Melina leave, I'm glad Gary isn't.  I don't I could handle it if he does (yes, I'm a freaking fangirl).

3.  I can't answer this because there is no answer.  I love all the episodes - but I will say that I enjoyed the Compass Killer arc.

4.  I have started to write in this fandom - though right now I have hit a writer's block.  I've been crossing the fandom with Criminal Minds, with Hotch and Flack being half-brothers.  It has been fun to write.

5.  Yes!  They need to in order to keep the TV series running.  I would cry if it was cancelled.  My mom is already a fan (thanks to me) and I hope to get more people into it soon.

ditto :D i think if gary quit i would just stop watching there and then. i'd feel a bit sad for doing so but i couldn't help it. i'd like to think he'd be doing other projects that i could keep an eye on instead :)

I haven't decided if I would stop watching if he left. I know that I would cry and stop for a while.

i think the rational side of me would like to think i'd at least give it a chance. but the rest of me would just go off in a strop :)

Ooh...I'll play. This could be interesting.

Let's see...

Doctor Who
I will call her George: Winchesters (2)strangevisitor7 on August 25th, 2010 09:26 pm (UTC)
I started watching CSI:NY for Gary too. But I love Montana and Danny. Plus Adam was one to the ghostfacers from SPN, so I loved it when he got added to the cast.

I really enjoy this meme so I'd like to play again.
