  • Well, the first two I can really think of happened when I was really young. They were Transformers and Thundercats. About all I did in relation to them were play with the toys and daydream about them. My first true obsession was Star Trek: The Next Generation. In middle school, my friends and I made a club centered around TNG, complete with newsletter (which by the time high school came around, I spent hours and hours perfecting). I could not get enough. Even though I am not still obsessed with TNG, I still love it and have a warm spot in my heart for it.
  • Harry Potter... I would do a lot of fanfiction. I actually wrote some of my own. Mixed in with a little Pirates of the Caribbean. Haven't visited these sites in a long time I wouldn't even know where to go.

  • *points to username* Starsky and Hutch fandom. :) I participated mostly through fanficion, reading and writing. I tried a little fan art and sometimes I like discussions. Alos have posted a few captions and screencaps.

    It's cute how this question implies internet fandom without even meaning to. My first fandom was Star Wars, but I didn't know what fandom was then. I just sat around with my friends talking about Star Wars and snapping up any fiction we could about it.

    Then came TNG, where I started going to cons and hearing rumors of this "fanfiction" thing. You had to buy it. On paper. It was expensive, and I couldn't afford it, but I knew of it.

    And then...then came The X-Files. The be all and end all of fandom by nearly every measure. Why? Because of the internet. Philes were the first to have it and use it for fandom. And that was one hell of a ride.

    Stargate SG-1 came next, then SGA, and Firefly. I'm active in Sherlock, Sanctuary, Farscape, Harry Potter, and many others, too. I'm a multi-fandom kind of girl. Variety is the spice of life and all that. My participation now is mostly fanfiction, but I'll play with art and forums sometimes.

    But in the end, it comes down to five: Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Firefly, and The X-Files. Always.
  • It's probably a tie between Duran Duran and Star Trek. I'm still active in both to the extent that I write fic for them, I go to Duran Duran concerts, I'd go to a Star Trek convention if it was near enough. My favorite Star Trek and Duran Duran communities are on YahooGroups.
