OK, I’ve posted. (I promised I would)
So, I used to post A LOT about fandoms, but I used to just list them and not really talk about why I liked them, so that’s what I’m going to do today 🙂
1: Doctor Who: Yes, my blog is basically a pit of Doctor Who ramblings, but I want to talk about WHY it’s like that, so, I used to watch Doctor who a lot when I was younger, and I liked it, no, I wasn’t mad about it but I did enjoy watching it. I grew up with it, and when I really started to enjoy and like watching Doctor Who was in David Tennant’s last few episodes. You can imagine my horror when I just started really enjoying DW and then David Tennant was leaving! I was pretty upset. (No, I wasn’t crying or anything but I didn’t like the look of Matt Smith that much..) I had NO idea that Matt Smith would become my fave doctor and I would still miss him to this very day (not a hater of Peter Capaldi, he is a great doctor!) but anyway, Matt Smith is probably the reason I’m as mad as I am about Doctor who.
Around season 6 I started reading DW books and comics, by the time season 7 came around I read fan fiction and loved DW A LOT!, but I think when Matt Smith left that really upset me and some how made me a bigger Doctor who fan!. Nowadays I could spend my life watching Doctor who (by the way I watch the classics all the time too, you’re not a true fan if you haven’t watched the classics!!) I read fanfic almost everyday, I love DW books, and who doesn’t love the comics??. Oh and Cosplaying DW is my life. If I could say anything to my younger self is that I have A LOT to look forward to. OK, I said I would say why I love DW, I love the idea of travelling through time and space, and the Doctor just makes that better!, along with his companions and enemies *Cough Cough* Missy *cough cough* I just can’t stop watching! 🙂
2: Harry Potter: I’ve always liked watching Harry Potter, I used to watch the first movie a lot when I was little, I don’t think I understood half of it but I liked it all the same.
When I was around 7 I started watching it a lot more and I read the first and second book (don’t know why I didn’t read the others) but I think I liked it because all my friends did and we would play Harry Potter all day (I was always Ginny!). We loved creating our own stories and it was so much fun!, we even made our own wands and played Quidditch!.
Harry Potter did help me make a lot of great friends that I still know today (shout out to them!). A few years passed and I still loved Harry Potter. I read all the other books, then something BIG happened, the last HP movies…Dun Dun DUNNNNN. I watched both of them in the cinema in 3D ! I loved them so so much!. I think it was a few years later or something when I went to the HP studios in London with my friend for her birthday (shout out to her!), that was one of moments I will never forget, it was just super fun and I loved it. Sadly I didn’t get to have butter bear 😦 but I got a Quidditch top, a wand and some every flavour beans.
It’s been a few years since that happened, and well a lot has happened, I’ve re-read the books SO MANY TIMES, I re-watched the movies so many times too. The new movie ( Fantastic beasts) is coming out on my birthday! and I’ve read the new book/script which let me just say is truly amazing and I love it so much, OMG !. I will hopefully see the play one day!.
I think the idea of this Wizarding world, and how JK Rowling writes about the characters and storylines are amazing. The books make you feel like you’re there and I just love it. One of the great things about it too is the fanfiction, games and quizzes which are HP related 🙂
I’m going to end it there because I want to do a few parts of this 🙂
But one thing about both of them is the happiness that comes with being in a fandom and reading what other people have to say about it 🙂
