Three times I got cockblocked by William Shakespeare and it was glorious:

The first conversation I ever had with Tom Hiddleston (see photo) was him Fangirling over the fact I had the Oxford copy of a Shakespeare book. He was very impressed and didn’t want to let it go and we had a geeky conversation about.

From this moment all my suspicions were confirmed that his one and only true love is Mr Shakespeare.

It was heartbreaking and utterly cute at the same time.

The second time I met him we hugged and spoke about his scarf, my hat and our favourite Shakespeare play.

Third time, was random after my friends and I were drunk and stumbling through Covent Garden looking for our taxi and we wast expecting Tom to be leaving at around midnight, so we were in shock when we saw him. Tom remebered my name or he remembered something that sounded extremely like my name (bare in mind I was drunk, not obliterated but merry drunk and still respectful)… And I’m pretty sure he still spoke about Shakespeare… Details are sketchy, it had been a heavy night haha!
