Megan over at A Geeky Gal blog created this challenge for fellow geeks to share all about what makes them nerdy. You can see her completed challenge post here.
What fandom do you love that you didn’t think you would?
I didn’t grow up in a superhero family. Sure, I watched Batman cartoons on TV when I was a kid, and my parents kind of liked that Superman show that was on for a while starring Dean Cain.
I knew some of the big names, but I didn’t really pay attention to the superhero universe. It felt like many of the DC and Marvel movies being made had sub-par writing. I was too busy gobbling up Lord of the Rings and Star Wars to pay much attention to comic book superheroes.
That changed when the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a thing, and really only because of my husband. He loved those movies and insisted I watch them with him.
I am glad I did.
When my husband is excited about something, it is infectious. He’s typically a mild-mannered guy that maintains a calm demeanor. But when he gets hyped about a fandom, his personality lights up.
When he nerds out, I can’t help but nerd out with him. He’s introduced me to many things since we’ve been together: Magic: The Gathering, Mad Men, and The Walking Dead, to name a few.
The Marvel movies are something he get’s animated about, so now I do too.
What about you? What fandom are you surprised to find yourself in? Tell me in the comments?
