I am the (not entirely proud) owner of Independence Day AND Independence Day 2: Resurgence. (Yes, I did have to google what the subtitle was.) And since it’s approximately a billion degrees outside, […]

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Because it’s either fic recs or my TED talk on why workplaces should stop trying to corporatize fun, and last night I realized that two of my favorite James Bond fics were written by the same person, which led me to a third that I’ve probably read before but had forgotten, and that was pretty […]
