STARKID'S AFFIRMATION
believe that everyone's genitals should sing.l believe all lions are headmasters at schools on distant planets.l believe Redvines are the answer to all life's problems. I believe that a colourful pair of sunglasses are the ultimate accessory. I believe thatAnn Arbor Michigan is a better vacation spot than DisneyWorld (unless the Starkids are at DisneyWorld, in that case the ultimate vacation destination is actually DisneyWorld.l believe to be wary when using the potty'. I believe that sock drawers are the best place to be when you're feeling down.I believe that it is weird that they have a boy play Draco Malfoy in the movies-what's with that? I believe that you should listen to your heart.l believe in Zefron because he is so charismatic.l believe everything has its place. I believe that Darren Criss is going somewhere big and fast, and yet I will never forget it all started with the boy sitting in the dark onstage. I believe in saving Calvin.l believe that no one really knows what a true Hufflepuff is. I believe that you have to be stronger than a manyou have to be aWOMAN.I believe in Joey Richter's crooked jaw.l believe that it's really hard to read Snape in the Harry Potter books without hearing Joe Moses. I believe that I might be in danger of falling in love with Hermione Granger. I believe I spend entirely too much money at the Ann ArborTShirt Company website.l believe that there is a real life Chip Skylark and that he still needs to make the ShinyTeeth video.l believe that the best way to defeat a beast is through the power of song.l believe the world should be pink because that would be really cool.l believe that no one needs to say goodbye. I believe in baked potatoes. I believe in a fandom so intense that it just takes a few simple clicks to make you feel like a part of something big. I believe in checking the Starkid facebook page obsessively throughout the day.l believe that I less than three all the lucky people who got to see Starship but haven't spoiled it for the rest of us. I believe that there is a reason that the glee version of Teenage Dream was the bestselling glee song everi and he's got the voice of a wizard angel. I believe in getting a twitter account just to follow the Starkids. I believe in laughing to myself every time a random person asks "did you get my text?", and I believe there is nothing wrong with getting weird looks. I believe in random sing-along sessions, even if it has to be by myself. I believe it is impossible to watch a Harry Potter movie without dying every time Draco yells "my father will hear of this!" I believe that Disney songs only sound right when they are played on the guitar by a cute curly haired boy in his bedroom. I believe that happiness is as simple as a pack of Doublestuf Oreos and a couple hours of online musicals. I believe that there is nothing wrong with being obsessed with something, especially if that thing is so freakin' awesome. I believe in a part of something bigger: than all of us. I believe in a community of dorky, life-loving fans that are spread across the world, and yet share the love of a few viralYouTube videos. I believe that the internet does not have to be an evil place; it can be a place for you to have a second family. I believe in the little theatre group that could. I believe that we are, indeed, all in this togethen and that is totally awesome. I believe that this must be how it feels to have a home. I believe that I am not alone. I believe I can do anything in the world, because these guys have shown me it is possible.I believe in myself. I BELIEVE lN TEAM STARKID.

I AM A STARKID.

I believe that I gotta get back

to Hogwarts.l

My name is Jocelyn Hannusch and, like hundreds of thousands of others, I am a Starkid. I discovered AVery Potter Musical in February 2010, and to be quite honest I have not been the same since. Never had I come across something on the internet that made me laugh and smile as much as that show. What really caught me was that it wasn't just laughout-loud funny; it was also clever and heartfelt in all the right places, and best of all it did not put Harry Pofter down, it just showed it in a different light. I love musical theatre and I love Harry Potter - so put 'em together and what have you got? My most favourite thing in the whole world - and I really mean that.
Being part of the Starkid community is something I will never truly be able to put into words, but "The Starkid Affirmation" was one attempt. lt did not take me long to write because it was honestly something I felt every day. I am still shocked that the document spread throughout the Starkid fandom, and because it did, I have made many friends with whom I get to laugh, share stories, and act crazy. When the Affirmation reappeared on the Starkid facebook page one day, Jennifer Simone had a brilliant idea. She said that I should copy all of the photos'comments, where people had written "my name is.......and lam a Starkid", and give it to you guys at Leaky Con, where I had been planning to give you guys a copy anyway. From that little suggestion, this project was born. I created a facebook group where it explained how people could make a picture or a write-up of what Starkid was to them, and they had to include somewhere "my name is .... and I am a Starkid". Not only did I get a collection of crazy, unique, and often touching entries, the group itself turned into a tight-knit family and we have had lots of fun making covers of songs, coming up with creative ideas and stories, and posting Harry Potter/Mean Cirls crossovers. lt has been an incredible experience, and it's all because of you. Being a part of that Iittle group, and the entire Starkid family in general, has just reiterated why I wanted to write the Affirmation in the first place. I truly do believe in a community of dorky, life-loving fans that are spread across the world, and yet share the love of a few viralYouTube videos. lt doesn't mafter where we are, where we've been, or even where we are going. Right now, in these moments, we are all here with one another, laughing and crying in celebration of all things Starkid Potter. Thank you, from the bottom of my tap-dancing heart, for everything you do. I wish each and every one of you the best of luck in your futures, and always keep in mind that your fans will always be there to help you maaaaaaaake it throooooooooooough. Love, always and forever, Jocelyn Hannusch Thunder Bay, Ontario (THAT'S IN CANADA!)

