You know when you read about a world and have those moments of warmth when you're daydreaming about a reality that you want and wish you could make for yourself?? that overwhelming urge to be a part of the story and not just read about it??See I’m here but I’m only here because I haven’t learned how to hack myself into warcross yetSo here's how the story goesEmika Chen A tattooed rainbow haired skateboarding bounty hunteress hacks into the opening ceremony of a world wide well known virtual game WarcrossWhat follows Tokyo A 10 million offer A last minute player Dark net Illegal auctions Unexpected friendships And than anything Emika has ever signed up forTrust me when I say that this book will take you to surprising emotional places It's action packed fast paced and the euivalent of having a million clementines thrown at your body at the same time There will be moments when you'll be so incredibly emotional and high strung and anxious and overall bursting at the seams and moments that would feel like you'd been hit over the head with a baseball bat and then told to just forget about it✨ WARCROSS THE GAME VIRTUAL REALITY Some people still say that Warcross is just a stupid game Others say it's a revolution But for me and millions of others it's the only foolproof way to forget our troubles tonight I can join in with everyone else put on my glasses and watch magic happen Warcross is actually than a video game See it's like a real time window into some alternate reality where you can transcend space and time and logic to hunt down artifacts and eliminate your foes It's iconic and also the allegory for the emotional experience of existence for every gamer and it now offically joins uidditch and exy as the only three activities that have ever truly brought me joy in this unending hellscape of a lifeI've never wanted than to be awake and untrapped within the physics of this body and be physically transported into that realm just to play the fucking Warcross game uuh never mind the fact that every competitive match I've ever played was just me as a support consistently thanking my teammates for saving my life or the fact that when I got my first gameboy and played Super Mario with such a deranged and obsessive tenacity that I would literally shut down the game whenever the ending wasn’t towards my favorLET ME LIVEYou know what though? here's an especially big Fuck You to technology for not stepping up her game and being beaten with a bound bundle of dead tree Because this book made me really realize the things we could probably be doing with our time and advanced understanding of technology anything other than 360 degree selfies and windows 10Just how is it 2017 and I can't walk out of my house with glitter lipstick and virtually shimmering skin full body highlight and virtual knee length hair I have virtual wings and a virtual tiger pet trotting at my side this is actually canon in the book For fuck's sake I can’t even print out an essay without scraping out the eardrums of everyone in a 50m radius✨ CHARACTERS Do you ever meet a fictional character and suddenly you're hit with a wave of love so comfortable and deep that you feel like you've already loved this person for thousands of years??This is literally about everyone is this bookWarcross was just good at handling the characters that I could actually hear their dialogue in their voices and actually imagine the scenarios being presented and wish I could astral project into their bodies and watch it all play outWe have such a diverse cast of characters with told stories that are so vague and so uniue and so complexe and untold stories that will make you wish you could time travel to 2018 and read the seuel asapBut mainly Emika Chen with her rainbow hair her sleeve tattoos and her attitude that resembles a rough sketch of something nice Hideo Tanaka who's made of sugar spice and everything kind but also made of carbon atoms and lies also he has a british accent and wears nice shirts with his sleeves rolled up to the elbows and also cooks for his parents??? where's my inhaler I might breathe out my kidneysAnd the rest of the characters who captain teams and are super talented and can code and hack technology while I'm just here on the internet exploring the existential dread that’s latent in all of us and waiting for memes to come my way because I'm just a passive meme consumer not even contributing anything to the meme economy✨ THE ROMANCE The fact that I am making an entire section just about this is prove enough of my passion Aka I SHIP IT SO FUCKIGN HARD YOU GUYSI’m trying to deconstruct my ideas about romantic love especially the ship where person A is a successful billionaire and person B is a penniless outlaw but it's really hard when my reptile brain literally has the phrase “I SHIP IT” on repeat like I know better but I also can’t help myself from giving into this brand of brainwashing I guess my heart is just too soft when it comes to this tropeI have a marshmallow heart a cotton candy heart a goddamn foam mattress heartAnyways thank you Marie Lu for the new unexpected obsession that was nice and cruelJUST LIKE THAT ENDINGReread 1017 if you're looking for me I'll be in the trash BECAUSE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I AM FOR THIS BOOK
