I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I said “Don’t mention it.”
I feel like every fandom has “The Fic.”
Like a fanfiction that nearly everyone in the fandom has read and it’s just so terrifying that you can’t even speak it’s name, and you just refer to it as “The Fic.”
My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond
