  • Yaoi Recommendations (Part 2) – More Non-explicit Series

    I’m going to be posting recommendations in groups of three in clusters that share similar themes or ratings. This second group is all non-explicit series, which can be categorized as “boys love” (BL) or shonen-ai as opposed to explicit yaoi with mature content.  These particular selections are also grouped together because they all involve magical […]




  • Yaoi Recommendations (Part 1) – Non-explicit Series

    Welcome to our new Yaoi Recommendations series.  After having been absent from the anime and manga fandom for the better part of a decade, my desire for canon queer characters led me back to yaoi/shonen-ai and, to a lesser extent, yuri/shoujo-ai.  My current media just wasn’t cutting it so I dove back into the fandom […]

And to each generation was born a creature of light and a creature of darkness. And great armies clashed by night in the ancient war between good and […]


  • Orphan Black 2×08 Review: Variable and Full of Perturbation

    This episode was my absolute favorite episode of the season for one reason: Tony.   This show is unique in many ways.  It has a predominately female cast and several queer characters as part of the primary ensemble.  Orphan Black keeps pushing further in the realm of representation and has now introduced a transgender clone. There’s […]


  • Game of Thrones 4×09 Review: The Watchers on the Wall

    Unlike the majority of Game of Thrones episodes, which usually bounce back and forth between many characters, settings, and plot lines, The Watchers on the Wall focused on one single event. After three seasons we’ve picked up the pattern that the 9th episode of each season has a huge impact on the narrative, and considering […]
