#LoveHacks, Book 2, Chapter 3: My Thoughts
I’m just going to warn you now. There is probably more swearing in this than usual. Which says a lot.
Am I going to have to pay diamonds to cosplay? I’m gonna be real upset if I do, tbh.
FUCKING HELL I DON’T WANT TO PLAY AS SEREENA I DON’T EVEN LIKE HER LET ME BE ME AND HAVE MY BEN
It’s Sereena’s first day of the new quarter at Strickland University and we instantly get to last chapter’s ‘next time’ moment. We bump into a cutie pie and fall to the ground. I hate Sereena, so I’ll blame this on her. Probably is her fault anyway.
Sorry, my bad.
She helps us collect our things and Sereena mentions how her professors already hate her. I don’t blame them. Can we please get this chick’s name and move on, please? I have a con and a man waiting for my arrival.
She’s headed to Lecture Hall C as well, so clearly they’ll walk together and I’m guessing a lecture hall is just a classroom so they’ll have the same class too?. For once I’d like something not so rom-com-y. Make this chick not gay at all but Sereena still falls for her and then the chick realizes she’s maybe falling for Sereena (somehow ‘cause lmao that bitch is terrible) and IMMEDIATELY like shuts her out because how do you deal with your life changing like that and then Sereena is all ‘oh god wtf do i do now what did i do wrong’ and honestly I wouldn’t be mad if they didn’t even get together in the end of this book. Drag that shit out a little bit, make it a bit more realistic than, say, someone getting three marriage proposals and still not knowing which one they want to marry after they already have a fucking husband-to-be selected.
Can we please get this woman’s name already? She claims she’s got an in with the professor, so she won’t go too hard on Sereena. Let that bitch rain acid on her, idgaf.
Aiyana. How do you say that? I-Anna like Anna from Frozen with an I in front of it?
(E-Glesias with a I!)
Wtf is a tizzy?
Someone’s breaking out the obscure words.
Blah, blah, blah. More dialogue that doesn’t give me anything important other than Aiyana wanting to impress Sereena without trying to, and Sereena being impressed for some fucking reason and denying it.
They get to Lecture Hall C and hoo boy, I hope she’s not majoring in that crap. Apparently she’s been kicked out of that classroom and the new class in there is Environmental Studies, who are apparently snobs. I hope Aiyana is an ES major.
Even better, she’s the TA for it. ‘Bout time Sereena got some sort of clapback.
God, I’m glad that shit is over with. Back to me! And my Ben, of course.
Ah hell, she’s spoken one sentence thus far and I feel a diamonds option coming on. Fuck you, PB. I would love to dress as Starfall, because I know Ben would love it. I’ll pass on Kenna because MC looks weird in it. I suppose I’ll go in my everyday wear.
Not everything has to be about money. Somewhere along the line, you forgot about having a fun, enjoyable, playable game, PB. Though I can admit this isn’t nearly as bad as the baseball game where Ben specifically says not to wear purple and WE HAVE TO FUCKING WEAR PURPLE.
‘These Cosplays Are Only As Good As The Real Thing If You Have Money To Waste’
There’s my sweetheat!!! We head to the con!
It’s even more awesome in person!
Ben’s last name is Park? Benjamin Park… Hmm, I prefer Benjamin Burnley, myself, but that’s fine. Park is close to Parker… As a kid (let’s face it, even as an adult) I bet Ben imagined himself as Spider-Man. What little boy or girl hasn’t?
LOVE. ME. SOME. HIM.
He asked for Ben’s autograph! How cool! I’m so proud of him.
I’m here with a real-life celebrity!
Just about everything is a perk when it comes to Ben.
We see fuckface from ROE, and then play a VR demo of The Crown and the Flame. Oh great, we’re at the Iron Empire. I wonder if wearing the Kenna Rys outfit changes this scene up in any way.
A soldier appears and attacks high, so we duck. Then we deflect his sword ‘cause I don’t even know if we can cut through his sword. All we have is Kenna’s short sword!
He lunges for us and holds us up in the air. We kick him in the gut. Then we force him to surrender.
We beat it on the first try, and apparently nobody else has. Sweet! Ben says the Venus Corps panel is about to start, so away we go.
FUCKING HELL I. DO. NOT. CARE. ABOUT. SEREENA. OR. HER. STORY. I. CARE. ABOUT. MINE. AND. BEN’S.
