"If you can't handle me at my fangirl, then you don't deserve my feminist scholar!"

I really like shipping, literally in both senses of the term. People in love is awesome and I also research the Early Modern Indian Ocean shipping network on the side :)

BEWARE: This is a multi-fandom blog!

ALSO BEWARE: I don't tolerate ship wars. People should love who they want to love, so if you think sending hate to someone for their ship (or sexuality for that matter) is warranted, then you shall find no safe harbor here no matter your ship!


OTP: Destiel, The Profound Bond, The Hunter and His Angel

Other Ships I'm still pretty damn passionate about: Johnlock, Cecilos, The Doctor x Rose, The Doctor x River Song (yes, that's right, both of them!), Sam x Jess, Ichabod x donut holes, 00Q, Book!Ginny x Book!Harry, Romione (sorry Rowling, I don't believe you), Bubbline, Jaime x Brienne, Chuck x Sarah, FitzSimmons

Ships I'm also down with: Clara x Danny, Captain Jack Harkness x everyone, AU!Sam x AU!Jo, Sam x Jody Mills, Arya x Daeneyrs, Spirk, Merthur, Sterek, Rizzles, Ellen x Bobby

Fandoms (if you can't tell already): Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Sleepy Hollow, Welcome to Night vale, Avengers and Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., Game of Thrones, Monarch of the Glen, Chuck, Hunger Games, Downton Abbey, Firefly, Stargate SG-1, Torchwood, LOTR, Star Trek, James Bond (I was always a Bond girl since I was like 7)

Everything else you'll pick up if you follow me! ... oh, and cats
Who I Follow




I really want a science fiction story where aliens come to invade earth and effortlessly wipe out humanity, only to be fought off by the wildlife.

They were expecting military resistance. They weren’t counting on bears.

Hermione’s last minute study crunch before exams!

okay I’m gonna reblog this again because last time I didn’t say what I thought about this picture

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. This makes the universe of Harry Potter so much more magical than I ever dreamed it to be. In the movies and books it’s like an average library with magic books, but this picture shows a Hogwarts alive and brimming with magic. The shelves are impossibly tall because you can enchant stuff to help you reach, so why SHOULDN’T the shelves be huge? I love the girls walking on books like stairs, the cat who got caught on a flying book, Hermione sitting on a book like a chair, everyone’s casual confidence in their unbelievable magic because it’s natural to them. It’s part of their everyday lives. I love the Harry Potter world so much that it hurts, and this picture is gorgeous and makes me relive the magic I have loved since I was little.

As you may have heard, John Grisham gave an interview with The Telegraph in which he lambasted the US judicial system for excessive incarceration—including that of “Sixty-year-old white men in prison” whose only crimes were consuming child pornography.

“…But they got online…



Hi, I have a cell phone account with you guys, and I lost my phone. I was wondering if you could turn the GPS on for me. Name’s Wedge Antilles, social is 2474. Thank you.

The name Sam used, Wedge Antilles, is from Star Wars

Wedge was pressured to join the Rebel Alliance (good guys) but kept saying no because he didn’t want to be a soldier. He left home on a job and came back to find his girlfriend had been killed by the Imperials (dark side). He quickly joined the Rebel Alliance because he wanted to get revenge for the loss of the woman he loved (x)

Dean knew that Sam would identify with Wedge because they share a tragic story

The above document was sent to me by a male reader of my site who’s quite stunned by what he read. I’m not.

They’re fairly organized and are actively calling for articles and research to highlight just how oppressed they are:

"Cite sources that show Leigh Alexander’s EXTREME racism, misandry, and bias towards Intel’s largest consumer-level base (Gamers)… If you have an academic position, tenure, are part of a research group AND have an interest in contributing NEW PAPERS that go against the current Feminist Inquisition…"

Leigh Alexander wrote about the lack of diversity and the decline in gaming culture.

DiGRA = Digital Games Research Association.

We all know what consumer base they’re about as well.

But it’s all about ethics in journalism and research, right?
