FATHER: A girl’s first love and a boy’s first hero!, by Madhuri Palaji
My father used to be very strict. He talks less, smiles rarely, loves unconditionally and forgives thoroughly. I’m fortunate to have a father like him. He is my role model, my hero. I felt fathers were kind of underrated until recently. The Father’s Day helped, I guess. Still most of the kids don’t talk to […]
Passing The Torch, by Megan O’Russell
I grew up at the most amazing time. I know a lot of people would argue that the late 80’s/early 90’s were not a mecca for anything except poor fashion choices, but here are the perks that come with being an ’85 kid. The Little Mermaid was the Disney movie all my friends knew and […]
Seven Weird Romantic Relationships From TV and Books, by Oviya Raj
Shiver – Grace and Sam Shiver is pretty famous and has fans all over the world. I too fell for the hype and picked up the book. As the plot begins, we understand that Grace is in love with a wolf, yellow-eyed wolf – not the pet kind of love, but the romantic type of […]
Loving Mothers in Fiction, by Dani Eide
Mothers have been on my mind this month… it didn’t start with Mother’s day though. As a book blogger I participate in a popular meme where predetermined prompts gather the thoughts of the (mainly YA genre) book community every week. This month we were asked what we wanted to see more of in the books […]
The Humanity (and Inhumanity) of Laughter, by Benjamin Sperduto
There’s a memorable passage in Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land in which the main character “discovers” that humans don’t laugh at things because they’re funny, but rather because they’re tragic. Every incident of humor he describes occurs at someone’s expense, a recognition of physical or emotional suffering. We laugh, he says, at the […]
Villians We Secretly Want to Be, by Megan O’Russell
Have you ever wanted to be just a little bit evil? I don’t mean like robbing a store or something real world bad, but fantastically evil. I have henchman evil. Maybe it’s just my dramatic side, but there are a few evil folks I would shank a flying monkey to spend a day in their […]
SEVEN TYPES OF VILLAINS, by
I was quite excited to see the blog theme for this week, as I dedicated several weeks just to looking at villains a few years ago on my blog. Over that week, I discussed several types of villains and some of the best representatives from each category. But I don’t have space for several posts […]
Watch Dogs 2 – Movie Hacking, by Jason Purdy
A sort of review and a look at video game hacking and the issue of narrative dissonance.
What My OTPs Taught Me To Look For In Relationships, by Astrid Kaniele
As any self respecting fan girl would, I have multiple OTPs (or One True Parings). I see it as ‘an OTP per show/book/film/etc’ rather than a hard and fast rule that only one coupling can be the ultimate romance. Regardless of the amount of OTPs I’ve collected through the seasons and trilogies, there’s some things […]
My Top Ten OTPs, by Lauren
So, with February come Valentine’s Day and although I am not the biggest fan of this day, it does make me think about my OTPs. I have come up with a top 10 and trust me this was not easy to compile as I have so many OTPs. I have picked ships from TV, movies […]
