Merlin (The Story of King Arthur’s camelot With Merlin as The Main Character)-
Oh, Merlin. Merlin, Merlin, Merlin. Where do I begin. I really, really like this show. It’s humorous, sad, and poignant all at once. Gah. Watching this show is literally like asking for emotional damage. But it’s so good. So good. (And I realize I basically told you nothing about this show. Yay for pointless descriptions:)
Divergent (A Dystopian Teen Novel By Veronica Roth)- Imagine a world where you are forced to conform. Either you’re selfless, or brave, or peaceful, or intelligent, or honest. There is no in-between. You are forced to take a test that will decide who you are for the rest of your life. Unless your test results are inconclusive. Unless you are a mix of two or more factions. Unless you’re divergent. Which of course is the deal with our heroine, Tris Prior. (Otherwise there would be no story:) This is an awesome book, which is saying a lot since I normally don’t gravitate towards dystopian novels. It was well worth the read, and I can’t wait for the movie!
Harry Potter (By JK Rowling)- I’m convinced every other person is a part of this fandom. It’s probably one of the most well known fandoms world-wide. It has to do with wizards and stuff. You should check it out.
The Fault In Our Stars (By John Green, bother of Hank Green ((creator of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries)))- There once was a girl named Hazel who met a boy, named Augustas. Hazel and Augustas meet at a cancer support group, and they quickly become friends. They eventually fall in love. Things don’t always go smoothly in relationships however, especially when two people are battling the same enemy-cancer. The idea behind this story is wonderful, and although I may not have fallen in love with how this book is written, I have definitely fallen in love with the characters.
The Princess Bride (Based on the book by William Goldman)- You knew it was going to come to this, didn’t you? Well, I may as well tell you the truth and spill the beans now. Yes, I am home schooled. And Yes. This is one of my FAVORITE MOVIES EVER. I cannot tell you how many times I have watched this movie and never get tired of watching Princess Buttercup roll down the giant hill after Westley. It’s a brilliant timeless, movie, and although it pokes fun at generic fairytales, by the end it has somehow convinced you that true love does exist.
Anne of Green Gables (Based on the book by LM Montgomery)- We have this tradition at my house. Every time we bake pumpkin bread (pumpkin bread, not banana bread mind you) we somehow always end up curling up on the sofa by the TV and popping in Anne of Green Gables. I’m not sure how this started, but I definitely don’t want it to end. This movie has some magic to it (Anne’s always getting herself into scrapes and what not, Gilbert is constantly making fun of her) and I think that’s what has captured the imagination of so many people. It’s really a great family movie, and one I think everybody should see at least once in their lifetime.
Green Gables Fables (A Modern Vlog Style Retelling of Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery)- Since the Lizzie Bennet Diaries came out in 2012, many aspiring filmmakers have latched on to the idea of taking a book and retelling the story through vlogs on youtube. I think this is a great idea, and one I think would be loads of fun to do myself (Maybe for a summer project or something).This particular series has not progressed far, but I am looking forward to seeing more from it soon. It has been very fun and light hearted thus far. (Thus is such a fantabulous word.) It is available on youtube under the username: AnneWithAnE.
The Autobiography of Jane Eyre (A Modern Vlog Style Retelling of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte)- I bet you are extremely tired of the amount of vlogs I watch on a weekly basis. But they are just so much fun! This particular series is great! It incorporates all the characters, and has a very realistic feel, even more so then LBD. Jane carries her camera around with her, just like a real vlogger, and I have been loving the series. The only complaint I have at the moment, is the choice to make one of the character gay in order to “add a modern flare”. Seriously, when are directors going to catch on and realize that doing that to a beloved character in order to modernize a web show doesn’t do anything for the show in the least? It’s really beginning to annoy me. I believe that “rather long and drawn out blog post” I mentioned earlier will be coming very soon, so stay tuned:)
THE LEGOLAS (and Lord of the Rings) FANDOM- Is there such a thing as a “Legolas” fandom? If there is, I’m probably the president of it. I have loved this character from Lord of the Rings for as long as I can remember. He’s. just. so. cool. (And you’re probably looking at you’re computer screen thinking I’m the biggest nerd on the planet. oh well. #NOSHAME) I have some friends who say that they liked legolas, but then they switched from loving Legolas to loving Aragorn. Well, Aragorn, as much as I ship you and Arwen (ya’ll are just to adorbs), I do not think I will ever be able to make the switch. EVER. My friends and I even came up with this name for the look Legolas has in most of the still pictures. We like to call it the “Pondering” expression.
See?! Doesn’t it look like he’s staring off into the sunset, pondering vast and complex thoughts? No? Just me? Okay. Moving right along.
Le Miserables- Of course we couldn’t forget Le Mis! (Does anyone know how you actually pronounce Le Miserables? That was one of my fears when I first went to the movie theatre to watch this movie. That I wouldn’t be able to pronounce it correctly and the ticket person would just stand there and look at me like: O_O. Anyway. ) I LOVE this movie! I cried AT LEAST 3 times, and by the end I was crying so hard people were turning around in their seats to see what on each was wrong with me but I didn’t care because my insides were all like asdhflsdbfdkjbgadjghjfnaekjhfsarkgjerjkgbeagkjrgbreakgbajkrsngjgn. It was an awesome experience.
And that’s it for now! I plan to greatly expand this page in the future as I become a part of more fandoms during the summer time! (When I actually have time to read what I want to read instead of writing a blog about my fandoms to avoid working on my debate project. #studyinghabits). Anyways, hope you all found that interesting, and I will, um…Yeah. I don’t have a sign off. So, as Lizzie Bennet once said, “PEACE!”.
