5 Fandoms We Love But Didn’t Think We Would

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday is 5 Fandoms We Love But Didn’t Think We Would. Nice. Let’s see if we have 5 fandoms that we joined hesitantly at first.

1. Supernatural

Neither of us is a big fan of the horror genre – and at first, Supernatural was supposed to be just that: a horror show. There’s still creepy monsters today, but they’re mostly found in the first couple of seasons. The changelings, for once, still creep me out. So I was not quite sure whether I would enjoy the show or not. But then I watched it, and I fell in love with it. And made Sam fall in love with it. And now we’re so into this thing that we go to conventions and stuff. So yeah, I’d say that was a surprise. Who would have thought that it could go from this:

2. The Lunar Chronicles

As far as I know, there’s not a big fandom for The Lunar Chronicles, but we’re still going to put it on this list, because we loved the books so much, but never thought we would. Sure,  we’ve read the occasional Sci-Fi book and might even have enjoyed a couple of them, but we’re not huge fans of the Sci-Fi genre (Star Wars doesn’t count). But man, did The Lunar Chronicles surprise us. We might even change our minds about Sci-Fi in general. These books are fantastic, and we both devoured them like there was no tomorrow.

3. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I was very sceptical about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I wasn’t persuaded by the promos, cause I felt it looked… I don’t know, weak? Or something. I don’t think I ever would have started watching the show, but Sam kept insisting I should because she loved it, and now I’m more obsessed with the show than she is. So it’s all her fault.

4. Team Cap

It’s not a fandom per-se, but we still thought we’d add it, because we never thought we’d ever be Team Captain America. The first movie was… well, let’s say it could have been a lot better, and in The Avengers, Steve Roger’s role wasn’t all that big, and he was a bit too much of a boy-scout in our opinions. But then we watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and our opinions did a U-turn with sreeching tires. He wasn’t just a boy-scout anymore. He was awesome. We always thought we’d be more for Iron Man – turns out we were wrong. Now that Civil War is almost upon us, we’re definitely rooting for the Captain. Sorry, Tony.

5. Teen Wolf

It’s one of our guitly pleasure fandoms, what can we say. The only reason we ever even started watching this show was because we were bored. And even though Teen Wolf is every bit as cheesy and sometimes cringe-worthy as its title, we still enjoy watching it. At least they have stayed true to the cheesiness and cringe-worthiness we’ve come to expect and somewhat even love. Plus, Stiles is awesome.

  1. Cinder didn’t leave me with the feeling I’d hoped it would, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the writing gets better with the next few books. But I’m all about Team Cap. It kinda snuck up on me and I realized that I REALLY love Cap.

  2. Team Captain America all the way! I will add in defense of Tony though that the creators had to really morph his character to get this outcome. I mean, who really sees the Iron Man from the IM movies siding with the government? I can’t see him ever doing so, but a Civil War needs two sides with two great leaders, hence we get Cap versus Iron Man. Should be a great movie though.

  3. Super Natural and Agents of SHIELD I still need to check out. Like you, I’m not a fan of the horror genre, but I do hear a lot of positive things around it, so… maybe when we’re done with Dr Who!

    I’m also totally with you on team Cap. I really, really like Ironman too (he always makes me laugh), but the whole government thing… I get where he comes from, but I feel it’s maybe a bit too much power for the government. Reminds me of the whole SHIELD thing (Hydra). I’m sort of dreading having to see Civil War because I like both characters so much. :/

  4. I love seeing the Lunar Chronicles on your list! I was recently exposed to the series, and powered through the books as quickly as possible. I actually just got a notification that my hold for “Stars Above” just became available, so I am looking forward to getting more Lunar goodness! ❤
