If it’s not Dyson on the screen…then why am I watching?
Ladies, these days staying sane means daydreaming about Dyson and the TV show LOST GIRL. I mean, what are you going to do during that long span of time when there’s only football on TV and re-runs? Lost Girl is a great TV show to watch around the fall holidays. Those fae folk are just naturally festive and there’s a ye olde harvest-solstice-spirit-y vibe that just emanates from the show.
I first saw a glimpse of LOST GIRL on Hulu.com–but they only had clips, not a full episode. Then I was on holiday batting around the remote control and came across a scene where Dyson was “healing” Bo the succubus by having sex with her. Yes, yes, and more yes! Yet it seemed that was just a kind of one time-y thing. I frowned and moved on to other channels. Until Kiersten Hallie Krum joined Lady Smut, and she had this post about wolves.
Okay, maybe her eyes are really blue? I don’t know, but it’s a really cool look.
So I just had to take another look. I started watching the show and I was bitten–bitten hard. Yes, there’s a lot about Lost Girl that people love in terms of world building. And yes, Kenzie, the side kick is so fascinating and fun to watch with her eyes that look like green beach glass. But really, the alpha and omega of that show for me is Dyson.
There is Bo’s character arc, (yawn) and the arc of what’s going on in Fae land (meh), and then there is Dyson’s feelings for/being there for Bo (!).
He’s got a voice that’s like a black bear licking honey. He’s got a body that does not stop, despite being forced to wear dorky fae vests. He’s a long cool glass of water, and he makes me thirsty. His character and how the actor embodies the character is like the relaxing sensations of a vibrating…foot massager.
Why doesn’t Bo go for Kenzi? I don’t get it. Why doesn’t Dyson go for her either? Really don’t get it.
However, if you haven’t watched the show yet, you should brace yourself. At one point they pull the rug out from under you. I’m squinting with one hand in front of me while looking ahead for Season Two. Part of Lost Girl’s unique niche is that Bo is bi. I’m thinking season number two is all about giving her a lot more girl time…which is okay…I guess…It’s just that for me the only reason I’m watching the show is Dyson, so I’m hoping that whatever he’s doing while kicking his heels as Bo gets it on in Lady Land is as good as the stuff in Season One.
Meanwhile, here’s something for your Xmas wish list. I’ve been reading HARD AS IT GETS a romantic suspense book that’s coming out by Lauren Kaye. Sounds like an erotic romance with that title–but it’s a little more trad romance. Loving it — even if you’re not so into tattoos (and I’m not), Kaye will keep you zooming through the pages with her taut hero and his gritty world. It’s available for pre-order here.
I’m also squealing over the fact that I just got ONYX by Jennifer Armentrout in the mail — this is the follow up to OBSIDIAN — the first book in her Lux series. While the books are ostensibly Y.A.-ish, they are hawt.
They really sit on that line between Y.A. and New Adult. I whiffled through Obsidian. Now I am drooling over the amethyst cover and can’t wait until I can start reading it later tonight. In the meanwhile, back to some new chapters for me!
So go over-indulge with a big glop of romance on top of your pecan pie next week. I’ll see ya around the time we start to deck the halls.
Just say no to Xmas creep! — and follow my blog, plz.
