Hey, guys!! Eowyn here. I was going to do an epic post about one of my favorite fandoms… when I realized…
I NEVER POSTED MY FEELS TRIGGERS POST.
So I’m here to talk about my feels triggers. The epic post will have to wait. (Also, these are strictly my movie feels triggers. If I included books in here… we’d all be here forever.)
6 – Disney
Okay, so I’m a 90’s kid. Most of the movies during Disney’s (FIRST) Golden Age came out when I was little, so I grew up on them. Disney will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve really enjoyed seeing the newer Disney movies going back to their older standards, which is why I called the Golden Age the first one. The most recent examples of this are Frozen and Maleficent, which both show that true love isn’t always between a guy and a girl.
5 – Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit
I’m a Tolkiendil, and Faramir is my favorite character in the entire Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit fandom. I had to read all of the LOTR books before I could watch the movies, and I’ll remember them forever! While I’m not one of those huuuuuge fans who has an entire cosplay wardrobe or can say the pledge of allegiance in Elvish… I still love watching the movies – The Superior EXTENDED Editions, thankyouverymuch.
4- Les Miserables
Ugh, Les Mis…. Why must you torture me so? This is my favorite musical evah, and I love it for so many reasons!!! Whenever someone says they don’t like it, I instantly go all “Who cares about your lonely soul?” on them. (You don’t want to see me like that. Trust me.) Honestly, where is there a better example of the law vs. grace, besides Christ’s ultimate sacrifice for sinners like you and me? True, it’s been called The Musical Where Everyone Dies, but it’s totally worth it. One of my dreams is to see it on Broadway!
3 – The Hunger Games
Okay. This is a relatively new fandom for me (as in, I was finally allowed to read the books and watch the movies less than a month ago), but I’m all in. When I read the books, I was completely and totally enamored with how deep they all are! There are so many great analogies and morals. I can’t wait to read the books again! Hopefully I can read them in longer than a week, though. That was a little much. (Speaking of, Mockingjay Parts One and Two are going to kill me. Ugh, I’ll probably be all SGOINGLFALNKGNI after seeing them. Excuse my pardon.)
2 – Marvel (or, more specifically, STEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVE.)
I was never really a “superhero person” – up until about three years ago, that is. Captain America: The First Avenger was my first real introduction to superheroes (the old Superman and Spider-Man movies don’t count because I didn’t like them at. all), and I’ve been hooked ever since! I’ve seen more of the Marvel movies over the past year than I care to admit, and I love all of them (even the Thor movies, which, to be totally honest, I only love because of Hiddles. Sue me.) Steve Rogers will always be my favorite, though – and you can be sure that I’ll do many, many, many posts about him.
1 – Boy Meets World
*sigh* Boy Meets World, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
There’s a reason why BMW is my top favorite fandom. It’s real – that’s what I love about it. There’s nothing wrong with the other Disney shows – I enjoy watching a few episodes of all of them. However, you can only go so far with a TV show about bionic teenagers or a teenage rockstar or a group of super-smart kids. Boy Meets World is real. It’s about a group of teenagers with no ambitions to be famous, who go through normal struggles such as friendship problems, family problems, and school problems. I’ve learned so much from this show since I discovered it last October – mostly due to mentor/teacher/neighbor/friend, George Feeny. Feeny and the other adults on the show is the other reason why I love it – while they’re often very funny, they’re always smarter than the kids, who know to go to them for advice. The episodes always have a point and a lesson to be learned. I’m currently on Season Five, and I love it to itty-bitty bits and pieces. (Don’t even get me started on how excited I am about Girl Meets World.)
