Nerdfighters

Nerdfighters originally started with New York Times bestselling author John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) and his brother Hank. A nerdfighter is a person who is proud to be nerdy and intelligent, and who fights to decrease WorldSuck. Nerdfighters are not composed of cells and tissue, but instead made entirely of awesome. Nerdfighters are known to perform their Happy dances when they are joyful, and each Happy dance is unique to its respective Nerdfighter. Nerdfighters are diverse in their hobbies, which can range from writing Nerdfighter songs to playing D&D. Nerdfighters have also been described as someone who is “outgoing, intelligent, and awesome enough to accept nerd as a compliment.”
