Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fandoms I Belong To

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Fandom Freebie — top ten fandoms I’m in, 10 reasons X fandom is the best, must have merchandise for x fandom, etc. I’m taking Freebie literally here and am branching out from books since most of my fandoms are in TV and music.  I don’t think we used the word fandom to describe things we were passionate about when I was growing up, but whatever we called it, I’ve definitely done my fair share of fangirling over the years.  Here are some of my favorites…

Top Ten Fandoms I Belong To

1. STAR WARS

I think this was my first fandom love.  I fell in love with Star Wars back in the 1970s and early 1980s when the original trilogy films were released in theaters. I just couldn’t get enough of these characters. Chewy and Yoda were always my favorites, but I was also a diehard Han/Leia shipper and a huge Carrie Fisher fan.  I’m still devastated that we lost her last year :(.

* * * * *

2. CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION

The CSI fandom is probably the one I’ve been most active in online.  I never wrote fanfiction or anything like that, but I definitely remember reading my fair share of it and shipping quite a few different pairings on the show over the years.  I didn’t particularly care for any of the spin off shows though; I was Las Vegas all the way!

* * * * *

3. HARRY POTTER

Is there anyone who doesn’t love this fandom?  Doesn’t matter if it’s the books or the films, I will fangirl Harry Potter all day long.  I never get tired of talking about it!

* * * * *

4. THE 100

The 100 is a relatively new fandom for me. I haven’t read the books, but last year I binge watched all of the season on Netflix and became pretty obsessed with the show.  I’m mainly obsessed with it because it’s always an adrenaline rush, but I also do have a pairing that I ship, Kane and Abby (or Kabby as the cool kids call it).

* * * * *

5. ONCE UPON A TIME

I was so enamored with the show during its first few seasons. Just like I love fairy tale retellings in the book world, I loved the new twists that this show was giving to classic fairy tales. I’m a little less passionate about it these days though because they killed off one of my favorite characters, Robin Hood.

* * * * *

6. GILMORE GIRLS

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this several times on my blog since Rory is such a huge bookworm, but I adore Gilmore Girls. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve binge watched the series on Netflix and I loved the revival series that came out late last year and am hoping for even more from the Gilmores in the future.

* * * * *

7. ALL THINGS DISNEY

Let’s just say I’ve never met a Disney movie or a Disney character that I didn’t love and leave it at that.  This one is a lifelong fandom. I’m just as passionate about Disney now as I was when I was a small child.

* * * * *

8. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

I’ve had a mad crush on Bruce Springsteen since I was about 13 when Born in the U.S.A. came out.  He’s talented as hell, puts on an incredible show, and I also love that he’s not afraid to speak his mind on any subject that he feels passionately about.

* * * * *

9. BON JOVI

I loved them when they were a big 80’s hair band and I still love them today.  Like Springsteen, they put on such an incredibly entertaining show and let’s face it, Jon Bon Jovi has always been easy on the eyes.  He’s even hotter today than he was back in the 80s too.

* * * * *

10. BOOK FANDOM!

So yeah, we’re a fandom too, right?  I couldn’t narrow my love of books down to any particular fandom, so I’m just going to say I fangirl over ALL the books and love ALL of my fellow book bloggers.

* * * * *

Question:  So there’s my 10.  What fandoms do you belong to? Do we have any in common?

    I am definitely a Disney fanatic and have been my whole life. I love to watch the movies when they’re on TV, and I would go to Disney World every year if I could!

      OMG, if I could go to Disney World every year, that would be pure heaven! I’m so glad I’m not the only one who still loves to watch the movies. I stop whenever I see one on TV and was also thrilled to see that Netflix now has a lot of them too.

    Star Wars definitely. Love that pic! And yay for The 100!! I agree that show is always so fast moving. And I have a certain fondness for 80’s bands too… 🙂

      The 100 is one of the most addicting shows I’ve watched in years. I remember when I I binge watched it, I literally sat there for hours on end and just couldn’t tear myself away from it.

    Love your list! And we even share some of the same loves. Like, The 100! I love that show so much. It’s one of my all time favorites. I love Kane and Abby too, but my favorite ship is Bellamy and Clarke. Though I’m not sure it’ll ever happen.

    I also watch OUAT, and it hasn’t been the same since we lost Robin. Robin and Regina were so awesome together.

    I also love Gilmore Girls, and I came to it late. I’ve watched it multiple times now.

      Yay, another fan of The 100! Isn’t that show amazing? When I was binge watching it on Netflix, I swear I was glued to my chair for days because I just could not make myself stop watching. Oh yes, I ship Bellamy and Clarke too. I also shipped Octavia and Lincoln, but 🙁

    Fantastic list!!

    Harry Potter and Star Wars are the BEST. Loved seeing Bon Jovie❤️ And absolutely agree with BOOKS!!!!!! CSI was so huge 10 years ago, so many spin offs – it was cult!!!

      Thanks! Harry Potter and Stars definitely are the best. I love how they appeal to both males and females and to people of all ages. Such a rare quality. 🙂

    This is such a great list! Disney, OUAT, Gilmore Girls, Harry Potter – I am totally with you for all of those! It too me ages before I even realized what constituted being part of a ‘fandom,’ but then one day I finally understood that you basically just had to be passionate about something and it all fell into place. 🙂 Great list!

      Yeah, killing off Robin really dampened my enthusiasm for the show. I also miss characters like Red and Mulan too. But, man, those first few seasons were so incredible!

    Mmm, Star Wars and Bon Jovi <3 I love both! I stuck with bookish fandoms this week, so the only one also on my list is Harry Potter. Seems to be a lot of Potter love going on today for this prompt!

    Man, I should have done a list like this. HP, Gilmore Girls, Disney! I wrote my 10 Reasons I Love Gilmore Girls… totally a worthy Fandom post, but now I wish I had written about all my Fandom.

    OMG YES to so many of these. I completely forgot about my love for Gilmore Girls and i don’t even know how. I only found it last year and literally watched all the seasons back to back in under a month! How did I miss this??? Great picks though!

      Haha, I did the exact same thing when I first discovered Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I couldn’t believe how fast I flew through those seven seasons. 🙂

    I am so on board with half of these!! I really need to get back to Once Upon a Time too. I stopped after the Merida storyline and just never got back into it. I need more Hook in my life though! Great list 😀

    Here are my Top Ten!

    So many amazing fandoms! Harry Potter’s on my list as well, but I LOVE The 100, Gilmore Girls, Star Wars and Disney as well! 🙂 I also love Once Upon A Time, but the last season has been a bit disappointing for me

      The last season of OUAT has been disappointing for me too. It just feels like the writers have lost their way. Really hoping they get back on course before I completely give up on the show.
