Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

(John Keats, Bright Star, 1819)


This was SciFi, people and it obviously takes a lot of time traveling through space, but the time these guys were forced to spend without each other was painful…

I loved Phae, the guardian clone. His only purpose in life, why he exists, was to take care of his “Prince”. He was loyal and very kind-hearted, but sooo lonely.

Prince was being held frozen in a sarcophagus and wasn’t supposed to wake up for another 20 years.. One day the lights of the sarcophagus run red and Prince begins to “unfrost”

And then the two meet and boy were they combustible!!

The insta love did feel a bit unrealistic, especially their making love, while aliens were running around
So this was a nice love story that survived time and other obstacles!!

“Can you say that special thing for me, Phae?”
“I love you more than my life, Prince,” I say without thinking about it for a moment.
His eyes sparkle. He sinks his nails into my shoulders, dragging me toward his mouth. “Now I am finally free to say it. I love you too, Phae.
