faeriewings1781: Farkle being Farkle (Its Farkle Time)
So its been said by me, and my family that when I really get into something, I go all out. That's the truth, and I completely embrace it. I used to think of it as something to be ashamed of. I would hide my fandoms and not talk about them with anyone except for those who I knew were the same way as me. I'd even avoid talking to people who I Knew didn't share the fandom because it's all I want to talk about.

I've come to a point in my life where I think avoiding others who are different or think differently about a fandom is a bad thing. I mean, not everyone will like the same things on the same level I do. That's okay. It's also okay that I go overboard because that's how my support comes across. If it annoys others, then they are perfectly alright say, "I don't want to talk about this anymore". And even though I might initially feel rejected, I will be okay. That is something I am trying to work on.

Case in point, I think already in just a week, people are tired of hearing about Farkle Minkus, Girl Meets World, and the actors that have and have not returned to the verse. But my real friends understand that this something I am really passionate about at the moment, and if I'm going to be passionate about it, then it's best to let it ride its way out. Of course, we're talking about Farkle Minkus, who just needs to be protected. (-smacks forehead-Way to make your point, dude.)

There's a good possiblity that Farkle has become a permanent member of my muse closet, which I am totally okay with as long as Dad Stuart Minkus doesn't join him. Well, maybe adult!Stuart Minkus can. He's very funny. <3

I have watched Girl Meets Maya's Mother a lot now, just because of Lee Norris' appearance. .I can't lie. I am going back to Youtube, too, and some of Minkus' moments on Boy Meets World, and let me tell you. There are MINKUS homages all over Farkle! From his hair and his genius, to his flirtatious side, he is all Minkus just in a new, more amicable formula. IF that makes sense.

Some of the other things I've done as a fan girl is spend hours on the Girl Meets World boards. These are board for the official Wikia, the Disney Channel, and various IMDB.com boards for both the actors of the show, the show itself, episodes, and the parent show, Boy Meets World. I have also entered Farkle into an RPG, which I mentioned in my last entry.

Now i am trying ot learn quotes from the little guy cause his quips are just as a good as Minkus' were back in the day. (Riley: You said they were all natural!! "SUGAAAAR!" ) and there was a whole thing with that... but I still don't remember it all by heart. Going to work on that! "Cash, Cabbage Chedduh Cheeze!" ....yeah, I am on another Farkle High. I shouldn't have watched "Girl Meets Crazy Hat" again. LOL.

I made Farkle post in the RPG tonight, and I'm hoping that he gets some tags. <3 Farkle is enjoying this RPG a bit too much. And maybe I am, too, since it with some old friends and some new ones. It's nice to be back with them, I tell you.

Fangirling can be a thankless job unless you get a chance to meet the people you admire. Its a rarity for most of us, I know. I can count on 1 hand how many times I have gotten to meet the people I admire be they authors or actors. But we loyal fangirls (and boys) tend do it because we believe that somehow our efforts will be recognized. The Internet has made the possibility of a fan's effort being recognized by Twitter, Facebook, and many other social media outlets more of a possibility. But I am not cocky enough to believe that mine will, but I have gotten lucky on occasion. I just don't ever think that way. It's more like, I do it because it's who I am and what makes me happy.

Farkle Fan Out!

Trivia: My biggest idol as a teenager was Johnny Yong Bosch who played Adam Park, the second Black Ranger. My dream of meeting him, and sharing my story of overcoming bullying via Power Rangers came true a few years ago when I was able to meet him at Otakon. It's a day I haven't forgotten.

So yesterday I began something I never thought I would. I started RPing with my girl, Lexi! We haven't really been in an RPG together in a few years since I had gotten involved in INsane Journal RPGs. How did it happen? Well, I'll tell you!

I needed a place to play dear Farkle Minkus that Valerie wouldn't be involved in. I love Valerie, I do. But as an RPG partner she sucks at being reliable for tagging. She gets too overwhelmed by bringing in too many characters. She actually grated my nerves when I expressed my initial shock over Facebook for feeling close to Farkle after a 13 episode marathon on Saturday. I haven't mentioned having a Farkle muse where she can see it because she'll whine if I don't want to play with her Riley or Maya. It's not that, really. It's the unreliability of the tagging. I don't approve of people claiming characters in a game and then not playing them at all.

So now Farkle is in Grande Latte with Lexi and a few of our other friends. <3 SOme of them I am still getting to know, but so far I've found them all fun to be around, and they have really embraced Farkle and my obsession with him.

I ahve watched the episode where Minkus makes his appearance no more than 12 times now. I love it so much. Lee Norris' chemistry on screen with Corey Fogelmanis (how is that for an appropriate last name for the person playing a character with a name like Farkle Minkus?) was just...perfect. I don't know if that was on purpose or not. It would be nice to think that they really took out the time to try the kids of the famous parents (Topanga, Cory, and Minkus), but I really doubt it. The only one I can see them doing that for is Riley (Rowan Blanchard). The casting of Corey Fogelmanis as Minkus 2.0 had to be magic for him to play off of Lee Norris so well. Yes, we're talking about one episode so far. There has been no word on a second appearance from Lee. Would be nice if some more of the gang got together for the Christmas episode. I know that RIder Strong is set to appear as Shawn for Christmas. I could easily see Lee Norris showing up and the Matthews family having a Christmas gathering and him coming to that. (Though, and maybe its because he's really turned into a psuedo-Seto Kaiba to me for some reason, I can see the party being hosted at the Minkuses with Mrs. Minkus doing the cooking. )

Last night i started a Matthews vs. Minkus fanfic. I am still working Into the Fire, so I don't know how far I will get with this fic. But it is sure to be amusing as Minkus and Topanga become more involved in the election than their kids. Hilarity and nostalgia abound. Farkle is in top form in the fic. And I've already got ideas for other Farkle-centric fics. Yay!

That being said...I'm nervous about National Novel Writing Month. I haven't been able to focus on plotting NaNoWriMo at all. I have a vague idea for what I'm going to attempt, but I doubt I will do it well because my brain is just....on fanfic. Both what I'm working on, and what I've got planned.

I just don't know if I have it in me right now to work on original work. :( I am sure once November 1st hits, I'll be thinking differently. But right now, I just don't see original work happening. >.>
