Once upon a wholesome time, AKA last night, Twitter user Gail Simone asked a simple question: What day was the best nerd-related day in your entire life?

The internet responded in a big way, and the hashtag #MyHappiestNerdDay is officially trending, with more than 2,000 Tweets in response so far. Simone, a writer — specializing in comics — and animator, is pretty bowled over at the response so far and, tbh, so are we.

There are Comic-Con tales, my-idol-followed-me-on-social tales, and just a lot of overall amazing fan goodness. Take a look at some of our favorites below. And if you haven’t already gotten in on the fun, share your #MyHappiestNerdDay answer with us on Twitter @thepopinsider.

We’ll end with one featuring the late, legendary Stan Lee. Do you have tissues ready?! YOU NEED TISSUES.
