I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been threatened with physical violence simply because I expressed enjoyment of a new TV show, movie, series, comic book, etc.

I’m so sick of being afraid to tell people “I love _____” because I fear the repercussions that might come from people who believe their favorite fandom is theirs and theirs alone. The fastest way for a fandom to stagnate is to try and dictate who can or can’t enjoy it.

Life is short. Like what you like.

Bunny Hat = Bob's Burgers
Fez Hat = Doctor Who (or Fez)
T-shirt = Steven Universe
Candy Colored Horn = Homestuck
Scarf = Ravenclaws from Harry Potter
Red Shoe = Wizard of Oz (or Pacific Rim)
Green Boot = Super Mario Bros 3
Magnifying Glass = Sherlock

I double dip in a lot of fandoms. Nobody seems to mind.

Though my fandom outfit is probably far more convoluted. XD

We can like Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Super Mario Bros, Sherlock, and every other fandom together because being a fandom's *biggest fan* kinda sucks. I love the fandoms I'm in and I love most of the people in them with me, but dictating who can and can't be in it is pretty cold. I would never do that. I wouldn't even say I love it more than another person because that's just rude. Rude and *probably* not ginger.

:P What if I were to try inviting you into my fandom?

(Monster is a fantastic show, if you're looking for one. It's on the serious side, though. Not sure what your preferences are... but consider this an open invite!)

It's amusing that I pretty much love all the things represented here.

Sherlock and Homestuck the most.
