Friday Fics Fix - Something Followed



'He can feel something else coming through, something uninvited.'

I love horror.

...You may or may not have noticed.

Generally speaking, the less-realistic and more fake-looking the horror is, the more I'm freaked out.

There are some notable exceptions (Pet Sematary *shudders*) but overall, the more realistic and convincing the horror is, the more I'm like: meh, it's a ghost.

Comics Wrap-Up - You Know I Like It Loud







It's Thursday, it's comics time! 

This week it's all 'Other Stuff' - so, as we all know, it's Loki's fault!

Month in Review(s) - July 2019



July was too goddamned hot.


July - Gorffenaf title graphic with really big sun at the bottom and puffy clouds and stuff


I'm not built for anything past 23C, and it hit, like 31C.

I know to some of you who live in hotter places than the UK, that's nothing but... it's really not nothing to us!

I'm not a nice person when I'm hot - I'm grumpy af and just want to make the world suffer.

Also, I live in Wales. Summer is traditionally one big rain shower - WTAF with this heat?!

Friday Fics Fix - Twists and Turns






'Trying to talk to Five is like talking to a brick wall that thinks it’s smarter than you and disappears as soon as it gets bored, which is quickly.'

(I will never tire of this show.)

Comics Wrap-Up - God is a Woman







Comics Wrap-Up title image with manga-style woman handing her living-shadow a flower



Once a year, there is the event of all comics-y-ness - San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

Unfortunately, most of us can't sell our souls to get to SDCC...

...but fortunately, the trailers the big companies release there trickle out over the next couple of weeks, and the big announcements are pretty much immediate!

Comics Wrap-Up - You're the Perfect Distraction





comics wrap-up title image with manga-style woman handing her living-shadow a flower


You know what Thursday means? Superhero-y comics-y goodness! Woo!

Everything this week falls into the 'Other Stuff' category - which, as always, is Loki's fault.

Gif. Loki: You had one job


It's also kind of superhero-adjacent, because that's just the way the cards fall sometimes *shrugs*

Month in Review(s) - June 2019





June kind of flew by!

Partly because I was super-busy! Which is also why I (once again) posted less here than I wanted to.

I did manage to post a review though! Woo! I can still call myself a book blog! (Lol.) 😅

Friday Fics Fix - Murder House Party!



“You guys seem really chill about all this,” observed Ben. “By this point most people are running around screaming.”

“Occupational hazard,” said Klaus.

“I’ve lost a lot of blood,” said Diego. “I’m just accepting everything at face value right now.”

If there's one thing that Netflix has got me obsessed with as much as Umbrella Academy, it's American Horror Story.

Nerd Church - 5 Super-Dads (And 5 Who Aren't So Super)



(This post may have some mild spoilers for various superhero-y dealies.)


Let's have some fun this Father's Day, shall we?



Title image: 5 Super Dads (And 5 Who Aren't So Super)



Superhero media is a hazardous place to be a father...

...Either you or your kid keeps getting kidnapped and you have to save each other...

...someone changes the timeline and suddenly you've accidentally poofed your child out of existence...

...your kids get ret-conned for film license purposes so that they're no longer your kids...

...they turn out to be super-villains even though you thought they were dead...

It ain't easy!
