I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my TWO (2) degrees. I love research and I’m the kind of nerd that likes analyzing the heck out of every single piece of media I consume so expect a lot of that here.

This blog focuses on analysis of nerdy media, book reviews, and lots of commentary about race in fandom and the source media that spawns our favorite fandoms.

This ship is relatively popular in … Continue reading
As we can see with James Olsen, the disgusting way folks in fandom treat and talk about Black male characters and performers. is just going to continue until non-Black fans step up and throw away the script they’re adhering to so hard. Continue reading
In super awesome and (probably super surprising) news, I’ve got a gosh-darned BOOK coming out in a MONTH! Judge Anderson: Flytrap, my second novella and my first work published in a standalone book with my name on the cover, is … Continue reading
