So I got to thinking about this recently and I find that I am (among other things) fans of a decent amount of fandoms. I was wondering what other Forumites might share some of these. So show who you are. What fandoms do you love? What do you call yourself (fandom related).

I am a:

1. Scoobie
2. 'Scaper
3. Whovian
4. Trekker
5. Brown Coat
6. Galactican
7. B5-fan (is there a name?)
8. Supernaturalite(??)
9. 'Lock fan
10. Clone Club member
11. Torchwood member
12. Star Wars fan (Force Freak??)
13. LOTR fan (Ring head?)
14. B7 Fan
15. 24 junkie

I am sure there are others. But who are you?

    @the_spyder Don't you count yourself as a smeghead/dwarfer?

    Mine aren't really in order


    1. smeghead
    2. bastard (sean bean)
    3. spoiling bastard (Book reader who grinned creepily as the red wedding happened)
    4. Galactician (by this I assume you mean battlestar which is awesome!)
    5. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetian
    6. Stigian
    7. pythonist
    8. hedgehog killer (if you can guess you're awesome)
    9. professor at the department of cunning planning
    10. Musketeer
    11. wewereonabreakian
    12. And of course Gater (of the Baldur's kind).

    @Wubble - yes, I am absolutely a 'dwarfer'. I am a lot of other things, it's true.

    And like you, my list is by no means in any sort of order. I couldn't possibly rank my fandoms as I love them all. And yes, 'Gater' as well (in both senses of the word, BG And Stargate).

    And it should go without saying that "I have a cunning plan!"

    I am also a big 'Bruce Campbell' fan. Is that a thing? Don't know, but it should be.

    I think everyone does. It is one of the great unsung fandoms, always getting lost in the shuffle.

    Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Balde Runner, Asimov's stories, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, anything POSIX or Unix, Michael Moorcock's Elric, Hawkmoon and Corum (Ereköse too, but I can't find the books in my stupid country), 1984 (even if I'm in the middle of the book, it goes here), Monty Python, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, the Illustrated Man and Martian Chronicles, Sherlock Holmes (even if I only read The Hound of the Baskerville), Edgar Allan Poe's stories (gotta red his novels yet), Goethe's Faust (and Prometheus), the C programming language, Bionicle, Calderon de la Barca's La Vida es Sueño, Batman (even if I only read very few comics and only liked the 1980 film, yet I have to see the Dark Knight ones), J. A. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, Terry Gilliam's Brasil, movies like Dirty Harry, El Eternauta, GNU Emacs, many stories and novels from Argentinian literature that probably no one knows about (most notably La Invención de Morel and several novels by Julio Cortazar), the Adventures of Tintin, H. Ibsen's The Enemy of the People (and A Doll's House), Asterix and Obelix, several musicians and bands (most notably Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Genesis, King Crimson, The Who, Jethro Tull, Luis Alberto Spinetta (specially Alma de Diamante, which was released under a band named Spinetta Jade), Rick Wakeman, Pink Floyd), LEGO, Harry Potter (not too much, but I really liked the books back then when I read 'em), Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, The Children of Húrin (IMO, it's Tolkien's best book), Emilio Salgari's Tiger of the Malasyia, Sandokan and Duemila leghe sotto l'America (I've read it in spanish, can't find the name in english) Perl (programming language) and Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.

    I've never really been sure what qualifies as a fandom. I tend to think of fandoms as revoloving around things that are series or franchises or have lots of spin-offs etcetera. I mean, I like Paradise Lost for example, but I'm not sure if that would count as a fandom.

    But I also enjoy Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett... haven't read any Discworld books for a long time though. I'll have to see about getting them on Kindle or something (I've ran out of space for my books, so I'm buying more and more through iBooks and Kindle. I know some people will groan at that, but I'm not conservative about these things. It's evolution. It happens. And it's probably better for the trees.)

    Also Jeff Wayne's musical War of the Worlds. I remember having the LP when I was little and loving all the artwork inside it.

    There's only two games and a couple of bands I would call myself a fan of:

    games: Baldur's Gate and Dragon Age

    music: De Kift (Dutch music group), Joy Division, Anne Clark, Marillion

    but only De Kift I'm such a fan of, I buy more than just the main product (from De Kift I have all music, plus the movies they created or participated in, documentaries, a t-shirt and books).

    So in the strict sense of the word, there's only one thing I'm a fan of. On concerts of De Kift I always dance very ecstaticly to Wee Mij (Woe is Me).

    There are many, many TV shows I like, and even love, but I think only two have the status of full-blown fandoms for me, and those would be Star Wars and Star Trek, likely because I grew up on them from childhood through young adulthood.

    Nothing provokes such a nostalgic feeling of having been transported to another world, so immersed that all troubles from the real world completely disappeared, than remembering my first times watching A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Star Trek: The Original Series, and Wrath of Khan.

    I'm a professional musician today because of Star Wars.

    I think my youth during those releases was a key factor. As I got older, it got a lot harder to get me *that* into a fictional franchise.

    EDIT: I forgot a third one that qualifies on similar grounds: Bewitched, mainly for the performances of Elizabeth Montgomery, Agnes Moorehead, Maurice Evans, and Paul Lynde. Plus all those delightful, magical, musical sound effects.
