I don’t like the concept of fangirling. I think when you like an artist or a band enough to copy their trends and watch their videos and attend their concerts, it’s past fangirling. It’s respect. It’s inspiration. The feeling when you realise you’re breathing the same air as them, when you put on a new plaid shirt, or when you damage your wallpaper sticking posters up. When you pre-order an EP, or the feeling of listening to new songs. I hate it, I hate it when people say ‘You’re just a fangirl. You only like them because they’re hot” because no. You grow to like them as people once their music fills your longing ears, and once you’ve heard what you’ve been looking for, your taste, your style in music, you can’t go back, and you don’t want to. You meet people through things like this, and I refuse to take any other suggestion, because music saves lives. Now that. If fucking fantastic.
