Hello, friends, and happy second day of EarperViews! What better way to welcome the second week of September than with my wife’s favorite drink? I sat down with the salted caramel mocha’s competition to see what makes it Earp.
Tell us a little bit about your non-Earper alter ego.
When I’m not Earping, I’m spreading my warm fall goodness in all of the mouths that want it.
How did you find Wynonna Earp and the fandom?
Someone was sipping me on the Game of Thrones set (maybe you heard about me), and I heard some of the props people talking about this show featuring a kickass lady and some sweet, sweet representation. I thought, “That is this latte’s jam!”
Is this your first fandom?
I am embarrassed to admit that I used to be a huge Friends fan. I mean, one of their hangouts was a coffee shop. Too bad about how problematic it is. Oof. That show has not aged well.
What is your favorite fandom memory?
I really like when people Earp their coffees.
What is your favorite con memory?
Meghan Heffern always seeks out an independent coffee shop when she’s at a con, and I appreciate that about her. Makes me feel seen. She’s a good blend, that one.
What is your favorite Wynonna Earp/Earper activity?
Cosplay. One time, I dressed as soothing sunshine herbal tea. Another time, I dressed as Optimug Prime. I tried to get them to hire me as myself, but apparently the ol’ PSL isn’t “Canadian enough.”
What has Wynonna Earp come to mean to you?
Be the person who you know you can be, even if it seems like everyone hates you or finds some reason to pick apart who you are. You can’t change who you are or what your flavor is (which was never supposed to contain pumpkin, but instead be used in conjunction with pumpkin), but what you can change is your pride about your existence. I am a goddamn perfect blend of spices blended with a steamed milk and espresso, and I’ve got work to do.
Are there any pictures you’d like to share of your Wynonna Earp experience?
Well, I tried to get on the show, but there was always an excuse as to why I “wasn’t right for the role,” though I think I would have been amazing.
I would have been great in this scene, but they went with something older, as you can see.
“Jeremy would never drink a PSL in Optimug Prime.” Okay, Andras, I think I know what people would drink, but life your life.
“She can’t drink a PSL. She’s pregnant.”
“We need to use whiskey for historical accuracy.”
“Dolls is allergic to nutmeg.”
And here’s a shot with my cousin, the chestnut latte. It was down to the two of us, and they thought chestnut “fit more with the theme of Kiersten’s sweater.”
What is your favorite use for coconut oil?
If you put it in me, you get a coconut PSL, and you can use that for all of your drink needs at the commune.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you Fandras?
Describe why Fandras is a thing in 7 words or less.
She spices up our life perfectly.
What is your favorite Earp sisters moment?
“I’m not saying it’s gonna be okay. I’m just saying I’m here.”
How have you Earped your life?
Sometimes I pretend like I’m in the well with that tall drink of coffee, Doc Holliday.
What’s the Earpiest thing you’ve ever done?
Well, some people think I shouldn’t be around yet since it isn’t even fall, so I guess you could say that, like Wynonna, I’m pretty good at interrupting. Also, I follow around the wife of the EarperView creator basically wherever she goes, which seems pretty Earpy to me. That Chris loves herself a PSL.
Thanks for reading, friends! See you back here tomorrow! Did this make you chuckle, chortle, or snicker? Consider buying me a coffee!
