We’ve all been there. The train is coming into the station, and you grab your MetroCard and quickly try and swipe it at a turnstile.
"Please Swipe Again". "Please Swipe Again". "Insufficient Fare".
The last two words are killer. You think to yourself “I swear I had a balance on this card”….
seriously, stop shaming each other. we all love the same god damn nerdy thing. We’re all nerds. One nerd isn’t better than the other for having a better outfit or the screen accurate outfit, one isn’t worse for having one that is thrifted. THE NERD SHAME NEEDS TO STOP. Shade has been thrown, quit being assholes to each other. If I see another Amy Pond when I’m in an Amy Pond, I stop and tell you how AWESOME you look. If you ignore me, I’ma throw some SHADE your way.
this counts for ALL of y’all nerds. anime, video games, tv shows, comics.
when I was a kid I got made fun of mercilessly for reading comics, and y’all are sitting here COMPETING TO BE THE BEST OF THE MOST MADE FUN OF. it’s laughable. just be yourself and be nice to each other and high five other 11th Doctor Cosplayers and booty dance and laugh with other Final Fantasy cosplayers that are dressed in the same cosplay you are dude. you’ll have way more fun than being elitist pricks and looking down at other people
