The internet is often seen as the source of unique, wacky and delightful people, but one couple in Brisbane, Australia, somehow managed to create some of the most delightful content the web has ever seen.
A quick Google search of Reddit reveals a breathtakingly pretty gallery of love stories. Unlike in many of these photos, though, each of the featured couples was in on the joke.
Alicia Beale and Aleksious Simpkins, who happen to be identical twins, each wrote other stories of love while they wrote their own.
In 2013, Beale decided she wanted to publish a story after attending her first creative writing workshop. She collected 25 memories about their family and friends. She shared it online with Simpkins, who saw the sweet story. He wrote his own story, titled “An Occasional Accident and Other Stories.”
The pair eventually wrote romance stories of their own, but as Simpkins admitted in a Reddit post, “actually, I make a lot of my own hoaxes too.”

So now that everyone seems to be enjoying them, is there any chance of a sequel? “Well, now we have more than one story to adapt into a movie,” Beale told CNN in an email, adding that a show is even in the works: “We already have our script ready for the pilot season.”
