The Villains Throne: Jareth

Fellow villain lovers; gather! It is time again to come together and pick out a beautiful baddie to talk about. After our last villain, who was a total creep fest, I decided it was a good time to pick one of the greats to gush over this month. This month we are going to go deep into a magical place with twist and turns and we may not make it out alive: the 1980’s! AH! Jokes aside our villain does live in a twisty turney upside down world; the Labyrinth. Hold on to your tight pants, check on your little brothers and remember you have no power over me, this month we are talking about The Goblin King himself; Jareth.

The Villains Throne: Erik Destler

It’s February, time to get romantic! If your idea of romance is to go around killing people to impress the woman you think is pretty neat, then our next villain might just be the guy for you! Erik Destler is the name given to the horribly disfigured physically and emotionally version of the Phantom in the 1989 movie The Phantom of the Opera.

The Villains Throne: President Snow

Happy New Year everyone! It’s time to dig into a new year and a new villain. While picking the first villain of the year I turned to events happening in the news. The political climate is heating up and people around the world are gearing up for what is promising to be an interesting year. Debates will be held, elections will happen and a new leader will be chosen. Like or not, it is campaigning season and why not chose a villain who fits the bill. Let us venture to the Capital itself, to the President’s mansion and say hello to President Snow.
WARNING: I spoil things, if you don’t want to know stuff don’t read any further!

Planet Earth is Blue

DavidBowie-portrait Fangirls, we lost a great one. I was having trouble falling asleep last night when I decided to open my computer up and stream some Netflix to lull me to sleep. Instead what I came across was an article announcing the passing of David Bowie, a music icon, fashion powerhouse and everyone’s favorite Goblin King. I stared at the screen convinced it was a hoax and quickly googled for confirmation. Sadly, it was true and this legend has left us at the age of sixty-nine after an eighteen month battle with cancer surrounded by his family.

Why Star Wars is So Important

With the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens there’s been a lot of excitement (understatement) about continuing the Star Wars franchise. Picking up where the original three movies left off, the new Star Wars introduced a whole new cast of characters to fall in love with and new story lines to unfold in front of our eyes. There’s a whole generation about to fall in love with Star Wars all over again, and as a lifelong Star Wars nut, it’s really exciting. However there are some out there, I’m sure you’ve seen them, who aren’t so excited for the new Star Wars movies. They’re on your social media pages talking about how they don’t care about Star Wars or have never seen the movies or find it weird that people can be so excited about it. Well this article is dedicated to those people. Sit on down children, I’m about to tell you why Star Wars is so important.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas tree is up, the menorah is lit and the bells are ring ting tingling too! It is lovely weather to discuss another villain! Keeping in pace with the holiday season I decided to choose a villain that is filled with the holiday spirit. Well, at least in the end he is. It’s time to visit the top of Mt. Krumpet and stop in on our friend, the Grinch!

Fangirl Wishlist: Rose

It’s the most wonderful time of the year fellow fangirls and fanboys! The time of year where we all reflect on the past year and be thankful for what we have, and then wish for more! But seriously what is more exciting than filling out a wish list? It’s become a pastime of mine, it’s like pre-shopping. There’s no commitment, just wishing for the pretty things you see on your screen. Anyway, this is my first year doing the wish list here at Fan Girls Are We and I am excited to see what my fellow writers are wishing for this year.
Now my wish lists are vast and varied but to fit with the theme I narrowed it down to some very geektastic items and tried to pick a couple of fun categories. Maybe I will inspire some of you out there to add to your wish lists! Let’s get started!
