August 04: How did you get into Spartacus/Nagron? ( [livejournal.com profile] kleinepfoetchen)

Thanks for the question Hon!

I started watching Spartacus as soon as it aired on Starz, I kept seeing the previews for it and it looked amazing!!!! My very first favorite character on there was of course Spartacus, I loved Andy, he was amazing! And I loved Varro, Jai is amazing! Then when the second half of the first season was aired and they brought on Agron (Dan), Duro, and Mira, I was soooo happy, and the 5 of them were my faves, then they go and kill off Varro, not happy, it all started to go down hill from there for my characters because I lost Duro too!!! The only comfort I had was that Sparty, Mira and Agron survived! And then the news of Andy's illness, came and I felt heartbroken, but I had hope that after a short break (this was before I knew how serious his cancer was) that he would come back to do the new season!

I really enjoyed the mini season that we got, because we got to see Gannicus and I really liked him, and he became one of my faves also (though I don't like him as well as I do my other faves)

News came that the second season was still happening, I will be honest had it not been for Argon and Mira still being characters on the show, I would have probably given up on the show, but I am so glad that I didn't because we got a new Sparty (Liam, who was amazing as Sparty) and then shortly into the second season we got Nasir (Pana is so handsome) and my hopes for Nagron were born!!! I have loved them since then!

I also got a few other fave characters in the second season, Saxa, and Donar! Love them too!

So yeah that pretty much is my story of Spartacus.Nagron love LOL If you would like to know more about the show and the actors for those that don't know much about it you can go here or here

I hope this was a good enough answer! I hope I didn't bore anyone LOL

Thanks again Hon for the question and thanks to my f-list for reading this and on to the next day we go!!! :D

There is still time to send me more questions, so please do, you can leave them in the comments here! :D

I watched it from the beginning too (mostly because I loved 300 so much) but I thought it was sooooo bad first lmao. Thankfully it got really good quickly or I would have missed out on one of my fave shows ever ♥ I'm currently re-watching Gods of the Arena btw. I already did for Blood & Sand last year or so and then I can move on to Vengeance and War of The Damned \o/
But ugh,Varro's death. That one still breaks me! I mean,we knew from Barca and Pietros that this show was not kidding around but Varro prepared me for the possibility that all my faves could die and well,almost all of my faves *did* die :(

Liam, who was amazing as Sparty

THIS! He doesn't get enough love imo. He had such a difficult task (Cynthia too) and he got so much hate but he remained a total class act and more importantly,he made Sparty his own character. Andy was great,I think we can all agree on that,but his Sparty was different. More the arrogant,broken warrior type. Liam's Sparty was more a leader,a strategist and both ~versions of Sparty were acted so well :)

Haha believe it or not I haven't watched 300 LOL. The first few episodes were a little rough around the edges but they got into the swing of things pretty quickly and they did an amazing job on it. I am glad that you didn't miss out on one of our fave ships ever too! I really need to rewatch all of them (I still need to buy the seasons) Starz I think has taken them off OnDemand right now so I have to wait until I can buy them again.

Varro's death was hard!!!! I didn't like it at all! I was prepared for all of my faves to die too, only 2 of them didn't! I was so glad they didn't kill of Nasir and Agron, I would have been broke if that had happened!!!! I lost Varro, Barca, Auctus, Pietros, Duro, Donar, Mira, Saxa, Sparty...yeah it wasn't good for my characters at all!!!! 97% of my characters got killed. :(

You're absolutely right! Liam doesn't get enough love for the amazing work that he did, and he had big shoes to fill and I am glad that he didn't try to become Andy's Sparty, I am glad that he made the character his own. Agreed about the characters! :D

So glad you enjoyed that ship so much :)
I know a lot of people did...

I wish that show was in any way appealing to me but whenever I see videos about it, all I see is sex and violence and that's not really up my alley... but it has it's audience. If it didn't, there wouldn't be a convention for the show being rather successful, so there's that :D

I loved this show so much and even more so when Nasir and Agron became a thing. The actors from this show are truly amazing. It wasn't all sex and violence but most of it was LOL If it isn't your thing it isn't your thing. LOL. I still have yet to go to any of the conventions but I will never stop loving these actors (all of them LOL) :D
