Nerd Church - Simply the Best? It's More Complicated Than That


Simply the Best? It's More Complicated Than That



One of the many things that makes me tired in this beautiful trash-fire of a world is that some people think that everything - everything - has to be a superlative.

What's a superlative? Well there's a couple of meanings to the word, but I'm talking about this one:


'In grammar, the superlative form of an adjective or adverb is the form that indicates that something has more of a quality than anything else in a group. For example, ' biggest' is the superlative form of 'big'.'

- COBUILD Collins English Dictionary Online 


And the world? The world isn't actually comprised solely of superlatives and extremes.



Good Lord, she's gonna talk about nuance on the Internet! Someone stop her!

(Note: don't stop me. 😜😎)

Friday Fics Fix - Night Magic

 

'The night wore on, and Merlin still hadn't found anything. The words were beginning to blur together on the page no matter how much he tried to clear his vision, so he finally gave in and went over to wake Lancelot.'

I love the BBC TV show Merlin - and even years after it ended, it has a thriving fandom online.

...which, lucky for us, means that there are fic writers busily scribbling away to this day.

Friday Fics Fix - Bucky Angst (I Regret Nothing)

 

'Sam’s hand hovers near his arm again, just in the corner of his eye. Just in case he collapses without warning or something. Bucky hates that he has to bite his tongue and accept that as a legitimate probability'

This week's fic appealed to my emo goblin spaghetti-brain. 

I regret nothing.

Comics Wrap-Up - Keep Making Trouble 'Til You Find What You Love

 

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, I'm still writing 2021 instead of 2022 on a regular basis, this is Dora Reads, so let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Everything I have you this week comes under the 'Other Stuff' category. Again. #BlameLoki

Month In Review(s) - December 2021

 

December had Christmas - and therefore was de facto awesome.

I don't make the rules (well, not all of them.)

(I love Christmas. So. Much.)

As I usually do in December, I scaled back on blogging a bit

 - although I decided to keep going with my Comics Wrap-Up posts this year so that I could ramble on about Hawkeye, because I am Marvel trash.

So that's the reason there's so few posts this month.

I usually try to use the time when I'm posting less to schedule and organise and all that jazz. Key word is 'try' - but there's points for trying, right? 😉
