The thing I love about fandom
is that it's hopeless and random.
Meeting all sorts of characters who
you love, who you'd die for.
The Avengers, for example.
Steve Rogers is so humble,
Tony Stark filled with bravado.
Natasha's filled with fierce,
and Thor's got swagger.
Like Stranger Things with
Dustin and Lucas and Mike and Eleven,
with Steve and Jonathan and Nancy and Will.
It's a story about a small town, sinister secrets,
and fighting for your friends and family.
Like Doctor Who with Eleven and the Ponds,
Ten and Donna, traveling, having fun.
Not everyone can have adventures, but
when you can, allons-y, geronimo!
Like Sherlock with John and Sherlock,
Lestrade and Moriarty.
Two men sitting in a flat,
their homes for the rest of their lives,
This is what fandom's like.
It's callous and swift and filled with strife.
So please don't laugh, for them we feel
And, for heaven's sake, don't say,
"It's not even real."
