i found this at a school i went to for a band related activity
How did you do in P.E. today ?
I confront Pepper about his habit of sitting where the laptop vents warm air.
By FAR my favorite thing about all the conventions I’ve been to is the friendly energy that comes with people being brought together under one roof for a general common interest
Like to be honest, in the grand scheme of things I find nerd culture more trouble than it’s worth and I’m not super fond of elevating it above or separating it from the norm. And I definitely don’t think conventions are safe havens where everyone can be trusted. Like we all know the creepy stuff that goes down at a lot of conventions
But the general energy of a convention is so nice. Nobody really needs to know each other to be kind and enthusiastic about each others’ presence. Having that common interest is all you need to like somebody within the bubble of a convention. You can just talk to people, pay them compliments, get a picture with them, bond with complete strangers over mutual adoration for something, and there things are just givens. It’s part of the experience. And when it’s just that and none of the elitist, creepy, misogynistic, all-flavors-of-problematic crap that geek culture fosters, I can’t help but think that the way people treat each other at conventions is how human beings would ideally treat each other all the time, everywhere
