So this blog has gotten a lot broader than where it began. While its still a place where I promote and advertise my fic, its also a place where I fangirl over various awesome WOC- they are mostly black women-, and talk about things that are important to me and other WOC.

Though the tv show Merlin may have disappointed me Queen Guinevere and the actress that played her, Angel Coulby, was awesome to the end and I think both the actress and the character deserve a blog that continues to acknowledge their existence. So this blog will maintain Queen Guinevere's colors and image because she was awesome.

There are some other shows and characters that I fangirl over here. Sleepy Hollow and the fabulous Abbie Mills, her sassy friend and partner Ichabod Crane and the enigmatic Jenny Mills. There is also Scandal and the powerhouse fixer and anti-hero Olivia Pope. And finally the absolutely brilliant Joan Watson. Other awesome WOC appearing here are Martha Jones and Lt. Nyota Uhura.

Tina Turner and Beyoncé 

sometimes it has to be the combination of our parent’s lessons, expectations, and our own experiences until we truly learn these things. when was a child I was uncomfortable when my mother made me “say it loud,I’m black and I’m proud.” it took experience to help me learn that and internalize it.

Sleepy Hollow 2.04 | Abbie & Crane


For Alexis Templeton and Brittany Ferrell of Ferguson, Missouri, Michael Brown’s death meant putting school on hold and devoting themselves to organizing against police brutality and fighting for racial justice. For Oct.13’s day of civil disobedience, they took their message to the Frontenac Mall, an upscale shopping complex in suburban St. Louis. As a series of protest events unfolded across the city on Monday, a Missouri grand jury is weighing evidence against Officer Darren Wilson to determine whether he should stand trial over the August shooting death of unarmed 18 year-old Michael Brown.
