5 Fandom Friday: Fandoms I Hold Dear But No One's Ever Heard Of

Happy Friday! I don't know about where you are, but today is a fantastic Friday here. The sun is shining and you almost don't need a jacket because it's kind of warm. It actually feels like Spring is going to show up.

This week's prompt brought on all the nostalgia for me as I went through all the fandoms I've been into. So this is my narrowed down list of not-so-popular fandoms I'm into:

1. Felicity


A lot of people watched this show or at least have heard of it. But I find a lot of people didn't stick with it if they did watch it. I know this because people are surprised when I mention the time travel part of the series. Yep, there was time travel in this show. I still have a soft spot for this show and Keri Russell in particular. I find it a cozy show to watch in Winter and I tend to re-watch it every couple of years.

2. Scrubs and Cougar Town


Both of these shows have the same creator and so, so many similarities - a lot of actors from Scrubs showed up in Cougar Town, if only for a couple of episodes, and the jokes and humour are very similar. Even the made up coffee shop chain in Scrubs is the same one in Cougar Town. I'm a huge fan of the humour in both of these shows and the casts were fantastic in both shows too. They're shows I will rewatch anytime.

3. Cable aka Nathan Summers


Everyone knows who the X-Men are but not necessarily this one specific character in the X-Men universe. I've read his story from the beginning, from child to time-traveling adult, and he's by far my favourite character.

4. Bust-A-Move


I've been playing the Bust-a-move games for years and years. I fell in love with it in middle school because the local movie theatre I went to had a Bust-a-move arcade machine. This led me to asking for the game for the Nintendo 64. To this day I still play the games on my Nintendo DS and will never turn down a Bust-a-move challenge.

5. 10 Things I Hate About You


This movie was everything to me in high school. I can't even count how many times I've seen this movie. The entire cast is amazing and it solidified my love for Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Larisa Oleynik. The soundtrack was incredible and it introduced me to the likes of Letters To Cleo and Save Ferris. I will forever fangirl over this movie.

What are some obscure fandoms you're into?

  3. I am a HUGE 10 Things I Hate About You fan. I used to watch it all the time with my mom and my sister. I think my mom had a totally inappropriate crush on Heath Ledger (but really, can you blame her?) I never played a Bust A Move game, but I did play the heck out of Bubble Bobble, which I believe was a predecessor. I even got a Bub (the green dragon) tattoo when I was in Vancouver last.
