The Fandom Friday is a weekly feature, with each blog post written by a new contributor.
This is the weekly post where either myself, or a guest blogger, talks about a new fandom. See, I’ve had the experience in my life where I’ve been made fun or put down about my particular fandoms. And that has made me feel pretty crappy. But I’ve also put down other fandoms as well.
So I’ve decided to change that. I’m opening my world up to new fandoms, and the best way to do that is to bring people in to write about various fandoms. I’m very excited about this segment.

This week’s guest blogger is Sylvia from FanGirlFeeels and iFandoms Collide, and she’s going to talk to us about
American Horror Story!
Produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, American Horror story is an Anthology Series that Changes plots and characters with every season. Currently there are two seasons that have aired and one in the production of filming.
The first Season is titled American horror Story : Murder House, a family who moves into a house on Murder Row which is haunted by its former Owners

The third season will air this fall titled American Horror Story: Coven, Not Much is said about the story line but we know there will definitely be Witches ;)
“I sorta feel like for the third version I want to do something that’s a little bit more ‘evil glamour.’ Just something that’s a little bit more…one of the things that I missed this season was I really loved having that Romeo and Juliet youth story with Violet and Tate [from the first season]. I want something like that again and we’re doing something like that in the third season. And we’re contemplating shooting the show in a different place. We’re contemplating shooting it in a place in the country where true horror has been.” Ryan Murphy (on the Third season Coven)
I started watching in the middle of the first season when my friend insisted that I watch it. He is my “TV Buddy” We recommend TV shows to each other and discuss them after each episode. I know that sounds really geeky…It’s like a book club but with TV shows. He summarized the Show for me and it sounded quite interesting but because of the Horror Genre I was a bit hesitant at first, once I gave it a chance I could not stop watching.
I took a bus to LA with a couple friends and saw the house where they film the first season. The experience was Unreal.
Ryan Murphy does an incredible job on this show. The story line is beautifully written. He goes to really disturbing places and it’s gross and insane and Fantastic! I think what really gets me is that humans are capable of all the evil going on in the show. The Cast is Brilliant! & Good to look at *Swoon* (Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters) I cannot say enough about the cast. Although they slightly change for each season, all cast members do amazing things with their characters. They know how to push each them to their limit without going overboard. The Makeup artist and Costume designers are incredible. I don’t know how they do it but WOW! So great!
“You want people to be a little bit off balance afterwards.” Falchuk
And that is Exactly what this show does to you.
I recommend everyone give this show a chance. I love that you can start with any season and still be in sync. So if you haven’t watched AHS start with the season that is most interesting to you. Murder house?, Asylum?, Coven? I promise you will not be disappointed.
