BRB, searching for my own notebook soulmate.
The eight-episode series stars Austin Abrams as Dash and Midori Francis as Lily, two teens who fall in love through, well, a notebook.
Some basic plot: Dash hates Christmas and Lily just wants to fall in love. When Lily leaves a notebook full of clues at The Strand Bookstore, Dash finds it and then they get into a pattern of leaving clues, secrets, and dares in the notebook for the other to find throughout NYC. Throughout the series, they learn all about each other from the notebook, all while leading up to their eventual meetup in person.
Since Dash and Lily don’t actually meet in person until the end of the season, Austin and Midori had to figure out their own way to find chemistry — a notebook.
Midori also remembered that keeping a journal between the two of them was all Austin’s idea.
In an interview with E! News, Midori said , “We kind of kept a little notebook ourselves that we shared back and forth just kind of expressing revealing things to one another, just to get to know each other in a similar way as they were on the show.”
Austin explained that the reason for the notebook was to help them get to know each other in a deeper, more “secretive” way.
Sadly, we’ll never actually know what was in Austin and Midori’s real-life notebook, because they shared that they did, in fact, burn it afterwards.
I guess we’ll just have to leave it up to our imagination!
Be sure to watch Dash & Lily, streaming on Netflix now.
