13. When he was ~officially~ pronounced as weird, because Stephen Fry said so.

14. And he was fully aware of the effects of his weirdness.

"I thought I saw fairies once, about five, in my nan's garden. It's not the sort of thing where you can go round telling people, 'I see fairies'. People don't like that sort of talk. I find it excludes you from most social groups."
