5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Pets I'd Like To Adopt


Welcome to another Fandom Friday brought to you buy The Nerdy Girly & Super Space Chick, this week we're talking about the cutest animals in all the fandom relm and listing the pets we want to adopt which *spoiler alert* for me is ALL THE PETS! I'm one of those people that doesn't care who lives or dies as long as the animals survive, fun fact, it took me 4 attempts to watch The Drop because I was getting so stressed that something would happen to the dog, in relation I totally get it John Wick because if anyone did that to my dog I'd go on a rampage to! There's so many pets I could put on this list I may just have to do a Fandom 5 part 2...


Ghost
Daenery's and her dragons seem cool but let's face it they're kind of bratty the Direwolves seem much easier to handle and there's the whole warg thing to which must be an amazing experience. Ghost is loyal yet independent and he'll keep you safe and warm on those cold winter nights, definitely my favourite Direwolf of the pack.

Toothless
Drogon and co. seem a bit belligerent for me to want as pets but this dragon would be perfect I mean Toothless is essentially a dragon with the personality of a dog. I adore the relationship between him and Hiccup and am totally envious because I mean who doesn't want a pet dragon?


Krypto
A dog with all the cool superpowers of Superman need I say more? I mean this would take walkies to a whole new level, Krypto has to be the coolest dog ever!

Winston & Friends
Winston the only one of the pack with a name (and not in this picture) but I would happily adopt all these dogs because I love dogs and I'm a sucker for adopting waifs and strays speaking of while we're at it I'll adopt Will Graham to because let's face it he's the cutest puppy of the pack.

Pascal
I was very close to listing Dug from Up but I think you get the point that I'm dog obsessed and will adopt any and all dogs even the smelly mean ones so I thought I would change it up and go with Pascal because I love chameleons they're adorable with their expressive eyes and little hands and Pascal is such a cool dude I bet he would make an awesome friend!

#LFCC: Meeting Hayley Atwell AKA Agent Carter


Ever since Peggy's introduction in Captain America: The First Avenger, I have been obsessed with this lady. When I heard about the one-shot debut at San Diego Comic Con I got there first thing to get tickets but unfortunately with the craziness that was Game of Thrones I missed out on seeing it BUT to my delight she returned with her own whole series and OMG it is the best thing currently on TV and I cannot put into words my love for this lady. I was thinking of skipping London Comic Con this year to save some cash but as soon as Hayley Atwell was announced as a guest I knew I had to go, unfortunately tickets quickly sold out for the weekend and just as I was about to admit defeat my awesome Dad knowing my love for Peggy got us a pair of gold passes so of course I cried...

LFCC Hayley Atwell

I've been doing this Captain Carter outfit/cosplay thing since SDCC in 2013 so I thought I would do a mash up of past outfits seeing as I wouldn't have time to make a new one and even though I said I wouldn't do a con in heels again I had to wear the Peggy shoes because they're THE shoes she wore in the show. I was very excited but nervous to meet her and add heels into the mix and there was a very real chance of me falling flat on my face (Fun Fact: when I first met Kristian Nairn AKA Hodor I tripped and fell into his desk... so glamorous!). My first encounter with her was at her photoshoot and I honestly felt so faint and giddy waiting for my turn but thankfully I didn't fall over and when my turn came her eyes lit up and she said she really loved my outfit and I looked fantastic and all I could manage to say to her was a very squeaky "THANK YOU!" before skipping out of the photobooth.

When I met her again later at the signing I had no idea what I said to her or what we spoke about I was just in a complete daze but there was so many things I wanted to say to her like how much I love her, how grateful I am for her for speaking up about representation and equality and how much she's influenced and made me want to be the best person I can possibly be but I was so damn stunned I think I just said thank you a million times while grinning like an idiot but at least I didn't cry or fall over so that's something...

At the end of the day Hayley gave a talk and when she first came of stage she spotted me in the hat pointed at me grinning and gave me a wave then preceded to tell us all about her dubsmash adventures in SDCC and how she took a 5 hour flight to Altanta to make a 9 second video with Chris Evans (if you haven't seen it go forth and watch the madness it's amazing!) then as soon as it was done flew back to LA and how much fun they have on set pranking each other. Most importantly though she spoke so eloquently about the importance of Peggy and her role as a feminist working which almost made me cry because she just gets it and she's not afraid to speak out, it was just everything I love about her and it made me so happy, Peggy is definitely paving the way for more female led roles and representation in the superhero worlds and this is what I've always wanted, it's so warming to hear that Marvel are really taking these issues seriously and not just brushing us off. It's not everyday you get to meet your heroes and Hayley Atwell is definitely one of mine, she's a beautiful human inside and out and I wish her all the best and I can't wait to see more of her and Agent Carter soon.

5 Fandom Friday: Fictional Vehicles I'd Love To Travel In


Welcome to another Fandom Friday brought to you buy The Nerdy Girly & Super Space Chickfor our topic this week we're talking transport. I have to admit for someone who travels quite a bit I don't travel well so instant teleportation a la Star Trek would be ideal for me, but there are some uber cool vehicles out there which have become just as iconic as the shows there in so here are just a few of my faves.

The Impala
Unlike Dean I'd rather fly everywhere than drive but I'd make an exception for Baby who seems to be the most reliable, magical car out there who seems travel across country in a matter of hours.... Ok jokes aside I do love this car, she's got a rich, loving history she's basically a Winchester and to top it all off she looks bad ass!

The DeLorean
Delorean
I mean do I really have to explain this one? It's a car that can travel through time I can't think of anyone in the galaxy who doesn't want a car that can do that.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Hellicarrier
This thing is so damn cool it blows my mind! I love flying it's my favourite form of transportation and could you imagine flying in this I mean it's kinda like a cruise liner IN THE SKY the view must be amazing, not to mention it would be full of ultra cool gizmos and gadgets to play with.

Nanananana Batman!!
Batmobile
For someone who doesn't like cars there's quite a few on this list but I couldn't resist a ride in the Batmobile I mean it's The Batmobile it;s iconic and there's enough gadgets to play around in there it would keep me occupied for days also ain't nobody going to mess with The Batmobile they see you coming they're going to get outta the way!

Captain America's Motorcycle
Preferably with Cap ♥ I love a good motorcycle ride and it has been waaay too long since I last rode on one. I prefer being on a motorcycle much more than being in a car and at some point I want to learn how to properly handle one so I can get my own bike and ride into the sunset!
