I remember sitting in the science wing during lunch at high school. We played games there because as Freshmen when we sat outside the football players would throw fruit at us and we could never figure out exactly who was doing it. Granted by my Senior year we stayed there cause it was our home. However, the long black coats, combat boots, and spikes seemed to get a different response than previous.

Never be afraid to do what you enjoy.
If you haven’t watched Critical Role do it now! (Though you’ll spend the rest of your gaming days wish Matt Mercer was your DM.)
