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 Random Fanfic Fandoms

Quiz: Which Cult Film Are You?

Quiz: Which Cult Film Are You?

Answer: You are Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory!
cult-film_wonka_st-400x210
You’re a visionary and an idealist. You have grandiose dreams of making the world a better place. But in order to do so, you have to test who will be part of your team… and if they don’t have what it takes… OUT!

Thoughts: I have never been and will never be called an idealist. I do have dreams and goals, but they’re only necessary to keep me from being lazy. I definitely fit the second half of the description, though. And I’m pretty crazy, just like this film. I’ve been known to break into song and binge on candy, so that’s pretty accurate.

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:

Top Ten: Fandom Creations at Brickfair

Okay, once again I fail at a Top Ten list and had to go Top Fifteen. I don’t see anyone complaining. There is so much fannish goodness that comes out of somewhere like a LEGO fan convention and so much creativity. I couldn’t help but admire more than just ten! Despite being numbered, these are really in no particular order. Click on the photos for bigger versions, please! These previews are somewhat blurry and don’t do them justice. Seriously, click on them for a proper look. Trust me. Also, the titles are my own in most but not all cases, because I have to call them something and not all the MOC cards came out in my photos.

Quiz: Which Star Wars Character Are You?

Quiz: Which Star Wars Character Are You?

Answer:
HanSolo

Thoughts: Huh. Interesting. Not in a million years would I have ever seen comparisons between Han Solo and me. I think I’m more like pretty much any other character, actually. Okay, yes, I can be sharp, resourceful, and independent at times. I’m good at heart and, okay, I like furry friends. But… I think that’s it. I’d never be a smuggler or shady or even remotely scoundrel-like! What a strange result. I was secretly hoping for R2-D2.

Quiz: Which Harry Potter Guy Should You Date?

Quiz: Which Harry Potter Guy Should You Date?

Answer: Ron Weasley
Your perfect “HP” guy is the cute, loyal, and funny redhead that everyone knows and loves — Ron Weasley! Even if he’s a little messy and gets himself into trouble sometimes, he’s an awesome Quidditch player and an even better friend. You definitely need to learn to deal with his crazy family — let’s be honest, five older brothers and a younger sister can get pretty hectic! On the plus side, you’ll totally feel secure with him — he’s always acting brave to protect the people he loves. Not to mention you can always count on him to make you laugh! But beware, it might take a little time for him to make the first move — after all, he didn’t even ask Hermione to the Yule Ball! To find your real-life Ron, look past the most popular guy in school and check out his loyal best friend! Yeah, that guy who was with the class hottie through thick and thin — and even before he was hot! A guy that loyal will be the perfect match for you!

Thoughts: I am fairly certain I’ve filled this quiz out before, but I can’t remember what I got that time. So… yeah. Ron. Cute and loyal… I could see that. I could handle this. And, hey, who doesn’t want to be a Weasley? :-)

Top Ten: Things I Liked About the 2nd Hobbit Movie

the-hobbit-desolation-of-smaug-movie-posterI spent last week ranting about what didn’t work for me in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. And while it is still probably my least favorite of all the movies in this current franchise, there was definitely things I loved about it. So to balance out my rantings from last week, here are some of the things I loved.

Top Ten: Things I Disliked About the 2nd Hobbit Movie

the-hobbit-desolation-of-smaug-movie-poster As a Lord of the Rings fangirl, I loved The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. But it is my least favorite of all the movies. The first Hobbit movie was so much better in my eyes, even though it gives my friends fits when I say so. I saw the movie twice in theaters and still didn’t feel like I could write a proper review. I felt so let down during the movie. It’s full of great moments I loved (see next week’s list), but my overall feeling each time I walked out of theaters was disappointment. So I waited until I could watch it again at home before writing up a list.
