CrapPile is blog that I just recently started following. John has quite an opinion on a lot of things which is something I can appreciate. His recent post on the Star Wars prequels caught my eye. As someone who loves the prequels (and even named her dog after Padme Amidala), I enjoyed reading what John had to say.

I’m a huge fan of the blog The Time Ladies and its many writers. Thoughts on Regeneration: A Trans Perspective immediately drew me. Emma is a phenomenal writer and reading her post brought tears to my eyes; it’s a worthy read for anyone and everyone.

Asiana Circus is another new blog I’ve added to my Reader! Like Jella, I found a place to call my own within anime. I also suffer from anxiety, and two of the anime shows mentioned were my escape: InuYasha and Ouran High School Host Club. Check out her list on Top Anime Shows that Help Fight Depression and Anxiety.

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.

Matt at Normal Happenings wrote a phenomenal post about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and the underlying theme of carrying on despite everything trying to tear you down or trip you up. With my grandfather’s sudden passing and a job that never feels secure, Matt’s post felt like a life boat, coming just in the nick of time. Give it a read. You’ll be glad you did.

In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE fan of Doctor Who. I am beyond excited for Jodie Whitaker’s Doctor. I also love the gals over at The Ultimate Guide to the Fashion of Doctor Who who put together this awesome list of fan-made title sequences for the new Who.

Megan at The Dragon’s Tea Party graces us with another #rant. Man, do I love a good rant. She talks about her frustration at non-gamers and their perception of the gaming world and gamers. I’m sure it’s all things you’ve heard before and frustrations you’ve experienced. It’s good to see someone put it down in words.

5FF: Fandoms I’m Thankful For

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 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)!

Thanksgiving is next week, and this prompt couldn’t be more relevant. Going back almost a year ago is one of my first 5FF posts: Fandoms That Made Me Who I Am. This post will hit on this a little bit, but much has changed in a year so get ready for some new fandoms I’m thankful for!

Harry Potter

The series is over and I’m still obsessed. Halloween? HP marathon. Christmas? HP marathon. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the books anymore as I’m reading them again!

Doctor Who

I’m not totally caught up yet but I am so excited to see the new Doctor and all of her glory. The Doctor got me through a bad break up and became my favorite hero.

Stranger Things

The newest fandom to join my list but also a goodie. Anyone else fall hard for these characters and the 80’s aesthetic?

Disney

One of the things that brought my hubby and I together: the mouse. We are so excited to see Disney World on our honeymoon next year.

Star Wars

Star Wars was a late fandom favorite for me but for the past three birthdays of mine, I’ve made my way to the theater for Star Wars.

What fandoms are you thankful for?
