Sometimes, I love being a member of fandom, it brings me a lot of joy. Case in point, I just finished watching the four part DC episode Crisis on Earth-X. It was AMAZING! 😊
I won’t give anything away, but if you’re a fan of Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, or Legends you need to watch this episode. I enjoy being engaged in fandom because it’s something that brings me joy and makes me happy. The DC Crossover puts many of my favorite characters together in a story that highlights the greatness that is the DC TV universe. We’re not going to discuss the DC movie universe and the trash fire that most of those movies are right now. There are a few exceptions, I loved Wonder Woman and Justice League had its strong points, but the others…
Anyway, I digress, I love being a fan. Especially when it gives me these types of moments:
Oliver’s face is so confused it’s precious!
Many people think being a geek or a nerd is a bad thing, but being a geek or a nerd means being a fan about… something, whether or not that’s Comics or gaming or trivia or birds or gardening, whatever. And if being a fan means i can be excited and gush about a TV shown with my friends when it makes me happy well… i am always going to be a fan.
My mother used to say that she thought i would grow out of gaming. Not in so many words, but I think she thought my interest would eventually turn to something more “adult”. It definitely hasn’t, as I’m more into fandom and gaming than ever before.
There really hasn’t been much point to this post, but i guess what I’m trying to say is… I think it’s good to be a fan, to be a geek or a nerd, and i don’t want to be any other way. And I hope to make more fandom friends along the way.
Happy International Cat Day 💜
