Scenario: You and Sunggyu have been dating for a little while, and you really, really want him. Rating: fluff with a smutty ending Word Count: 3361
It was 6:30pm and everything was
perfect. You’d changed your outfit four times already, and finally
settled on a light, summery evening dress with pumps and a cream
cardigan. No tights, so you’d had to spend ages waxing your legs
(such an chore). You’d even painted your toenails to match the dress,
a pastel blue colour. Your hair was styled just right and you were
wearing that cotton scented perfume that Sunggyu told you he liked
last time you’d worn it. As you stood in front of the mirror,
checking your reflection for what must have been the fiftieth time in
the last hour, the door buzzed and your heart fluttered. He was here!
It was date four with Sunggyu. You’d
known him for a while, introduced through mutual friends at some
gathering at an art gallery where you’d both been bored and hadn’t
understood the art on display. A few more chance meetings and you
were pretty sure you liked this guy, even if he seemed to own more
cardigans than your grandmother. He was intelligent, good looking,
and he had a great job. The more you go to know him, the more
he made your heart beat faster, made you giggle in a very girly way,
made you twist your hair in your fingers and lean in closer to hear
what he was saying. Everyone saw it, and there was no surprise when
he eventually asked you out.
Hey guys. Just thought I’d give another quick update. I’ve fallen behind on a lot of my blogs and reviews due to issues relating to my mental health, but I’m slowly starting to get back on track. I’m catching up with Inside No. 9, so I should be up to date with that over the next few days. I’ve been replaying the Mass Effect games in anticipation of Mass Effect Andromeda, which comes out at the end of March. So expect to see reviews on Mass Effect 2 and the DLC this week. I also need to finish my review of BioShock Infinite and Burial At Sea. Those blogs have literally been sat there, half written, since January. So I need to get that out of the way.
I also need to start blogging about the Lucifer comics again. It’s a been a few weeks since I’ve done that. And also A Series Of Unfortunate Events. That’s something I’ve woefully neglected. I’m up to The Ersatz Elevator, which I’m going to have to read again because it’s been two months since I did any kind of blog on the books. But once I finish the books, then I’ll review the Netflix series, which I love by the way. I think it’s a great adaptation. And in case you’re wondering about Iron Fist, I won’t be reviewing that until I’ve finished A Series Of Unfortunate Events, which might take a while knowing me.
Finally there’s Legion. Now… here’s the thing. I’ve only reviewed the first episode and I have been watching the show (it’s an awesome show by the way. I definitely recommend it and it needs the viewers right now because the ratings haven’t been that great, so please watch it if you can. It really could use the support and I promise you won’t be disappointed). The reason I haven’t been doing weekly reviews is partially because it’s actually a very difficult show to talk about. In my spoiler warnings I describe my reviews as an ‘in-depth critical analysis’. With Legion, there has been no in-depth critical analysis. It’s such a weird and mind bending show that whenever I’ve attempted to write a blog on it, it mostly consists of me going ‘WTF is going on?!’ Which isn’t very helpful or informative. So here’s what I’m going to do. There’s 8 episodes in the season. We’re up to episode 5. I’m going to wait 3 weeks. Let the season finish and then review each episode. One episode a day like I do with the Netflix shows. That way it’ll be better for me because I’ll be watching each episode over consecutive days plus I’ll also have the benefit of hindsight, which means I’ll be able to give a more informed opinion that isn’t just me going ‘Huh?!’
