you never realize how boring your life is until someone asks what you like to do for fun.
#yeah i cry over fictional characters with strangers#they’re not even in the same country
But think about how cool that is. You strike up a conversation with someone you’ve never met in person, potentially on the opposite side of the fucking planet. You would never have met this person otherwise. Your paths have no reason to have crossed, but you can instantly forge a connection with this stranger because no matter how different the rest of your individual lives may be, you have this shared experience of the same fictional world. We don’t sit around campfires and tell stories about mythic heroes any more. We have computer screens and headcanons and AU fanfiction. But it’s still fundamentally the same thing. What you do for fun is something fundamentally human that has survived and grown and changed as long as there have been humans, and now you get to do it on a planetary scale.
Who the fuck needs flying cars.
