5 Fandom Friday | Five Favorite Aliens

Friday, July 3

I've wanted to try The Nerdy Girlie's 5 Fandom Friday link-up for a while, but just haven't made the time. I thought it might be fun to make an effort to take part in July, so here's my first post!

It was definitely hard to narrow this list down to five, and it turned into more of a "five favorite alien loves" rather than just five favorite aliens, but I figure the prompts are open for interpretation, right?

Five Favorite Aliens


5 | Thane Krios, Mass Effect


I never cried at a video game until the moment came when my Commander Shepard had to say goodbye to her loyal friend. There's something beautiful about Thane's tortured past, and his quest to redeem himself, as much as he can. Plus, he's a badass assassin, and therefore a vital part of my ME team.

4 | Han Solo, Star Wars


I'm a fan of scruffy looking Nerf herders who might not tell you that they love you in so many words, but show their feelings in numerous other ways—from sticking around a questionable war to being willing to step aside when they think you prefer another guy. Han might not be the smartest tool in the shed (or the squeakiest, in a clean personal history sense), but he knows when to do what's right. And he's a damn good pilot ... or so we've been told.

3 | Max Evans, Roswell


From the very start of the TV show, when he saved Liv from an untimely death, I knew there was something special about the brooding and mysterious Max. His loyalty and drive to do what's right (even when that means being with Tess, UGH) are admirable. The fact that he's alien royalty—and digs Tabasco as much as I do—is just icing on the cake.

2 | Loki Laufeyson, Thor/Thor 2/The Avengers


I don't know what part of human brain chemistry makes us dig a bad boy, but no one has made me love one more than the troubled and psychopathic adopted son of Asgard. Even when he's unleashed an army on the people of Earth, one smirk and I'm ready to forgive all.

1 | The Doctor, Doctor Who


Regardless of the form he's in—although Ten is my Doctor—there's so much to love about the rogue Time Lord. He's cheeky and silly and grumpy and caring. He takes you on adventures, makes you feel all of the feels, causes you to reevaluate all that you know, and occasionally scares the crap out of you. He's not perfect, but he's amazing.

  1. The Doctor is totally #1 on my list (I love doing these!) Especially 11. I've mentioned this on other people's lists, but I didn't even think of Loki!!! I'm Pagan, so for me, Loki's a God. Marvel Loki is awesomeeee, but to be honest, he'll go on list #2 (definitely making one)! I love alien stuff.


    I'd love if you'd come check my list, but if you don't like doing so, I put: the Doctor, Thor from Stargate SG-1, E.T., Do Min-joon, and Yoda!

  10. Thank you! It was a lot of fun to write up.

    Even though I had like 20 by the time I was done, and it was hard to whittle down. ;)

  11. Right? I had so many more that I could have included. It's hard (but also good?) to have to limit yourself to five.

  12. Like I said to Alice above—I'm a-OK with people being Team Michael; that just means more Max for me. ;)
