Top Ten: Fandom Couples (Het Version)

I just realized I forgot to write a Top Ten list this week! Oops! Better late than never. The topic of this list was suggested by one of my blog followers (thanks so much).

Top Ten: Things That Harry Potter Has Given Me

harry_potter_paperback_setHarry Potter is one of my main fandoms, and its books and movies have given me entertainment, wisdom and concepts worthy of great thought, and all sorts of emotional rewards (not even counting great fanfiction). But there are some other, unexpected things that have come with the stories.

Craft: Don’t Panic

Made for a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy swap package that I angeled, here’s a bookmark and a stuffie of the green guy:

The fingers and teeth were the hardest part–so intricate and small. But I think it turned out all right in the end.

Thoughts: I don’t know him well enough to know how accurate this comparison is, but I like the guy, so I’m okay with it. I certainly wouldn’t mind Bilbo writing a song about me ;-) Info: http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/E%C3%A4rendil

Top Ten: Fandom Songs I Can’t Listen To in the Car

My friends IRL know that I’m a crier. I cry not just at sad movies but at their movie trailers before the sad movies are even out.

There are also some fandom songs I cannot listen to without at least tearing up. I learned the hard way that I had to uncheck these songs in iTunes at work (I’ve had coworkers walk in on me as I was bawling) and I cannot listen to them while driving (twice I’ve had to pull over to the side of the road because I was crying too hard to drive/see). But these are also songs I love so very dearly. In fact, it was easy to come up with this list in just a few minutes because some of these are among my favorite fandom songs ever written. I just… can’t listen to them while driving.

Note: There’s a MoM song that belongs on this list, but given the recent… yeah… I’m choosing to leave that song off. That’s all right. There are enough Snidget songs to make up the difference ;-)

Additional Note/Warning: Massive spoilers for Harry Potter, Supernatural through season 7, His Dark Materials series, Torchwood Children of Earth, and the first Hunger Games novel/movie

Quiz: How Big Of A Harry Potter Fan Are You Actually?

Repost. Sorry. My scheduling abilities are miserable, apparently.

Quiz: How Big Of A Harry Potter Fan Are You Actually?

Answer: 76/100
HPFanQuiz

Thoughts: I’m not entirely sure why I bothered filling this out, because I know I’m a big fan and it only makes me sad that I can’t check every box on this list. I WAS especially thrilled to be able to check off EVERYTHING from 67-71. I love that I’ve been able to visit all those places. It was a little sad that I got into HP as an adult so I couldn’t check off a short series about growing up with the books. But I made up for that in other places.

Fandom Spotlight Day 30: Harry Potter

For the month of April, I’m breaking out of my usual “format” and showcasing one of my favorite fandoms a day, so I will have shiny things to make me smile every day of my birthday month. When I sat down to write the list of my top 30 fandoms, I found the task terribly hard. How do I choose just 30? My apologies to all my beloved fandoms left off the list. I’m using random.org to determine what fandom gets what day.
