THINGS THAT BRING ME JOY: “Elite” Season Three

My friend Shane started watching "Elite" and has been sending me Marco Polo messages about it. This is cause for celebration. I've been in love with "Elite" since season one and I haven't been able to share it with any of my friends until now! Season three of "Elite" just came out on Netflix. Last… Continue reading THINGS THAT BRING ME JOY: “Elite” Season Three

Favorite Ship Dynamics

I had an epiphany recently about my favorite type of ship. ("Ship" as in "fictional relationship," not as in "boat.") I used to say my favorite was "enemies to lovers." I knew, though, that that description wasn't quite right. Then I watched The Rise of Skywalker and realized, "Duh...I like Hero x Villain ships." What could… Continue reading Favorite Ship Dynamics

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Book Tag

I've watched maybe ten episodes of Friends in my entire life. (Emer's going to make me watch the series as homework. I just know it.) I did the How I Met Your Mother Thing instead, which was...a mistake. We all know by now that it doesn't take much for me to do a book tag. Emer did this tag on… Continue reading The F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Never Darken My Doorway Again: Fictional Characters I Cannot Forgive

Certain fictional characters fill me with a powerful rage. These characters are rude to my cinnamon rolls, use offensive terminology, emotionally abuse their loved ones, or just generally get on my nerves. The following list contains characters I can never forgive.   (Note: Expect spoilers for every series under the sun...but mostly Harry Potter.) (CW: discussions… Continue reading Never Darken My Doorway Again: Fictional Characters I Cannot Forgive

Lost Girl Book Tag

Last month, Leelynn at Sometimes Leelynn Reads made an original Lost Girl Book Tag. Though I've never watched Lost Girl, I love any excuse to do a tag. (Also, the protagonist is bisexual? Whaaaaat?) Leelynn's blog is very fun; take a look when you have a chance. Also, she made the graphics I'm using! WHAT CAN'T SHE… Continue reading Lost Girl Book Tag

Pre-Netflix Grishaverse Tag

So Netflix is developing a Six of Crows series. I'm still waiting for news on Syfy's Raven Cycle adaptation, but Six of Crows should satisfy me till then. Real-life Jesper, please. Listen: the fans want their favorite series to be respected. And, honestly Netflix, it's best you don't screw up the representation. Make up for canceling Tuca and Bertie. And Sense8. And One… Continue reading Pre-Netflix Grishaverse Tag

My Little Pony Book Tag

Confession: I was a brony. Or...whatever the female equivalent is. In high school and college, many of my guy friends loved My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Once I started watching the show, I got their obsession. The show (at least the early seasons) prioritizes positivity, diversity, and inclusion. It offered a place for boys and… Continue reading My Little Pony Book Tag

Galavant Book Tag

When I get bored, I seek out book tags. I mean, I have IDEAS and stuff, but they're all so SERIOUS and my chest gets tight when I watch the news. I need to have fun. Obviously, that means knitting while bingeing "What/If." In terms of book tags... ...SUSY MADE A GALAVANT BOOK TAG!!! Have… Continue reading Galavant Book Tag

US Abortion Bans

Alabama passed a law on Monday that effectively bans abortion as early as 6 weeks into a pregnancy. Yesterday, the governor of Alabama signed the bill into law. This morning, I saw the news: Missouri passed a similar bill right after the governor's decision. In both states, no exceptions exist for rape or incest. 28… Continue reading US Abortion Bans

How to Ship the Sailor Senshi

In 2012, I came across a drawing of the Sailor Senshi with their season 1 nemeses the Shittenou. I didn't think much of it. I considered it author art. If I were a mangaka, I would draw speculative crack ships ALL the TIME. Then, through rumor and conjecture, I learned this drawing referenced a scrapped… Continue reading How to Ship the Sailor Senshi
