18 Thoughts You Have While Getting Sucked Into A Fandom

By  | 

A wise person once wrote, “I didn’t choose the fangirl life; the fangirl life chose me.” For every fan in the world who has had the fortune (or misfortune, depending on how you look at it) of joining a fandom, no truer words have ever been spoken. For some, joining a fandom is a conscious, calculated decision — if you love One Direction, might as well go all out, right? For others, however, a fandom sucks you in and you have zero very little control over how your mind, body and spirit react! Sounds dramatic, but it’s the cold hard truth. Whether you’re in the beginning stages of getting sucked into a fandom or you’re comfortably settled in, the following thoughts run through everyone’s heads while the process is taking place. Now ask yourself, how many of these can you relate to?
