We’re definitely due to talk about FANGIRLS.
I have again made another quiz (it’s at the bottom) since the last one went over tolerably well. YES, BEHOLD MY GENIUS!**
* It is a secret, right?!
** “Erudite complex” is a phrase here which means I put people in factions.
*** I’m awfully humble, don’t you think?
1. THE BANSHEE
You get so so excited. And we’re not talking about a little squeak, we’re talking about outright HOLLERING. You love the fandom life. You love the actors. YOU LOVE EVERYTHING. And why should you smush that passion in a box? Let it out! Shout long and clear! You’ve been known to jump up and down. They can hear you shouting at your OTP from across the universe. BUT WHO CARES?! You have fun. That’s what’s important.
2. THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF WEIRDNESS
You know everything. EVERYTHING. There is no bounds to your knowledge about a show or book or movie. You know how the idea began, you know what happened on set, you’ve seen like every interview of ever. You remember all the episodes and you can spout off quotes without batting an eyelash. If someone can’t remember that little detail — PAUSE EVERYTHING — you’ve got this.
3. THE CREATIVE CRUMPET
You know those fanfics? The gifs? The fanart? The music videos? YOU ARE THE ONE BEHIND THEM. It’s not enough for you to watch/read…you need to create to show your love. Everyone might as well bow down to you know, too, because without you, what would the untalented fans pin on Pinterest? HMM??
4. THE REPEAT OFFENDER
Some people watch a show or read a book…once. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT. Everyone misses sooo much the first time! Rereads are needed! You’ve seen your favourite show a million times. You’re on your fifth reread of that adorable scene in your favourite book. ONCE IS NEVER ENOUGH.
5. THE RECRUITER
Fandom life is fun and all….but not when you’re aloooone. SO! You like to convert people. You basically spam your friends with gifs and quotes and soliloquies on heartbreaking character development. You blog about your favourite fandom a LOT. And when your friends do sneak over to your dark side, you are there every step of the way. Now you can throw more gifs at them! Introduce them to the perfect pieces of fanfic. These little newbie fans need to be nurtured and YOU ARE THERE. (You’re also laughing at their pain because you’re a veteran and these greenies are having their hearts ripped on for the first time. Adorable.)
6. THE CLOSET NERD
No one knooooows the extent of your obsession. THEY DO NOT. Sure they know you like That Fandom, but they don’t know you’ve read all the books, have 12 tee shirts with different fandom slogans, you can recite favourite episodes, and you make fandom food constantly. You just don’t want to be…weird. Okay?! You don’t have any In-Real-Life friends who would understand anyway, so you don’t want to freak them out.
7. THE PART-TIME FAN
Obsession isn’t your motive when watching shows/movies and reading. You enjoy it, but you’re not going to name yourself The #1 Fan. You’re happy to watch an episode in your spare-time, or catch up on a series when all the books are out. You get excited! You totally do! But you’ve got other interests to balance with the fandom life.
8. THE FANDOM COLLECTOR
Why be in one fandom when you can be in A BILLION FANDOMS?!! The more the merrier, right?! Plus when your favourite show goes on hiatus for 9 years or your favourite author goes AWOL when they’re supposed to be writing a new book, you have something to fill in the gaps. Plus you get ALL the fandom references.
9. THE SUBTLE STALKER
You’re not the “creepy” stalker kind who lurks behind bushes. You are the kind that will sit on a comfy cushion and watch EVERY. SINGLE. THING your favourite actor stars in. Or is a side-kick. Seriously, if they have a 2 second cameo, you’ll watch it. You also know about their family life (what?! You just read interviews and watch conventions panels, normal stuff.) and your pinterest has photos of your favourite actors out-of-costume. You totally love how adorable they are when not acting which makes you love their acting even more.
10. THE OFFENDED DEFENDER
You’ve donned the armour of righteous indignation because NO ONE INSULTS YOUR FANDOM AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. You don’t care what happens in the show/book, you will defend your favourite characters till
their your last breath. They can do no wrong. (Oh pfft, yes they make dumb decisions, but these characters are your babies. You always forgive your babies.) If someone insults your fandom, you have every right to slap them in the face with a soggy pickle.
And I have made a quiz!
This is the second quiz I’ve made with PlayBuzz, but let’s be honest: I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m deathly curious to know if it works or is a catastrophe! (If it doesn’t show up below, you can find it here too.)
which type do you identify with most?! did i miss any?! add to my list in the comments. and ohhh how did you go on the quiz? WHAT DID YOU GET? was the quiz wildly wrong or right?
Cait @ Paper Fury
…is basically The Fandom Collector. Seriously, why read one book when YOU CAN READ THEM ALL?! She has more “favourites” than she can possibly list. Although, to be honest, her number one fandom is always going to be Supernatural. Currently she’s reading Alice and the Fly which is incredible and NOT narrated by Alice. (Weird.)
