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.

One half of the ship is a down and out reporter who’s having a hard time of things. The other is a hungry-for-brains symbiote, an extraterrestrial blob that thinks violence is both the question being asked and the answer … Continue reading
