“SO I'M LIKE REALLY TIRED AND WEIRD AND IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA TO KISS MY CUT OUT. SO THERE I AM, ON MY KNEES IN FRONT OF KING CANDY BECAUSE HE'S SO FUCKING SHORT, AND THEN I JUST GOT REALLY NERVOUS AND PANICKED AND HUGGED HIM INSTEAD AND THEN LIKE SCAMPERED AWAY BLUSHING AND NOW I CAN'T MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH HIM. THIS IS HOW BAD I AM AT SOCIAL INTERACTIONS. I CAN'T EVEN KISS FICTIONAL CHARACTERS. ”—Deadly
I've always been an advocate of "You choose when you're a fan and you can't define a ~~true~~ fan"
But even so, I’m now feeling nervous declaring that I’m in a new fandom because I think people are going to judge me.
So many people call new fans fake, or just after their looks, or whatever and I don’t want to have to justify my reason….but I feel the need to.
There is so much “You didn’t care when they debuted but now they’re all sexy you’re all over them” on my dash it makes me worry when I want to come out as a new fan.
It’s unfair, I’ve been in kpop for over a year and I feel like this? I can’t imagine how very new kpop fans must feel.
It’s like…”How long do I have to like a band to be a true fan?” “How much do I need to know about the members until I can be a true fan?” is running through my head.
Meh. Even after saying that, I’m a fan of who I like and love and you shouldn’t be able to define that and it’s unfair that people’s elitism have made other people feel this way.
