Idk what defines a stan. You have to be really obsessed ig.
Ig. I think it would be like
Someone who supports Percabeth: Oh I love Percabeth (and they are usually respectful)
Percabeth stan: NOOOOOO HOW COULD YOU SHIP *insert a ship with Percy or Annabeth that doesn’t include each other*
Toxic Percabeth stan: WHATTTT HOW COULD YOU SHIP THAT PERCABETH FOR LIFE GO TO TARTARUS
Hmm. I considered myself a Percy stan but now I'm confused if the word fits me or not. Also, iirc, Stan is a combination of the words "stalker" and "fan". So it's not positive.
Oh, I always thought stan meant stand, like as in I stand Hazel lmao
It might, I have no idea tbh
I think for all of the choices by “stan” they meant the rude ones, not every stan
A stan is an overzealous fan, so essentially a fan but leveled up I guess idk.
I'm not sure but I think I heard "stan" originated with a guy who was so obsessed with some celebrity that he killed himself and his girlfriend when said celebrity did not write back to him or something
Basically Stans are toxic fans, but some people, including myself, will sometimes use "stan" interchangeably with "fan"
I know that origin. It’s from an Eminem song, iirc, no one actually killled their self. It was all part of the songs story
Oh gods the toxic shippers I've found on Pinterest- I'm still afraid
What do you think?
