Fantasy Fandom Tag

The tag was created by Madeline J. Rose and I was tagged by Jenelle Schmidt. Thank you so much, Jenelle!

The Rules

  1. Include the graphic somewhere in your post!
  2. Answer the questions!
  3. Tag two fangirls (or boys, I suppose!)

(If you don’t know what a fandom is, it’s basically a group of fans of a particular thing, like Star Wars or Harry Potter.)

The Questions

What’s the first fandom you remember becoming a part of?

I said Disney and fairy tales were technically my first fandom in my last post, but I don’t remember when I first joined. I’m a Disney baby, my earliest memories already include Disney. So, the first one I actually remember joining is Kingdom Hearts. I spoke a LOT about it in my last post, so I won’t repeat myself. But this truly is my longest known fandom, and the one dearest to my heart.

What’s the newest fandom you’ve come to enjoy?

The newest would be The Ascendance Series. *waves at Issabelle* I’m going to be honest, I did call the twist ending by chapter two, but I’m now a good ways into book two and really enjoying it. Sage is quite a character. *grins*

What’s a fandom guaranteed to give you feels?

Oh, goodness, there’s actually several fandoms that give me all the feels. Narnia, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit (I’ll be honest, I’ve watched the movies more than I’ve read the books. *hides*), Star Wars, The Wingfeather Saga, and I’ll stop listing them before I just go ahead and list most every fandom I’m in. However, the fandom that gives me the most feels is Kingdom Hearts. *wonders how many of these questions will be answered with Kingdom Hearts*

What’s a guilty pleasure fandom of yours?

I think I’ll answer this question like Jenelle did with the fandom you might not think I’d be part of. I think something y’all might not know I like is Transformers. I’ve never watched the live-action movies, but I grew up watching the Armada, Energon, and Cybertron series (all three are connected, but I have issues with how little Cybertron connects to the first two…). I also really love Transformers Prime. The three above are a bit cheesy and like, come on, 13-year-olds are saving the universe from Unicron (not to be confused with a unicorn. XD) and everyone just… lets… them? And Kicker, the main character from Energon has major, I mean MAJOR, attitude problems throughout the whole series and it’s viewed as “cool”. So yeah, there are some issues with them that I will admit, but still, it’s a fandom very dear to me because of all the memories I have of watching it with my older brother and sister when we were kids. Oh! There’s also Transformers Animated, that one was kind of weird? But my little brother and I enjoyed it. And there’s the original Transformers series that I haven’t watched all of it yet, and also the sequel series to Prime that I can’t for the life of me remember the title of right now…

What’s the weirdest fandom you’ve heard of/are a part of?

Ha! Some of y’all would probably point to the above and say that one. XD There was also a time I was part of the Ben 10 fandom before they went even weirder, I still like the first three series though. The weirdest fandom I’m part of would probably be A Series of Unfortunate Events. I love that series, but it is SO weird! In a good way! I’m actually due for a reread soon. *grins* Another weird one would probably be Phineas and Ferb, but I love it so much! Oh! And there’s also Milo Murphy, which is made by the creators of Phineas and Ferb and set in the same world, same city, er, tri-state area. I’m also going to admit right now that some of KH gets pretty weird too, but I love it. *happy sigh*

Favorite popular/widely-known fandom?

Hard one. I like several popular ones. This is a serious tie between Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, Star Wars, and Marvel.

Favorite bookish fandom?

The Lunar Chronicles!!! The Inkworld series! (Inkheart/spell/death by Cornelia Funke) The Inheritance Cycle! King’s Warrior! These are a tie because TLC is my newest bookish obsession, Inkworld is something I’ve loved for years, and THC and King’s Warrior because they both helped set me on my writing path.

What do you consider your ‘homebase’, a fandom you can always come back to?

