Does anyone remember Xiaolin Showdown? I feel like me watching this when I was little explains so much about who I am, as a person…
So one time my dad bought a skeleton for Halloween, and one day he decided to place it in the kitchen to scare me and it went too far…
"To my all time #1 fan! (Summer)"
I don’t really get why I’m his #1 fan. Like I don’t do anything, but it’s a really big honor and huge deal to me because his videos helped me through a couple of really rough years. So, I’ll always look up to him and be very grateful for his kind words to me.
Here’s why you’re my all time #1 fan, Summer.
Every convention I’ve been to, every appearance I’ve made, I meet fans. Some of them are hardcore, some of them are casual, a lot of them are very excited and want to yell quotes and do voices with me and have fun and ask questions, etc.
Some of them are nicer than others, some of them can be rude, but at the end of the day, all of them are enthusiastic and passionate and (usually) happy to see me.
You may think that you are no different from the rest of them, but to me, you’re an enduring and important part of my life. You represent the best in the fandom that has developed around this silly internet series I make.
You’re a very positive individual. I know we haven’t spoken much, but getting to see and talk to you as little as I do brightens my day more than you know. You’re soft spoken and kind, and incredibly polite. You never demand anything of me, and you’ve given me gifts on numerous occasions. You’ve supported me - and in doing so, my family. And really, you just remind me - without really even trying - why I do this.
I’ve been to a lot of conventions, and there’s always a part of me that looks for you in the crowd when I’m doing a panel or walking about the convention building. Because you help me get through rough times, too.
There’s always a part of us that thinks we don’t matter. But without even trying, someone like me can make a difference to someone like you, and someone like you can make a difference to someone like me.
You’re my #1 fan, but more importantly, you’re a #1 person. I hope you know that.
