Oh man. I didn't even like the Harry Potter movies as much, I STILL fangasmed over the exhibit. I'm really glad my girlfriend made me go, haha. (I didn't get sorted, though, because they just asked you what your favorite house was and then pressed that button on the hat XD' I already know I'm a Ravenclaw. Represent.)
-You constantly have to make stupid inside jokes regarding video games or YouTube videos about video games ("But if you do ____ it'll open your Space Inventory," for example) in any moderately appropriate scenario. Bonus points, of course, if no one saw it coming and it still fits perfectly.
-Sometimes before you do something, you feel compelled to roll a D20 to see if you'll do well or not. (Naturally, if it's an attack, you roll the appropriate dice afterwards for damage.)
-You make geeky foods. I haven't made sea salt ice cream, but I'm planning on butterbeer soon, and I've made a Katamari Damaci cake. It had the King of all Cosmos on it and a rainbow. It was delicious.
-You find yourself getting so excited about something you've talked to someone about it for a good half an hour before you've realized how little they probably care. Like how cool it is that my new sewing machine has settings for buttonholes (please note I'm used to working on a 60-year-old machine, so this is awesome to me), or how the combat system works in this newest video game you're playing.
Let's just try one more...
-you spend countless hours and a ridiculous amount of money replicating the clothing, hair, and general look of fictional characters in order to spend money to go to a building with a bunch of other people dressed up that ask for your picture? Maybe? Just maybe? No?
Wow I could go on for ages. It's late. Sorry for the wall of text XD I got carried away
