I didn’t choose the fandom life.
The fandom life broke into my house in the middle of the night and said “Dad’s on a hunting trip, and hasn’t been home in a few days.”
The fandom life grabbed my hand and whispered “run”.
The fandom life said “The name is Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221b Baker Street” and winked at me
The fandom life broke down my door and said “Yer a wizard”
