Sense8  Character Appreciation Day - Sun Bak

The magnificent and divine Sun Bak has her day today.  

A million thanks to @thegirlfromoverthepond, who is a Sense8 enthusiast and a phenomenal writer herself. She is living these moments with me as a writer and a fan and I’m so grateful for her support.

Please, keep writing, keep tweeting, keep sending those flip-flops! Let’s not lose momentum now.

(Wonder what I’m doing here? Check out the Character Appreciation Days Post here and my post about it here).

I really like dirty sci-fi. I like the idea of a future where we have advanced technologically, but realised that it’s human nature to trash the world, so we just sort of developed technology to live with pollution. A world where toxic smogs roll in and out like the tide, and acid rain falls every day, so people walk around in fashionable designer gasmasks and neon plastic raincoats so they don’t get chemical burns from being outside, but that’s all okay because it’s just part of daily life.

You are only in love when you start seeing beauty in the things you previously found awful. When blood stains on the floor start to look like constellations. When torture feels like a kiss. When every industrial skyline looks like a sunset. You are only in love when you are in pain.
