I snorted tea out my nose!

The Sherlock Theme gets yelled at you. Seriously just click here. My poor sister happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I’m pretty sure she’s traumatized by the whole experience. This is our fandom. Yes, we are always like this.

(I’m pretty sure this is what I sound like when Sherlock comes on. I suddenly feel a little less confident about my musical abilities.)

A Fangirl’s Dream Come True!

I know, I know. I’ve already posted one of my ramblings this week, but what can I say? You guys are just special little snowflakes! Actually, the truth is, I’ve got some really amazing news to share with you. For all you poor dears who have to wait for Netflix to put Doctor Who Season 7 out . . . wait no longer! For I have found a miracle website that has changed my life forever.

*whispers* DailyMotion

The fangirl’s dream! All of Season 7 — plus the unaired pilot episode of Sherlock. Hallelujah!

You can thank me later, just go now. Live your dream!

The Weekly Rambling

You guys have been exposed to some real, true-to-goodness fangirling in this blog so far, but here comes the pinnacle of fan exitement. The Squeal. If you have sensitive hearing, please cover your ears now, because this baby’ll go right over the internet.

SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Okay. Now that I got that out of my system, I probably should tell you what I’m screaming about. Otherwise, you might just think I’m insane. Which might be true. So, here you have it. I can say it in one word, one very simple word.

DIVERGENT.

I’ll write a complete review later, (Who knows? I might even make a page just for book reviews.) but anyway, I love it! I finished the entire 500 pages in three hours. No lie!

Also, Loki is returning in Thor 2! Yay! Also, Joss Whedon has hinted at possible redemption for him. That makes me feel better. In Tom Hiddleston’s own words, “He (Eccleston) is the bad guy, and Chris is the hero. I’m just the firework.”

So, on to the next point. The Ninth Doctor is in a Marvel movie! Talk about the ultimate crossover! It will be really interesting to see our beloved peacemaker with a sword . . . not to mention long hair and pointy ears. That’s right, you heard me. Christopher Eccleston will be playing an elf . . . thing.

Back to Divergent. I have mixed feelings about the new movie. I don’t like Theo James, and I think they could have chosen a much better Tris, but overall I’m very happy for the people who think they can go see it, and not have the book ruined forever for them. Like the Hunger Games. Don’t shoot me. I loved the books, but the movie fell short where it mattered most.

Now I’ll go on a little rant here. I literally cannot express how much Ben Affleck should not be Batman. For me, it’s Christian Bale or nothing. And why are they making another Spider-Man movie? Andrew Garfield is a good actor, but he’s just not Spider-Man.

Back to the Who-Vengers crossover. In 2014, we’re getting The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Tom Hiddleston has already confirmed that he won’t be in it, but guess who will! Karen Gillian. Yup, our little Amy Pond has shaved of her beautiful red hair to play an angel. As did Matt Smith. Bummer. He really had great hair – better than mine, actually.

Speaking of hair, who is pleased that Loki got his hair gel back? I certainly know I am, although I have to say I rather like Thor’s long flowing locks. (Again, better than mine!)

I would also like to announce that I converted my friend – into a Sherlockian, that is. It took her about two minutes, and you could just see RDJ moving into second place. *internet high-five*

So, now you see why they’re called ramblings, not just blogposts.

Nomination for the Leibster Award

I want to start out by saying thank you so incredibly much to Miss Emory (from Freak of Fandom) for nominating me for the Leibster blogging award. Rules dictate that I answer her questions and create some of my own for my nominees. Now as far as I know, this award is meant to promote fandom blogs to other fangirls, to help them find someone who’s as crazy interesting as they are.

So here’s her questions.

State your name, rank, and intention.

Fangirl, fangirl, fun.

What is your favorite quotation?

“I will always be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”

If you could have any fictional character’s life for a day, who would you choose?

That’s a hard one. I’m definitely not going to say Katniss Everdeen. I’d say Oswin Oswald, but then I’d die. I’ll go with Molly Hooper.

How would you handle that life?

Terribly. I’m pretty sure I would wring Sherlock’s neck by the end of the day!

Do you have any fictional crushes? If so, who?

Gonna have to say nope on that one. I respect them, but again, I’m just not that kind of girl.

If you could make any canonical crossover happen between two fictional universes, which ones would you choose?

WhoLock all the way!

Who are three of your heroes? (These ones have to be real people)

Jesus first, definitely. Next would be a toss-up between Whedon, Gatiss, and Moffat. Third would probably have to be Lindsey Stirling, the most amazing dubstep violinist on the planet.

What period of history interests you the most?

Medieval.

If you could fill a swimming pool with any food or drink (other than water), what would you fill it with?

Chocolate milk!

Would you rather live in a library where you can have all the books and movies you want with no late fees, a zoo where all the animals know and love you, or a theater, where you get front-row seats and backstage passes to every play?

Totally the library!

Now for my questions!

If you could meet five fictional characters, who would you pick?

Who is your role model in life?

what fictional character are you most like?

Who are your favorite actors or actresses?

What is your favorite movie/TV show?

Favorite book?

give us a short profile of yourself.

What’s your favorite summer activity?

Tell is a little bit about your blog.

what is your dream job?

And my nominees.

What is a Fangirl?

I’ve had so many people ask me that very question, that it’s not even funny. Most seem to think that a fangirl is a shallow, petty teenager, whose only purpose in life is to squeal about hot guys. For some, that is the case. They put a bad name on us real fangirls. I’ll start out with the 5 basics, like finding a fangirl, and caring for her once you find her.

1. Know what you’re looking for.

A fangirl is a female, usually between the ages of 13 and 19. Fangirls are simply normal teen girls that have an obsession with a certain TV show, celebrity, movie, or book.

2. Know the lingo.

Ship – To endorse a romantic relationship between two people. Example: I ship Peeta and Katniss so hard!

OTP – One True Pairing. Example: Amy and Rory are my OTP!

Fanfic – Short for fanfiction. A story about fictional characters written by a fan.

Headcanon – An idea of the story that is not specifically mentioned in the media itself, but is accepted by the fans. A headcanon becomes canon if it is confirmed by the author or director.

Squee – A high-pitched scream delivered by a fangirl, usually provoked by something fictional.

Fandom – A kingdom of fans is the best way to put it, I suppose.

Feels – Highly obsessive feelings so strong that you literally have a feeling siezure.

Fanart – Art relating to the fandom.

Fanvids – Videos about the characters made using original clips, usually set to music.

GIF – (Graphic Interface Format) A soundless animation played on a loop.

3.  The “must” or “need” syndrome.

I must see that concert! I need that t-shirt! These sentences often pop up in fangirls’ conversations. Note: These words are taken out of context, and should not be taken literally.

4. Things you must never say to a fangirl. (If you value your life.)

Fangirls can become highly aggressive creatures, if provoked, so out of pure concern for my non-fangirl readers, I compiled a list of no-nos.

– You do know he’s not real, right?

– Do you ever stop talking about him?

– I think he’s ugly.

– (Insert name of fandom here) is boring!

5. Social Media.

Pinterest, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Google +, the list could go on forever. These are how fangirls stay connected and informed, take away the media, and the fan and the girl will be separated, resulting in a normal, boring teenager.
