Month in Review(s) - May 2019


May was another month of ups-and-downs.



Such is life - we just keep moving after all!



Things are starting to kind of improve depression-wise, if you squint and turn your head a bit, so... that's good!

Nerd Church - The World's Exhausting Expectations of Women



Who the hell is it that's making 'the Social norms' anyway?

Cos I think we all need to have a few words with them.

I mean, the amount of stuff we're expected to be and not be doesn't make any goddamn sense. The 'shoulds' and 'shouldn'ts' are ridiculous.

(In a broad sense, I mean - I'm sure there's stuff you actually should do, like eat and sleep and go to the loo, and stuff you shouldn't like arson, theft, murder, voting for Donald Trump, etc.

There's exceptions to most generalisations.)



Women, for example, get a raw effing deal.

Just looking at ads and articles aimed at women can sometimes be goddamned exhausting!

Friday Fics Fix - Dream Girl, Outta This World



'Which reminded her, Kara and Alex were still there, and they were both trying very hard to pretend they weren’t watching the way that Nia was very clearly staring at Brainy.'

I love the Supergirl TV series.

I also absolutely adore the Supergirl characters, Brainy and Nia Nal.

And I ship the thing, SO HARD. Lol.

(Fangirling notes: I ship the thing = I support this romantic and/or sexual relationship)

Comics Wrap-Up - Stars Are On The Ground

If all goes as planned, then by the time you're reading this, I'll actually have watched Avengers: Endgame! Woo!

...That's if things go as planned though. Said plans have already fallen through a bunch of times, so honestly, anything could happen.

My town has no cinema, so even though it's not that far away to the nearest one, these things do have to have just a dash of thought put into them!


BUT regardless of whether I've seen Endgame or not, I have a bunch of superhero-y stuff for you today! Yay! 😊

Nerd Church - Game of Thrones: No-One's Very Happy, Which Means It's A Good Compromise



This post has Game of Thrones **spoilers** EVERY GOD-DAMN-WHERE! Ok? Ok.

It's best to get the spoiler warnings outta the way. 😉

Also, y'know this is Game of Thrones, so general WARNING for potentially distressing content.

Friday Fics Fix - In 2009, There Was a Girl Named Jennifer Check



'Because there is blood. And there is black stuff all over the floor.

And Jennifer is eyeing her like a dog does a bone, paws twitching and lips being licked.'

A decade ago, there was a film about two high school girls. And one of them ate boys.

And because it was unapologetically about Queer girls (this film is so Gay,) and because it was at least ten years ahead of its time, it was hated by critics and went unnoticed by the public for too long.

I've seen reviewers (mainly dudes, might I add,) talk sh** about it recently, of course, but the fact remains: this film is a f**king Queer Classic!
