Grammar Fandom - ?x! by Inonibird Grammar Fandom - ?x! by Inonibird
So this is a thing, now.

Seriously, weird shit happens on tumblr. After ~KatWylder and I gushed over semicolons and grammar in general, the following conversation ensued:

Kat: I think we should make grammar into a fandom. My OTP is exclamation pointxquestion mark. They can have little baby interrobangs together.

Inoni: Ah, but we’ll end up with the inevitable American vs. British fandom wars—like if quotation marks are seme or uke in their relationships with other punctuation, or whether or not to ship o/u.

Kat: Hm, I dunno about question marks, but I see exclamation points as being tsundere.

"I-it’s not like I like you or anything! Stupid!" (≧^≦)

Inoni: Question marks could be dandere? (and maybe they also get along well with ellipses…?)

Parentheses, meanwhile, are kinda socially awkward (always butting in with their superfluous, tangential and unsolicited comments). But I still like ‘em.

Kat: They’re like the token clumsy-but-cute girl, where being endearingly awkward is their only flaw.

Inoni: Gijinkas, stat!

So she posted a gijinka for Exclamation Point and I posted one for Question Mark. Then this happened. And there should be more, soon. And this is so, so silly.

BUT NO REGRETS. *flings self off cliff*

this ridiculous idea belongs to ~KatWylder and myself, but the grammar fandom is universal =P

Ha, this is great!  Nailed the personalities (^_^)b

Funny enough, I humanized numbers 0-9 in elementary school, too, particularly when adding.  For example, 7 was always hitting on 6 (which pissed off 6 immensely) while they were in the pink, bubbly setting of 13, 9 got along with everyone, as did timid 1, and I NEVER EVER liked putting 8 and 6 together in forest green 14.  That was 7's territory, and when 7 was absent 8 and 6 would fight to the death to claim the territory.

Two things I just learned looking back:
1. I'm biased towards odds
2. I was a really weird kid :o

Hashtag is a tumblr fangirl who is always making weird references. Asterisk works in advertising. Ampersand is a classy British gentleman. Tilde is a sexy Spanish guy.
i could play this game all day, or until I run out of punctuation marks.

I humanized number 0-9 to make math less boring, but I ended up shipping One and Zero and giggling when I wrote 10.

This might be the most adorable thing I've ever seen, and Semicolon is now a character in my head. :D:D