Kingdom Hearts!!! You probably saw that coming. XD KH will always be my ultimate fandom, especially since Disney is known for acquiring everyone else and eventually all my fandoms will be in KH (like Marvel, Star Wars, and such XD). But on a more serious note, Kingdome Hearts feels like home, it’s my go-to comfort fandom.

What’s a fandom you know all about…but aren’t actually into it?

Hmmm… I need to think on this… Ah! The Lego Movie. I’ll admit that it’s kind of cute and funny, and my siblings love it to pieces, but I just… don’t? I don’t really want to talk bad about a fandom other people love that I just find mildly annoying, so we’ll just move on.

Which fandom has the best characters?

Kingdom Hearts! But Lunar Chronicles also has amazing characters. Aargh! I can’t pick! Sentimentality and loyalty say KH (which does indeed have AMAZING characters) but TLC has such awesome characters too. Alright, book-wise is TLC, video game-wise is KH. 😉

Name your all-time favorite ship.

The Black Pearl! XD

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist!

My all-time favorite ship is Sora and Kairi, they were also my first ship too. ^_^

What’s a fandom you’re curious about joining?

Avatar: The Last Airbender! BBC Merlin! Studio Ghibli! Doctor Who! Once Upon a Time! Keepers of the Lost City! Okay, I’ll stop here, there are sooo many fandoms I keep meaning to get around to.

Oookay, I have no idea who’s already done this tag, so I’m going to tag people and if you’ve done it before, feel free to skip or do it again! 😀 Also, the only fanboy I know is my brother, so I’m tagging two extra fangirls. (Can someone please direct me to the elusive, mythological creature known as the fanboy?)

Tara Savanna @ Tower in the Plains // Madi @ Madi’s Musings // Nicole Dust @ Legend of a Writer // Ribbon Ash @ Virtual Paper // And anyone who wants to do it! I support blog tag thieves. 😉

(For those who wondered, half of the question were answered with Kingdom Hearts… Kingdom Hearts is just… it’s my thing, alright? If I could only keep one single fandom, it would be KH. ❤

I hope you enjoyed reading more about my fandoms! Do you have a ‘homebase’ fandom? What’s a fandom you’re curious about joining?

Tell me in the comments!

  1. Me? You tagged ME? I’m so honored!!!! Thank you!
    Your answers are great! I must admit I haven’t heard of most of the fandoms, but I do know about LOTR and The Hobbit! Yes!! They are the best! I never saw the draw of the Lego movie. I suppose it had a good message, but it was soooo annoying and that song – ugh. About as annoying as Frozen (unpopular opinion, I know). I’m picky on Star Wars…. don’t care much for the actual movies. I do, however, love the Clone Wars (Obi Wan’s sass is the BEST) and Rebels (Chopper and Zeb are #1 and Kanan and Hera…my heart’s breaking about a certain episode that ended THAT). The only movie I absolutely loved is Rogue One! My dad and I saw it at the theater and I knew from the second K2 slammed Jyn onto the ground and said, “You’re being rescued. Please do not resist” (or something like that) that we had to get it. And get it we did. And watch it constantly we have.
    Fun post! And thanks for tagging me!

    1. You’re SO welcome!!! ^_^

      Awww, thank you so much! Yeah, I probably have several rather obscure fandoms. XD *high-fives* LOTR and The Hobbit FOREVER!!! I simply adore them! ^_^ Hehe, yay? I’m not alone in not liking the Lego movie! XD That song drives me completely bonkers! It’s such an earwig and my siblings just LOVE to sing it on purpose to annoy me… -_- XD *gasp* You don’t like Frozen? Well, that’s okay. To each her own, and all that. 😉 I love the Clone Wars! (Yesss, Obi Wan’s sass!!! XD) Eeee! Rebels! ❤ (Oh, just yes to all of this! I didn't want to believe it, I kept hoping something would happen that would undo it… *sobs*) Oh, lol! Well, I'm glad you love Rogue One! That's the one movie I enjoyed right up to the ending. XD I just can't with that ending, though… *sobbing* But yes! Other than the ending I loved it! Especially the whole prisoners to the prison to be imprisoned scene. XDDD

      Thanks! And you're welcome! I can't wait to read your post! ^_^

  2. Awesome post!! Fandoms are a huge part of my life!! The first fandom I was a part of would be Harry Potter. And you should definitely join the Keeper of the Lost Cities fandom!!

