Okay, so one of my beta readers, Erwin, is obsessed with Vikings. He’s constantly suggesting I add more vikings to whatever I’m writing, regardless of genre/format/etc.. Don’t ask me, I don’t get it. I like the mythology, runes, and the way Chris Hemsworth looks as Thor, but that’s where my interest ends.
Anyway. So while writing Chapter 2 of When Love Dies, I came to a block in the flow, and Erwin once again started suggesting that I add vikings. This is what came from that. Enjoy.
(Spoilers for Chapter 2)
For those of you who are not familiar with the artist Gackt, he is a Japanese rock singer. Lovely voice, gorgeous everything, but good lord, the man cannot dance, and some of his videos are just…no.
I introduced a new friend to Gackt’s music tonight. Warned him about the videos. He went watching anyway. He was lucky. He found the videos that weren’t “No.”. I had to point him to one of my favorite “WTF” videos of his. It’s the music video for “Vanilla” (feel free to look it up for a giggle). His reaction was as follows:
“HE WENT SUPER SAIYAN!!!”
Yes. Yes he did.
