How to Ruin My Favorite Song with Enormous Gorillas: A 3-Step Process by gingerpawfection

This is so weird, I don't even know you b…

This is so weird, I don't even know you but when I watched the interview of Ed talking about your gifts I got all, like proud of you or something haha It's great, I'm so happy he appreciates the things you put so much time and effort into 🙂

Oh, that’s awfully kind of you! 🙂 Given the amount of negativity in my askbox right now, this note cheered me up like you wouldn’t believe.

I don’t usually do a lot of outward fangirling, but when Ed mentioned my gifts in his interview, I did get a little bit… um. Emotional, I guess. I mean, it seems kind of silly, but it just hit me while I was listening to him talk. I think about Ed every day (clearly, judging from this blog). And I know that there’s a very big difference between being a fan and being a friend, but I still care about Ed and worry about him and pray for him the same way I do with all my friends, despite barely knowing the guy. And I’ve never asked for or expected any kind of recognition for this, because being a fan means that you are only one out of many millions of people all feeling the exact same way about one dude. We all think about and care for Ed every day, and we all give him love and good wishes and gifts and unique pieces of ourselves, and we do this constantly, without pride or reservation, in every kind of way that we know how, because somehow the boy has managed to touch every single one of our hearts. We don’t do this for something in return; we do it because he’s already given us something. And there are so many of us, all doing it at the same time. Thinking that somehow your particular fannishness will be acknowledged, when it’s no different from anyone else’s… it seems very unlikely, doesn’t it? 

But the thing that hit me is that, when Ed talks about stuff like how much he appreciated a particular gift from a fan or how he was touched by a particular fan’s personal story… he is not just acknowledging those fans. He’s acknowledging all of his fans, because he’s saying that even though there are so many of us, he still sees us as individuals, and he remembers us separate from each other. 

Sometimes I see a picture like this

and it makes me think about how I am only one face in a vast sea of faces, how we must all blur together for him, how it would be so easy and totally natural for him to think of us as a single fangirl with multiple heads. (Er, that’s kind of a scary image, but you know what I’m saying.) But when Ed says that this fan gave him a gift or this fan told him a story or this fan had a weird mom… I think that’s so cool. Not just because I’m one of the fans he mentioned, but because all of us are fans, and it’s like he’s saying to every single fan, Listen, I see your face. You are not just a vast sea. It would be impossible for him to talk about every fan he meets, but the fact that he can talk about any of us individually means that he thinks of us all individually.

I still think we are a vast sea. I don’t have a problem with that. I actually kind of like it. I like being in a group and doing things in unison – positive things, like barfing up love all over this one ginger kid from England. It makes me feel like I am part of something big. But when Ed points out particular fans – no matter who they are – it makes me feel like I am still me, a single person with a single identity, and being part of a big group hasn’t cost me myself. I am still small. But the fact that he recognizes each of us as small things also makes me feel very big!

Ed’s giving me size issues. 

So, this is a long and rambly post. But the reason I started talking about this is because when you said you’re proud but it’s weird because you don’t know me, I wanted to say – No, it’s not weird! I get it. It always makes sense to me to be happy/excited/proud for other fans because we’re all fans, and when something cool happens to one, it’s cool for everyone! I… sound like a total hippy, don’t I? Heh. But messages like yours are such a huge part of why I love being in this fandom. It’s worth it to wade through the negativity when you find a gem like this. 🙂

Thanks man. 

Hey, I’m heading to Ed’s concert next month, do you know how can I meet him backstage or something? Like I just want to take a photo with Ed. Thank you!

Hello! You can go backstage at one of Ed’s concerts if you have won a meet and greet. There are often competitions to win meet and greets through radio stations, although that is not the case at every show. You will need to check your local stations to see if they are running a contest for you to enter. Good luck! 

Jennnnnnnnnnn I keep checking and you haven’t posted the pics yet and I just want to see the tablet ones again because the way he looks at you is so cuuuuuute you don’t have to put the mansplaining ones lol

Just had to stick a watermark on. 🙂

“I have to show you something I haven’t shown anyone. But you’ll appreciate it.” 

Was hoping for a series of tasteful nudes, but… oh well. 

Thanks for making me look at these again! He’s really cute, isn’t he? 😀 He kept taking off his glasses because every time he put them on, they fogged up, heh. 

I’d appreciate it if you guys didn’t repost my photos anywhere. Thanks! 🙂

“Carbone – have you been there? – does like some vodka rigatoni that’s [explosion noise] bangin’. They made me a t-shirt ‘cause I ate the most portions of pasta that they’ve ever seen. I was like, ‘Give me six portions of the vodka rigatoni in one big bowl,’ and they were like, ‘You’re not gonna eat that,’ and was like, ‘I’ll show you.’ And then I was eating it, and all the waiters like kept coming out to look and check if I was like sharing it. And I wasn’t. And I finished it and then had a cheesecake, and they made me a– They’re gonna like make it a challenge.”
