12 Days of Fandom Ornaments: #8

My Christmas tree is a mix of ornaments from my childhood and ones from later on in my life. Many of them are related to my favorite fandoms, naturally. I thought I would showcase one every other day in December in a 12 Days of Fandom Ornaments series.

Day 8: Snikt!


Made for me for a swap, this features Marvel comics, especially one of my favorite characters: Wolverine. It, also, looks fantastic when backlit. I love that each side is a continuation of the panels, like it’s a complete picture.


Top Ten: A Fandom Present Wishlist

With the holidays approaching, I thought it was time for another themed list. Here are my fandom-related requests, most of which are not available in stores, so it’s definitely up to Santa to make some of these happen for me.

Top Ten: Fandom Things I Wish I Could Make

Sometimes I will pin things on my Ideas & Inspirations Pinterest board with every intention of trying my hand at that project or something similar to it at least. But every so often I come across a craft that is so amazing I could never hope to duplicate it.

Top Ten: Characters I Sort Into Hufflepuff

hufflepuff_crestPeople who know me know I like to sort people I meet into Hogwarts Houses. I can’t do it with all people, but some people give off pretty strong indicators. I do the same thing with fictional characters.

I thought it would be fun to come up with 10 characters I sort into particular houses. And, as I’m a Hufflepuff, I thought I’d start with my favorite house. I thus give you ten characters I usually sort into Hufflepuff:

Craft: Captain America ATC

As tomorrow is July 4th here in the US, I thought this was an appropriate craft post. This is my Captain America ATC:

Quiz: Which Marvel Movie Villain Are You?

Quiz: Which Marvel Movie Villain Are you?


Thoughts: Well, this I did not expect! I don’t quite seem my resemblance, to be honest. I do like a good plan, sure. And I certainly can be moody and misunderstood. So all right. But I think the flaw in this quiz is my own; I don’t consider myself a villain at all, and I lack ambition. But, hey, I wouldn’t mind having Loki’s powers… or his brother for that matter…

Recent Marathons (More 50-Word Reviews)


Batman Beyond: Loved the Neo-Gotham future setting and what has happened to Bruce over the years. I liked how Terry slowly found his way into the role. I liked how the various players like Barbara and the Jokerz (plural) show up. Really liked Bruce’s role, coaching and understanding from afar.


Longmire (Season 2): It’s been a while since I saw Season 1, but I fell right back into it without problem. Love the acting; I watch for the characters and unique cases. Great drama and angsty storylines definitely kept my attention this time around. Definitely looking forward to Season 3.


Ultimate Spider-Man: I’ve always liked Spider-Man, but this month I fell in love with him. This series skewed a little young, but I still enjoyed it. Breaking the 4th wall let Peter’s character shine through. I adored getting to know his team. And I can always use more Agent Coulson.


Beauty & the Beast (Season 1): Interesting modern twists. I enjoyed the protected identity aspect, but the love/passion angle got tiresome. I got a kick out of it when the plotline forced Vincent (the beast) underground into tunnels. I couldn’t take my eyes off Catherine in every scene; she’s gorgeous.


Psych (Season 7): I’ve been waiting forever to get caught up on Psych. The season was highly enjoyable, though it started off surprisingly rocky and tough for my favorite pairings. A great series of cases with plenty of great cultural references thrown in, including Highlander! The musical episode was epic.


A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories: How did I not know this series existed? Between Daniel Radcliffe as the young doctor and Jon Hamm as the older version, there’s fantastic acting talent. Shocking but well-done humor and drama in these stories set around the time of the Russian Revolution.


Derek: At times, I wasn’t sure how to feel about this series. I can’t help but love Derek as a character, though Ricky’s choice to portray him is interesting. Some of the other characters are harder to love, but even they have their moments. It was worth giving a try.


Young Justice: I am a Marvel girl and know nothing of the Justice league, let alone this spin-off band. But a group of “sidekicks” kicking butt? Irresistible! I love that they all had secrets and problems but functioned as a great team, though reluctantly at times… and luctantly at others.

Top Ten: Marvel Knowledge Holes

marvellogothingDespite the fact that Batman is my favorite superhero, I’m definitely a Marvel girl. Marvel characters are my kind of people. Marvel stories are ones I can relate to. Marvel’s world is my world.

However, I get my Marvel where I can– various movies, comics and graphic novels I come across at used book sales or on deep discount at comic book stores, various cartoon TV show versions, various graphic novels I find at the library. Because of this, I don’t have a very good mental picture of the various Marvel universes or their timelines. Everything is all mixed up in my brain.

I know just enough to know that I don’t know very much. I have big gaps in my knowledge that sometimes cause me “oohhhh!” light bulb moments of realization when those gaps get filled in… and sometimes cause me massive amounts of confusion and guilt. I figured this might be a great source of laughter for those of you with more knowledge than me (which is practically everyone) and a way for me to come clean. Feel free to try to explain things to me. But, more helpful, would be a list of comics/episodes that would let me properly fill in the gaps. I’ve tried Wikis and they leave me with more questions than answers.
