Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fan fiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

shadow2serenity picked Firefly, Stargate, and POTC.

And here we go, slightly out of order:


1-that would be lemonpiefirefly .  See, like me, she'd seen some episodes of SG-1 on syndicated television and thought they didn't look so hot.  But then she actually watched a few, got interested, and ended up with the first season on DVD.  And the rest, for her, is history.  My story is similar.  See, this dear friend of mine, she leant me the first season after she'd gotten hooked and owned all the rest.  This first season (or maybe it was just the first disc?) sat on my entertainment center for months.  One day, hubby and I got bored.  We watched it.  We watched at least two episodes of Stargate every night from then on until we caught up with where the first run shows were, which was season eight.  Been watching ever since.  Went to Atlantis with my friends and still on their bandwagon now, though I'm uncertain of Stargate Universe and I'd rather have more SGA, thank yew.

2-I don't think I'm going anywhere.  Ever.  Stargate SG-1 made me a writer, and I can never repay that debt.  Stargate changed my life.  Many fandoms do that for many people, but without the lovely characters of SG-1, I'd have never written a fic.  Without that first, horrific little story, I wouldn't be where I am now (blogging for KNTR, blogging for SFX, working on some original fiction, and writing not one but two novel length stories - one fic and one original for NaNoWriMo), and I enjoy writing too much to contemplate that for long.  So, yeah...when I die, just send me through to Pegasus, please.

3-oh...at this moment?  SG-1:  Paradise Lost, Abyss, Lost City, The Other Side, The Light, Lifeboat, 200, Unending, Talion, Reckoning 2, Evolution 2, Grace, Heroes 2, Fire and Water, The Other Guys.  SGA: Poisoning the Well, McKay and Mrs. Miller, Miller's Crossing, The Shrine, Common Ground, The Storm and The Eye, Kindred II (SAVED CARSON BECKETT, GOD DAMMIT!), Outsiders, Tao of Rodney, Sateda, Duet.

4-161 stories seem to say yes.

5-Spinning is so much cooler than not spinning.


1-I'm sure lemonpiefirefly would like to take credit for this, too, but I fear I can only give her 50% of it.  45% belongs to Stargate, and 5% belongs to the sci-fi world at large.  See, dearest LPFF would occasionally mention something like "hey, you should watch Firefly" in discussions.  I always agreed but never got around to it.  That is, until the 200th episode of Stargate, which contains the most blatant of Firefly references in the series.  Add to that the general opinion of the show in the circles in which I move, and I gave in.  I caved.  I got Firefly from Netflix.  By the second disc, I bought the series.  Yeah, it's like that.

2-I will die a Browncoat.

3-Three words.   Out.  Of.  Gas.

4-74 fics would agree, and my involvement in Kids Need to Read is 100% Firefly's fault.

5-keep her flyin.

Pirates of the Carribean

1-merely by seeing the first movie, which I loved because I love almost all things pirate and because it's awesome.

2-hm...I'm not really involved in this fandom, so I think I'll move on.  I'll always like the first movie and to some degree the others, but I don't see myself blogging about POTC in two years, or even next week.

3-Curse of the Black Pearl, of course.

4-not really.  I've played with a bit of graphics, but not much.

5-I think you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest...honestly!

Cool meme, I'd like to play. :)

Ok, um...how about: Harry Potter, Star Trek : TNG, and Firefly.

I'll play, if there's one thing I can talk about it's my fandoms!

For you, my dear, you know I must choose Stargate SG-1. (Incidentally, icon chosen because I miss your Teal'c lightning vid that YouTube took away.) The others? Hm...Magnificent Seven and Supernatural.

I like the Icon! And fyi, you can download Lightning from my website if you want too. It's www.gypsysgate.com

My answers are on my LJ so I could hide the long post behind a cut.

Hugs and thanks for this, it was a lot of un

Thanks and cool! I'll have to get that later. I don't generally download vids. Don't know why, really - just don't. Prefer to watch online. But for you, dear, I'll make an exception. I love that vid.

Thanks for playing. I had fun with this one, too!

I'll play, although my net connection is rather nonexistent at the moment...means I may not respond for a while.

Took me a while to do it, too. These things happen.

Voyager (duh), Earth 2, and Firefly.

Hehe, that was fun, esp. reading your thoughts on Stargate. I see it did for you much what Firefly did for me. The blatant Firefly reference, I take it, was the bit about the three-episode series that was made into a movie because it performed well on DVD? sache8 alerted me to that one. ;) Fact of the matter is, she tried for some time to make a 'Gater of me, but at that point I was all about Firefly and little else in fandom-landom.

There are a ton of SG fans who did not get into it until S7 or 8. Reason being that's when it got syndicated. I see the pattern over and over again. People didn't have cable, or just didn't know it was on sci-fi, or probably most of all they didn't have Showtime (where it started) so they didn't know what it was, etc.

And yes, I was referring to this conversation from 200:

Daniel Jackson-"I don't get it. Why would someone make a movie out of a TV series that only lasted three episodes?"

Teal'c-"It allegedly performed well on DVD."

One interesting thing about SG is that for some reason, SG fans are very much skewed to the female side of things. I know guys who like SG, but they are few and far between. Trek and Wars go the other way and Firefly runs right down the middle, I find. It is what it is.

Oh, and the Firefly stuff gets more prominent in SGA once Jewel comes on board, for better or worse. (You don't want to know how I feel about her character, so I just won't say.)
May. 24th, 2009 09:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, tag me babe. I'll play wit'ye ;)
May. 24th, 2009 09:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, you know I have to: The X-Files.

And the others? Let's see...um...sticking with the theme, so Firefly and...um...oh, why not...Stargate back at ya.
