Missed last weeks Fandom Friday. Womp, womp. But this one is so up my alley, I couldn’t stay away. I’m a little short on time, but here are the top 5 characters with my favorite fictional fashion!

1. Buffy Summers, Obvi. – Who else could kick major vampire ass in this outfit?

2. Clarissa Darling – SO nostalgic! Lol.

3. Charlie Bradbury – closest to my own personal style

4. Lemon Breeland/ Zoe Hart – style I obsess over

5. Felicity Smoak – girl crush!

5 Fandom Friday: Most Binge-Worthy Shows

I’ve always been a binge-watcher. Even before instant streaming was a thing, I’d always wait until a season of a TV show came out on DVD or iTunes, rent/buy them, and spend an entire weekend curled up in the Lay-Z-Boy in my parents’ basement to power through the whole thing. Most notably, I did this with Grey’s Anatomy in high school.

Now that we have so much TV content available at our fingertips, this list could really go on forever.  Buckle up!

My Top 5 Most Binge-Worthy TV Shows:

5. Orange is the New Black

There’s really nothing that needs said about this series – it is FANTASTIC. Exciting, shocking, and completely different from anything else on TV. If you haven’t watched it, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Unless, of course, you have a problem with language & violence, in which case, steer clear.

4. Supernatural

Definitely one of my favorite shows of all time. I’ve been watching since 2009, when a guy I was dating had it on at his house and I was like “OMG WHAT IS THIS MAGICAL TV SHOW?”. I will always remember the episode – Season 4, episode 16, “On the Head of A Pin”. If you’re a SPN fan, you know how amazing that episode was. I immediately went to the video store & rented seasons 1-3 and finished them in about a week with my roommate.

3. Daredevil

Just finished this a couple weeks ago & it DEFINITELY deserves this spot. Netflix did an amazing job with a character that had been essentially made into the laughing stock of the superhero world by Marvel & Ben Affleck in 2003.  I’ll admit I was skeptical when the series was announced, but Charlie Cox is phenomenal as Matt Murdock and the dark tone of the show is much more conducive to the tone of the comics. It’s a solid A+.

2. Breaking Bad

Yet another show that if you haven’t seen it I will ask you WHY, GOD, WHY?! Just watch it. It’s incredible. Intelligent and witty while being so unbelievably dark and twisted.  It’s not even one of my “favorite” shows, because something that dark just cannot be placed in my favorites, BUT it 100% deserves this spot on my list because I appreciate how groundbreaking it was.

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Still my favorite show of all time. Just hearing the theme song makes me giddy on a thousand different levels. You can only understand if you’re in the club.

Honorable Mentions (because I can’t keep it at just 5):

Star Trek (any series)  //  Game of Thrones // How I Met Your Mother //  Flash //  Gilmore Girls  // Arrow //  The Vampire Diaries

honorable mentions

And, just for funsies, once I’m all caught up on the current episodes of my favorite shows  – seriously I’m really far behind on S.H.I.E.L.D, Supernatural, American Horror Story, and Grey’s Anatomy – these are the ones I plan to watch next!

Top 5 Upcoming Binges:

1. Orphan Black

2. Chuck

3. Sons of Anarchy

4. Friends

5. Gotham


How about you? Any suggestions based on what I’ve listed above? I’m a TV series junkie, so I’d love some more recommendations!

Five Fandom Friday: My Fictional BFF’s

fandom.5.friday

Well, I’ve been AWOL for a hot minute, I know. That’s a really long story that we probably don’t need to get into right at this moment. BUT, this week’s 5 Fandom Friday prompt was way too good for me to miss – Fictional BFF’s!

1. Sydney Sage (Bloodlines) – Sydney is a hardcore academic with some serious compassion & loyalty. She fights fiercely for the people she loves & I think we’d make excellent besties.

2. Hermione Granger – Another badass bookworm; who wouldn’t want to have Hermione in their corner? This is a no-brainer.

3. Zoe (Fanboys) – I love a crass woman, and Zoe definitely fits the bill. Plus she’s a hardcore geek & I could definitely use a girlfriend to geek out with.

4. Willow Rosenberg (Buffy) – I clearly gravitate towards like-minded academia lovers, huh? Willow has been my dream BFF since I was 10.

