Sunday Inspiration - Obsessive Fangirl Edition

Yes, I finally reached 8 viewings for Star Trek Into Darkness.  That *technically* beats my views for Star Trek because I only saw it 7 times in 2009 and added my 8th last month at the double bill.

I know I'm obsessive. It's an endearing (or frustrating) quality of mine.  I can't help it. When I love something, I love it with all my heart.

And I love Star Trek.


Do you know what the coolest thing would be? If I created something other people loved the way I love Star Trek.  Wouldn't that be amazing?

A girl can dream ;)

For now though, I'll have to keep using the soundtrack to inspire epic fight scenes ;)


Have a great week everyone!

  2. You know, if I lived near you, I'd go see it with you again and then we could go for afternoon tea and fangirl over Kirk's blue eyes. ;-)

  3. I'm exactly the same way. Only the past 8 years I've been in college with no money, so I haven't been able to spend as much going to the movies. But when I was in high school, I'd see movies I loved as many times as possible. Lord of the Rings, Return of the King: 7 times. First Pirates of the Carribean: 5 times. I've been trying to convince my sister we need to see Star Trek: Into Darkness again but we haven't had time yet. We just finished Sherlock though and are now deliciously obsessed with Mr. Cumberbatch, so we have scheduled to see it again on Saturday. I can't wait!

    I love being able to get this obsessed about things. It's about passion. How lucky we are to be passionate about things, when so many people get so easily bored. I'll take the borderline crazy fan role above the bored, cant enjoy anything role every day of the week. :)

    Fan girl on, my friend. Fan girl on.

    1. Sherlock's fantastic, isn't it?

      I only see a few films a year, so when something I really love comes out, I have to see it multiple times. Enjoy your next viewing! TAKE TISSUES :P

      Yes! I love that I can keep watching Star Trek and keep loving it! It makes me happy!

      Fangirl for LIFE! :D

  4. As you know, I'm more of a Who-obsessive than a Trek-obsessive, but I think it is interesting--and instructive--for writers to consider what makes things like this so absorbing. J.K. Rowling has probably given me the most insight into this through the various interviews she's done where she talks about creating the Potter series. A key element that comes out, and I think this applies to Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, etc., is that there is depth to the world. There's substance, something for the fans to get their teeth into, something that fires fan imaginations, that spurs them to think "what if" within that fictional world. I think what frustrates a lot of writers is that such things take a long time to develop. To build a world with any semblance of depth and consistency is not an overnight, few days, few weeks kind of thing. Rowling took five years to plot her series. Star Trek's been evolving since the 60s, and Who is 50 this year.

    That's what I think, anyway. :)

    1. Depth is essential and you're so right about the "what if" question. The more there is to experience, the more there is to explore. And as an obsessive fan, that's the kind of depth I can really lose myself in.

      I agree with you completely, Colin.

  5. Hahaha - that's quite the record to break. What ever will you do if they make a third one? ;)

    1. If? IF?!?!? When they make a third one, I guess I'll have to go for nine ;)
