Welcome to July and another month of Seriously Geeky Sundays! This Sunday honours International Kissing day, which is yet another day I didn’t know existed. It turns out International Kissing day is celebrated tomorrow on the 6th July. So why not think about romance in honour of this. It turns out I am very forgetful about romance in fandoms.
Who is your favourite couple?
I adore Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder from Tangled. They are adorable and I love them. Similarly Anna and Kristoff from Frozen.
What is your favourite romantic scene?
Thinking about romantic scenes has made me realise that I really can’t remember any I have watched recently. I don’t know if this means I have ignored some or just forgotten everything. I assume it is mostly me being forgetful but you never know. So after much thought I have decided that my favourite romantic scene is from One Day at a Time. After a slightly less than romantic Valentines day Elena gives Syd a card. It’s such a geeky touch of 0 and 1s on the outside and red numbers (all other numbers) forming a heart. As in a non-binary heart for Syd. Seeing them tell each other that they loved each other was adorable.
What is the perfect fictional place for a romantic date?
Having visited this place in game recently I would love to go on a date in Altissa (Final Fantasy XV). It is this beautiful city with gondola taxis to take you around the city as well as gorgeous architecture. The stairways and the bridges across the waterways would provide amazing places to walk and travelling by the water to and from the date would be sweet.
Some romantic scenes are adorable, and then some are just plain awkward. What’s the most awkward scene you can recall?
A lot of romance scenes are awkward in games and other media. They just seem so awkward most of the time that none are coming to mind now.
What is your favourite wedding scene?
I think my favourite was Izzie and Alex’s wedding in Grey’s Anatomy. Yes this was years back but it was the build up, surprise and the happiness considering everything else in those storylines that made it so wonderful. It is a special scene and wedding.
Pick a fandom and play kiss/marry/avoid!
I’m sorry at some point I will stop talking about Final Fantasy XV in these posts. However, having such love for all the characters I am going to play this game with them. Also I mean I love them all so avoid is hard… but I’ll start with that. I would avoid Gladio for the sole reason that he wants to train Noctis and I’d make the assumption that he would not be impressed with my distinct lack of strength and athletic ability. I would also be slightly conscious of how unfit I am if I was around him too long as well. I would kiss Ignis. He seems so sweet, is an amazing chef and truly looks after everyone. I adore him but I would marry Prompto. He often feels like he is not good enough or why would he deserve anyone and maybe I relate a bit too much to him. Plus he loves taking photos and takes great shots of their trip so maybe he could help me take better photos.
