Why @HeatherBrewer 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 ...
We Sent One Of Our Writers to the #Insurgent Red Carpet – Here’s Her First Red Carpet Experience
I was given the opportunity to work in the press pen at the world premiere of Insurgent in London on March 11th.

Reform Should Come With Kindness, #AndrewSmith Deserved Better
I am going to try and keep my bias from showing in that I hope to show both sides of this story. However that said, my spirit was wounded when Andrew Smith was handed off to the masses without so much a care or kind word from his critics. Which is why my rant might be a little tilted in his favor.
Unlike many of Andrew's critics and then the raging mass of social reformers who had the audacity to attack him personally, to attack his wife and daughter personally based upon supposed words ...
Letters From Fangirlish: 2015, The Year of the Fangirl Conversation
Dear Fangirls of the World,
So 2014 is coming to an end. You know that you're excited and at the same point - somewhat petrified. Because how do you move forward when you aren't ready to say goodbye to the past? I am pretty unsure of that myself.
2014 has been a good year for us. We've traveled, been to some amazing concerts and award shows, hung with celebrities that we never thought we would, laughed at things that we never thought we would laugh at.
Life has been kind of weird that ...
