Happy Tuesday, book friends! The weather is back down in the 40s here in PA, and I am feeling the lack of sunshine and warmth. I know it’ll be warm again soon, but for now, back to snuggling under the blankets.
This week’s Top 5 Tuesday is an interesting one–top five fan theories (ideally from books, but also TV or movies). Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.
Now, I know I’m aware of some wild fan theories, because they are super fun, but as soon as I read the prompt they all flew out of my brain. Let’s see what I can remember upon reflection…
Remus Lupin and Sirius Black Are in a Romantic Relationship
This is one of my favorite fan theories from the Boy Wizard fandom, because I feel like it makes a ton of sense.
The Old Woman in the Beginning of Ratatouille is the Food Critic’s Mom
Honestly, I don’t even consider this a fan theory. This is just true. Remy learns to cook from her cookbooks, and his ratatouille tastes just like Anton’s mothers. Facts.
Wanda Didn’t Actually Die at the end of Multiverse of Madness
Okay, this is kind of my personal theory but I’m confident other people are in it with me. My MCU opinion is that if we didn’t see it happen, we can’t assume it did. We saw a puff of red, but that could mean a lot of things. I think we’ll see Wanda again.
I am over here wracking my brain and trying to remember other cool fan theories I’ve heard, and I am honestly coming up with nothing. I know as soon as I read other posts I’ll be mad I couldn’t remember more interesting theories, but… this is what I’ve got.

These are fun, especially the Remus/Sirius one!
I used to hate the WolfStar ship, but it’s grown on me in the past years. Sirius is my favorite character from that series, so I was very stupidly overprotective of him LOL
I totally agree that Wanda didn’t die!! If I don’t see an actual body, then I don’t believe it for a second (especially if it’s a character I love to much to watch die!!)
I don’t remember much from the Multiverse of Madness, but I think you’re right–I doubt Wanda is dead. I especially hope she’s not because I felt that movie did her dirty and the writing was so full of plot holes. It was an entertaining movie but I remember having to excuse myself for a break because I was rolling my eyes at some things lol…wish I could remember what.
These days I’m not really all that familiar with fan theories. I know there are a lot floating around about the Sarah J. Maas-iverse, but I haven’t read the Throne of Glass series or the Crescent City series yet, so I’ve been avoiding all those spoilers.
Definitely agree! I loved the movie and getting to see a woman just be powerful and scary AF, but it definitely didn’t treat Wanda properly. All that growth in WandaVision just got erased and she deserves better.
I don’t really get the fan theories thing. I think I am just too old and not imaginative enough.
I think it tends to be a part of online fandom culture more than anything, so if you’re not embedded in those communities it definitely is weird!
