a 8-15 year old who tries their best to seem 'different' or 'quirky' by pretending to be depressed / pretend to be having mental illnesses / or pretending to be committing to unhealthy coping mechanisms (self harm). they usually do it for validation and sympathy when the truth is that they're completely fine or just basically lying the whole time.

examples of these kids can be seen in subreddits like r/im14andthisisdeep following the 'fake deep' trend and the commonly seen fetishization/glorification of mental illness and mentally ill people.
"I hate edgy-quirky kids."
