I cant quite say how long I've watched his videos for, because it just feels like him and other YouTubers have been part of my life forever. But I'm sure it has been a good few years. That's why it didn't feel real to think that the person I've seen on a screen for so long was right in front of me. Like actually looking at me! And talking to me!
The copy of the book I brought
The most attractive
train selfies in the world
We found the line for his book signing and joined the other hundreds of other fangirls (and some boys) who all seemed to be as excited as we were.
What we did to entertain
ourselves whilst lining up
Then quite possibley one of the best things ever happened. We were lined up, quite near the front, when the camera went past for his vlog. HIS VLOG! We're only in the video for a few seconds in the background but that didn't stop me bursting into tears watching it the next day. Obviously they were tears of joy.
We are on the left of the girl with the blue top
Cant believe how close we were
I could hear his voice from around the corner and then I realised I was actually standing in the same room as him. Then I looked up over the crowd and mangaged to catch a glimse of his hair. As we moved closer I could see more of him, and we carried on moving closer untill my time had come. I was standing right infront of him.
There he is with his friendly smile
Alfie is 100% one of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever met. I know I only saw him for about 1 minute, but you could tell he was greatfull and really cared. Georgie was in front of me in the line so got her book signed first. He apparently drew the heart funny when signing it and said "sorry I messed up the heart" to which she replied "don't worry, its fine you havent". Then when it was my turn I told him "Thank you so much" to which he ACTUALLY REPLIED "Thank you for coming". Its still strange to believe we've had a conversation.
We even took selfies with him!
And I'd also like to say how friendly everyone was there. The security guards outside were helpful, we got chatting with the girls next to us in the line, Alfie himself was so kind. We even went to Costa's afterwards and people were suggesting winter drinks to us. Small acts of kindness like that really make my day... and of course so does meeting YouTubers.
Thank you for reading my little fangirl post. The song of the day is Magic by One Direction because meeting Alfie was pure magic xxx
