If you were a book nerd like me growing up, the name Lemony Snicket probably fills you with a mixture of excitement and fear. For those who don’t understand, Lemony Snicket is the pen name of Daniel Handler, who wrote A Series of Unfortunate Events.
If you’ve never read A Series of Unfortunate Events, you do not understand my aesthetic and you don’t understand me.

Recently, Netflix announced they would be making a series based on the novels and after the terrible movie adaption, I am thrilled. A few days ago a teaser for the Netflix was apparently released on Youtube and sent the internet into a frenzy.

Unfortunately, the teaser was shown to be made by a very skilled fan. This quote from the first novel seems to fit very well with my feelings.
“The way sadness works is one of the strange riddles of the world.” – Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning

However, Netflix is bound to have something even better in store for the seven volume series. Maybe even hiring the person who created the trailer?
