Behind The Scenes is a monthly feature that celebrates our blog anniversary and personal anniversary every 5th of the month. You get to know what we have been up to, along with our video games, movies and comic book haul.
December was an exciting (and expensive) month!
We did something this year that we actually have never done before – an Advent Calendar! Ok, I hear you, what’s the big deal, you ask? Don’t act so unsurprised, not just any Advent Calendar! For the first half of the month, the gifts we’ve exchanged were specially geeky, no surprise here. We did try to stick to the agreed budget but we failed miserably. Now for the second half of the month, we’ve decided to add an extra rule to make the challenge even more difficult: we’d only be allowed non-material gifts! The main reason for this rule was the fact we were going to spend two weeks in Portugal and we already had more than enough to pack. In the end, it was something creative, fun and unforgettable. Among the gifts we’ve exchanged, there were poems, drawings, letters, love vouchers, game challenges, and Nya even recorded a song!
Before we went to Portugal, we also had a chance to attend a new convention called For The Love Of Sci-Fi. It was short, but we had a great time there. There was even an orchestra playing the Star Wars soundtrack – pretty cool, if you ask us. We bought some goodies, of course, and we took a picture with Jon Campling, also known as King Regis (Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV). Did we just say Final Fantasy? Nya was ecstatic!
The last package we’ve received here at home was, guess what, Nya’s last Kawaii Box. We have a feeling we’ll miss it. Fenrile, as always, seemed to be more excited to open it!
Finally the holidays came for a well deserved rest (perhaps too much?). As we’ve said before, we headed to Nya’s hometown, and we were lucky enough to spend Christmas with part of both families. We also had a chance to play a lot of video-games and enjoy the sunny days. What else? Oh, we got secretly addicted to 90 Day Fiance, but shhhh, don’t tell anyone!
Well, we guess that’s pretty much it… No, wait, the gifts, of course, the gifts!! What, are we gloating now? Well, we don’t care! They are just too awesome to NOT include in this post.
And that was it. We came back to the UK, and we’ve spent a nice and relaxing New Year’s Eve, enjoying each other’s company, watching Black Mirror and fireworks from the warmth of our bed (we’re weird like that, plus we were exhausted from the trip).
Now we can’t wait to hear from you, Silvers. Did you have you enjoy your Christmas holidays? Tell us in the comments how December has treated you.
