The people who take stock photos totally get what it means to be a teen in 2016, you know. They're like totally 'down with the kids'. Don't believe us? OH HO HO, we thought you'd say that - so here's 11 times stock photos perfectly summed up the fandom life.
When you manage not to type I WANT TO WEAR YOUR SKIN in the comment box on your fave's latest instagram post:
When your fave's nudes leak, and everyone's like: 'it's such a lovely evening, let's all take the communal iPad down to the park and have a look at them together'
When you have to pretend to be a functioning human being in front of your mum
Giving zero fucks (ahem) about those new pics of your fave cosying up to someone else. Just look at those fucks you don't give. Just look at them.
When they release new music, and so obviously you head straight for your fave funky wall, and stand in front of it listening to the whole album.
When you see Benjamin leaving the library with that book that's based on a fanfic and you're all like: 'Benjamin you dawg', and he's like: 'swag'.
When you're running away from the latest drama like:
When your mum tells you to get off the internet and go outside so you call your friends and:
When the stock photo teacher asks you to raise your hand if you feel like your soul is dying, because the one you love doesn't even know you exist and only dates models:
When your fave is single again and you throw a stock photo party for one:
When you jam to your fave's tunes in your immaculate pintrest worthy bedroom with your best friends who exist IRL not just online:
100 percent realistic, right?
