Nerd Church - Covid 19: Locked Down Again

(Warning: As you can probably tell from the title, this post discussed Coronavirus/Covid 19, Lockdowns, and people acting like petulant children)


I'm in a local Lockdown.

...Along with nearly half of the population of Wales, and nearly a quarter of the population of the UK as a whole.

(Yeah... the government's working so hard to avoid a nationwide lockdown that the entire nation may well end up in 'local' lockdown.)

Friday Fics Fix - Fluffy Legends

 

"Huh, who would have guessed a warlock of your measure could be swayed by snacks? And here I thought my charms were your only weakness,” she said.

Who wants some fluff?

I think we could all do with fluff. Especially when it's superhero fluff!

Nerd Church - On LGBTQ+ Own Voices

 

If you follow me on Twitter, you might've seen my thread about the current discussions surrounding #OwnVoices LGBTQ+ content.

If you haven't seen my thread, and/or don't understand a word I just said, then don't worry - I'm about to break it down for you, and also expand - because I'm just that nice to you.

Friday Fics Fix - Tony And Bucky In A Horror Trope? Why Not, I Guess!

 

'“Oh, my God,” Tony hisses. “Aren’t you like the greatest assassin the world’s ever seen? Why are you struggling so much with a stupid knot?”'

I actually have no idea WTF I just read - but I kind of love it.

That's one the fab-est things about fanfiction, dearest nerdlets, it's so very, very, random. 

And it can surprise you. Even when you've read what has to amount to thousands of fics.

Comics Wrap-Up - I Sell The Fact That I Can't Be Bought

It's Thursday - which means it's time for some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Entirely unintentionally, everything I have for you this week is either Batman or Batwoman related.

It's all also in the 'Other Stuff' category - Loki moves in mysterious ways, dearest nerdlets!

Nerd Church - I'm Not (Totally) Lovin' It: Why I'm Not Entirely Happy (Meal) That They're Ditching The Plastic Toys

 



Recently, I saw that McDonalds are gonna stop supplying hard plastic toys in their kids' meals in the UK and Ireland.

This was due to a petition from two smol eco-warriors, who were annoyed at the lack of recyclable-ness. 

And good on them. We all need to be working on cutting down on the amount of plastic we use.

But when I heard the news, I wasn't entirely happy. 

Of course, I was happy that there'd be less plastic thrown away and ending up in landfill or the water system!

...But I still had some reservations.

Because I knew how much it would hurt a lot of kids whose families are on low incomes.
