Mini Post About Nothing #17: Fangirling to the Max

So this is definitely going to be a super random post about nothing, because I just came across this while doing research for a novel I’m working on.

Everyone has heard of a fangirl, right? Those crazy, obsessed people who take loving something/someone to the ultimate next level. Or the people who can scream so intensely they can break glass–and your eardrums–simultaneously.

Actually, if you think about it, it’s kind of like a superpower…

Anyhoot, Urban dictionary defines a “fangirl” as the following:

1) Fangirl

A rabid breed of human female who is obesessed with either a fictional character or an actor. Similar to the breed of fanboy. Fangirls congregate at anime conventions and livejournal. Have been known to glomp, grope, and tackle when encountering said obesessions.
Hugh Jackman: ‘ello. 
Fangirl: SQUEEEEEE! *immediately attaches to Jackman’s leg* 
Jackman: Security!
2) Fangirl
A female who has overstepped the line between healthy fandom and indecent obsession.
Fan: Hakkai from Saiyuki is really cool, he’s smart and nice and hey, he’s pretty cute. 
Fangirl: Lyke OMG!!!11!one! Hakkai iz so lke totly my huzbend! 
Fan: You DO realize he is a two dimensional image on your television screen right? 
Fangirl: NOOO!! He’z reel and he iz al myne!
3) Fangirl
1. (derogatory) a female fan, obsessed with something (or someone) to a frightening or sickening degree. Often considered ditzy, annoying and shallow.
2. (playful, good-natured) less extreme, a female fan who can laugh at their own passion for their particular interest (or even obsession).
1. Fangirl: OMG!!!1! i luv {insert celebrity’s name} to!!!!!!!!! hes got a hot ass! ive spent teh last 6 munths planin our weding!! 2. Fangirl 1: Haha, I’ve been spending too much time with my Doctor Who merchandise. Ooh, look at that lovely picture of David Tennant! *glomp* Hee hee, I’m such a fangirl! 
Fangirl 2: *manic grin* I’m a bit of a Doctor Who fangirl myself! Yeah, that is a nice pic, but I’ve got my eyes in other places… *ogles pic. of Peter Davison* 😉 
Fangirl 1: LOL, mind if I join you? 😉
It also describes fanboy as:

1. A person who is completely loyal to a game or company reguardless of if they suck or not.
2. A pathetic insult often used by fanboys themselves to try and put down people who don’t like whatever it is they like.
3. See fool or SEGA.

I just thought these things were too funny not to share. That’s it. This is me done wasting your time 🙂

G’day lovelies!

P.S. Sorry for the crap formatting, my computer keeps doing something stupid and I’m too lazy/distracted/tired to mess with it.
