In my circle of fannish friends we've been struck lately by the humorous and occasionally horrifying effects of going through your media-consuming life with fan and/or slash goggles welded to your face.

Sometimes, the confusion is slightly more awkward and/or embarrassing, such as in these two stories:

Sometimes, when the real news gets you down, you find yourself wishing the fan-goggle versions were for true! Because of reasons.
Thank goodness it's Friday, everyone, and I hope you have some rest & relaxation time ahead of you.
