Short and sweet: I met my girlfriend through fandom. We’d interacted a few times - I’d archived her podfics, and she’d thanked me, and I adored - still adore - one of her fics, and I believe I’d commented to that effect.
And then a mutual friend invited her to a group movie-watching and I thought she was so cute and smart and funny and engineered it so we were sitting together and we were laughing throughout the movie, though only sometimes becfause of the movie. We gravitated towards each other at various fannish get-togethers, then this time last year she asked me on a date.2016 was crap in many, many ways, but dating her is the best thing that’s happened to me in ages.
