So, you may have thought that my strange obsession with the lead singer of a Scream-o band would have stopped a day or two in.
I certainly did.
But here I am, writing another post, because instead of accepting my attraction and moving on with my life, I’ve taken it to a whole other level…
After a good 48 hours spent watching Pierce the Veil (his band) interviews, music videos, live performances, and montages, any normal person would have had enough. Especially after they realized they were nodding along with his answers in those interviews and saying things like, “oh my god. He enjoys running? We could totally go on runs together.” Or “Shit, that Jaime guy is pretty funny. I’d definitely get along with his friends. This is perfect.”
Yeah, any normal person would have stopped themselves at that point, but alas, I am no such normal person.
Instead, I took to the internet to find even more Vic Fuentes.
I started on the bands site. Relatively normal. That’s how I discovered that they’re playing in San Francisco in my birthday month. Just in case you’re wondering, yes, I have clicked open the site and hovered over the “buy tickets” button multiple times in one day. Yes, I did just do it again.
But, thinking about buying tickets is pretty low key. Nothing to be too embarrassed by.
But, ah! It gets worse.
I then took to tumblr and typed in Pierce the Veil into the search bar. I was taken to a page all about the band which included some fan posts. And I started reading. Now here’s where I realized that things had gotten kind of weird. And by things, I mean me.
This is what happened.
I’m reading a post written by a fan and they’re describing a time they went to a Pierce the Veil show and were accused of not being a true fan. The post went something like this, “I was at a PTV (Pierce the Veil) show and someone told me that I wasn’t a ‘real’ fan. They asked me to name any song besides King for a Day.”
And as I’m reading I’m like, oh, valid question (because yes, I do know how popular the song is and I have watched the behind the scenes making of the music video…)
The post continues, “So I name every song from A Flair for the Dramatic and stopping at Collide With the Sky.”
And I’m like, oh, yes!!! You showed her! You’re a TRUE fan.
Like, we have something in common because i’m the “truest” fan… Ridiculous.
So I keep reading and post continues on to say, “And then this bitch still thinks I’m not a fan and asks me to name one member besides Kellin Quinn.”
Oh, no she didn’t!!!!!
For those of you who don’t know, Kellin Quinn is DEFINITELY part of Sleeping with Sirens and NOT Pierce the Veil. He just happens to be homies with Vic and that’s why they made the song together, DUH! This is basic shit. So I’m like legitimately pissed off. Fuming. Mad.
That’s kind of when I realize that I’ve gone a little too far off the deep end this time. I realize that my reaction to someone getting a band member mixed up may or may not have been a bit too strong for someone who really doesn’t know two shits about the band or this genre of music.
Maybe I should stop all of this…
But then I’m like Welp, I give zero shits at this point. I’m already having secretly listening sessions in my room (we’re more of a top 40 household in general) I might as well find his instagram. Now, in my mind I’m thinking that I’ll just find it. Not add him or anything. Just see some candid shots and selfies.
Yeah… like I have that kind of self-control. Once I see those selfies it’s over. I mean, you’re not NOT gonna get Randy Jackson’s signature and I’m not NOT gonna follow Vic Fuentes on instagram. Biggest joke I’ve ever heard.
So, yeah. I now follow this kid on instagram and yes, I do wake up hopeful to see a new picture as I check my feed in the morning. Totally healthy.
Not to mention the fact that I may or may not have Google’d to see whether he had a girlfriend or not.
I think I need an intervention?
