Woo fandom chat :corn:
Should we go around saying what fandoms we're 'in' or something?
I started out with Harry Potter (and am still ridiculously invested - seeing Cursed Child in the autumn and excited as heck for Fantastic Beasts) and now am into bits of a whole range of stuff including Doctor Who (the old stuff I don't like Capaldi much), Sherlock, GBBO, Gilmore Girls (& Guys!), Recovery Road, Shadowhunters, the Marvel films, generally most films/books tbh :thumbsup:

Yay, fandom. Where to start...
I ship Dramione in HP for God knows why. I just love the idea of the anti hero is really a good guy, he was mislead, circumstances force him to be the bad guy etc.. They were so cute together in my head.

Johnlock, of course. Haha. No explanation needed on that one.

I also ship 00Q for some odd reason. (james bond)

How I Met Your Mother - swarkles (robin and barney)
Gossip Girl - chair (chuck and blair)
Marvel Cinematic Universe - stony because there is so much sexual tension I just cant
Ace Attorney - Edgey-poo and Phoenix, ofc

Anybody from UK remember the whole Milifandom thing last year? It is amazing because I was constantly on tumblr that week, and suddenly milifandom come out of nowhere. I lived at a labour-stronghold, so everyone talked about it in yikyak. Haha. Milibae. <3

Ha, that was great. There's actually a big UK politics fandom on tumblr and it was a huge thing on LJ at the beginning of the last government. Somewhat embarrassingly, it's the only fandom I'm really invested in other than D & P (and harry potter but everyone's into that right), but its tumblr side gets a bit weird sometimes (plus ça change)

2013 was a shitty year for a queer person to be in any fandom
so it was probably more of a result of multiple things happening in a short span of time. for me it was kicked off by SPN in the first half of 2013, following by Moffat - getting on my nerves for a long time with the final nail in coffin of Capaldi announcement and dismissal of non-cis-male doctor, OUAT breaking up Mulan and Aurora (yesthankyousomuchforanothertragiclesbianstorylikeIneedthatshit) and the final nail was s3 of bbc Sherlock (and again more what Moffat said behind scenes) that made me decide to retire from any fandom world as such, (Finale of Faking it just justifying my decision, and some other shows as well), but damn world is a sad and blank place and without fandoms even more. (so with phandom it seems relaxing cause I don't have to worry about things that I would worry with TV like representation in characters and such and getting pissed off because as Dan said (I wasn't there for his 2012 thing, but yeah) 'on tumblr people accept, but real life is shit and has tons of judgment' (not exact words, but can't find the ls now) and then have a tv show where the runners treat me as a viewer as shit - well who needs that, not me 8-) )


I suspected SPN would be the answer, but yeah I forgot about a lot of the Moffatt stuff ugh. I've been watching The 100 and it was going pretty well and then of course they had to fall into the (yesthankyousomuchforanothertragiclesbianstorylikeIneedthatshit) trap and I'm close to rage-quitting based on some other dumb character choices. Decent queer-friendly fandoms are hard to come by in any year..


ah I completely forgot about The 100 - so many repressed memories. Yes that one too... :( Also quit orphan black cause delphine&cosima were again starting to fall under above mentioned trap and I also hated the introduction of male clones (like srsly wtf why nope). (and honestly I am probably the only one who doesn't get why so many ppl worship GoT...) Still watching orange is the new black and am intrigued what will happen in 2nd season of Powers (I don't want to praise it before I'll see where they'll take it).

and I've highlighted your sentence, cause never a truer words have been spoken - I'm seriously at loss what to watch/read... :corn:

I'm in/have been in... possibly too many fandoms... As seems to be fairly common, HP, Doctor Who (pre-showrunner!Moffat)/Torchwood, and MCU are pretty big keystones of my fandom life, and I'm actually a bit of a sports nut, though tennis and F1 and probably the only sports I'd really say I was in the fandom of(/that a fandom really exists for). My very first fandom was High School Musical, then Twilight (briefly!), Merlin, Inception, The Social Network, One Direction, Les Misérables, James Bond (I also ship 00Q swofro!), Teen Wolf, Shameless, and Pride probably all deserve a mention. I will read fic of pretty much anything I've read/watched though, and am a ridiculous multishipper too - D&P are pretty much the only people I don't have about five ships for!

Oh man, Milifandom... Honestly, I still feel like that might have been a very bizarre dream the UK collectively had!

