Here are some frequently talked about terms here on That’s Normal that you should familiarize yourself with:

2nd hand embarrassment

What happens when we learn you’ve been writing “Harry Potter Slash Fan Fiction


In Real Life. As in “I finally met my friend from that Harry Potter Fan fiction site IRL!”


Joseph Gordon Levitt. He’s full-Jewish but looks half-Asian, wears cardigans & records songs with Zooey Deschanel, that biatch. Often the subject of Test Posts here on TN. Basically a perfect man.

The Gos

Ryan Gosling. If you don’t know who he is, we’re not telling you.

The List

Often called The Freebie 5. It’s what married people do to make it okay to fantasie about someone other than their spouse. It’s what single people call a Friday night.

Slash Fan Fiction

Fan Fiction about two dudes getting it in. Like Damon & Stefan, Harry & Remus, Uncle Jesse & Uncle Joey. (Don’t google that. We warned you)
