They make you laugh and they have awesome fic, they seem really personable and they've got that sarcastic funny way about them that makes their opinions matter to you in ways that astound you.
Yeah the cool kids in fandom, I have a love-hate relationship with them. I love them because they're awesome and funny and confident, but I also hate them because I mean wtf, I want to be that cool for one and two, they seem to be those people who have strong opinions that you don't nessecarily agree with 100% of the time, but because they're funny and engaging you find yourself agreeing with them and changing your own opinions which are stupid when you look at them from these cool people's perspective and so you end up feeling weirdly dumb when you're hanging out in their journals. And then three, you know how they always post snatches of conversations they've had with other cool people on aim or through journals or whatever(and they're always poignant and funny because they're of course talking to other cool people) and you end up feeling sad and slightly pathetic because you never talk to anyone on aim let alone anyone cool and you don't have fascinating revealing fandom conversations about how John/Dean/House/Harry did that thing and it's because they had some obscure childhood trama and they angsted and impregnated someone or something bizarre that didn't happen but is amusingly hilarious, and of course since you never had that conversation you can't go and post the snatchet in your journal.
Anyway, the cool kids are always bringing us normal people down in some for or another, it's just odd to me to have cool kids in the un-cool kids club. It's a walking talking oxymoron.
Back to the burgh today... poop.
