Dear Darren Everett Criss,

wewe probably already know this, but it’s all going to be written down here anyway. We here at Fanpop, well, we upendo you.

We upendo wewe for being able to go onstage with nothing but a keyboard and microphone and get every girl in the crowd to scream uncontrollably. We upendo wewe for being human enough to forget the lyrics to a song and not being afraid to admit it. We upendo the fact that wewe can laugh at yourself when wewe make a mistake, and the way that wewe sometimes talk to yourself in third person. We upendo how wewe are so gifted in muziki and can turn a song about skinny jeans, getting drunk, and motel sex into an incredibly heart-wrenching and soul-filled melody.

We upendo the way that wewe can take part in creating something so wonderful as A Very Potter Musical and add to the joy of millions of adoring Potterheads. We upendo that wewe make an even better Harry Potter than Daniel Radcliffe au any other person that would try to play the part. We upendo that wewe are a part of the greatest team on earth: Team Starkid.

We upendo how wewe can take something as simple as a pair of hot pink wayfarers and turn them into a symbol of self expression and loving yourself. We upendo the way wewe always seem to take control of whatever situation life puts wewe in and come out a stronger, zaidi interesting person.

We upendo how your gorgeous hazel eyes light up when wewe are singing, and the way that wewe can’t seem to sit still when wewe are playing the kinanda au giving an interview. We upendo how wewe use your hands to talk, and that wewe do adorable things like ride a bike around The Ellen Degeneres onyesha and don war paint for Coachella. We upendo how wewe can look amazingly hot whether wewe have a buzz cut, an unruly Harry Potter fro, au a dapper Dalton Academy hairstyle. We upendo that wewe have a upendo of Disney songs and sing them whenever wewe get a chance. We upendo that fact that wewe aren’t afraid to play a controversial role as a gay teen on Glee, and that wewe do so with such amazing talent.

Most of all, we upendo that wewe have taught every single one of your mashabiki that being themselves is the greatest thing anyone could ever do.

Thank you, Darren Everett Criss, for being an inspiration to us all and for kicking punda as wewe do it.


Your adoring fans.
