The Fandom Wars: It Begins…

3 Chic Geeks Fandom Wars master post

Once upon a time, there was a trickster god that happened to be a blogger. With your luck, that trickster god happened to be Freak Geek (who, if you are just tuning in, is convinced she is Loki), and that “once upon a time”? Yeah, um, that’s like… now. Anyway, it was the middle of August, and no game was afoot; the pantheon of bloggers that presides over 3 Chic Geeks was bored. So, the Trickster God Freak Geek said, “Hey, remember how we had a Ship War back in March? Let’s have another war now, for fandoms. It’ll be fun. It’ll be bloody.” And so… here it is.

So, here’s what’s happening. We’ve got the 32 fandoms, and we’re pitting them against each other in a bitter battle of voting online by fans. You (the readers) will vote on your favorites, and help us determine which fandom deserves the crown as the Top Dog of the Fandom War. We selected our fandoms very scientifically for this venture; by scientifically, we mean we scrolled down our Tumblr dashes and picked out the 32 fandoms we saw first. Then, we paired them by type, genre and/or most cheesy puns we could get out of the matchup titles. Very scientific and serious stuff here, folks! A full hour was dedicated to composing cannibal jokes that are inappropriate for public conversation. And, finally, it’s here – the Fandom Deathmatch will begin shortly…

The voting will begin later tonight and remain open until end of Monday, August 12th. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages, or subscribe to us by email so you won’t miss out on the voting!

Before we open up the voting, though, we thought you’d want to know a bit about the fandoms we’ve chosen for this deathmatch thing adventure, and whom they’re up against. Read on for short blurbs regarding each fandom, download the fandom war brackets and breathe deeply! May fortune be ever in your (fandom’s) favor!

We are aware not all of the “current” fandoms made it; unfortunately, just 32 of them was a lot of work. We will apologize in advance if you feel your fandom did not receive an adequately sassy blurb; writing blurbs for 32 fandoms in 24 hours and only knowing about 2/3 of them does not result in good blurbs. (Always ask people for help and plan ahead, kids! And don’t have sex standing up!)

Which fandoms are you rooting for? What outcomes are you betting on? How much do you hate us right now? Leave a comment below, or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook!

Thank yous go to our intern Shadow, to our friend Bridget for helping us figure out what Divergent is; and to my dear mummy Jess and our friend Ashley for moral support during the ordeal of finding 32 images of the fandoms.
 

Update: THE VOTING HAS BEGUN.

I love candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach and killing demons. Usually you can find me at rock concerts. 90% of redditors believe me to be male. I'm pretty sure I'm Loki.

  1. This is going to be painful. I can see it already.

  2. Seriously? You pitted Buffy/Angel against Bones? That’s wrong! And LOTR and Dr. Who? You are just trying to make our lives miserable, aren’t you?

    Can’t wait!!

  3. So….this is the best idea of…like ever. I love it! Can’t wait to vote for my favorites :)

  6. Oh also you didn’t know what divergent is? Its an ehhhhhhhhh book honestly the second one sucks and the movie looks like its gonna suck, sadly the same girl is in the TFIOS movie so I can only hope she isn’t a completely terrible actress

  7. I am too excited!! Last time my favourites won ;)

  8. LOtR vs Doctor Who I hate u guys so much.

  9. You cruel, cruel soul… oh and, by the way, THE GAME IS ON!

  10. Once vs. Merlin? BSG vs. Firefly? How will I chose? At least the Star Wars vs. Star Trek is a little easier. I am, however, glad to see Charmed made the list. I watched that show up unitl the Avatar storyline confused the hell out of me.

  17. Lord of the Rings VS Doctor Who is just cruel. How in the world am I supposed to choose?!

  18. Ah man, this will not end well. Interesting blood sport though. Kudos for being absolutely crazy. ^_^

  20. Of course I’m rooting for Supernatural and Dexter.

    • Bit late on Dexter, I’m afraid – Hannibal’s eliminated it this time round. However, if you head to Round 2 you’ll have time to vote for SPN as that poll just went live!
