Old fandom meme, revived

Need to do this again.  New journal, things have shifted a bit, so time to re-list my fandoms:

Harry Potter - still my main fandom, and the one almost all my fics are written in.

ETA (4/3/10):
Merlin - has become my secondary fandom, though I still adore Buffy as much as I ever did. Merlin is my second big slash fandom, and more so because it links back to my age-old favorite haunts of Arthurian Legend, even if they are giving it a new twist.

Buffy/Angel - I constantly say that if Buffy were still on the air, it would probably dominate a lot of my posts.  I still love the characters as much as I did in the very first season.  Possibly even more.  For those who follow, my #1 is Willow, followed by Drusilla, Tara, Lorne, and Spike.

Star Trek - the only other fandom where I posted a fan-fic that wasn't a crossover or a drabble.  One of my earliest fandoms, and something that still calls to me on occasion.  God, I hope the new movie won't suck...

Elfquest - second only to HP in the amount I got sucked in, though all my fannish involvment was with people I knew personally.  I wrote, drew, and listed myself to death on this one.  And collected every issue through New Blood, I think.  I'm now out of the loop.  But for me, it really ended with Shards.  Favorites - Winnowill (yes, you read that right), Venka, Cutter, Skywise, Rayek.

Firefly - the further away from its time in prime time we get, the more I wonder why it didn't click with me first time around.  I still haven't officially written fic for this universe, but I think it's only a matter of time now, what with the HP crossover fic I wrote last time I did drabbles.  I had too much fun, hinting at everyones' voices without giving names...  I think it worked pretty well.  Favorites - Inara, Zoe, Wash.

Star Wars - but I haven't played in this world in a long time.  It's more a fall back, where I get a silly-stupid grin on my face, when I remember how I felt about it.  Only the original trilogy, though.  The new stuff... :S

Stargate/SG1/Atlantis - Went to see the movie on a free promo ticket, and really, though it bugged me in some ways, and it took me a few seasons to get into SG1, this is another fandom where I skirt the edges sometimes.  I just love the way they took history and mythology and space travel and mixed it all.  They did an excellent job.  Favorites - Daniel, Teal'c, Rodney, Teyla.

Dr Who/Torchwood - Didn't really get into Dr Who until I started dating my husband.  And I'm very picky about my Doctors.  My favorite, as is with most watchers, is the one who was current when I began watching: Sylvester McCoy.  But I was thrilled when the BBC, after many years of ignoring the franchise, decided to start it up again.  And I haven't been disappointed at all, really.  There have been a few less stellar episodes, but really?  It's been a blast.  And Torchwood?  God, who wouldn't love a show where you get to see Captain Jack every episode?

Forever Knight - Aside from Buffy, still the best vampire show that made it to TV.  Deserved better attention and a much longer run.

Queer as Folk - relatively new for me, but hit me hard with a vengance.  How can you not be captivated by Brian's snark?  (And what is it about snarky men that draws me? :P)

Others -
Anime/Manga -
Star Blazers/Space Battleship Yamato - my first-ever foray into anime.  Still holds a dear place in my heart.
Fruits Basket - zodiac animals, implied slash, and angst.  *happysigh*
Oran High School Host Club - boys boys boys, and twins!
Nana - Love the dynamics here.

Comic Books -
XMen - TV and movies as well, but always it will come back to the originals for me.
Batman - I love how broken Bruce is.  Even when playing the playboy.
Teen Titans - Dick and company.  Not the cartoon, though.  That annoyed me big time.

TV -
Babylon 5 - Ivanova, Talia and Marcus...I loved this series for the first four seasons...
V - Diana was the biggest brat I'd ever seen.  And so fun to watch!
Battlestar Galactica - I never got to watch all the originals, but I did love them.  And I love the new series as well.  I only hope this last season doesn't suck.
Quantum Leap - except for the final episode. :P
Law & Order - I'm such a junkie...
House - Hugh Laurie!
Heroes - Please don't let it be cancelled cause of this strike...

Other -
LOTR, Pirates of the Caribbean, Velvet Goldmine, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast (all forms), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (all forms again), Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Sims...

Have I gone on long enough? :P

Refresh my memory, do you have to write fanfic for it to be considered part of the fandom? Or does there just have to be a large fanbase for it to be a fandom?

Does Anne of Green Gables count as one? And I think Disneyland does, or should!

It's one of those murky things. Everyone defines it differently. I'd say Anne has enough of a following.

As for Disneyland...
Check this out.

Whoa, that is crazy! It's really only a matter of time before that stuff is more and more popular!

I think I'd count MASH as a fandom too. Lots of fanfic and rpgs out there for it.

I saw that and immediately thought of you. You so know you'd have gone there for college if you could... :D

Yes, I would, too. :)

Is it wrong that I want to write up something with a charrie that is obsessed with knitting? (NOT Molly W.) My pup is starting to get nervous about me.

I need to know, what color preference your sister has for the baby booties. :D *pokes*

No. Should I ask who?

Oh! Green. Sorry, life has been nuts.

Sev is nervous about me and my hobby....lmao

Same here! I'm only into QaF for about five months now and I'm totally worshipping Brian! *G*
