Counselor asking about my anxiety in social situations.
Me: Blahblahblah, but mostly what I don’t like about family events is just people asking me stupid questions. Like, “What have you been up to lately?” These people all talk about the same things and I’m not married, don’t have kids, don’t work. Why do they want me to say? Do they want me to tell them about The Avengers fic I’m writing, cuz I can. I’m really excited about it, it’s awesome, but they’ll probably just think I’m weird.
C: Blahblahblah, and also, when you mentioned writing an Avengers story, like oh, you write fanfiction.
Me: Yes, I do. You know what that words means.
C: Oh yeah, I’m in fandom too.
Me with my mind boggled. More blahblahblah about stuff until the end of session when…
Me: So, just curious, since I’m a multifandom girl, what fandom are you in?
C: I started out in Harry Potter but that was like eight years ago. Now I’m into this show called ‘Supernatural’.
Me: Omg. That’s my show.
C: Really. So just to warn you, I’m a slasher.
Me: Uh duh, me too,
C: I used to really be into Wincest, but not anymore.
Me: Well, in the beginning it was the only thing really heavy in the slash side of SPN.
C; Yeah, true. But then Cas came along…
Me: /noises of love/
C: And now I’m super into Destiel.
Me: Omg, that’s my OTP of Love.
C: They are so in love, it’s crazy!
So, that was how I discovered that my counselor is a Dean/Cas girl. When she gave me ‘homework’ this week, I said, “This better not get in the way of my fanfiction time,” and she said, “There is never enough fanfiction time.” True story.
