Fandom Still Surprises Me

I always knew fanfiction is…strange, but I thought that after these years and all these fandoms, I couldn’t be surprised any more.

And yet, I find I am.

There’s fanfiction of Comedy Nights with Kapil. If you’re Indian, and not living under a rock, you would have at least heard of the show, so I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in.

There’s fanfiction of Comedy Nights with Kapil.

Kapil/Sumona fanfic. Bittu/Manju fanfic. In the Bollywood section of Fanfiction.net. That I stumbled across on the hunt for I don’t even remember what.

(Forgive me for my disjointed incoherence, but the strangeness of the entire episode has left me unable to sentence properly.)

And I know I have no room to talk, given some of my unusual fandoms, but…this is like someone writing fanfic of The Kumars at no. 42. Just. Why?
