the karate kid, fandom watch party - banzai-larusso
I thought this would be a really cute idea. This fandom is so close-knit and friendly, and watching together just seems like so much fun. So here's some info for you. I hope you'll join us!
WHEN: this friday. i will post the link to the party at 7pm UK time, and we'll give you half an hour to come and join - movie will start playing at 7.30pm!
WHERE & HOW: Netflix! To access NetflixParty/Teleplay, you need to be on a desktop and have the addon installed. Here's the link! Follow the instructions and message me if you need any help! + Netflix US doesn't have tkk, so if you are watching from there, you can download a vpn and you'll be able to connect through a server from the UK or Canada. I suggest this vpn - it's not very expensive and always works). [link-click here]
RULES: I don't like this word, and there is only one.. and it's that we are going to have a limit of pausing the movie only 3 times. I just want to be fair, in case someone really has to leave for a few minutes, but I also don't want to be pausing a lot, because I know that annoys some people!
WHO: Absolutely anyone! And please change your name when you come into the chat so everyone knows who you are <3 (username or real, we don't mind)
ALSO: If this works out and we have a good time, I'm going to set up another 'event', where we will watch 1-3 episodes of Cobra Kai together, perhaps every Friday or/and Saturday!
Please share this post! Let's have a lil movie night together! <3
I love nothing more than a good micro-theme party: i.e. a highly-themed soirée with a small guest list. Mix that with BL, and here's the UWMA watch party I'd love to host in the "after" times.
"Food" (I.E. Mostly Just Sugar)
Unlike many BLs that start on the fluffy side and only occasionally head to darker waters, UWMA unceremoniously drops us in the emotional deep-end from the get-go. This calls for the big guns when it comes to food: desserts are going to be our main course, and there needs to be a LOT of it for coping reasons- extra points for desserts being 1000% on brand for the show. Head to trusty ol' Google/YouTube for the recipes for the traditional Thai desserts Pharm is always baking up.
Our non-dessert must-haves:
Classic Lays: get a bunch of mini bags- they're a triple-threat here as snacks, WinTeam decor AND the sodium will help stem off fluid loss from all your tears. You've been warned.
BBQ anything: another nod to our sweet, ornery Team. Plus, you're going to need the protein to balance out all the sugar you're ingesting.

Iced Caramel Macchiatos (Half Pump Syrup & Don't You Dare Hold the Whip): Win knows how he likes his coffee- just ask Team, he'll tell you. Or he'll show you the illustrated guide on his phone- whichever.
Tissues: don't skimp here- buy a multi-pack and spring for the boujee ones with lotion. If you're marathoning UWMA, your heart is about to go t.h.r.o.u.g.h. it but your skin doesn't have to (thank me later).
Emotional support human/patient pet/stuffed animal: again, for the feels. Cuddle, snuggle and/or sob onto as needed.
Chocolate ice cream: if you're not in a sugar-induced coma yet, enjoy this sad, sweet nod to the final episode.
The music in this show is pretty beautiful and not to be missed:
