Well, I meant to do the first Broody BFF challenge before the deadline. Here’s my excuse.
I was working on my Visa.
WHAT!!! Yay! So as many of you know, I shall be studying abroad in SPAIN this fall, in order to fulfill my Spanish minor requirement and also because if I am offered an opportunity to travel abroad, I will take it, good sir. However, with great power comes great paperwork, and I’ve been working on that for the past several days. Hopefully by Tuesday we can get all my paperwork together for the student Visa, and then we can focus on getting me doctor appointments to prove I shall not spread disease to the masses.
In the meantime, I’ve been doing pretty well at home, splitting my time between my grandparents’ house and my own. I should be spending much more time at home now, though, because we’re focusing on
remodeling rearranging our rooms, so I shall be sharing a bedroom with my smol sister Hope and my tol sister Grace for the rest of the summer. (I’m sure you will hear plenty about them later.) Here’s a pic. (You can see my computer in the background. #meta)
So if you came from Facebook you probably came for the personal update, but if you came from Twitter I know what you’re really here for. The Broody BFF challenge. (I know my audience.)
Today’s prompt is: What’s your favorite romance trope? Explain the feels it gives you!
Hm. This is going to be hard because I’m not really that much of a romance trope. But here goes.
I believe my favorite thing is when the guy and girl meet for the first time and the guy is completely flustered. I just find that so adorable. It’s also cute when the girl’s the one who gets flustered, but for some reason I just like it better when it’s the dude. (Possibly because I like dudes. Go figure.)
Variations on this include:
- I just met you and you’re hot and I don’t know what to do with myself.
- I knew you for a long time and I haven’t really spoken to you because THIS IS HARD
- I have known you for a long time but my feelings have just gotten to the point where I’ve figured out what’s going on and this makes things awkward.
- I hated you and GOSH THIS COMPLICATES THINGS (three cheers for awkward insults)
So yeah. I’m really not one for suave pick-up lines or anything. (Sorry Broody.) More like suave dropping-ketchup-all-over-the-floor.
Wow. All this romantic talk has made ME feel awkward. So I’m going to add just one more quick thing and then we’ll be done. In real life when guys are awkward to me, I find it so adorable that I spontaneously combust into equal and opposite awkwardness. I’d love to see this in fiction as well. Mostly because I as a reader would die of butterfly-like feels and awkwardness and would probably scream into a pillow. In fact —

I’m gonna go now. I’ll be more intelligible next time.
Stay crazy, friends!
