Diagnosis of the Day 1
November 14, 2013 § Leave a comment
I’ll be adding a diagnosis to the site every day until the book is published. Let me know if you have something I haven’t included.
Diagnosis of the day:
Death Stan Disorder
When a fangirl’s favorite character dies on a TV show, and she continues to watch only to make angry comments on social media about how the show was so much better with her favorite character. She is unable to ship any remaining characters and/or participate in other squee-related behavior. Behavior is only diagnosable and dystonic if it lasts for more than one season after the character dies. Also can apply to characters who leave rather than die.
Exceptions include: any Walking Dead character for purposes of the author’s own disillusionment and denial.
