Member Introductions!

Post by Majinkura on Mon Jul 06, 2015 12:26 pm

ok guys so i think we needed an introduction thread of sorts for new members joining this site.

this way we can get more familiar with one another.

Name - (doesn't have to be your real name)
fav character - be it from the show/book or GN versions.
what got you in the fandom?

i'll start first.

Name - Majinkura,Majin,or Maj
Quinlan...or Vaun as he is known now...
see above,also my love for vampires (non twilight kind) brought my interests to this show.
(I saw the show first before reading the GN,and currently reading the books on and off).

now your turn!

Name - Marée
Fav character - Quinlan/Tye
What got you in the fandom? I enjoy a good, nasty vampire tale and when the vampire commandos showed up in Ep 7, I was hooked. Read the books and comics but find the show to be superior.

I'm Babywhatsyoursin, 'Baby,' and for fanfics shadowflame611, sf

Favorite characters are Quinlan (book) and now u suppose Tye...?

Started watching the show, since I'm a nerd for post-apocalyptic themed stuff. Really wasn't that interested until Tye showed up. Got me reading the books, which I found fantastic, if you ignore the plot holes. Razz Hoping that the show gets better- as it was last season I'd love to see improvement!

Have to agree with Baby - need to amend my intro to say, "I liked S1 but S2 isn't wowing me"

Name: VampireEater

Favorite characters: Vaun of course. Quinlan. Mostly book and graphic novel. Not sure if I like TV Q. He'll have to have an amazing personality. To seduce me. Don't get me wrong. Vaun is my fav, but I am a fan of other characters too.

What got me in the fandom: Vaun got me into the show. Originally. I thought The Strain was just The Walking Dead with vampires. One evening. I came upon a gif set of Vaun ( Than no one know whom he was ) and was transfixed. He was so different from the other zombie-vamps. he was dress to kill. Clean, and intelligent.  
There was no info of him on the wed. So I had to start watching the show. To see him more and get to know whom he was.

Name: Becca

Favorite Character: Vaun (show), Quinlan and probably Nora (books)

What got me into the fandom: My assistant had been up all night with her baby one night, and she had caught a few episodes on tv, and she asked me if I had seen it yet or heard of it. I hadn't, but once she explained that there were scary vampires, I was all over it.
I bought season 1, and my husband and I binge watched it. We had it completed just in time for season 2 to start.
My husband told me it was originally graphic novels, so I bought the Darkhorse hardcover books (the books are soooo nice, quality-wise), not realizing that not all the material had probably made it into hardcover yet. So, I have the fifth trade paperback book. That is what I have read through so far. The other stuff is on back order with my local comic book shop.

And then someone informed me that the story was actually a novel series, which totally blew my mind because had I known that, that is where I would have started in the first place. Now I have all three HC novels, but I haven't had a ton of time to read lately (swamped with work).

When I started watching the show, it gave me nightmares. Shows never give me nightmares. Ever.

I love that the show is being kept different from the books, however, I'm unhappy about Vaun being killed off. And not even just that they killed him off, it was the manner in which they did it and handled it. It was sloppy, awkward, and unnecessary.

Name: Bridget
Favorite Character: Dutch (I know, I know - I'm in the minority) on the show. I'm only truly familiar with the show at this point. I just began reading the first book, but college has gotten in the way of reading things I'd like to read. I do like Setrakian so far, though.
What got me into the fandom: I was invited to a party where some friends and I watched the pilot. It was actually hosted by a friend who named his dog Guillermo, so you understand how big of a fan he was. I wasn't immediately hooked, but I was interested enough to keep watching, and I got hooked somewhere around Creatures of the Night when Setrakian's group solidified. It was only a month ago that I picked up the first book, though. I was busy with other reading material.

I've been making corny little fan videos on YouTube for the TV series. I'll have to post them somewhere on this forum if you guys want to see them. What I really want to do is sculpt custom Funko Pop figurines for the characters that aren't represented officially (like Fet or Dutch or even Nora,) but I have these hand tremors that make that kind of artwork next to impossible, so I try to use other mediums.

Name - Jenn
fav character - I have more than one.. Vaun and Quinlan.

I had been watching the show since the start because it helped me with the lull between waiting for Game of Thrones, Walking Dead and Pretty Little Liars. I thought it looked interesting and next thing I knew, I was hooked.
