My original post on tumblr received 61 notes and it got me to think again about what makes me attracted to the freaks. I still have no clue. Maybe it’s because I’m an outsider myself, never to fit in anywhere, whatever I do, say or wear. But it is nice to find someone who is just as weird as me and can share the same interests. In the post, there’s several characters listed, (one who was just an actor in Pink’s video) but plenty that have not made that list; from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock to Misha Collins’ Castiel, David Tennant’s performance of the 10th Doctor and Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow.
Whether you’re R (Nicholas Hoult) dying for brains or the crazy Warboy (also Nicholas Hoult) in a desert-y place, these shows prove that you don’t always have to be a normal human to be a freak; that you can be loved and hated all at the same time, but you are always the most important piece in the whole universe.
So be proud of your overly worked brain on science factors, show off your mad skills of fear inducing mutant powers and be Hawkward every day, because in the end, only what you think matters the most.