I kept meaning to get into The 100, but glad I seem to have dodged that bullet :/ IDK what your general interests are, awkwardly, but I'd recommend the 2014 film Pride to absolutely anyone looking for queer friendly stories! It's based on the true story of a queer group in London who supported the UK miner's strike in the 80s, and while not 100% happy - the presence of HIV/AIDs is unavoidable - is a wonderful uplifting tale of solidarity and unity at its core! (though it is also 100% white, and entirely focussed on the G and the L... but still my favourite film!) And books-wise, I haven't read too much recently, but Malinda Lo is reliably pretty great for YA fantasy.

edit:
Don't know how I forgot to mention Hamilton!! I am obsessed with Hamilton at the moment, it's a little ridiculous.

ah yes, I've seen the trailer for Pride, but haven't had time to watch it yet. I really need something uplifting (cause I'm just so disappointed with the local irl LGBTQ+ community lately..) So thank you for reminding me :tu:

regarding fandoms (or all things I've watched cause I've watched things that I didn't participate in fandoms) I guess the list would be super long as I'm Phil's age group. So it would be anime for me as well (though NOT pokemon :D but lots of sailor moon only to find out years and years later that there was a lot of queer censorship on that one from german tv. :x And then of course many many more (around 150, I still have a list with my top ones :rofl: ), but I stopped some years ago cause I think the quality of anime stories went down around 4 or so y ago.) Then along came Buffy, and I had my room full of sarah michelle gellar posters :D (and yeah, will never forgive willow/tara which made me realize for the first time why I had so many SMG posters...ehm... but I wasn't affected by it at the time as much, cause I was too preoccupied with buffy herself, so I only later I realized a lot of problematic stuff - like honestly I don't understand why Phil is such Spike fan with the [trigger warning - though I won't mention it] things the writers made him do. Yes when you watch it as very young person you don't realize, but omg please tell me that he realizes now... :? ) Then there was HP for YEARS (I guess those were the best times I ever had, nostalgic :cry: ) Then again anime, then DW, SPN, Sherlock (I deeply regret Superlock time, though it was a valuable sj lesson I guess...). I wish DW got a different showrunner & diverse cast so I could go back to watching it... (watched Torchwood as well, but that depressed me for good - I mean why do even queer ppl themselves have to write horrific tragic stuff) and lots of the other shows that I mentioned above after that. (and of course the whole thor/avengers, cause of Loki cause living in perpetual crisis just makes me connect with such characters but can't wait forever for lady loki can I...)

The only thing I never watched is in the flesh, cause of being it depressing too, and I'm just at the point that I can't anymore, but everytime I watch katrindepp I just... gosh :cry:

Thank you awkwardly for that fanvid of in the flesh. fantastic. I really like the series, just wish they had done 3 episodes for the second series and then hopefully had had a third one after. And I agree, Torchwood ripped my heart out and the last season was a waste of time.

I get frustrated when potential character development that is tangible and honest, is left to wither, or warped due to mainstream acceptability.

As for Harry Potter, not enough space in the universe (even if it is expanding)(in some parts)(supposedly its' shrinking elsewhere)(not my point) to say all I would say. If there's a pairing out there, I've read it. Tentacles are everywhere (and so are snakes). Marcus Flint/HP always stood out. Also, read o/a/b (whatev they're now called) before they were called anything. I've actually been around long enough for the second wave to come along. Moving on.

Anyone remember a canadian teen series named Higher Ground? great music, great actors, single season.

!!!! Man I powered through the whole of Dance Academy in like two weeks and was so sad when it was all over. I still go back and re-watch it all the time though. It was silly fluff and so dramatic but something about it was so good! Most of the actors were so good. I think I just had a big soft spot for Sammy. goes into corner and cries

In the flesh is so, so good, but as you said, very, very sad. I'm so mad the BBC canceled it. First they did that with The Hour, and now this perfect show >:^(

Yep, that's the one! I just truly appreciate his perfect perfect face. :garbage:

You know, I've liked many a band than featured gratuitous making out on stage, but that era of Glambert was almost too much for even me. No fandom should have that much 'content'.

My husband has (finally) started watching Sherlock, and today he came into the room and asked, "So are they gay? Were they gay in the books? Or did they just write them as a couple in this version." I just burst out laughing. He was so confused as to why I was laughing so hard. After my laughing had subsided he asked again, "So are they?" I just said, "just watch the show. then get back to me with that. He is on episode 3 of the first season. :rofl: He was so annoyed that I wouldn't tell him. I told he to look us some stuff on it if he wanted to know so bad.

He just came back to me (hours later) and said, "So they are." I just laughed again. I asked him where he looked, he had googled it and was bombarded with JohnLock stuff.

I for one can't wait until he watches the rest of the show and see what he says. He is very much in the 'they are' boat now I can't wait til season 2. :rofl: I told him he has accidentally entered a fandom. He had no idea what I was on about. I am having way too much fun with this.

Hi guys!

I have the weirdest mix of fandoms if you ask me:

Sherlock
Pokemon
My Little Pony
Taylor Swift

also was very active in the small Akuma No Riddle fandom on tumblr while the anime series was airing i guess over a year ago now. it's not active anymore though ):

I didn't think I had that many fandoms until I started thinking properly about it. Now I wonder how I have time for anything :rofl:

-Harry Potter- Easily my longest fandom membership. Still obsessed to this day. I wouldn't say I have any ships though (except for me and oliver wood)

-Game of Thrones- I will literally avoid social media until I watch the new episode

-The walking dead- Forever shipping Caryl

-Gossip girl/glee/torchwood etc- I'm not still as obsessed with these fandoms, but I definitely was when they were at their prime.
