Seriously my friends… Black Mirror episode “San Junipero” (se04 ep03) made my wlw heart explode with joy. Lesbian and Bi women represented and portrayed so beautifully. It was a tasty, tasty treat after a long period of “let’s kill all the happy wlw characters and also bisexuality doesn’t exist” in recent media.
I loved the 80′s atmosphere and I loved the fact that it was a “watch this episode two times and on the 2nd time you’ll understand everything better and go OHHHH” kind of an episode.
Black Mirror episodes are “stand-alone” episodes so you don’t need to watch the whole series to get this episode - just go watch this one. That is my sexuality. That is my aesthetics. That is my kind of love story. That is my heart melting.
In a city where angels are overthrown by devils with ugly minds and beautiful faces, two souls that are no saints fell in to each other. Nothing like tornado or volcano can play the role of their chaos. Nothing like Romeo or Juliet could come close mimicking their love. The forbidden bond told in the same old tales and songs kindled like wild fire every time their lips touched.
This is a tale of their own, a tale that stirs the anger of the gods above.
