1. Casual Fangirl

This [book/author/show] is pretty good. You’re definitely going to need the sequel. They are talented, attractive individuals.

Actually, this show is excellent. Is there fanfiction? You won't leave the cast photo as your screensaver for that long ... you needed a new one anyway.

2. Fangirl Lite

Actually, this [book/author/show] is excellent. Show me the cover! I need a new screensaver.

Yes, you've watched the trailer ten times just to make sure you caught all the subtext. And maybe occasionally paused on close-ups of the leads' faces -- just to see what their facial expressions said about the plot. But you're not going to tell anyone about it.

3. Self-Aware Fangirl

Leveling UpYes, you’ve read the synopsis ten times just to make sure you caught all the subtext. And maybe occasionally looked at a close-up of the author’s face — just to see what their facial expressions said about the plot. But you’re not going to tell anyone about it.

You just need a T-shirt with that one quote on it. And maybe a sticker of your favorite character. And an exact replica of that ring they found in that one episode.

4. Collector Fangirl

You just need a T-shirt with that one quote on it. And maybe a sticker of your favorite character. And an exact replica of that thing they found in that one chapter.

The next movie in the series came out, and you read that the actors are trying not to laugh at an inside joke in the last scene. And when the lead actress pointed in the first scene what did she really mean? Maybe you should talk about something else.

5. Fangirl Denial

The next book in the series came out, and you read that the author is trying not to spoil at an Easter egg in the one scene. And when the main character did that thing in the first chapter – what did she really mean? Maybe you should talk about something else for a while.

You know your friends are sick of hearing about your fandom. You know you should talk about something else, but the feels are too overwhelming. You have to share them with someone. Anyone.

6. Fangirl Submission

You know your friends are sick of hearing about your fandom. You know you should talk about something else, but the feels are too overwhelming. You have to share them with someone. Anyone.

The story is just so perfect: the lines, and the way the characters say the lines with their mouths and their voices. How is anyone talking about anything else?!

7. Overtaken Fangirl

The story is just so perfect: the lines, and the way the characters say the lines with their mouths.  How is anyone talking about anythig else?!

You realize you've been a bit obsessive and you feel it's time to apologize to your non-fandom friends for trying to drag them into it.

8. Apologetic Fangirl

You realize you’ve been a bit obsessive and you feel it’s time to apologize to your non-fandom friends for trying to drag them into it.

You discover message boards and fanblogs. There is a whole slew of people just like you. Suddenly, you are obsessing over your Facebook friend list labeled

9. Fangirl Community

You discover message boards and fanblogs. There is a whole slew of people just like you. Suddenly, you are obsessing over your Facebook friend list labeled “People Who Get It.”

After watching that one scene for the hundredth time, the line repeated two seasons later totally makes sense! Did anyone else catch how the lead said

10. Analytic Fangirl

After re-reading that one scene for the hundredth time, the line repeated two books later totally makes sense! Did anyone else catch how the lead said “hey” to his lady friend? They are so in love. Everything makes sense.

This is a level many will skip, as fandoms are supposed to support the community. But if someone doesn't know the name of the restaurant in episode 203? Judging you.

11. Judgmental Fangirl

This is a level many will skip, as fandoms are supposed to support the community. But if someone doesn’t know the name of the restaurant in chapter 7? Screw you!

EVERYTHING IS FANDOM AND EVERYTHING HURTS AND CAPLOCKS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO PROPERLY EXPRESS ALL YOUR EMOTIONS.

12. Raging Fangirl

EVERYTHING IS FANDOM AND EVERYTHING HURTS AND CAPLOCKS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO PROPERLY EXPRESS ALL YOUR EMOTIONS.

Your fandom is the best fandom. Your characters are the best characters. You are not interested in hearing from anyone who disagrees.

13. Unapologetic Fangirl

Your fandom is the best fandom. Your characters are the best characters. You are not interested in hearing from anyone who disagrees.

Completely obsessing over a piece of pop culture can be tiresome, and sometimes you just need a break. Unfortunately that's not going to happen, because there are GIFs to be made and fan art to be drawn.

14. Fangirl Exhaustion

Completely obsessing over a piece of pop culture can be tiresome, and sometimes you just need a break. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen, because there are GIFs to be made and fan art to be drawn.
