So I was at a friend’s birthday party yesterday and there roughly 20 people, half of which I didn’t know at all. But most of them real hardcore nerds probably, mostly Mtg players.
We went out to get some food together and I sat next to a 30 something year old teacher and I was nervous af because of my social anxiety and all.
Suddenly in mid conversation with someone she shouts across the table to some dude, telling him he should just ‘fucking watch Voltron because it’s such a good show.’
My anxiety was gone, I had a topic, I said too ‘yeah damn watch that show its amazing.’ We looked at each other and I asked her if she was done with Season two yet and she said yes it was amazing but she was sad about Keith and Lance not interacting as much after the second half of the season.
I’m like, yeah I hope that will happen in S3 I love them both a lot, she says “oh don’t tell me you ship them”
I’m dumbstruck at first, then tell her the only thing I do is draw Klance fanart recently and I have charms of both of them on my car keys.
She lights up immediately, says “yo same!” and we proceed to discuss characters and analyse the whole show and we ended up scrolling through my art tag and keep talking about the show the whole time, trying to explain to her boyfriend while it’s such a good show.
i dont quite know where i was going with this wall of text, but I was genuinely happy to have met a random person and be able to throw my social issues aside in an instant with geeking out about a show and characters that almost nobody around me irl really cares about all that much and just, it seemed surreal but I was very very happy.
