I actually remember my descend into Idol Hell very well:

It was July 2018 and I had an internship at an art school. There was a girl and I overheard her talking about her Therapist and my first thought was "I need get to know her". The next day, we actually started talking! A lot! I remember her saying "You speak my language" when I finished her vine references lol. She eventually asked me if I like anime and I was just like yeah a bit. She then mentioned Love Live to me. I've heard about it but never bothered watching the Anime. I learned that she does cosplay and tbh I've also wanted to try that. "Do you want to join my Idol group?" and yes, I did want to join.

I had no idea about Love Live but there I was, ready to order a Kanan wig. Of course, I did watch the Anime shortly after and I was amazed. I loved the designs of the characters and at first I fell in love with Kanan because I already had her wig and it would have been a shame if I didn't like her. But after a while Yoshi- I mean Yohane became my best girl. I was for some reason actually able to relate to her. To this day she is my all-time best girl. I love her edgy persona but also how she is an outcast because of the way she to acts, how she feels that everything in her life goes wrong. All of these are things I can actually relate to.

A few weeks later, after watching the anime, my friend from before showed me llsif and it all went downhill from there. Now, about a year later, I have learned a bunch of LL dances, switched from cosplaying Kanan in my group to Yohane, not a single day has passed where I didn't play LLSIF (or LLSIFAS) and I've met so many different people thanks to the LL and the Cosplay Community. Thank god I took that internship
