* Actor and former NFL player Creator/TerryCrews is a passionate fan of video games and is a particularly big fan of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', so much so that he offered to provide the voice of Doomfist. While he wouldn't get the role, he still expressed approval of Sahr Ngaujah's portrayal of the fan-favorite villain.

Added DiffLines:

* While multiple members of Music/TheBlackDahliaMurder are known for their championing of small-time and obscure acts and efforts to expose them to a wider audience, Trevor Strnad and Alan Cassidy take it even further. The former runs The Obituarist, a column on Metal Injection, where he does a rundown of recent and up-and-coming releases from a wide variety of underground acts, while the latter took it one step further and joined the UK technical death metal outfit Slugdge (which he was a longtime fan of) as a dedicated drummer after they asked him to do session drums on a future release.

They made a point of seeing Vicky on every one of her US tours, even if it meant driving across several states to see her, and were therefore featured in her tour diaries often, and over time she became good friends with them. She named the ''Omen of the Stars'' main character Ivypool after the then-infant of the family, Ivy, and her announcement about a studio acquiring movie rights was a video that included Ivy.

** Su Susann, a fan on Vicky's Facebook page who often answered questions for other fans, was given access as one of the page admins, and who Vicky has given permission to post things on her behalf (such as revealing names of otherwise unnamed characters).
