Yeah, my son and my daughter didn’t keep the secret but it’s ok, they’re kids and I wasn’t going to hide it from them. It’s the first time that I see that amount of interest in them about my work, so to me it feels great. I’m proud I can share this with them and they’re excited. Work has been this horrible thing in our lives that has separated us. But now, my son would be like “go to work, please!” or “go do that film, that’s amazing, and make sure you bring some toys back!
The chance to let your talent truly bossom, perhaps it’s today. Or maybe, it’s tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, or next year. Or perhaps even when you’re 30? In regards to physique, I can’t say much. But if you yourself think that you don’t have talent, then you’ll probably never have it.
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
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).
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.
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.
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
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.
(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.
OMG I absolutely love the spam you just did about that night when KD were super intimate with each other. Could you please do one on the kolon sport incident where we heard the conversation between the two of them. That was the same time when JI got caught caressing KS's ear and then got really self conscious and stopped. I love this moment and would love to hear what you say about it. Thanks ^^
Thank you for liking the spam I did previously ;-;
(credit to gif/pic owners, some of the gifs are mine)
ok so *cracks knuckles* I’m happy you asked about this moment, cuz it’s one of my faves!!
so first the vid..
I talked about this in a previous spam BUT, basically, this vid has gained attention due to the fact that nini is obviously being flirty with soo (and soo is loving the attention fyi, his eyes are all *__*). Nini switches from formal to informal language, back and forth, throughout the vid which is considered to be flirty (guys tend to do this when they’re trying to pick someone up and ppl have commented saying that just bros do not act like this or speak like this)
nini was wearing the ring in the “wrong” way, according to soo, so he decided to be cute and “scold” him for it~
NOW THIS!! The way soo calls nini babo (stupid) is SO cute!!! And nini reacts very cutely to it and goes all flirtybear mode on soo. cuz he’s all like “i’m stupid??” and you really need to watch the vid to understand fully, cuz he says it in such a flirty way T____T
you should hear the way soo giggles in the vid *cries a river* he’s SO loving the attention from nini!! (I’m screeching at this point)
Happy!soo now that nini puts on the ring right xD (intriguing how the placement of a ring can be SOINTERESTING to discuss ;))
a closer look. see the way nini looks at him? he’s tilting his head and giving those eyes…. and soo is giggling I repeat GIGGLING!!!
after some time, the photographer actually scolds them for not focusing so they have to stop flirting talking, and nini becomes super pouty cuz he wanna talk more with his baero
look at the way nini looks at him.. he just wanna talk to soo again ;;;;;
I think soo kinda feels bad for being scolded while working, so he ignores nini a bit, which makes nini go “PLS LOOK AT ME IM A SAD HEARTBROKEN PUPPY” x1000
let’s talk about ba-ek xD
ba-ek observing the flirting couple beside him (poor ba-ek tbh)
idk this guy looks a little concerned to me
not to sound too delulu (might be too late tho?), but.. ba-ek notices a camera and does look a little worried.. perhaps..maybe..yes..i..think..so..
ok so, at the same shoot, we got kaisoo chilling together once again (ofc)
Nini is rubbing soo’s ear (highly intimate), and soo’s got his arm lazily resting on nini’s leg. they look comfortable AF tbh.
BUT then they notices that a camera is filming them O__O, so suddenly they change positions to look a little less intimate, cuz now they realize that they can’t be all carefree and chill with each other..
backview.. while they were chilling by the fence you can see that nini was stroking soo’s wrist/hand (cries) at one point
