Everyone has those fandoms they used to be super invested in, and now are no longer a part of.
I’m relatively new to “book fandoms” because I never realized that there were fandoms for books… I also live under a rock. So I’m just gonna list TV show fandoms I used to fangirl over.
The Vampire Diaries
I used to LOVE The Vampire Diaries. One of my sorority sisters got me into it my freshman year of college, and I binge watched all three seasons in a week. (RIP to all the time I had on my hands.) I watched Elena and the Salvatore Brothers every Thursday without fail, until the show took a sharp turn for the annoying. They would kill off characters only to bring them back a few episodes later, break up my favorite ships, write characters off the show and bring in new characters that we were supposed to be invested in… etc. When they killed off Elena, the main character of the show, I thought they were done for. Somehow they ended up doing 2 more seasons, ending with a mediocre at best finale. A sad ending to what used to be one of my favorite shows.
This one went up and down for me. Seasons 1 and 2 are my favorite. Lost interest in the middle, gained it back in the last season. Chuck and Blair forever, Dan is a twat.
I really liked this show when I watched the first season, I even got my boyfriend at the time into it. I lost interest in it in the second and third season, and I haven’t been able to get back into it.
Witches of East End
I loved this show, and then they ended it after only two seasons, and on a cliff hanger too! It’s obviously not coming back, so I’ve let that ship sail. (But you can still watch it on Netflix!)
The Hunger Games
I still love this series, but I think it just got waaay over hyped for me. At first, I liked that everyone was excited about a series that I loved, but then it was all everyone would talk about. I think I just got sick of the Dystopian genre. I’ll still pick up the series to re-read, but I don’t think I’ll ever obsess over the fandom again.
