No one truly understands fandoms unless you’re in one.

You don’t truly understand the feeling of pure excitement when something new is on it’s way, or how warm you feel inside when you know other people in the world feel the same way you do for the same reasons.

You don’t truly understand the stress of long waits and the relief when the wait finally ends, or the mixed emotions you go through when something was written so well that it pulls chords on every heartstring.

You don’t truly understand the overwhelming feeling of attending a Con for the first time, or for all the times after that, or the hours and hours of work that go into finding the right materials to pull together the cosplay you’ve dreamed of doing since you first saw that character.

You don’t truly understand the joy of finally putting on that full costume and becoming that character just for a few hours, or the slight sense of sadness when you put it away again.

You don’t truly understand how much each actor, writer, director or artist will mean to you until you’ve found one that just strikes something in you, or how it feels to find an episode or book or film that you’ll read or watch over and over again without ever getting bored of.

You don’t truly understand what it feels like to make friends from all over the world because you met on a social media fanpage created for your fandom, or how it’ll feel to spend hours talking in hopes maybe some day you can meet in person for the first time to really share your experiences.

You don’t truly understand the effort and all the hard work that goes into the fan-created content, from photo and video edits right down to the hand made drawings and paintings, the stories and the parodies.

You don’t truly understand any of the indescribable feelings you feel until you’ve found a fandom.

You don’t truly understand the sense of belonging you feel no matter what background you come from, or the sense of having a family that you found all on your own.

You don’t truly understand fandoms unless you’re in one.

dear alexander;

lams rewrite of dear theodosia, inspired by this post from @transboypippin

i did this partly bc i’m hamiltrash, and partly bc i didn’t particularly feel like doing my homework- and, hey, what better way to waste time, than crying over dead revolutionaries who were definitely in love w each other sorry i don’t make the rules

[LAURENS]
Dear Alexander, what to say to you?
Look at those eyes,
The way you say my name.
When you came into my world you smiled…
And you stole my heart.

I’m dedicating every day to you,
Domestic life has never been your style-
But, you smiled-
You knocked me out, I fell so hard,
And I know it wasn’t smart.

We will fight to wake this young nation,
We’ll bleed and fight because,
It’ll make it right for us.
If we lay a strong enough foundation,
We’ll see the battle through,
I will do it for you,
And we’ll blow them all away.

Someday, someday…
Yeah, we’ll blow them all away,
Someday, someday…

[HAMILTON]
Oh, Laurens, when you smile I am undone,
My John,
I’m so far gone-
Love’s clearly the word I’m looking for,
I feel so much more inside me, now.

Oh, Laurens, you outshine the morning sun,
My John,
When you smiled…
I fell so hard-
And I thought I was so smart.

I’ve never felt this before.

[LAURENS]
I’ve never felt this before.

[HAMILTON]
I swear, that I’ll stick around for you.

[LAURENS]
I’ll stick around for you.

[HAMILTON]
I know they’ll call us insane,

[LAURENS]
I will shield you from the pain,

[BOTH]
I’ll make the world safe and sound for you.

We will fight to wake this young nation,
We’ll bleed and fight because,
It’ll make it right for us.
If we lay a strong enough foundation,
We’ll see the battle through,
Did you know I love you?
And we’ll blow them all away.

Someday, someday,
Yeah, we’ll blow them all away,
Someday, someday.

Kristy Muscolino’s Baby Shower 4-8-17

It's Complicated - Part 2

Yes, this is the second part of the Cooperfeld thing I wrote in the middle of the night last night. It’s turning into Karmy though. Like I said it would.

If you haven’t read the first part –> [Part 1]

“Did you just come out of Lauren’s room?” Karma asked meeting Amy at the top of the staircase with a confused expression plastering her face.

“Did I?” Amy asked her eyes still wide she glanced behind in and realised she had in fact come out of the wrong bedroom.

“Oh, I did! Yeah, I was just…torturing her” Amy nodded and Karma just looked at her still just as confused as before.

“And I wasn’t invited?” Karma asked and Amy ran a hand through her hair still trying to let this situation settle in her head.

“It was kind of spontaneous” Amy nodded “Shall we go downstairs?”

Karma ignored her question watching Amy’s face carefully she noticed a small smudge of pink on the side of her face.

“So you blew me off to hang around your house so you could spontaneously torture your step sister?” Karma asked tilting her head to the side, her hazel eyes remaining fixated on Amy.
