About three things I was absolutely positive: First, Benedict Cumberbatch was a British actor. Second, there was a part of him - and I didn't know how dominant that part might be - that just couldn't help but be absolutely flawless. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Fangirl: You're impossibly gorgeous. And talented. Your voice is... like a jaguar in a cello. Your eyes change color... and sometimes you speak like - like you're the most intelligent person I know. You never say or think bad of others; you always stay positive.
Fangirl: How old are you?
Benedict Cumberbatch: Thirty-five.
Fangirl: How long have you been thirty-five?
Benedict Cumberbatch: About nine months and fourteen days, I think.
Fangirl: I know what you are.
Benedict Cumberbatch: Say it... out loud.
Fangirl: A British actor.
Benedict Cumberbatch: Are you afraid?
Fangirl: ... no.
Benedict Cumberbatch: Then ask me the most basic question: Why am I single?