  3. Oh my goodness, we both posted this tag today! FOREVER TWINS. And EEEEEE!!! I loved seeing your answers! All the Kingdom Hearts love just makes my heart happy. I’ve felt so alone in this fandom until meeting you. ❤

    I NEED to read The Ascendance Series! I've heard so, sooo many good things about it. It's just shameful I haven't tried those books yet.

    I don't think I did know you like Transformers. SO FUN! I've shamefully only ever seen a couple of the newer movies, and that's like…my extent of Transformer knowledge. *shakes head at self* I know it's really special to a ton of people though, and I think that's really great. ^_^

    SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS. I just finished book #10 and just ALKJSDJLKJF. These books are blowing my mind! Lemony Snicket has the most unique writing voice ever, and I adore it to pieces. I definitely hope to devour the last books SOON. I am officially addicted! And oooh, PHINEAS AND FERB. I love that show! 😀

    The Black Pearl as your favorite ship. BWAHAHAHA! Perfect. XD But really SORA AND KAIRI THE PRECIOUS BABIES. <333

    I need to join the Keepers of the Lost City fandom too. Another book series I've been recommended so much. But all those other fandoms you listed just YES. YOU NEED TO WATCH THEM ALL. Some of my favorite of all time right there!

    This was so much fun to read! I just love how many fandoms we share! ^_^

    1. That is so cool!!! TWINSIES! XD Thank you so much!!! And just yes! I can’t talk about fandoms without bringing up Kingdom Hearts! ^_^ Awww, same! ❤ I had my siblings, of course, but there's just something special about sharing a fandom with a friend. *glomps*

      Hehe, yes you do!

      Lol, yeah, I don't think I've talked about it yet, but it's one I really love. ^_^ Yeah, the live-action movies are very different than the series shows, from what I've heard. It is really special! I received the trilogy series I discussed for Christmas 2019 and I cried so many happy tears because of all the nostalgia I have for them. ^_^

      AAAAHHHHH!!!! You are SO close to the end!!! I absolutely ADORE Lemony Snicket's writing voice! Those books are amazing and just AJHDKDGDAJK;!!!! We'll have to chat when you finish the last book! ^_^ I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the ending! Eeeee!!! You're a Phineas and Ferb fan!? I don't think I knew that yet. My siblings and I are obsessed with it! 😀

      XDDD Well, it is a "ship". *nods seriously* YES!!! THE PRECIOUS BABIES!!! <333

      Hey! Maybe we can buddy read them at some point? I'm pretty sure my library has them. I was thinking of you when I wrote down most of those fandoms I need to join. ^_^ One day I will join all of them! 😀

      Thank you!! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed my fangirling! Awww, same, girl! Fandoms are so much more fun when shared with friends! ^_^

  4. I really need to read the Wingfeather Saga. I’ve heard so many good things about it! You need to join the Avatar the Last Airbender fandom. It’s my favorite cartoon of all time!

    1. The Wingfeather Saga was SOOO good! You should definitely read it! ^_^ Yes I dooo! I keep saying I will and then forget to actually get ahold of some copies. XD There. Just put it on hold at my library. ^_^ I can’t wait to join this fandom! 😀

  5. *whispers* I’ve seen The Lord of the Rings movies more than I’ve read the books too *hides with you* (They’re really good movies though??)
    I love A Series of Unfortunate Events! Sunny Baudelaire alone is enough to make the whole series worth reading ❤ Have you seen the Netflix show?
    Yesss, you should watch Avatar the Last Airbender. It’s truly wonderful. I know that’s what everyone says, but…it’s true XD