Dear Team Starkid, There is so much that I could say to all of you, so much that I love about you guys. But instead of wasting your time I will affempt to say it all in one very long, run-on sentence... Thank you for just being a group of extremely talented young people doing what you love, with the people that you love, thanks for making me laugh, inspiring me, entertaining me, and as one young wizard once said "this must be how it feels to have a home" thanks for giving me a home with you and all of your fans where we can just be our silly, goofo, dorky, life-loving selves! Epp Opp Ork Ah Ah!

Because I believe that everything tastes better with Redvines. Because I honestly don't know what I did with my time before

I stumbled upon A Very Potter Musical.

Because it's been a liule less than a year, but it feels like forever. Because my best friend of I

So we could stay up and watch the Starship premiere.

It was me getting hit in the head with

Because we now insult each other the Starkid

toaster; such a spare).

Because I can now express myself with phrases such as

"I'M IN A RAGE!"

Because my cousin thinks 'butt trumpet' is the funniest thing ever.


Because

I love my peeps on the Facebook fan page more than most of the people I've met in real life.

The fact that I enjoy their virtual company is why I post on the fan page more than my profile. Because I leave Facebook for an hour and come back to 85 notifications...

...mostly from Farjana...


...and all Starkid related. To wrap this up before I get too sappy, Starkid has helped me through a lot of tough things lately.

My mom died when I was twelve, and I stopped being the outgoing, bubbly person I once was.
You gave me that back, and I'll probably never get to say it to you in person, but thanhs for that. Anyway, thanks for being the bright spot in my days.

My name is Jennifer Simone, and I am a Starkid. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
Hugs and butterfly kisses,

Your Jennifer.

The Starkid I Believe video


This is Emma F. Milligan, one of my best Starkid friends. One night I saw her Facebook status, which was a line from the hilarious musical The Book of Mormon. After some flailing over our mutual love of musical theatre, she was inspired to write a filk of the number I Believe, because it fit so well with the idea behind the Starkid Affirmation. She wrote the lyrics (with a little help from me) and it hit over 1000 views on youtube within the first three days. Please check out the video- we hope you like it! -Jocelyn Hannusch Original video can be seen here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkHUASn-K6M&feature=feedf

(A few words from Emma herself) Hi guys! My name is Emma, and I would adore you forever if you would a) go watch the video on the tube of you (the mp3 version, not the normal one) and b) send me an email at marypoppins@gmail.com telling me what you think of it! Thank you so much for being your awesome selves, my love for you all knows no bounds

mp3 version can be seen here:


http://www.youtube.com/watch v=YxMHM_4bg70&feature=related

**Disclaimer** Please note that this version of I Believe is a parody from the musical The Book of Mormon, but it is NOT FOR PROFIT, it is just for fun. Emma has made an mp3 le of the song but again, it is available online for free. All of what we do here is for fun, and the last thing in the world we would want to do is to get you guys in trouble.

Lyrics by Emma F. Milligan With help from Jocelyn Hannusch Inspired by I Believe from the hit Broadway ! Musical The Book of Mormon NO COPY WRITE INFRINGEMENT INTENDED. Its all for fun. I know a theater group that is the absolute best. Theyre so awesome I freak out my friends, cause Im so obsessed So, totally awesome Every time I watch their videos, its with them alone I want to be but they live off in Chicago Oh, what's the matter with me? I've always longed to meet them to embrace them in a side-crushing squeeze When is my time to be there? Someone tell me please. Ive adored them since AVPM Ive been only their most devoted fan I braved the lag on the sequel And I plan to do it again Now I must let my freak ag y Im kissing the planet goodbye.. I believe that Redvines can do anything I believe that I am not alone And I believe that Lauren Lopez makes me question my sexuality I am a Starkid, and a Starkid just believes. Now I know I may seem like a fangirl for loving something so much But I deep inside I know Its my soul that they have touched I love everything theyve ever done Even though a ton of it is wrong But"I only need to hear one line of their music To know that I belong

I believe that I wanna be a Starship Ranger I believe in"Joey Richter's crooked jaw And I believe; that Joe Walkers abs make me reafrm my sexuality I am a Starkid And, dead god dang it! a Starkid just believes It doesnt matter if you are A Potter fan or not Youll t right in with an open heart and mind You might go broke buying Redvines Or in their online store But money wont mean a thing when you kick it up a notch and FIND!!!! I believe that Umbridge is yo momma I believe that we're here to get the job done And I believe that they should totally make Shawarmamia into a musical!! You can be a Starkid, a Starkid who just believes! And now I know the song is close to ending But one last thing before I part Starkids the best thing that ever happened to me they are truly a work of art And I know they are the fabric of which my life is made and my undying love for them is never gonna fade!! I believe that Darren Criss is supermegafoxyawsomehot I believe that"Pigfarts really is on Mars And I believe that I gotta get back to Hogwarts, If you believe, Wizard God will reveal it. And you'll know it's all true, you'll just feel it. You'll be a Starkid And feliz navidad!! A Starkid just believes!" Oh, I believe. I believe."

THANK YOU TEAM STARKID FOR ALL YOU DO.
