  • Supernatural: Resolution or Idealization of Winchester Codependency

    Trigger Warning: The following article contains discussion of harmful psychological conditions, and includes a brief reference to eating disorders.

  • Stiles, Kira, & Gendered Possessions in Teen Wolf

    An evil or possessed Stiles has long been a favorite topic of speculation in the Teen Wolf fandom. It has been explored in countless works of fan art and fan fiction, along with cleverly edited .gif sets.

  • Reign, Season 1: What I’ve Seen and What I’d Like to See Next

    Reign is my ultimate guilty pleasure show, where pagans in the woods, a mysterious girl wandering secret passages, and a love triangle, all complete with a modern soundtrack, are found in lieu of being more historically grounded.  And with the shocking ending to the midseason finale “Fated”, we Royals are left behind to find out […]

Despite the overwhelmingly positive response to his involvement in fandom many critics […]


  • Baiting the Fandom That Feeds You

    With fandom’s migration online and the rise of Social Media, any hope of hiding fan practices has basically disintegrated. Creators (including performers, writers, directors and producers) are actively encouraged to interact with fans via platforms like Twitter, Facebook and even Tumblr. So while some fans desperately attempt to maintain the illusion of the Fourth Wall […]


  • Veronica Mars Featurette: Ships Ahoy!

      We finally got another look at the much anticipated – and famously fan-funded – Veronica Mars Movie and this time it’s got a bit of a controversial twist. Well I guess it’s not all that controversial unless you’re a fan, but pushing a love triangle is always a risky move where fandom is concerned. […]
