I’ve answered this question already. . . hmm what can we do here? haha
How did fandoms influence you and your life?
Simple answer here an aussie land corrupted me. Going from shy english girl to loud hyper cross breed British/Aussie, who found a new lease on life itself.
Fandoms in all the things nerd, geek, anime etc made life better, they made life exciting in how I view it. If we are talking frankly here having interests like hair, makeup would not life exciting for me. I would trade all that to be crazy, fangirl, little loopy any day. The nerd culture is the ultimate acceptance and started to care about self love for my own person. Learn to love the things that make me. I’ve expressed this in a post for OWLS that really answers this prompt wholly, recommend to read to gave the full scoop.
I’m not the same person when I first moved to countries and diving into the nerd scene more, it changed everything for me. Don’t think I can find the words to express it, this feeling, a sentimental treasure.
Short answer for this prompt but three words describes what fandoms did for me: corrupted, acceptance and happiness.
I’d like to hear not just about me but you guys what fandoms have done to you? Did they bring all the upsets to your wallets, Did it bring you friends to be crazy people with?
Stay tuned for Day 22 tomorrow!
