y'all…….. we need one of those Mythical Meet-ups or something… not actually physically meeting up with one another, but just one of those fandom things where we can each post a selfie or something, along with our names and a bit about who we are and how we found Rhett & Link, just so we can all get to know each other. I want to see how diverse of a community we are!
(aaand we can all make more friends within the fandom)
Hey all you lovely Mythical Beasts!!
I’m Halle (dis me^) and I am 20 years old! [she/her]. I have been a Mythical Beast since 2012 when I found Rhett and Link after they were in a video with Grace Helbig. I quickly watched every GMM episode that I had missed (I think they were in season 2 or 3 when I joined the fandom); I also went back and watched all of GMCL and the majority of their other content.
RandL and their content has helped me through so much… when I first started watching I had just gone through my first heartbreak and was pretty torn up about and watching GMM that summer really brightened my spirits. The show and the boys also helped me get through the really tough times in high school and my constant battles with chronic migraines (which I still suffer from to this day). Like I said, I have been a fan since 2012 but became the really devoted fan that I am today in the past two or three years maybe? My anxiety was the worst it had ever been my senior year of high school and the beginning of college to present day, so watching Rhett and Link during those times have helped me so much. They helped me get through one of the hardest years of my life (2016, this past school year) when I lived alone and struggled immensely with my health, anxiety, and even some depression while working and trying not to fail my classes. Anyways, I’ve always been able to find happiness and laughter in their content even when I couldn’t find it in my own life, and I am forever grateful for that. And so my love has continued to grow for them and has become what it is now as their content has continued to lift my spirits during the darkest parts of my life.
I also have them to thank for meeting one of my now favorite people ( @belve-dang ), who I can honestly say will probably be one of my best friends for life. Me and Viv ( @belve-dang) are meeting Rhett and Link in December at their Orlando stop on the Tour of Mythicality. Also, thanks to the inspiration we have gotten from RandL the two of us have started a YouTube channel.
I really don’t know what else to add. It is so hard to put into words how thankful I am for Rhett and Link and this beautiful community of Mythical Beasts. But I am just so grateful to be a member of this fandom and to be here to support Rhett and Link. I can’t wait to meet my idols in December ahhhh!!!
Also, I love all of you so feel free to message me to talk about anything!!!! I also really love twenty one pilots, Jon Bellion, Grace Helbig, Doctor Who…. and lots of other stuff so feel free to talk to me about other fandoms you are a part of!! ❤️❤️❤️ @mythicalmeetup
Hi fellow Mythical Beasts! My name is Liz! I am 28, bi, married, with a 4 year old stepdaughter and my first baby on the way! I don’t remember exactly when I started watching GMM but I became obsessed pretty quickly! I am meeting RandL for the first time this December at the Chicago show for the Tour of Mythicality. I can’t freaking wait (but I’m also insanely nervous)! When I’m not watching RandL related things, or reading Rhink fic, or spending hours on Tumblr, I like watching scary movies, playing video and board games, reading books and comics, and playing with all my pets (1 dog, 2 cats, and a bearded dragon)! Always up for more Mythical friends to have RandL discussions with so feel free to add me or send me asks/msgs!