Sereena is a legit cunt. I hate her. So much. She provides nothing but disaster to this series. Your classroom got moved, so fucking what. You probably received an email about the change, but are too irresponsible to check the damn thing. Just because they study the environment, which is pretty god damn important, doesn’t mean they don’t believe in ‘equal rights’. And I’m not sure how Women’s Studies equates to equal rights?
If you’re all about conserving resources, why do you hog student resources?
Like, really? Why is this such a big deal to her? More people are interested in a class that teaches about the environment than one that teaches about women? What even about women does it teach? Will it get you a fucking job? Does Sereena even have a job? Or is she still freeloading off of Brooke and MC?
She deserves the embarrassment. She’s being an asshole for no reason other than to be a brat.
Then she thinks she’s in love because someone schooled her ass. What a self-absorbed cunt. Just because your friends are unwilling to defy you doesn’t mean that the rest of the world will follow suit. That’s not love, idiot.
Why does she even sit through this lecture? For someone who cares so much about Women’s Studies, she had no problem ditching it for something she doesn’t even like.
Aiyana says she hosts a campus radio show, so she’s Outtie 5000. I would be too if I had to come face-to-face with Sereena. She invites her to come along as a special guess, but I will be damned if I spend diamonds on Sereena. I didn’t even spend any for Ben.
She sees someone playing Dopey Cat and then we’re finally back to the con!
It’s post-panel now, and he’s signing autographs while we wait! Love him.
Oh fucking hell, that dude Evan from last book is here. It’s good to see you. It’s not, but I don’t want to be rude. I don’t even remember that date, but I guess he was a jackass and has now apologized for it. Apology accepted. Then he goes off too his friends.
And what was the point of that?
Ben comes back. Believe me, honey, you won’t lose me. I’m far too attached.
I HAVE THE CUTEST BOYFRIEND EVER!!!!!
I HAVE THE CUTEST BOYFRIEND EVER PT. 2!!!!!
AWWWWWW MY BABY IS MOVING UP IN THE WORLD! So the people in charge of Venus Corps are planning a spin-off about Starfall’s teen sidekick, Solaris, and they want Ben to illustrate and write for it!
I am announcing this to you all as if he is a real person and actually my boyfriend.
I need a man. A real man.
OH SHIT ‘BOUT TO GET LAID!
lmao what the hell is up with this weird screen like this isn’t a outfit change scenario
and why is he standing all defensive like that? And bby we need to buy you some jeans. Blue jeans. Idek what color those pants are.
We invite Ben to stay and celebrate!
We change into something more comfortable and poor baby’s too distracted to order food.
MC makes him focus on the menu, so he decides on champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. We drink some champagne and he tells us the story how he got his job in the first place.
We drink some more and then MC goes for a strawberry. We feed Ben a strawberry because it’s not really celebrating him if we eat them all. We kiss him after he’s taken a bite. He deepens the kiss and pulls us to his lap as he sits on the bed and I’m like yo where were we at in the first place?
Kissing from the ear to the collarbone and back? This boy is too sexy. TOO SEXY!
Honestly, I wouldn’t mind if Ben had some pudge to him. I don’t need a six-pack. I can deal with some love handles just fine. >:)
MC, how in the hell are you going to wear a red bra underneath a black piece of lingerie?
Ben and MC get it on and I wonder if his glasses stayed on the whole time? Did they fog up? Did they fall off at some point? I need answers, PB. Also, this wasn’t that great of a scene, guys. Kind of a waste. Only reason it isn’t is because I spent it with my babe.
Great, what was a perfect night turns into more Sereena playtime. Gross.
We’re at a coffee shop and Horatio is behind the counter. Lovely, more of this bullshit.
He’s too much of a perfectionist for this job. I appreciate the effort, but a little faster’d be nice.
So Dopey Cat is getting popular. Mark doesn’t seem to know. And I’m like… How?? My blog isn’t popular in the slightest and I’m all over a single like, dude.He says he doesn’t know because he’s got in phone on silent due to emails from something called Kablammo. Cole douses Horatio in a spit take. I also hate Cole.
Horatio again thinks the universe has sent him a sign, and Cole says Kablammo is a major game publicist. They most likely want to talk to him about Dopey Cat. Why not read the damn emails, Mark? These characters (with the exception of my Ben) are all morons.
He reads the emails and they want to buy the rights to Dopey Cat. he could be rich.
Until next time!