    1. *whispers back* Yay! I’m not alone! *schooches over to make more room* XD (Ugh, YES! I ADORE the movies!) Eeek! Another Unfortunate Events fan!!! *glomps you* Sunny is amazing!!! ❤ Sadly no, I don't have Netflix… 😦

      Practically everyone I've met online loves that show, so yeah, either I need to watch it, or barricade myself from the fangirl mob. XD I actually just put it on hold at my library, so I'll be watching it soon! *squeals* ^_^

  6. I’m gonna have to go with The Millennium Falcon being my favorite “ship” 😀 hahahahaha that was classic and took me by surprise. I love it!!!

    Okay, you and Stine are making me wish I played video games, all the Kingdom Hearts love! Sounds very intriguing. Maybe there will be a show or a movie or something someday. So many video games have such good stories… oh well.

    I LOVE THE LUNAR CHRONICLES TOO!!! I am kicking myself for not including them in my own posts… I really need to buy the series at some point.

    Oh goodness! Someone else who’s familiar with Transformers Prime!!! I love that show! And the sequel show (Robots in Disguise)! Loved those! I also really enjoyed Rescue Bots… which is definitely geared to a younger audience, but I thought it was cute and fun. The movies… meh. I didn’t really like any of them that well. I really also enjoy Beast Wars and Beast Machines, which is sort of tangentially related. 🙂

    Series of Unfortunate Events is soooooo fun.

    Really enjoyed reading your answers!

    1. *grins* The Millennium Falcon is an awesome ship! 😀 Thanks! I couldn’t help it. XD

      (I had to think for a sec who Stine was. XD) It is our unofficial mission to bring more people into this fandom. *grins* Oh, I think you would love Kingdom Hearts! There are some YouTube videos out there with just the “Movie” parts of the game, if you’re interested? It would be cool if there was an actual show or movie one day! There are so many video games with amazing stories, like Legend of Zelda (Breath of the Wild and Twilight Princess are my faves) Ratchet and Clank, and some Star Wars games.

      AAAAHHHH!!!! THEY ARE SOOOOO GOOD!!!! Aww, maybe next year you can have a space themed prompt? XD I wish I owned the series too! I had to borrow them all from the library. XD

      *glomps you* You’re a Transformers Prime fan!!! I love it so much! Eeee! Yay! (Haha, riiiight. Thanks!) I haven’t watched all of Robots in Disguise yet, but I’m loving it. ^_^ Hehe, I didn’t watch that one, but I did catch glimpses and it did seem really cute and fun. 😉 Yeah, I’m not sure I’m going to watch the movies, except for Bumblebee, I am interested in his movie. *gasps* How did I forget to mention Beast Wars and Beast Machines! My older brother, sister, and I loved those as well!! I am so happy you’re a fan too! ^_^ I watched those two when I was little and don’t quite remember them as vividly as Armada, Energon, and Cybertron.

      Yes it issss!! It was so weird, yet all the twists were amazing!

      Awww, I’m so thrilled you did! Thank you so much for tagging me! ❤

      1. Yeah… I… totally forgot the apostrophe. Also, I’ve never called Christine “‘Stine” before, so I’m not sure exactly why that happened… I think my fingers got carried away with me in relishing the glorious fandom conversation. haha!

  7. Thank you so much for tagging me!!!! ❤ I'm so honored that you keep on tagging me. 🙂
    Oh, can I recommend you watching Once Upon a Time first in that long list of to-be-fandoms? 😀
    I've heard of transformers, but I have only watched Bumblebee, which was actually a good movie. You will probably enjoy that one.

    1. You’re welcome!!! ❤ I kept forgetting to actually go tell people I tagged them. Sorry.
      Hehe, yes, yes you may. 😉 My sisters and I are actually discussing watching the series at some point. 😀 Hopefully it will be soon! *squeals* Oooh, you watched Bumblebee? Cool! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to watching it. ^_^
