okay but can we just talk about how the stranger things cast is the same age as their characters?? like hollywood always tries to cast actors older than the characters they play but these kids ACTUALLY ARE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS and it’s beautiful
So I met Shannon Purser today at MS Comic Con. When Shannon asked my name for the autograph and I said Blake, she complimented my name. I didn’t shut up about it. All day, my friend heard me talking about it.
Later on, I went and told Shannon how much it means to me that she complimented my name. I explained I’m trans, and I don’t have the support of my parents or anything. They refuse to call me Blake, and then there she was, complimenting the same name. After I told her this, she hugged me and said she was proud of me, and I was pushing back tears. I legitimately almost cried.
Shannon Purser is a literal gift, and I’ve never felt so blessed. This is the best convention experience I’ve ever had.
