Covert Geekery

Recently, my office changed the dress code to limit graphic tees throughout the week. This isn’t a bad thing, of course; we’re a professional office with clients who pop in all the time, so we need to look professional. Pretty important stuff. But how am I supposed to profess my love of Sailor Moon without […]

Memoirs and Life

I read this Memoir, The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer, not too long ago. I loved it and I found myself emotionally attached to many of the people she’d written about. Well, one of those people had Cancer. Even in the book, she talked about the treatments and the worry. I even knew from […]

Trashy Romance and Ballet

In the last few weeks, I have lost myself in a library of trashy Avengers fanfiction (I know, I need Jesus). I’m not talking digging through every piece of Science Bros fiction on AO3. I don’t have a ship, I have an armada. I’ll ship Loki with Tony, Bruce/Hulk, Steve, Darcy, and any and all […]

Frozen and Mental Illness

I’m aware it’s been a couple years since this movie came out but I feel like I’m explaining this to too many people and it would just be easier to have an article I can give them. Okay, so Frozen! I love that movie and it is wonderful and I sing along to the songs […]

Hypocrites and Problematic Faves

I’m a bad feminist. I care about women’s issues and I do notice sexist crap, but I’m much more likely to shake my head and roll my eyes if I like everything else about the person/movie/game/etc being sexist. I won’t deny myself time with someone I enjoy based solely on their problematic views on equality, […]

Making References

As a fangirl and an avid user of the internet, I’ve come to understand something very important: Our language has evolved to include memes. The internet speaks in a language of text and pictures where it can be assumed that a large portion of your audience understands what you’re talking about. Visual Media like Comics […]

Time For Some Awesome Things

A lot has gone on this week in the nerdy parts of the internet. Unfortunately, a lot of that is related to both the Games and Comics industry being unsafe spaces for the marginalized. I think it’s time for some awesome things, cause it can’t all be awful things. First off, Amanda Palmer and Neil […]

Real Person Fandoms: Don’t Be Creepy

There’s something that I’ve been seeing a lot in fandom that has really creeped me out. Real Person Fandoms are fine most of the time, but they have a responsibility towards the bands/actors/whatever they’re celebrating. They need to not cross the line into being creepy and I’m afraid I’ve seen a lot of that going […]

Fangirl Problems

Someone asking you what you’re reading while you’re reading fic I get home from work and try to catch up on all the roleplay threads I read on Tumblr. A lot of the time, I have to do it while sitting on the couch in the living room with my roommate. “What are you reading?” […]

Grown-up Love and Nostalgia

Romance has always been really hard for me. People would hit on me and tell me their friends liked me as a joke throughout middle school and high school. I was the weird fat girl. I had a friend or two, but I was not a romantic resource for anyone. By the time I went […]