5. Cisco Ramon (The Flash) – I can’t help but smile any time Cisco is in a scene on Flash. He’s my absolute favorite. I love his cheesy nicknames for meta humans & his bad jokes. He just is who he is & he never apologizes for it.

Every single one of these characters is intelligent, a little quirky, and insanely loyal/compassionate. Those are the three most important characteristics to me in a friend.  Imagine the hijinks we’d all get into together….muahahaha.

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Couples

fandom.5.friday

Well, I decided to join in on 5 Fandom Fridays with Super Space Chick & The Nerdy Girlie. I have been following both for only a few weeks, but I love reading everyone’s roundups on Friday mornings – so I thought I should be a participant, rather than a lurker.

This week is all about love, because Valentine’s. Duh. So here’s a list of my top 5 fictional character pairings. I don’t usually ship characters myself, so I’m just going with favorite couples that are actually couples. And….go.

The Ruby Circle | Richelle Mead

1. Sydney Sage & Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines). I’m only halfway through the 3rd book of this series, but I’ve been obsessed with Adrian since Vampire Academy. I was really rooting for his happiness in that one, but I think it’s definitely going to happen in this series. For real. I love Adrian’s enigmatic personality & how he completely balance’s out Sydney’s neuroses. I’m a wholehearted believer of the “opposites attract” trope when the characters are solidly planted at opposite ends of the personality spectrum.  I can’t wait to see how this relationship plays out in the last half of the series!

Lafayette & Jesus

2. Lala & Jesus. True Blood consumed a lot of my life while it was on the air, and I loved nothing more than watching Lafayette & Jesus fall in love. They are so devoted to one another & it kills me to think how happy they could have been if they had only lived ANYWHERE other than Bon Temps.  I love Lafayette SO much that I can’t bring myself to read the books because I’ve heard he’s not in them. WHAT? Unacceptable. I’ll probably still read them, anyway. Obviously.

Felicity Smoak + Oliver Queen

3. Felicity & Oliver. Dear GOD, just be together already! You want it, we want it. Just do itttttt. It makes my heart hurt to think about how close they are to perfect happiness.

kbell-fanboys-2-o

4.  Windows & Zoe. Ok, I’m getting to squee levels in my head, here. I can’t even express how much I love the movie Fanboys. And it’s even harder to explain how much I love Windows (Jay Baruchel) and Zoe (Kristen Bell). This is one of those relationships that plays out in an exaggerated version of how it would have happened in real life (I mean, the whole movie is just over-the-top, so what do you expect??). I love that Zoe can hold her own with the boys  in the comic shop & that she swears like a sailor and isn’t afraid to show her boobs to prove a point. I love that Windows is so laser-focused on his online girlfriend that he’s oblivious to anything going on around him. And while the culmination of their feelings for one another is a little cringe-worthy, it’s still got a lot of heart & makes you believe in love for nerds everywhere. I could probably write an entire tome about this movie.

Tom-and-B-Elanna-star-trek-couples-31792834-500-340

5. B’Elanna Torres & Tom Paris. The ultimate OTP for me, is B’Elanna & Tom Paris (Star Trek: Voyager). This is the first adult relationship I watched unfold on screen & it’s among the most realistic fictional relationships I think I’ve ever seen. They are completely devoted to one another, but that doesn’t mean they like each other all the time. Their personalities clash & there is some pretty intense drama, but they always come back because they love each other.

Top 3 Honorable mentions:

Buffy + Spike

Buffy + Spike. I knew this one would cause a lot of controversy, but it’s one I’ve always felt strongly about. I’m currently re-watching the series & will hold my opinions until I’m all the way through, since the last time I saw it I was around 16 years old. Re-watching as an adult has changed my opinion of a lot of things about the series, so far. But as of the middle of Season 5, I’m still team Spike.

Eric-and-Jason-have-sex-True-Blood-3

Jason Stackhouse + Eric Northman. Come ON. This was so hot. Who didn’t love it?

The One

America & Maxon. Oh god, The Selection series. How it has invaded my mind on many a sleepless night. Seriously. I finished The One way back in May and I STILL have dreams about the characters. Maxon Schreave is probably one of my biggest fictional crushes.  America’s a little too flip-floppy for me though.

There you have it. All in the mood for romance this weekend. This was really fun & I can’t wait to participate in next week’s 5 Fandom Friday! How about you? Any OTP’s that you’re super passionate about?

Until next time ❤
