It’s all because I forgot to bring my lunch today.
I was standing in line at my work’s cafe, waiting for my grilled cheese to go with my tomato soup, when Flashdance… What a Feelin’ came on.
Before I knew it, I was absently bopping my head and mouthing along.
Before the song ended, I had an overwhelming desire to watch the film again. I mentioned this to a co-worker. He pointed out that Flashdance is on Netflix. Nooooo! I thought (and said) Noooooo! It will be bad. It will be so bad. It will be [title-redacted-so-as-not-to-hurt-
And then I thought… well… if it’s really bad, I can wash away the bad with the awesomeness of The Avengers (I’ve been on a Loki/Thor kick recently).
And THEN I thought… I could write an Avengers/Flashdance crossover fic where the Avengers have to go undercover as Flashdance dancers for some contrived reason, dancing ridiculously over-choreographed routines that no actual stripper EVER performs! In bright costumes! To cheesy 80’s tunes!!
Just… just imagine: Hulk smash! Water… SPLASH!!
I… I might HAVE to do this.
I’m sorry to the world.
Let this be an object lesson. NEVER forget your lunch!
