- Lie through your teeth and accept cigarettes, even if you just slide them behind your ear like James Dean. In general pretend to be tougher than your father, blanker and crazier than your mother with her particular interests and phobias. Insist upon the window opened a crack. Write down what you see until you feel sick. They’ll stop. They don’t want you to puke all over the dash. That’s when you get out and wait for a different ride. Number ten is huge. Your survival as a hitchhiker depends upon it. I love you; please don’t die.

Okay, but if any fandom is truly terrifying, it’s the Kingdom Hearts fandom. A lot of us have been following the series since it came out in 2002 and we’re just so patient at this point we’re like fuckin assassins. We hide in plain sight and when there’s an update we just lose our minds and everyone else just wonders what the fuck happened while we tear the whole goddamn world apart out of pure unadulterated joy from a minute and a half long trailer.
