Shadowhunters: The TV show that will take over your life

yes okay but malec

Hello, fellow fangirls of the internet!

So, if you follow me on Twitter (#self-promo) then you’ll know that I’ve sunk into the dark hole that is the fandom of Shadowhunters. And I’m about to drag you down with me. (Hopefully; it’s kind of lonely here and I need some friends.)

First off: what is this show and why should you care? Well, it’s a TV adaptation of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (one of my favourite book series), and you should care because it’s actually really good and not a disgrace to the books (like the *cough* movies *cough*).

Also the ships are to die for.

Hello, fellow fangirls of the internet!

Autumn is here: and you know what that means? Conventions. There are loads of Comic Cons happening right around this time, and fangirls all throughout the world are excited. Comic Con is great!

The Dark Artifices: Lord of Shadows review // intense fangirling

i’m an emotional wreck dear lord somebody help me.

Hello, people of the internet!

So, I mentioned in my monthly wrap-up that I bought Lord of Shadows  and was really excited to read it: well, I finally did. And it was just so good! It made me cry (a lot), made me laugh (not as much as crying, but still a lot), and it made me squeal (like, for almost every page).

I did not expect this from the book. Not that it’s a bad thing! It was great. I loved it. (Except the ending because oh my gods my heart is still damaged???) But there’s so much to talk about – I have a bunch of predictions and theories I’ll be sharing below, after my review. (Oh yeah, spoiler alert.)

Fierce Fangirl Friday: MUSICALS!

Hello, fellow fangirls (or boys) of the internet!

Fierce Fangirl Fridays are put on by the wonderful and lovely Jackie @ Too Much of a Booknerd. If you’re not following her already, seriously, go do it, because she’s amazing. Now, what is Fierce Fangirl Fridays? Basically, it’s where you fangirl/boy over anything – that’s right, each week you pick a different thing you’re fangirling about the moment and JUST RUN FREE WITH THE FEELS. Only rule? Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. 😄

It’s probably no surprise for you guys to find out that I love musicals (after all, I have a whole post fangirling about Hamilton), but I never really cared much for musicals before?? And now that I’ve sunk into that hole discovered them, I can’t STOP LISTENING TO THEM.

Musicals are great because they tell stories through songs. Which is an awesome change from all the trashy pop music going around! (Noah Fence to anyone.) And the story lines are usually awesome: take Heathers. It starts off as your everyday high school drama, but ends up into a murder mystery/kill everyone sort of thing. It also deals with lots of problems, like suicide, psychopathy, and depression, along with general murderous tendencies and what to do if you have them. 🙂

So, for this post, I planned on listing some of my favourite musicals and FANGIRLING ALL OVER THEM BECAUSE NONE OF MY FRIENDS LISTEN TO THEM AND I AM IN SEVERE NEED OF A FELLOW FANGIRL.

Why fanfiction is great

no, fanfiction is not just 11-year-olds writing bad smut

Hello, people of the internet!

If you’re a millennial, and part of a fandom, you’ve probably read – or at least glanced at – some fanfiction. But lots of people dismiss it as plagiarism and meaningless, explicit, smut. While there might be some sexual content in a few fanfictions, that is not the only thing there is and the whole community shouldn’t be judged based on them. There are so many beautifully written fanfictions that are about the feelings, the psychological profiles, and chaste relationships of characters. I’ve come up with a list of reasons why fanfiction is not a joke, but a revolution.

Review – Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir

okay i know this post is late but it was my grandma’s funeral so

Hi internet people!

Another reason I didn’t post was because I was too busy binge-watching TV shows. One TV show in particular. Maybe you’ve heard of it; it was Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir.

(epic name, no?)

So here’s an unbiased and completely honest (I’m not being sarcastic) review of the show.

Riverdale: Review

hands up if you love cole sprouse

Hello, people of the internet!

Image result for riverdale

So, Riverdale. CW has outdone itself yet again, with this amazing mystery/romance TV show, based on the ever-popular Archie’s comics.

Though the show itself has no relation to Archie’s, it has the same characters and setting. It follows Archie Andrews, an average teenage boy going to Riverdale High. He loves music, and is pretty awesome at guitar – and singing.

His best friend, Jughead Jones (played by COLE SPROUSE OH MY LORD), isn’t short of his own problems, either. I can’t really say much without giving stuff away – let’s just say that he has family issues.

His other best friend, Betty Cooper, starts off by having a hopeless crush on Archie. But she’s also an amazing journalist, and works hard to make the school newspaper – the Blue and Gold – a success.

And then Veronica Lodge, the daughter of the convict Hiram Lodge, moves into town. Being used to lavish mansions and luxuries, she takes some time settling in.

The show opens to the summer after the death of Jason Blossom, the son and heir of one of the most influential families in Riverdale. On the morning of the Fourth of July, Jason went for a boat ride with his sister Cheryl. Later on in the day, Dilton Doiley’s boy scouts found Cheryl sitting all by herself on a rock, by the river’s edge. The boat, and Jason Blossom, were nowhere to be seen.

It’s a highly mysterious show, with dark themes of violence, murder, and romance. I would recommend it to 14+ people, but then again, it depends on the person. I loved the show, even though it has zero relation to Archie’s comics.

If you watch it, comment below with what you think the next episode will show. If you want to start watching it, comment below with your first reaction of the show. I wanna hear what you guys think!

The Phandom

pretty sure all my irl friends just groaned when they saw the title

Hello, people of the internet!

Since it’s my job to educate the lesser population of the internet about things they probably don’t know about, I will tell you about one of my biggest fandoms: the Phandom.

Some of you might be familiar with this term – the combined fan base of the YouTubers danisnotonfire (Dan Howell) and AmazingPhil (Phil Lester). IRL, the Phandom is pretty small, but we practically dominate the internet. You can’t go onto tumblr without at least one phan blog appearing on your dash. So what makes us phans such a tightly knit community, and why do we love Dan and Phil so much? These are the very questions about to be answered in this post. (wow such dramatic) Continue reading “The Phandom”

If you don’t know what fandoms are, then RUN. Run, run, run, and never get involved in this life.

Hello, people of the internet!

Today, I am going to talk about something personal to me. Fandoms.

“Fandoms” are defined by the internet as the fans of a particular person, team, fictional series, etc. regarded collectively as a community or subculture. (Yes, that was from Wikipedia.) I am part of exactly 67 fandoms. So, I think I can safely guide you on them. Continue reading “Fandoms”
