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.

No, there’s not some new comic out that you’re all missing. This NCBD I only got one book and it was last month’s Jem. I’m not writing about the series just yet because I’m waiting to get the last issue. … Continue reading
Content warnings for discussion of abuse/abusive relationships with regard to Joker/Harley and Harley/Ivy. Reboots can range from the mild to the large. Some are just focused on company-wide changes in diversity and bringing women/characters of color to the forefront. They’re … Continue reading
Why are comic book fans so darn mad when a comic book character gets the racebending treatment?
For the most part, comic book fans are so very predictable when it comes to race.

I am really into making lists right now so here are 9 things that I loved, liked, or lost time thinking about while reading (and rereading) Grayson #9. Continue reading
I adore the idea of a Gwen Stacy month for variant covers. For years I’ve been peeved that the most common thing she’s been known for as a character is something super sucky.
