Anyway, no more stalling; here we are at:
6. acceptance “i have accepted that i will never know you but i will continuously love you and i am okay with that”
Kind of hard to read, I apologize. But the main point is this: "you have managed to retain a mature attitude towards the show." It's interesting how so much of the rhetoric focusing around fangirls is the perception of them as naive, screaming teenagers and that it's assumed that fangirling is something one leaves behind when one "grows up." I want to question this; I mean, I'm 21 and I'll be the first to admit that I'm only becoming a more intense fangirl as I grow older. Some of the most obsessed followers I see on Tumblr are around the age of 26. Perhaps it's time to set aside this notion of fangirls being very young and see them for who they actually are.
If I had more documented evidence, I would use it. But I don't. I'm just a university student, blogging subjectively from what I've seen. But I'm hoping what I'm saying doesn't sound completely mad. Of course, not all fangirls have self-esteem problems. Yet there is something more here, something I
hope doesn't amount to just cobwebs and dust. We shall see what we shall see.
And of course, as promised:
You poor, poor man, Martin Freeman; it's like someone set you up for this. For God's sake, what are his children going to think if they see this? (Actually, nullify that; as a child, I would have thought it was awesome. But then again I was a most unusual child. I used to want to be a mouse. And with that tangent, Musto out!)
