RIP Carrie Fisher, most known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars Franchise

Harry Potter Fandom, raise you wands.

Star Wars Fandom, raise you light sabers.

Hunger Games Fandom, raise you salute.

Outsiders Fandom, raise you drinks.

Sandlot Fandom, raise your baseball mits and bats.

Orange Is The New Black Fandom, raise your makeshift shanks,

Avatar The Last Airbender Fandom, raise your cabbages.

American Horror Story Fandom, raise your latex kink suit.

And every other fandom I missed, raise your most memorable element in the complete honour of yet another fallen hero. I am someone who has never seen the Star Wars films but still feel this loss pretty heavily. May her spirit guide all of our fandoms in the direction of caring hospitality towards one another.

The Sandlot (1993)

You’re killing me Smalls! These are s'more’s stuff! Ok, pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the 'mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good! Try some!

There was only one night game a year. On the 4th of July, the whole sky would brighten up with fireworks, giving us just enough light for a game. We played our best then because, I guess, we all felt like the big leaguers under the lights of some great stadium. Benny felt like that all the time. We all knew he was gonna go on to bigger and better games, because every time we stopped to watch the sky on those nights like regular kids, he was there to call us back. You see, for us, baseball was a game. But for Benjamin Franklin Rodriguez, baseball was life.
