Hi Beat Breakfast Panel! This year I started high school, and like everyone else I met new people. This one girl in particular that I am close friends with, is very bubbly, happy and social. (let’s call her Becky) Me on the other hand, I am not. I’m the fangirl of the grade and I’m very reserved. I don’t gossip about my life to anyone and everyone. I am also defensive over the fandoms I am part of and the and idols that I like.
First it started with Twenty One Pilots. She DM’ed me picture of Tyler from 2012 saying how she now ‘LOVES’ Twenty One Pilots now. And she bought their album. But she only listened to the song ‘Stressed Out’. I was a little annoyed because she was very quick to say ‘I LOVE THEM’ when she didn’t know squat about them but their names. I didn’t think much of it I was sure it was going to pass by. And I was right she forgot about them a week later.
Then she decided to move on to Fall Out Boy. I have another friend who also likes F.O.B and that friend is the one who introduced ‘Becky’ to them. And again she texted me saying things like ‘OMG PETE IS SO CUTE’. So, I decided to play a little prank on her. I sent her a bunch of meme’s and posts that are false facts about Twenty One Pilots to throw her off. And she believed it ALLLLLLL. But soon after she forgot about the band.
And she also did the same with ‘KianAndJc” (a youtube channel)
And now it brings us to today. Recently I started watching Supernatural (a TV show that started way back in 2005) and now I’m at Season 5. Today she snap chatted me saying ‘Hey what season of supernatural are you on’. Immediately I knew what was about to happen but I answered ‘season 5. why?’ and she replied with ’cause I’m starting the series’.
This girl is the fakest fan I’ve ever met and trust me I’ve dealt with a lot of fake fans. I don’t want to go back to school to hear her be like ‘OMG DEAN IS SO CUTE BUT SAM IS SOOO EWWWWW’ it irritates me so much and I have a feeling that this time that she won’t stop watching the series. I would also like to add how she is, in general, a fake person. Not just because she’s a fake fangirl but because she said ‘We are so best friends’ after a week of knowing each other. And ‘I love the LGBTQ+ community’ then she calls someone a F***** or she says ‘I hate that girl’ when a week later she will be like ‘HEY BESTIE!’. I guess all the kids my age are like that but it bothers me. It seems like I ‘m the only one who isn’t so stuck up nd fake in the grade. They all try to be something their not like a fangirl for example. It’s hard for me to make friends because I can’t stand anyone in my age group.
Should I wait for this to pass? Do I just have to wait for the kids my age to grow up? What do I do? The people in the fandoms are the only people I can relate too. I don’t want anyone interferings in my fangirl life.
Sincerely an irritated Defensive Fangirl from Guelph
