Hardly. But this.
Many Armitage fans have a penchant for learning as much as they can about topics that flow from following Richard Armitage. Whether it’s learning to make Gifs or photo edits, reading works and author bios we might not touch, studying acting techniques or ice cream flavors, studying distribution of independent films and men’s clothing trends – whatever. Fangirling can be more than just ogling a hunk.
I know I should be improving my Spanish, since I live in Mexico now.
Instead, I’m thinking of learning German because there are a fair number of only German speakers in the fandom, and I think I’m missing out. I do use Google translate, and I’ve even learned to figure out some of how it gets it so wrong when it translates into English ( thanks to hints from some German speaking friends.)What? capital letters in the middle of sentences – not proper nouns? I’m even beginning to believe that I can read some German ( a bissel Yiddish doesn’t hurt).
Fandom. You can really love it. (
I’ll keep you posted.
