So as December hits, I'm reminded of the fact that there is a SMALL POSSIBILITY that, um, we're all getting thrown into a winter holiday Hallmark movie. Or, as it stands to reason given past instances, several winter holiday Hallmark movies
.What the fuck
, you may ask?
Well, there's a reality altering witch among us (Hi, not you Wanda! ♥ There's others!) that's been looking for her special someone for the past few decades. She occasionally finds her wintertime beau and we'll get a couple of years of relative peace during this time of year. Since the Outlanders have arrived, we haven't experienced this phenomenon. However, sources (read: witchy gossip among the Ankou grannies) have told me that Ms. Hallmark just broke up with her bff of the last three years and so we might be in for it this year.
So what are we in for?
A town called Serendipity Hills appears for a few days. Some of us locals get pulled into it to live out fairly cheesy holiday movie tropes, while Ms. Hallmark tries to find her new Mr. Hallmark. Other than living out a few days of gazebo dates, winter bake offs, log cabin snowstorms, and fireplace romances, not much else happens. Serendipity Hills also shows up on our televisions as a show so we can catch the latest romances as they're happening. And from all past experience, everything that happens is something our inner selves want to have happen, it's just a little holiday love magic setting the mood. The locals that do get pulled in sometimes have new names and backstories, but at their core, are still themselves.
We've also found that the people that get pulled in want
to get pulled in at some level, so it's become tradition to let it run its course. I got a girlfriend out of it a few years back. Ask me about my Hallmark persona. Also, trying to pull anyone out never works, so we simply don't try anymore. Does Ms. Hallmark need therapy? Probably. But I'm not the one to tell the reality altering witch what to do.
So head's up, weird shit might happen this month (as always), but it's fairly harmless. Do I have anymore answers than what I wrote here? No. Are there whole viewing parties dedicated to Serendipity Hills? Yes. Hit me up, I'll send you a list of the best ones if this does go down.EDIT: Hallmark definition
for the uninitiated.
