One thing that a lot of young book and movie nerds can relate to is falling in love with a fictional character. That may sound weird to the normies, but it is a very real side effect of being a fangirl/boy. It's just a part of nerd culture at this point. Here are some examples of fictional characters that real life people have fallen for.


u/NFDBTCREPo asked: Which fictional character did you fall for?

He is a cutie.

My 3 year old is absolutely in love with Kristoff. All I hear, "Who does Kristoff love?". Anna is never the correct answer.

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Many people would not be able to survive without the benefits of modern medicine. That's what we learned after Redditor forevernostalgic23 asked the online community,

"If modern medicine didn't exist what medical condition would have died from or been severely impacted by?"
