Inside The Theme: Notice Me, Senpai!

This month our mind is on our Senpai! Wouldn’t you just love for your favorite fandom senpai to notice you? And when they don’t, don’t you just want to eat your feelings? And sometimes, don’t you want to say “Screw it!” and pal around with your Galentines instead!? Each month we ask 5 hard-hitting questions as we go Inside the Theme. Play along on the forums!

1) Who was your first fictional crush? Who is a current fictional crush?  
2) You’d love for senpai to notice you… What secret admirer gift do you send in silent hope for some attention?
3) What is your go-to indulgence when you just want to channel your inner Usagi and eat your feelings over that clueless senpai?
4) Feel like sharing an awkward dating anecdote?
5) Never mind senpai! Give us a short galentine’s day poem to celebrate all the amazing ladies you love!

1) Who was your first fictional crush? Who is a current fictional crush? 
My first fictional crush? Oh that’s hard. Maybe Legolas from Lord of the Rings? And I need to specify that it was from the books and not an Orlando Bloom crush. NO. Wait. The fox version of Robin Hood from the Disney cartoon. I think he’s a pretty likely candidate. Right now I’d say I have a pretty good crush on Thor, but will freely admit that’s probably a Chris Hemsworth thing… Heh heh.

2) You’d love for senpai to notice you… What secret admirer gift do you send in silent hope for some attention?
I send their favorite snack. It shows that you care (because what’s better than a yummy treat?) and that you’ve paid enough attention to know what their favorite snack is. It’s not creepy, it’s just observational of you… right?

3) What is your go-to indulgence when you just want to channel your inner Usagi and eat your feelings over that clueless senpai?
Pop tarts. Marshmallows. Or a whole sleeve of Girl Scout Thin Mints…..

4) Feel like sharing an awkward dating anecdote?
I once went on a date with a dental student (we were both at university) and spent the evening alternatively talking about teeth…and professional wrestling, his other main interest.

5) Never mind senpai! Give us a short galentine’s day poem to celebrate all the amazing ladies you love!
Blood cells are red and veins look quite blue,
My lady friends are amazing and smart
and probably expect this poem to rhyme.

Stewie

1) Who was your first fictional crush? Who is a current fictional crush?  
My first crush was totally Peter Pan from the Disney movies! Going into the Disney parks as a kid and seeing the actor playing him melted my heart! I wanted him to whisk me away to Never Neverland. Currently I totally love Captain America. Dreamboat! Chris Evans is clearly Marvel studmuffin material.

2) You’d love for senpai to notice you… What secret admirer gift do you send in silent hope for some attention?
I would give him a cheesy locket (Juri from Utena style) with our photos in it, because there’s no shame in my fantasy world and he would love it!

3) What is your go-to indulgence when you just want to channel your inner Usagi and eat your feelings over that clueless senpai?
Chocolate-covered donuts, or salad. I’m weird. I like salad, okay?!

4) Feel like sharing an awkward dating anecdote? 
I once dated a guy who literally bit my face as we kissed. I get the sense he might have been trying to consume me whole.

5) Never mind senpai! Give us a short galentine’s day poem to celebrate all the amazing ladies you love!
The girls in this club
Amaze me on the daily.
Enough talk. Let’s spoon.

Jen

1) Who was your first fictional crush? Who is a current fictional crush?  
Hmm I’d have to go with Gambit as my first fictional crush. His charming personality won me over in the 90s animated X-Men cartoon. Currently my fictional crushes are from books- Josh from Isla and the Happily Ever After, Elend Venture from Mistborn: The Final Empire, and Simon from The Mortal Instruments.

2) You’d love for senpai to notice you… What secret admirer gift do you send in silent hope for some attention?
Definitely some sort of baked good – homemade cookies or cupcakes!

3) What is your go-to indulgence when you just want to channel your inner Usagi and eat your feelings over that clueless senpai?
Anything chocolate or licorice. Or chocolate-covered licorice.

4) Feel like sharing an awkward dating anecdote? 
Do not lie about your height on a dating site. When you meet in person, they will be able to tell if you exaggerated those extra 7 inches in height.

5) Never mind senpai! Give us a short galentine’s day poem to celebrate all the amazing ladies you love!
No one said it better than Leslie Knope….
Uteruses before duderuses.

Sumsy

1) Who was your first fictional crush? Who is a current fictional crush?
Probably Fox Mulder was my first crush. Current crush? Oh geez… Dreamboat Rebel pilot Poe Dameron?

2) You’d love for senpai to notice you… What secret admirer gift do you send in silent hope for some attention?
A jar of my homemade jam! Or some craft beer. Or both!

3) What is your go-to indulgence when you just want to channel your inner Usagi and eat your feelings over that clueless senpai?
A brownie ice cream sundae.

4) Feel like sharing an awkward dating anecdote?
NOPE.

5) Never mind senpai! Give us a short galentine’s day poem to celebrate all the amazing ladies you love!
Roses are Red,
Violet are Blue,
I love Geek Girl Pals,
My kitties, and YOU!
