I MET GERARD WAY YOU GUYS. I REPEAT
I, A SIMPLE TUMBLR USER,
MET MY HERO GERARD WAY.
He was literally the sweetest guy ever. I waited in line for 6 hours before I finally got in and as soon as he saw me he smiled and held out his hand and said, “Hi, how are you?” So I shook his hand in disbelief and replied, “I am doing fantastic, how are you?” AND HIS FACE FUCKING LIT UP AND HE WAS LIKE, “I’M GREAT!”
So I gave him my comics to sign and he was very careful in checking the spelling of my name so that he could get it perfect (he did this for everyone) and after I asked him if we could take a picture and he said, “Of course!”
And then after I thanked him but he was like, “Thank YOU” and I started tearing up. I asked if I could hug him and he just smiled and stood up and hugged me and I thanked him again. Then I walked away shaking and as soon as I got out of the store I started crying because he was so nice to everyone.
I’ve never met a celebrity/band member who was THAT nice to everyone. And you could tell that he genuinely cared about everyone who was there to see him. Honestly it was one of the best moments of my life.
I cannot put into words how much that 2 minute interaction meant to me. All I can say is thank you Gerard Way.
