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.

(Part One) (Part Two) I love James Bond. No shame. Those of y’all that have been around from the beginning of this blog know that I spent half of 2015 writing about James Bond for The Mary Sue. That was … Continue reading
Back in 2015, I devoted pretty much half a year of my life to covering the Bond films for The Mary Sue (except the last one, somehow). I made that franchise my life and it was, for the most part … Continue reading
I’m not going to call myself a James Bond expert or anything so very trite, but I did spend most of last year (and a huge chunk of this year) both having intense opinions on the James Bond film franchise … Continue reading
Sometimes, when it’s very quiet and I close my eyes, I swear that I can hear the brazen, brassy tones of the James Bond theme song playing in the silence. At first, it was a bit worrying. But now, I’m … Continue reading
In case you wanted to pick and choose from different Bond films that I covered while doing the Bond Girl recaps for The MAry Sue, there’s now a handy list of links!
Yesterday I decided to use my last Audible credit on a collection of Ian Fleming short stories. I’m working through Fleming’s original canon very slowly and when I saw that the audiobook for “Octopussy and The Living Daylights, and Other … Continue reading
Here you have it, almost 5000 words on Spectre that looks at the film’s plot, its shortcomings, and my expectations for the film. All of the photographs in this monster baby of a post come from antovolk‘s trailer screencaps on flickr … Continue reading
To be fair, when I open a video talking about fandom sucking, it’s easy to understand why I’m not more popular in fandom spaces. I’m not necessarily nice about certain things, but then — I don’t have to be. Three … Continue reading

I went a bit overboard when it came to getting comics this week so I decided to do little reviews for all of them (in addition to the two big reviews for the comics I already did for Word of … Continue reading
This week’s Bond Girl post is about my favorite Bond film in Pierce Brosnan’s run: GoldenEye. Here’s an excerpt: Alec Trevelyan betrays Bond (and MI6) while his own feelings of betrayal drive him. Of course. He has the requisite tragic backstory … Continue reading
Trying to choose your favorite James Bond actor is like trying to pick your favorite child or your favorite book.
Too many options.
Too many chances to get the whole thing wrong.
It’s not as if the fate of the world hinges on that decision or as if there’s any way to be wrong, but still, when it comes time to pick that one top Bond, I stall. Continue reading
I can’t stop making all of the high-pitched screaming sounds. Not this time.
This week’s Bond Girl post is about the awkwardly-named Octopussy. Here’s an excerpt: I love how take-charge Octopussy is in this. She’s powerful in this film, her gang of smugglers immense enough to fill an entire palace. I think that … Continue reading
