#5FandomFriday 5 Deaths I am upset about….SPOILERS

This week’s #5FandomFriday is deaths I am most upset about. As a fangirl, there are plenty. But warning, spoilers ahead if you have not seen these shows or movies.

Phil Coulson Agents of Shield _ Zainey Laney

The Avengers

Ok so this death did not really stick, but I thought I would start you off lightly and work your way up. Coulson is one of the most loved non-superhero characters in the Marvel world in my opinion. And while he does return in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I still remember the devastation I felt when he was killed the movie.  Plus I felt a special connection with him because I saw Clark Gregg with his family (and wife Jennifer Grey) at Disneyland a long time ago. It was before he became the popular guy he is now, but if his Instagram and Dubsmash contributions are any indication, he is a pretty fun guy.

Beth from the Walking Dead _ Zainey Laney


The Walking Dead

We went on such a journey with Beth. First she was depressive and suicidal, then she grew up, really fast. Her skills came in handy when she took care of baby Judith, showing that she no longer was an annoying little sister. Over time she proved to be able to stand up for herself, and became the heart of the group. That is, until she disappeared. From then on, she was caught in a situation alone and treacherous. Her last bit of life she spent trying to protect her new friend, Noah.

And that scene where Darryl carries her from the hospital to Maggie? I bawled, like a baby. No one is safe.


Dr Horrible _ Penny _ Zainey Laney


Dr. Horrible

It was only 45 min, but in that time we fell in love with Penny and Felicia Day. Captain Hammer is a tool (see what I did there?) and you just want her to get together with Dr. Horrible. However, the very thing that Dr. Horrible is using to impress her, kills her. Joss Whedon plays with your heart by panning over the camera to the after affects of that freeze ray. RIP Penny. Too bad you aren’t around for the supposed sequel. Unless Dr. Horrible invents a reanimation ray. One can only hope!

Wash Serenity _ Zainey Laney


Firefly/ Serenity

Though I came late in the game to the Firefly craze, I am thoroughly hooked. Wash is such a funny and likeable character, and with Zooey being the ying to his yang, you can’t help but love him. Until Joss Whedon pulls the camera pan trick again and we see he is no longer a leaf on the wind, but a Wash on a Stick. WHY OH WHY? At least I have comfort in seeing him and Nathan Fillion return in their own web series.


Amy and Rory Doctor Who _ Zainey Laney

Doctor Who

The girl who waited and the centurian who loved her was one of the most devastating set of deaths in the Doctor Who Universe. Killed by some of the creepiest villains, the Weeping Angels, the duo showed what true love is. They stayed together even through the troubles they had in their marriage, and worked through the toughest of things. Their deaths were almost appropriate. Rory died heroically saving the world and Amy died so she could be with him. Even in heir deaths, they were together.


Hope you enjoyed this weeks #5FandomFriday!

5 Spinoffs You Would Love to See Get Made #5FandomFriday

This is my very first submission to 5 Fandom Friday, which I participate on through the Female Geek Bloggers Google+ Community. Every friday we have a different topic we blog about. For the 5 spinoffs I would love to see get made, I decided to limit myself to television past and present.


We are currently re-watching Chuck. I forgot what an amazing show this is. Plus doesn’t everyone kind of have a little man crush on Zachary Levi?But anyway, now instead of being a spy, Chuck must be…a father! Wouldn’t you love to see Chuck and Sarah as a normal couple trying to raise a teenager and a couple of twin toddlers. AMAZING!


Parks and Recreation is probably one of my favorite shows of all time. I love the group dynamic and how they support each other (even Jerry, in their own way). Plus I associate with Leslie Knope with mostly everything except the political aspirations; scrapbooking, planners, and general nerdiness.Since *SPOILERS* the finale never really confirmed what happens to Ben and Leslie, I would love to see them fulfill their dreams in the white house. Imagine them dealing with foreign policy (much like their model UN debacle) while their triplets run underfoot. A whole new staff will be established as hi-jinks ensue!


Many of you might give me a great big *DUH* to this next one. Of course we all want to see Firefly continue. But I like to imagine a new show where Kayleigh and Simon play house in a community space station with River as the doting aunt/ babysitter. House being haunted by the ghost of Wash would be a really plus.


Recently we finished watching through Alias for the 3rd time, and as much as I do not care for the final season, I would like there to be a spinoff of the one thing I always wanted to happen.After living peacefully on a beach somewhere, Sydney grieves the loss of Vaughn as he suffers a heart attack. Meanwhile she visit’s Marshall and his wife for play dates with the kids. Then she learns to love again in the arms of…Will Tippin. (Hey we can dream right?) But hold on there, she gets tapped back into the CIA, and even more missions, although none about Rambaldi.


This last show presented a challenge for me. It is still on the air, but maybe this is not so much a spinoff as a location change. Hank and the gang must take on a whole new challenge: Theme Park Resort Medical Concierge. Tropical location with the added benefit of people having heart attacks from roller coasters and poking their eyes out from selfie sticks. Hank can be seen frequently running in Disney5Ks while Boris contemplates purchasing a water park to house his dolphins.

Anyway, I may have been kidding about some of this, but seriously, we love the characters too much to let them go!
