Too Much Information Book Tag

HELLO. I HAVE BEEN DOWN IN THE DUMPS. This week, I've regained some of my motivation and have resumed cooking, reading, and watching TV (mainly Netflix reality shows and Jessica Jones.) Sleep and inspiration, however, continue to elude me. To take my mind off of things, here I am with a lengthy tag that I found… Continue reading Too Much Information Book Tag

Lupercalia Special: Let’s Talk About Ships

Happy Lupercalia! I wanted to do something Valentine's-themed and this is what I came up with. This post will be a mish-mash of surprising trivia and strong opinions about various fictional romances. As should be obvious, spoilers ahead. The Infernal Devices throuple I just learned this bit of trivia from reading Jess' blog post about literary romances. Fun… Continue reading Lupercalia Special: Let’s Talk About Ships

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

Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together

Today's Top 5 Tuesday is JUICY. I LOVE trashing ships. It's one of my favorite pastimes. I hate some very popular ships. I think this is due in large part to: a dearth of inspiring mainstream queer ships lower standards for male love interests I would have given an example of that second one, but… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together

Katie at Pages and Pugs made this tag along with the graphics - it's her first book tag and I think she did a great job! (Also, Pages… Continue reading The Lover Book Tag: Round Five

Halsey Book Tag

I joked about doing a Lana Del Rey recommendations tag. Insteaaaaad... ...I FOUND A HALSEY BOOK TAG! I've had a crush on Halsey since she dropped Badlands in 2015. She also serves as my hair inspiration (sorry, Nicholas Petricca.) Am I gushing? I'm really stoked about this tag. Castle Favorite queen DC Bombshells is already the… Continue reading Halsey Book Tag

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Tropes

THIS IS THE TOP TEN TUESDAY I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR. There's a meme going around Twitter where readers who claim to hate cliches cry over their favorite archetypes and genre conventions. The grumpy one loves the sunshine one? I'm tearing up already. (RONAN'S SECOND SECRET WAS ADAM PARRISH.) For my favorite tropes, I chose a… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Tropes

To the anonymous reader who typed "fruits basket ship or rip" into search terms to find my blog: what a GENIUS idea. Do you mind if I use it? Because I would LOVE to produce that type of quality content. Ground Rules I limited this round to characters I felt comfortable shipping (i.e., NOT THE… Continue reading R.I.P.

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
