Answering your questions since last month
Bekah Kerr searched: What fandom are you most into right now?
For those who don’t know: fandom, noun: the community that surrounds and celebrates a particular television show, book, movie, etc.
Why, yes. This is a picture of me. How did you guess?
It’s difficult to say which I am most into, as there are so many fandoms, and I am in such different membership levels in each. For instance, I’m at the Gimme Gimme level in BBC’s Doctor Who (“Okay, if I finish this blog post in the next hour, I can watch two episodes before I go to bed. Hurry up. I need my fix.”) and the I Know It’s Not Canon, But Humor Me level in BBC’s Robin Hood (“Guy, baby, please, just turn good. You know you want to… It’s easy. Just grow a spine, slap the Sheriff of Nottingham and smile.”) and the Dang I Haven’t Watched This In Forever, Why Haven’t I?! level in SciFi’s Stargate Atlantis (“Smiles and fuzzy feelings everywhere! Don’t worry boys, it all turns out well in the end!”).
And there’s the I’m Listening to Elevator Music For Months or Years While I Wait For Awesome Things to Appear level that I’ve hit in both BBC’s Sherlock and Marvel’s Avengers. And the Waiting, Waiting, Waiting, Not Very Patiently, But Waiting level for BBC’s Merlin (“Okay. Only thirty-two days. I can make it. Only thirty-two days. I’m never going to make it!”)
I’m in the oh-so-complicated Wait Wait We’re Getting Another Season? level in the CW’s Supernatural (“Go Sam! You can do it. We’re so close. We’ve almost beat the bad guys forever! Wait… Another season? What are we going to do with that?”)
And I’m in the ever-engrossing Passionately Shouting at the Characters to Get Their Acts Together level for ABC’s Castle and Fox’s Bones (“Castle, Beckett! Quit snogging. Booth, Bones! Quit snogging. Castle, you had wit in the first season. Where did it go? Bones, you were more socially ept in the first season. What happened to that? And I see you, Mr. Medical Examiner! Don’t think you can escape my ire just because you’re a side character. How in the world did you miss the taser burns on that body? Foul!”)
The takeaway from this answer, is, of course, that I watch too much television. I’m looking for a support group.
