Imagine 10, 20 or 30 years from now… and all your favorite youtubers are living different lives away from youtube, social media, away from the internet. Your life is different also, since they left the internet for good, you also left the internet because you already have a family and definitely have more responsibilities now.
Then imagine one day, maybe at a grocery store, you saw one of your favorite youtuber… then you remember all the internet feels. You remember your teenage years, the time you spent on youtube just watching their videos, at tumblr reblogging their gif and at twitter reading their tweets. You Remembered the fandom that became your instant bestfriends, the ships, the otp’s! The fanfictions you wrote! The fanfictions you read that broke your heart! You remembered how much it brought you so much joy, inspiration and comfort in your little room.
The nostalgia was too much that out of nowhere, water from your eyes touched your cheeks. You didn’t think about it but you approached your favorite youtuber and hugged her! You hugged her tight and whispered two simple words:

When you let go, you immediately turned your back and You didn’t want to see her reaction. You weren’t able to see her face, You didn’t saw her smile. You didn’t saw her cry a little.
You got back to your car, then your kid asked: Who was that mom? You still can’t believe what happened. You were still overwhelmed with the feels coming back.
