This drives me nuts really. There is so much more and better fanfic that could be written and everyone is obsessing over who can be paired up with whom - none of which makes any real sense. Give me more crossovers and creative use of the canon and I might actually start reading more fanfic, until then, I'm sticking to original freebies.

My ex best friend and I talking:

"If you're gonna do some fan stuff, why not focus on a sweet storyline more than characters kissing?"

"But it's HAWT"

You know what else is hot? Hot chocolate. It's much more satisfying than any make out session.

What's the deal with spelling hot like that..?  (Sorry, non-native English speaker here, if that makes any difference...)

Non-native English speaker +1 here! 

I guess HAWT is an exaggerated pronunciation of hot, or a kind of accent.

You know you're aromantic if Netflix and chill means just that. It means stay at home and have sex in other tongues.

The Hawt thing. It's just a sexualinaction of the word hot. It's a southern dialect applied to make it sound sexy. I am a southerner myself, but we didn't invent sex. Don't understand the hawt myself.

"Archie got HAWT!" 

I heard it in Riverdale from Kevin Keller. 

 

Thanks for the explanation. I lived in the south for one year when I was 15 but didn't notice except for "Y'all"...

Ok, thanks for the HAWT spelling explanations ;)  Not a spelling I'd ever use, and now I got this southern US pronunciation playing in my head, eurgh... :D

Accented spelling to put more emphasis on the word and it's meanings. Sory if it confuses people.

No worries StormySky ;) I was also wondering if there's a specific reason for the spelling, a story behind it or something; but now I see it's just an emphasis thing.

People also like to over look the fact that they were 13 and 17 and that they knew each other for only 3 days.

1. When you care more about acquiring a relationship due to societal pressures and insecurity than actually being in a relationship.

 

2. When your boyfriend tries to cuddle with you and all you can think is, "This is really uncomfortable."

 

3. When the thought of kissing aforementioned boyfriend makes you want to run away screaming like a four-year-old.

 

4. When you are relieved that the boyfriend has broken up with you because it feels like a huge burden has been lifted off your shoulders.

 

5. When four years have passed since then and every one of your classmates is getting married/pregnant/together and you're still sitting in the corner like Charlie Weasley going, "But guys, dragons!"

I'm going to be in a wedding and the entire time I'm going to be waiting for the Death Eaters to crash the party do I can leave.

Whenever I watch a hallmark Christmas movie (my mom watches them a lot) I always groan cause it's the same formula!

 

girl goes for a guy.

possibly has a boyfriend who sucks.

girl falls for boy.

christmas magic/cheer brings the couple together.

boyfriend is dumped by girl and girl goes for new guy.

merry freaking Christmas! XD 

 

i don't know why I just don't like these movies all that much.

The sad part is how accurate this formula really is. Just another reason not to watch hallmark movies.

My mother watches them a lot, too, and it's so annoying! The plots are generic and cliche and the acting is awful. I'm constantly making fun of them, though sometimes I feel bad because she loves them a lot and it hurts her feelings. :(
