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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Try for Success, But Not Too Much Success

In the last few weeks, I’ve seen two of my favorite authors come under fire for being too successful in the Young Adult Literature genre. John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars (which destroyed me) and J. K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter (which raised me) have both been told that their success […]

Media I’m Enjoying Lately

It’s time for a recommendation post! Vices & Virtues – Panic! At The Disco I know I’m about three years late to the party on this one, but maybe other folks missed this amazing album too. They only had one song that got any playtime on the radio. It’s available on Spotify so check it […]

Catching Up

When you’ve got a full time job and things to write, keeping up with your fandoms isn’t always easy. Some weekends, I marathon the shows I care about and try to read as much as I can. I’m known for getting really far behind and then marathoning to get caught up. But there’s actually a […]

New Website Design

I’m sure it’s been noticed that my site is changing. Well, I thought I’d take a few minutes to go over the process here and the reasons for the changes. It’s like a case study but more shoujo! First off, the Name. I realized that no one googles Sheena Bandy unless they already know about […]

Books I Wish Had Bigger Fandoms

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket Okay, I know the movie was garbage. That’s probably why this never exploded like it should have. But I’m sure fandoms can happen in spite of terrible movies. You have a secret organization that picks up smart children and raises them to do good behind the scenes. […]
