Moe (萌え, Moe? /mo.e/, pronounced "mo-eh" literally "budding", as with a plant) is a Japanese slang word originally referring to fetish for or love for characters in video games or anime and manga. For example, 眼鏡っ娘萌え, meganekko-moe, "glasses-girl moe", describes a person who is attracted to fictional characters with eyeglasses. The term has come to be used as a general term for a hobby, enthusiasm, or fetish (non-sexual). For instance, 鉄道萌え, tetsudō-moe, "train moe", is simply a passionate interest in trains.

"Moe!" is also used within anime fandom as an interjection referring to a character the speaker considers to be a moekko. It is even used in some anime, such as Ouran High School Host Club, Lucky Star, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Both the spellings moe and moé are used in English.[1] Some writers add an accent mark in an attempt to indicate that the word should be pronounced as two morae, "mo" and "e", but this usage does not conform to any standard of romanization.

I thought I loved anime, but I'm just a "watcher" apparently. XD
And I'm fairly sure I would have scored more points a few years ago when I was like.. 14 - 17... I guess my priorities changed. D: Ohhohoohh.. the self-realization dramaaa

And I'm not sure writing a fanfic should weigh as many points as spending half of your paycheck on fandom.. <3 <3 <3
