What are we talking about? Klendez. And no, not just the existence of two people named Lindsay Mendez and Derek Klena or my personal secondhand embarrassment over couple names. This post is about the people in this world who write fanfiction that is romantic and sexual in nature about these two very real very normal actors and post it on the internet.
If you really want to read an example or gape in horror: here it is!
Why is this crazy? Beyond the fact that Lindsay and Derek who are real people and both seriously involved with not each other, it’s really really weird to take a performer you like and begin crafting elaborate fantasies about their personal life for your own personal enjoyment. These are people who give their all to entertain you onstage, the least you could do is respect them and not turn them into characters to play with and put into situations that real-actual Lindsay and Derek would probably find WICKED uncomfortable.
