I appealed to Jenny to read an older fic for old time’s sake and she was awesome enough to agree. This BTS clip features her reading Kissed By You, a fic that I think the majority of Soompiers will have passed by (at the least) over the years, given its long written lifespan between 2006-2011 (; Thanks to Jenny~

QUICK BITE 6

So I’m sharing a Quick Bite early only because I stumbled upon this real life love story and couldn’t wait til the next time to share it. It’s told through Radiolab’s usual introspective-meets-zany style, which gives it a different flavor/dimension than I think it would have read just on paper. Very poignant and inspiring.

—> For those curious, it’s about a 21 year old art student whose girlfriend gets into a bad accident while riding her bike on the sidewalks of NYC — he rushes to the hospital to find that she’s become potentially blind and deaf. The doctors are close to announcing her as legally dead due to her body’s condition/her inability to respond, when the unthinkable happens…

Other Quick Bites of the day:
