17 Things Fangirls Do


Fangirls are scary, scary humans. We all know this.

It's a horrifying thought, I know, but have you ever stopped to consider that you might be a fangirl? It's important that you make sure. In this post, I will be identifying the symptoms of this mania to help you decide whether or not you have this problem.

So, without further ado:

1. You use the phrases "I ship it", "The feels!", and "I can't even!" in your everyday conversations.


2. You have a Pinterest board and/or a Tumblr blog dedicated to one of your fandoms.



3. You squeal or flail when your OTP does something cute.

 
 

4. You know what an OTP is.



5. You've had actual fights over which Avenger is the best.


6. You know that using all-caps is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE.


7. You feel inexpressible pain when your favorite web-series ends.


8. You exaggerate. Big time.


9. You have so many crushes on fictional boys that you can't even count them all anymore.


10. You own fandom merch. 


11. You know what fanfiction is, and you either write it, read it, or run away from it as fast as you can.


12. You have a hard time keeping calm when a favorite author retweets or favorites your tweet.
 

13. Your favorite people don't even know you exist.


14. You literally scream when a book ends in a cliffhanger.

 
15. You get angry when other fangirls ship the wrong ship.


16. Your greatest fear is series finales.


17. You have so many feels. So. Many.



Still unsure of where you stand on the Fangirl Chart? Here's a helpful guide.

If None of these relate to you: Great news! You are not a fangirl! Your life must be so very comfortable...

If 1 - 6 of these relate to you: Hmm, looks like you have a bit of a problem. You are certainly showing some symptoms. Don't worry, it's not too serious - as long as you keep it in check.

If 7 - 12 relate: FANGIRL ALERT. Things are getting out of hand, I'm afraid. The good news is that it's not too late to start working on your problem. Just remember - conceal, don't feel. Don't let them know.

If you relate to 13 - 17 of these: I am sorry. I am so, so sorry.


Later, everybody! I'm off to go marathon a couple of web-series and add a couple more hundred pins to my Doctor Who board!

love,
Hannah

  2. My diagnosis says I'm a fan girl. :) I started laughing when I read the symptoms because they really described me and my feels.

  3. I'm pretty sure, like, 18/17 of these apply to me.

  4. Haha, good post, Hannah. I got about 6 or 7, so I'm doing okay! :P

  5. Eh. Not bad. I got ten of them. I'm usually a quieter kind of fangirl, which I'm perfectly fine with. I can definitely relate to all of the above involving feels. My feels take a beating regularly, haha. The only ones I don't do are the ones involving shipping and OTPS. Nope.

    Great post!

  7. I am not any of those! There are some things I really do like, but I don't think I am that much of a fangirl. I am too much a dreamer.

    1. That's awesome, you know - I love seeing how everyone relates to or is different from the "typical fangirl" I described.

  8. I'm not a loud fangirl... most of the time. I do scream OTP a lot though... (that Agony gif though... the feels, man. The feels! Feels on fleek!)

  10. Yeeeeesh... I barely still fit in the 7-12 fangirl category. But I can't help it! I have so many feels and I ship stuff, and I. Just. Can't. Even!!!
    This post made me laugh and then groan at the fact that I will probably never stop being a fangirl. I feel so sorry for my future children if I ever have any... Hopefully they'll all be fangirls/boys and won't be embarrassed. XD

  15. Absolutely hilarious post Hannah! I see myself in so many of these - I can't count the number of times I've squealed about OTPs, fangirled in all caps or used the phrases "I ship it", "The feels!", and "I can't even!" in everyday conversation. Glad to know I'm not alone! ;) Love the GIFs and thanks for the wonderful, entertaining post! <33

    1. My DW OTP? Hmm...good question! I'd have to say 10/Rose and Amy/Rory. Also 11/Me. :D Wait so you ship 12 and Clara? Wow! I'm guessing Danny wasn't a fave...

      Delete
