Words are Wind: A Depressing Update for “The Winds of Winter” by George R. R. Martin

It has been two years since I wrote about The Winds of Winter and its slow progression towards release. I heard some time ago that 2020 was a productive year for Martin, inspiring words considering how long this novel has been in the works. The last installment, A Dance with Dragons, was published in 2011… Continue reading Words are Wind: A Depressing Update for “The Winds of Winter” by George R. R. Martin

What the Backlash of “Twilight” Taught Me

The Twilight series is something I have been wanting to talk about for some time now, but lacked the courage to do so. It is potentially one of the most openly hated books to come out of the 21st century (a position only recently overtaken by 50 Shades of Grey) and is still mocked to… Continue reading What the Backlash of “Twilight” Taught Me

Unpopular Opinion: Why Zuko and Mai Don’t Work As a Couple

I would be lying if I said I didn't see some logic behind pushing these two characters together. From my own experience, people have the proclivity to seek out romantic partners who make up for what they lack either intentionally or otherwise. That being said, I've learned there is a limit to how "opposite" you… Continue reading Unpopular Opinion: Why Zuko and Mai Don’t Work As a Couple

Unpopular Opinion: Why Katara and Aang Don’t Work As a Couple

When Netflix announced they would be adding Avatar: The Last Airbender to their streaming platform, I literally squealed. Avatar is not only one of the best cartoon shows ever to air, but one of the best shows in existence period. The way it is able to tell stories with such mature themes like war, death,… Continue reading Unpopular Opinion: Why Katara and Aang Don’t Work As a Couple

Opinion: Thoughts on “Destiny” in Fiction

In preparation for my own novel, I've been reading quite a lot of fantasy novels to get me in the right headspace. As such, I've been exposed to the normal trappings of fantasy lit i.e, magical creatures as racial allegories, repurposing of traditional folk-lore stories and, of course, the concept of "destiny." Destiny gets a… Continue reading Opinion: Thoughts on “Destiny” in Fiction

Thoughts on “The Last Wish” by Andrzej Sapkowski (Spoiler-Free)

I, like most burned Game of Thrones fans, was thrilled when Netflix announced they would be releasing a new High Fantasy show The Witcher. I didn't play the video games, nor had I read the books at that time, so I had no idea what to expect. Nevertheless, I was encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive… Continue reading Thoughts on “The Last Wish” by Andrzej Sapkowski (Spoiler-Free)
