Feature a Fantasy Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 21)

It's a lot easier to choose a fantasy character that I like than to choose a sci-fi character of whom I'm fond. I think I'll keep it chill today with my selection, which may have been predictable but is no less worthy of feature. Sebastian (Black Butler) is a fantastic fantasy character. He's temptation personified, … Continue reading Feature a Fantasy Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 21)

Feature a Sci-fi Character You Like (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 20)

I … Continue reading Feat. a Character with the Best Quotes (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 12)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

I've written an expose on the relationship between Victor and Yuri in the past*, but I'll reiterate that this show moved me because of its ambiguity. Yuri's passion for the ice as a manifestation of his love for Victor doesn't … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)

Enter... Eren Jaeger, who taught me about the nature of humanity.   He taught me that perseverance, determination, nerve, and grit mean just as much as inborn ability. He taught me that even the best of us fail under pressure. He taught me that it is possible to loose yourself in the heat of the moment … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)
