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.

Though I will say, personally, I don’t mind people asking me horrifically intrusive and detailed questions about my sex life and relationships. The only stuff I won’t answer there are any points that one of my partners has asked me to keep quiet about.
