So you wanna be a fangirl? Congratulations. You've already taken the first step!
Urban Dictionary defines a fangirl as "a female who has overstepped the line between healthy fandom and indecent obsession," however; regardless of your gender, you can fangirl...and fangirl well.
To get you started, I've put together five general rules with accompanying examples to guide you on your way to proper fangirling + a photo gallery of complete and utter fandemonium.

1) You must cry. And you must cry a lot. But more than anything, you must cry HARD.
