I write about fandom, mental illness, and chronic illness (sometimes all three at once). Sometimes I try to be encouraging. Bad puns are often involved.
This week, I achieved my lifelong childhood dream of becoming an android.
Slingshot's Emmy nomination and Cordova-Buckley's post about it prompts a bigger discussion about the impact Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Slingshot have on the landscape of pop culture.
Harry Potter and Parks and Recreation are two fandoms that have entered the pop culture lexicon. Whether you love one, the other, or both of them, there's no arguing that they're certainly legendary. However, have you ever considered combining the two?
Baby Driver is a rare gem in a sea of easily forgettable films.
Jaime Heller and I have assembled some of our favorite ocean-related books to read. Grab your trident and let's begin!
Being a fan can be exhilarating, but it can also be isolating. I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel weird for loving fictional characters and worlds so much. PSA: you are not weird. You are perfectly valid, and so are your experiences with stories. I've found five published stories that prove it!
Diana and Moana were both raised on an island, they're both daughters of the ruler of that island, and they're both sailors. The similarities just go on. I'm telling you, these two were destined to meet.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s season 4 wrapped up in May, leaving me with many questions. Here's what I'm hoping to see when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns next year.

Was it a unique, explosive combination of all four? Whatever it was, I immediately stopped, took a few steps backward, and picked this book up off the shelf.
I was falling apart. In the midst of all this, my dad decided it was time that I watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I had no idea that it would shape me for the rest of my life.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s fourth season concluded a few weeks ago, and I don't know about you, but that season left me pretty breathless. Now that the season is complete, let's look back on how it all went down.
Being a nerd or a fangirl can be a lonely experience. Not everyone is in love with imaginary things and worlds, after all. Before the internet, I felt totally alone and embarrassed about the things I loved. Thanks to some awesome resources, I don't feel that way anymore.
Listen. I know we’ve all done it. Why does Netflix have that automatic play feature if they don’t want us to use it? I’m not going to judge. Fangirls gotta fangirl. Netflix marathons can be wonderful and necessary. Here’s how you can make that process a little more comfortable.
One of the things I'm not quiet about is my absolute love of Marvel superheroes, both the movies and the comics.
