Clearly people underestimate the painful realities of having friends in a fandom. On occassion, it’s akin to stepping on legos covered in hot wax, nails, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and cat claws.
It’s painful, dangerous, and one rough road to travel-now I’m not saying it’s all flaws, but what I’m saying, is here’s what it’s like to have fangirl/fanboy friends.
1. Their’s no off button. Non stop. All Day. Every day. Like your love for breathing, is their love for Percy Jackson. Stopping them is lethal, and impossible. Fatallities have been reported. No one has lived to tell the tale of trying to stop someone part of a fandom.
2. Having a normal conversation with them is IMPOSSIBLE.
“Hey, you know, I’m just feeling kinda cruddy today. My pet died and-”
“I can’t believe he’s dead.”
“I know, it just happened so fast.”
“I was in love with him.”
“I-I’m sorry?”
3. Crushing is not normal.
At all.
Ever.
For whatever reason, if you’re friend has a crush on one of their favorite characters, you’re going to have to be a good friend, and help them through this lengthy mourning process. Because, let’s face it, their favorite character is either taken, or dies. From there on out, they will never be able to lead a normal life.
4. Shipping.
It’s not matchmaking-it’s creepier.
And if your friend is part of a fandom, then it’s in their DNA.
And unfortunately, this does not resort only in their world, but rather, in everyone’s world. Including you and the person you hate.
—–CURSE YOU ROMANCE STORIES. YOU HAVE CREATED MONSTERS.———-
5. The Referances.
They.Never.Ever.End.
Ever.At.All.
I’m not going to ellaborate.
You’ll know.
6. Buying Presents is easier.
Slightly.
Because they may or may not have the Huffle Puff Mug, but you don’t know, because when you enter their room, you can’t find your way around. Not that they won’t love it anyway, not because of you’re their friend, or the thought that counts, but the meere factor that it goes into their collection.
7. Disagreeing is deadly.
Never disagree with a Fandom Member.
They don’t have friendly sparing matches, they attack.
They are secretly Trojan War Horses.
Be careful who you let in.
8. You are going to see the movie or show, or read the books at least one point, because you need them to stop bugging you.
Good luck with that.
Because one episode will lead to another.
And another.
And another.
And another.
And what can I say that you’ve either become intoxicated,
Or
Welcome to the Dark Side.

Okay! So is this true? Any fandom friends? Are you a fandomer?
I’m not as hard core as some, but let’s just say…
If Stalking Jack the Ripper has a fan club, I’m in.
Stay Ginchy,
