What do I mean by "my fandoms"?
This isn't just a list of "stuff I love", though obviously there's major overlap there. But neither is it a list of stuff for which I have been actively involved in fandom already, or have already written fiction for. I suppose what this boils down to is a list of fandoms I'm prepared to write in, which meet the following three criteria:
a) I love the canon.
b) I have the enthusiasm to want to write fic (this isn't necessarily the same thing as just loving the thing; I love Donnie Darko, for example, but wouldn't want to write fic in that universe).
c) I'm familiar enough with the canon to feel somewhat confident writing fic.

This is probably more of an exact definition than most fandom-savvy readers would ever need, but um... I like writing definitions? I don't know. It's kind of useful to me to have some criteria by which I decide what goes on this list.

Also, I haven't bothered to italicise the names of TV shows/movies/books, because I am lazy and ALL THE HTML TAGS.

Angel, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica (reboot), The Big Bang Theory, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Dollhouse, Elementary, Eureka, Farscape, Firefly, Fringe, Haven, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Once Upon A Time, Sleepy Hollow, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Supernatural, Torchwood, Warehouse 13, The West Wing, The X Files.

Avengers movies, Die Hard movies, Fast & Furious movies, Harry Potter movies, Inception, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Serenity, Star Trek (reboot).

Anne of Green Gables (and subsequent books), Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, Harry Potter books, Little Women (and subsequent books), The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit (books), popslash, Welcome to Night Vale, various Diana Wynne Jones books.

This is a very logical, useful way to break fandoms down, actually.

I like how you categorize fandom. I've noticed a lot of people use it more generically these days - i.e. "I like it enough to remember who the main characters are." Which isn't to say that doesn't make you a fan, but it doesn't make you part of the fandom, so to speak.

For me, part of being in fandom versus really liking something is also how much you want to discuss it, and how in depth. Not that if you don't, you're not still in the fandom, but to me obsessiveness plays a huge part. Then again, I got into fandom through discussion, rather than fanfic. (Even though I wrote fanfic long before I knew about fandom. I hope that makes sense.)
