‘The Hunger Games’: Today Is A Weird Day

Today is a weird day. It's not a bad day, it's a weird day. I'm not sure how to explain it, because I am fully aware that it is first world issues and not a problem at all.  Because I am looking at today, and I feel a little tinge of sadness. But I digress. Today is a weird day. I have said goodbye to franchises before. Saying goodbye to Twilight was one of the most difficult things I have had to do in my blogging career. But it is because of that I am standing here - well sitting ...

Fangirlish’s “Why We’re Thankful for Fandom” #Giveaway

For many of you, fandom hopping and friending is a rite of passage. An expectation even! You grew up on Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and Unfortunate Events and DeathNote, Bleach, and Fruits Basket; and you wrote fanfiction before you could properly form a sentence. You've been groomed for fandom.

Letters from Fangirlish: We Need More Lyla Michaels in ‘Arrow’ Season 4

My Dearest Arrow Producers, As season four gets closer to reality with each passing day, so does my excitement for the plethora of storylines that we’ve been promised, from Oliver and Felicity working together as a couple to Diggle’s personal involvement with H.I.V.E. to the big bad Damien Darhk who already has us chilled to the bone (and all we’ve seen is a couple photos of him on set). I’ve made it no secret to hide my annoyance about a couple of things from last season, ...

Why Zac Brewer Has and Always Will Be My Hero

"Own your weird." That's such a hard concept nowadays because there's a lot of weird out there and now it's not so weird to be weird. In fact, a lot of weird has been claimed by the typical. Freaks and geeks and nerds are all lovable -- always have always been -- but not until recently have they been embraced by society as a whole. As a voice that should be listened to, should be recognized for their strange perspective, oddities and quirks. They make the world just as special as everyone ...

Letters From Fangirlish: Stop Trying to Create Another Felicity Smoak (Because You Can’t)

Dear The Flash Producers/Writers, There is no show I love more than The Flash, well except Arrow, and I am literally bound to the show and will bend to your will during the season, and quite frankly hiatus, as well. I’ve written more editorials than I thought humanly possible about Harrison Wells as every week I tried to crack the mystery. I theorize, obsess and cry over The Flash in all of the best and worst ways possible. The Flash was easily the best DC Comics television show last ...
