Occasions: Halloween (House)

Fandom meme

I saw this onlizamanynames journal, and thought it interesting.

1. What was your very first fandom? Dig as deeply far back into your childhood as you can.
Starsky and Hutch

2. Are you a serial monogamy fan, or a multi-fan?
A little of both really. I'm a multi-fan, but when I first get into a particular fandom/pairing, they tend to be my focus for a while. This is not totally to the exclusion of the other fandoms, but they certainly play a larger part in my life than my others do for the 'honeymoon' period.

3. List all your fandoms, in order if you are a serial fan, that you can remember.
As I said I'm a bit of both, I'm going to list them. There are other pairings in which I have an interest and about whom I even write, but the fandoms are even more rare and remote than Gibbs/Ducky :-) In fact, a fandom as such doesn't exist, as there seems to be just me and one, maybe two other people who are interested in the pairing.

Starsky & Hutch (Starsky/Hutch)
The Professionals (Bodie/Doyle)
Due South (Fraser/Vecchio)
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (Napoleon/Illya)
NCIS (Gibbs/Ducky)

4. What is your most important fandom? Which do you consider most a part of you at this point in your life? Why?
Hmm, this rather breaks the recent thoughts I've been having about what constitutes a fandom and whether I consider myself part of fandom. I won't get into that at length here, I'll save that for later. At the moment my most important pairing is Gibbs/Ducky, but I wouldn't say that I was 'in' NCIS fandom. As far as 'being in fandom' goes, I'd say that the one I was still more involved with than any other is The Professionals.
