Yes, you read it correctly! Spy dramas and novels are big with me so, if you want your dose of spy drama and spy romance, tune in.
I was just skimming through a series of things of watch or read when a ‘Korean Drama Man to Man’ caught my eye. It has one of the actors I have been meaning to see in serious roles and when I saw him in a spy-romance it was a treat to me.
If you’d ask me to read a complete romance novel, I’ll probably skip until that mood sets in (only happens once in every 6 months) but if you’d ask me for something action and thrill packed, I am always game.
Every once in a while, every reader gets high on a particular genre. Mine usually constitute of something that has a few drops of romance on the side with a big dose of spy-revenge-action-secret identity (or it has to be a complete fantasy series but that is a story for another time).
The big question is, what happens when you and I get high on a genre?
I don’t know about you but I quench it with everything possible. I read novels, I read wattpad stories, I read short stories around it, I read poems, I read fan fictions, I hunt down dramas to watch, I binge watch Korean and English series, I make a list of series I’d watch in that genre, I drag out my old list from the last time I went through that phase, I watch two series simultaneous at a time too and I get stuck in a room for days. I even watch FMVs (Fanmade Music Videos) of dramas and books.
It does’t end there. I drown in random snippets and prompts and post them on Instagram, I write random snippets and prompts as well, I write short stories around it. I create small fanfics on Wattpad with my favorite characters.
Writing this post early in the morning of 15th March is a big proof that it has already started.
The next big question is, how long will this last?
The answer lies in how good the drama/novel was, that got me high in the first place. It will last for a day, a week, a month or even 3 months. You may even see a drift to fantasy section but the core remains the same spy-action-romance. I have a feeling this phase will only last for 3 days to a week.
I can even tell you right now what I am going to do next:
Read short spy stories on Wattpad and write snippets and post them on Instagram!
Bye, the stories are calling me!
