I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my MA in Literature. I love research and, no joke, 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.
And if you don’t… oh well!
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.

During this apocalypse, at this moment, one thing has been very comforting to me and it is nostalgia. I’m talking about rewatching the first three seasons of Teen Wolf, watching Smallville, reading books I read when I was a child, and listening to anime theme songs that, when I was a teenaged weeb, I couldn’t get enough of.

ON BUZZSPROUT Episode Notes Last episode, I talked about the wy white women in the Rey/Kylo fandom were going all out to portray John Boyega as a misogynistic monster for an Instagram comment milder (and far less misogynistic) than their … Continue reading
Episode Notes: Content Warnings: I talk explicitly about antiblack racism in fandom and white women weaponizing their femininity in service to it. I also briefly mention how part of this involves setting up a fear of John/that John will assault … Continue reading
At the end of the day, it’s not like I was expecting a single person on this podcast to talk about East Asian antiblackness or antiblackness in general. So I’m not actually trying to place my own burden of responsibility on them. But I feel like it was a bruise on an otherwise genuinely awesome episode because there was no need to zero in on Black Panther in the way they did, I feel like… it wasn’t a great moment and it was unnecessary on top of that.
