(I am a big fan of Transformers. People know it by the hat and necklace I wear, which depicts my favorite faction. The background of my laptop is an image of a member of that faction. At a cafe I am at, a couple men in their twenties are chatting at a nearby table. Note: I am female.)

Guy #1: “Everyone knows that.”

Me: *smirking* “No, not everyone does.”

Guy #1: “Why do you say that?”

Me: “I made this character…”
