Okay, so this friday we were asked to give an oral presentation about a social phenomena and we had to bring a powerpoint presentation with info , images, videos and all that schist for my social studies class so being the hardcore fangirl I am, I decided to make my presentation about fandoms and I used as an example the PJO and HoO fandom. I brought some of Viria, Blurdge and Minuiko’s artwork, some of TheSibyllineBooks fanfictions (of course giving them all the credit) and many many many posts about feels. I also brought a dictonary to fangirl language in which I explained the meaning of things like “feels” and ”I can’t even”, and I talked for about 10 minutes about how Rick Riordan was the greatest troll to walk on earth and the debate in the fandom if we should hug him and thank him for the books or just hit him with a hammer for every feel he broke.
When I was finished everyone started clapping and the teacher even stood up and thanked me because now she finally understood what her daugther spent all of the hours she was locked up in her room doing and she gave me an A! But here comes the best part, this guy who I had a crush on since forever came up to me and told me that although what I talked about was pretty insane, it seemed pretty cool and, wait for it….HE ASKED ME OUT!
So I have to thank you PJO fandom you have made me a nervous wreck but you’ve also given me an A and a date which is much more than what the other fandoms have done for me, yes I’m looking at you Potterheads, Directioners, Nerdfighters, Mixers, Tributes, Shadowhunters…(they’re so many I could go on for centuries but I’ll drop it here). So to end this with class THE DEMIGODS RULE!!!!!!!!!!
