cringey tv trope
that hollywood thing when someone blurts out "I love you" and is, like, did I just say that, and the other person is, like, *shocked* and *flustered* (and it's a whole other thing when it turns out they're "not on the same page") and literally everyone who happened to be around gasps as if it were a straight up proposal or something. what?
Thought this might be a perfect place to share my bilingual* short story (ru/en).
*-with occasional insertions of phrases in de/fr
There was a moment when my language of choice split, I was torn and just stopped working on the story at all.
Years later I was finally ready to accept that I didn't have to choose. "Why not both? Why not all of them?" Especially since it made sense narratively.
