Every week, Jimmy Fallon tweets a prompt for The Tonight Show's hashtag game, where the funniest responses to #MomTexts, #MyFamilyIsWeird, #WhyDidISayThat, or other relatable hashtags are collected and read by Fallon on the air. Most responses stay pretty on point. When Fallon sent out this week's prompt, however, he wasn't expecting the incredibly dedicated fanbase of the recently cancelled Freeform show Shadowhunters to step in and hijack it.


This week's prompt was #IfIWonTheLottery, and you can guess what Shadowhunters fans would do with that money.










If this is the first time you've heard of Shadowhunters, which was cancelled in June after completing its third season, you're in good company. The show, based on The Mortal Instruments series of books by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters "told the story of Clary Fray, a young woman who finds out on her 18th birthday that she's a Shadowhunter ― a human-angel hybrid who feels compelled to...hunt demons." Freeform has plans to air a conclusion to the series in early 2019, but that's not enough for many fans, who feel the series (whose finale was watched live by about 310,000 people) deserves to continue.

They're making their feelings VERY clear to Jimmy Fallon:


This is the most coordinated Twitter effort from Shadowhunters fans to date, though they've tweeted at Fallon in the past, calling for the show's renewal. In the non-digital world, fans have also taken steps some would call overzealous, including "starting a Change.org petition, renting billboards in Times Square and even reportedly hiring a plane to circle Netflix's LA headquarters with a pro-Shadowhunters banner."


















Here's to you, Shadowhunters fans! Tweeting at Jimmy Fallon may not have any effect on whether your show gets brought back, but it's certainly put Shadowhunters on the public's radar. If only this many people knew about it back when it was still on the air...

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
