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.
I’ve got an an opinion on basically everything. If you like strong opinions, candid talk about mental/physical health and trauma, and the occasional ode to fictional characters, then you’ll probably love me.
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.

Last year, I said I wasn’t going to do this again. I made a whole thing about it. I was going to pretend that y’all were capable of seeing a racebent character – usually played by a Black character – … Continue reading
Abstract Black Women, Hated: Layers of Misogynoir in Fandom Spaces As fandom spaces become even more active in asking for and creating positive representation about underrepresented identities (i.e., disabled people and queer people), one notable weak spot in fandom representation … Continue reading
Spoilers abound in this unboxing of my first box from @fromkoreawithlove_. This box was a sweet treat for myself and a great deal over on Crate Joy. All of the stuff in the box was fantastic and I’ll definitely be sticking … Continue reading
