Do you realise that when all of you obsess over these men and make gifs of them you cement yourselves as fans and now have very little chance of ever actually getting to know these people? Like if you met them, they wouldn't really consider being friends/relationships with fans because you guys spend your days making gifs about them and knowing EVERYTHING about them, which would be so weird to me. what's your opinion on that? I don't mean to like hate but I am just so interested in you guys haha
When this anon starts out aggressive but quickly backtracks hmmm, okay?
I hope you realise that we make gifs because we’re fans and that’s what fans in fandoms do,,, make stuff about the things we enjoy. Are you, anon, not part of any fandom on tumblr? Because I’ve never met a person who wouldn’t jump at the chance to meet their idol (be it a youtube celebrity, an actor, or musician).
Do you honestly believe that our main wish in life is to become friends with the people we fangirl over? Because that really isn’t the case? Yes, I would love to meet Dan and Phil but I don’t think I would even attempt to be friends with them nor do I believe it is a possibility (Would I turn down the chance? No). We, as fans, know our boundaries (at least most of us do) and are content with just fangirling about our favourites on the internet.
added bonus: dan was a fan of phil before they met so like doesn’t that defeat your entire argument?
