Things I have learned from being in fandoms

Tom Hiddleston: Enjoy yourself and try to do what makes you happy, not what pleases others

Benedict Cumberbatch: Smart is the new sexy

Ben Whishaw: there is beauty everywhere, you just have to look harder

Jennifer Lawrence: you can’t impress everyone, so why try?

Cloud Atlas: Everything is connected.

Sherlock: Everyone needs a companion, even a highly functioning sociopath

Doctor Who: Be the one to speak up or take action. Everyone is important.

Supernatural: family first

Hunger Games: you are a role model for someone, act like it

Phantom of the Opera: you can’t force someone to love you

Star Trek: sometimes you have to break the rules
