obsessed fangirls

I seriously have no chill when it comes to liking something. When I like a song, I listen to it like 100 times on repeat. When I like a tv show, i spent the whole day watching it. When i like a person (mostly someone who doesn’t even know i exist), i search the whole internet for them, make them my lock screen and home screen background and declare that they are the most perfect person on earth.
There’s just all or nothing for me.

There are different kinds of darkness. There is the darkness that frightens, the darkness that soothes, the darkness that is restful. There is the darkness of lovers and the darkness of assassins. It becomes what the bearers wishes it to be, needs it to be. It is not wholly bad or good

Signs of falling into a fandom

So being that I am a fangirl of many different things, from books to manga to anime and series, I have come to recognize the crazy decline normal signs or stages that I follow when I fall head first into another fandom.

So, guys, here are my eight stages of being a fangirl.

Or more commonly known as the eight stages of going fandom crazy.

Stage 1

Ok so first there is the discovery – this is where you “accidentally” stumble upon another series or anime to get absorbed into watching or book or manga to spend hours reading. It usually starts with something like artwork you come across or a clip or gif of the obsession. This is usually where you get sucked into the new fandom, by the time it happens there is no chance for escape (not that we want to).

Stage 2

Now comes the beginning of addiction – now you start with your obsession. I find mine usually begin with me falling in love with one of the characters, for example with Voltron I fell in love with Keith. You start to see things and traits that you love about them and that makes them so darn cute. This is also where you start collecting random pieces of fanart to use as wallpapers on your devices and post to your blogs. Soon half your phone’s memory is filled.

Stage 3

The anime, series, or book ends and you go into denial before begging for more – Most of the time when this happens I go into a slump where I cannot function without this series or anime, I legit just rewatch the anime repeatedly till I know the lines without needing the subs. If it’s a book I go through this phase of knowing the quotes and trying to use them in everyday conversations (I also have internal debates on if I should get pieces tattooed onto myself). Also, it’s never below me to go and possible beg the author, artist or production company to bring out more.

Stage 4

Tumblr and the internet become my best friend – often the people I surround myself with don’t understand my obsessions with certain things. But people online understand. I go and stalk blogs and sites to find out every little detail about my favorite show or anime. Often just reblogging images of the anime and series or book till my whole dashboard looks like some sort of shrine (Not that I am complaining).

Official fandom member – well this step is pretty self-explanatory, right?

Stage 6

Fangirling at maximum output – this is where your obsession reaches full-frontal momentum. From fanfiction writing to imagining scenarios for characters. Photoshopping images of you and the characters from the anime, series or book is also not exactly out of the ordinary, is it? This is also where I start using my fangirl cries and mating sounds, you know the ones right? Those shrieks and grounds and sighs whenever you see any mention of that obsession or fandom.

Stage 7

(This step is optional) The unconscious ending to your obsession – sometimes you don’t even realize it, but you slowly become less obsessed with the fandom, it no longer brings those fangirling moments and you no longer reblog every single article related to the fandom. The one thing about this step though is that it never fully disappears. The love you had for the fandom. There is still a part of you that loves the fandom. You will still feel that joy whenever new exciting news about it is shared, you just no longer stalk and investigate every little detail about it. It becomes an old friend that you can return to every now and again, a place that will always be home.
