The Stages Of Sacrificing Sleep For Fanfic

(Also applicable to all forms of media, tbh.)

Posted on

So it is hella late and you probably need to go to bed

You have to adult in the morning.

Just as you're about to log off, you see it: a fanfic of your OTP

Lots of kudos, reviews, and the summary sounds epic.

The downside? It's about 100,000 words and 24 chapters long

And you really should be getting to bed

Immediately, you start frantically calculating

If I read two chapters in an hour, how much sleep will I lose?

You start waffling toward doing the responsible thing

Go to bed! Sleep! You have work tomorrow!

But the non-responsible side is telling you to go for it

Work doesn't give fluff enough to rot your teeth! Don't you wanna see your OTP live happily ever after?!

You decide on just one chapter

What could one chapter hurt?

And then one chapter becomes two

Two becomes three, three becomes four...

Next thing you know, you need to be up in like an hour

Clock you better be lying to me!

You go back to your regular life: sleep deprived

Slamming down energy drinks and trying to remind higher brain function.

It was worth it. The fic was everything promised and more!

Even though you are sleep-deprived, you are so happy.

Next time though? You may be responsible and go to bed

Who are we kidding? No, you won't. Fanfic always wins!
