Troy Bolton. Damon Salvatore. Augustus Waters. We totally understand if you have wished for at least one of the names we mentioned to come to life and that's because it's normal to fall in love with fictional characters. They might never be able to love you back, but at least they can guarantee to never hurt you.

Everything's better live and on stage, don't you think? Concerts and theater plays have the power of making us feel that we are more than just audiences, we are actually part of the show.

The best thing about fangirling and happy crushing is there are no expectations or commitments necessary, just pure affection.
