Does anyone else ever get physical shivers/goosebumps when (s)he listen/watch something incredible and touching? (It's more visual+auditory for me and doesn't necessarily happen with reading.)

Today I watched Glee.

Normally, I don't take it seriously. kellychambliss asked a while ago how I was able to watch the show, and I haven't yet been all the way through my inbox and thus haven't answered, but the gist of it is that I don't take it seriously. With everything save school, I excel at taking a step back and not taking things seriously while remaining close enough to find entertainment/appreciation.

Today that was not the case.

Today, I did cry, but I also shivered. I don't get that feeling often. I sat there in a warm room wearing a hoodie and long jammies shivering.

So, if you ever see me watching live music or a show and keeping far away from others so I'm not touched, that's why: I'm shivering. And goodness, can I feel it when people touch me then! It's sensory overload and I just can't deal.

Glee, what have you done to bring me to this state? You aren't supposed to do that. You're in your little 'not serious' box, and I limit you to that, and then you pull this out to break my heart.

Now that I'm emotionally exhausted (combined with my physical exhaustion), it's nap time again.

I do, very much so. Shivers/chills are usually reserved for music/live sensory experiences, though occasionally films as well. Choking up/actual tears for all sorts of things. I often feel things so acutely that there is some sort of physical response.

Yup! That's what I get too. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I used to think I was rather strange.

Actually, a number of times I've cried/shivered at really great fanfic, too. That downright shocked me.
