Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Will The Fangirl Meeting Please Come To Order? [VIDEO]


Disclaimer: Not all fangirls are the same, some lady fans don’t even like the term “fangirl.” Now that we’ve got that out of the way, watch this, it’s adorable. Harsh dig there at first but this might produce some feels from fans of Sherlock, Firefly, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Marvel, etc.

    I want this to happen. Tumblr is such a magical place.

  • Emily

    This is completely adorable!

  • Adam R. Charpentier

    Does EVERYTHING have to come with a disclaimer for the dear flutter hearts, now?

  • Anonymous

    “…of new oppourtunities.” I call that she’s a Canadian!

  • Ruby Dynamite

    Very cute, but should have included Supernatural fandom. You can’t talk about Tumblr without talking about Supernatural fandom.

  • Anonymous

    LOL that was great. Especially that ending. So adorable and entertaining.

  • Vian Lawson

    As a Star Wars tragic from waaaaaay back, this video made me all warm and fuzzy; one of the best bits of being a fangirl was (and is) lighting candles in the dark with your fellow tragics, waiting for the next [film/book/t-shirt] to redeem the awfulness of the last one. Ahhh, the camaraderie of girls who love too much. Roll on 2015!

  • Sarah Brockman

    I have a friend who did the same thing – “I’m going to college, so I’m going to stop being such a Harry Potter fan.”

    I don’t understand why so many people equate growing up to leaving what you love behind. If it comes from a desire to perhaps be more productive and spend fewer hours scouring the internet for news, I get it; we all need to prioritize things now and then. But simply ditching your passions in order to “be an adult” confuses me. I know I would be a lot less happy if I tried to tamp down my love for the Avengers or one of my many other fandoms, and with as much crap as we have in the world today, I need my fellow fangirls (and boys!) to lift my spirits.

    Well, you know how it is. No matter how they phrase it, someone will find something to complain about…

    I confess to oftentimes finding the fandom cultures more entertaining than the work their surrounding, their so gosh darn fun. X3

    no oncers? my rumbelle feels…

    Ahem – mother of two here (boy and girl). let me tell you that NOTHING has allowed me to geek out and revisit old passions the way my kids have.

    Harry Potter? Awesome
    Doctor Who – the only thing to compete with reading a chapter from HP is the promise to see another episode.
    In depth deiscussions on DC/Marvel superheros, their powers, backgrounds and most noted arch nemeses. ‘Nuff said!!
    In return they have introduced me to Pokémon and Minecraft

    you can tell by the fan expo 2013 banner in the background.

    The coup de grace at the end was classic. It’s exactly what we say when someone is enough of a douche bag to say that they’re “leaving the fandom.”

  • Nicole Elizabeth Currie

    This is all kinds of perfect. As a fangirl (no shame in admitting it), I loved all of it.

  • http://arewerobots.libsyn.com/ DarthBetty

    Every year I wait for one of my fan obsessions to become a popular thing so I can openly fan girl about it.

  • R.O.U.S.

    oh, those pesky restraining orders…

  • Ruby Dynamite

    Did I say that Supernatural ‘rules’ Tumblr? No, I fucking well didn’t. We are one of the more prevalent fandoms you’ll see, but I never said we ‘rule’ Tumblr. So sit the fuck down.

  • Bailey Fields

    lolol touched a nerve, Ruby??

  • Anonymous

    On the one hand, I have a full, active, healthy life as a teacher, volunteer, and graduate student. On the other hand, I totally have tickets to the Stargate convention in Chicago next month. I see no conflict here. Long live our fandoms, and the fans who love them!

    Who would they dress up as? Sam & Dean? I loved that show, but chock full of meaningful female characters, it is not.

  • Ruby Dynamite

    The characters are actually a lot more distinctive than you’d think. And it actually *has* had quite a few very awesome female characters on the show, and still does have two in the guise of Charlie Bradbury, played by Felicia Day on the good guy’s side, and Abbadon for the bad guys.

    If we’re going strictly by how many “meaningful female characters” the shows have (buh? since when is this a measure?), then Sherlock BBC is doing far worse than Supernatural. Since, so far, Sherlock has had precisely two meaningful female characters (the snarky cop who hates Sherlock and Irene Adler), while Supernatural has had a host of them throughout the seasons.

    HEAVEN FORBID that we try to make people happy and comfortable! GOD. I really just HATE IT when my favourite sites add a 3-line disclaimer. Ugh, it is literally the worst that The Mary Sue is considerate, am I right?

  • Anonymous

    Is that a sincere sarcastic response to my sarcastic response being interpreted as sincere, or a sarcastic sarcastic response to my sarcastic response?

    Too confused by the possible interweavings of irony at play, gonna go play with Lego.

  • Anonymous

    I was going to say I didn’t hear the difference, then I realized that I’m a Canadian.

    IT’S COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE

  • meeple

    Actually, it was a sincere sarcastic response to Adam’s sincere response which was accidentally posted in reply to your response.

    … I think I’d like to join you with those legos.

    *mind blown* No worries, I’ve accidentally replied to posts that were two years old.
