If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

Among all of the prompts listed, I really loved the idea of creating a playlist for character. Of course, I can’t just pick one so I’ll start with my dog’s name sake: Padme Amidala. While she’s got some haters, she’s still one of my favorite Star Wars characters. She was one of the youngest queens of her planet, a fashion icon, and one of the greatest heroes of the galaxy. She is not just Luke and Leia’s mother, but she was also a political bad ass. Without further ado, I present to you, Padme’s mixtape!

I easily ship any character in any TV show. Just ask my husband. I ship it. All. The. Time. That being said, I’m behind on basically every TV show (well… just StarGate SG1 on this list) so please don’t spoil anything for me in the comments. It’s a sad thing how far behind I am. Hopefully no one takes my geek card for it…

Father’s Day is this weekend in case you needed a reminder (here it is!). I thought this 5FF prompt was perfect for today! There’s so many fictional dads out there that truly are my favorites. I decided to pick five fathers that really embody the “best” dad. From anime to Disney, here are my favorite fictional dads!

While I no longer have an hour long commute, I still listen to podcasts and audiobooks on the way to work and on the way home. Recently, Alec and I took a ten hour trip back to my hometown for our wedding shower. We literally went through the entire playlist for the Tales podcast, and it was glorious. I thought today would be a good day to share some of my favorite podcasts (and a YouTube channel) with you guys! Continue reading “5FF: Favorite Podcasts”

5FF: Characters I Would Name My Kids After

So many people have named their kids after their favorite characters, and I just love it! I hear those name drops (Luna, especially), and it takes me back to my favorite books or shows. I always wonder how a favorite character winds up as a potential baby name so here’s five baby names and why I would pick them for my kids!

Emma Swan (Once Upon a Time)

Emma isn’t a perfect “Disney” princess which is why I love her so much. She’s flawed and owns it. She has a tough journey and she came out on the other end whole and happy. She also enjoys the simple things like hot cocoa with cinnamon and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Rory Williams (Doctor Who)

p00nll76.jpg

Of course Rory is on this list because he’s one of the best companions! Rory is headstrong, smart, and loyal. Who else would wait for 1,800 some-odd years for their SO? He’s humble and also a bit sarcastic which I admit I love. He’s also compassionate and faithful, always with empathy and (a lot of) patience .

Arya (Eragon)

Arya has forever had a place in my heart as a potential baby name. She may come off as reserved but her emotions are strong, often making her sound outspoken and opinionated. She often talks of being equal to men and is ever faithful to her people.

Henry Mills (Once Upon a Time)

Another character from OUAT that has stolen my heart. Henry is just so good. He was literally the glue that held his family together on many occasions. He kept faith in his moms (Emma and Regina) even when they didn’t have faith in themselves.

Violet Baudelaire (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

latest.png

One of my favorite book series is A Series of Unfortunate Events. Of course, I immediately was drawn to Violet. All three of the Baudelaire are very intelligent and resourceful, but Violet, the older sister, really resonated with me. If you haven’t watched the Netflix adaptation, you really should.

5FF: Fictional Characters You Most Identify With

5FF: Fictional Characters You Most Identify With

If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

This list was pretty easy to come up as usually my favorite characters are the ones I identify with. Now obviously none of these characters totally embody my personality or even who I am as a person, but they do possess several traits that I find we have in common.

Hori-san

tumblr_ohsaviDjQK1uc8rzzo1_1280.png

Hori-san is half of Horimiya, a sweet romance manga about two classmates that discover the other’s secret and develop a unique friendship. Much like Hori-san, I too am an over achiever and a hard worker. She can also be abrasive, especially when it comes to her feelings. My husband jokingly refers to me as a Tsundere which I think fits Hori-san when she’s outside of school.

Hermione Granger

Another over achiever, Hermione is also steadfastly loyal and loves to read. Her greatest fears are probably failure and letting people down, much like my own. Hermione quickly became my favorite Harry Potter character with her quick wit (that I lack sometimes) and her will to make changes for those who couldn’t do for themselves like the house elves.

Kagome Higurashi

I bet you just went back in time when you read that name. Kagome is the leading female protagonist on InuYasha who has spiritual powers and kick-ass archery skills. While many viewers found her annoying and a bit of a damsel in distress in the beginning, Kagome is very determined, bold and kind. I took up archery because of her. I watched her grow into a strong and powerful priestess with a heart of gold. Like Kagome, I take pride in being myself, “unattractive” traits and all.

Tenth Doctor

Ten is not just one of my favorite Doctors; he’s also the one I identify with the most. Behind a positive and joyful demeanor is someone who carries a lot of guilt and anger. During conflict, he can be fiercely protective and without mercy. While I’m working on some of my own issues with guilt and anger, I still very much try to be positive and learn from the past.

Asuna Yuuki

While coming across as strong and fierce later in SAO, Asuna had some mental health issues that led her to falling in love with Kirito who helped her straighten herself out. When SAO became in-real-life dangerous, she didn’t care much whether or not she died. Kirito became her lifeline and she took his words to heart, much like I do with my husband. She’s not afraid to take matters into her own hands and is very independent, like me.
