About

Hey there!

I’m Alex, a research student and feature writer who spends her time thinking long and hard about fiction. I’m particularly fascinated by reoccurring tropes and archetypes, whether in modern genres or mythology from millennia ago… or, even better, how one has evolved to influence the other. I’m currently working on a thesis about mythic archetypes and gender, subject matter that leaks over into blogging in this tag.

You can find me writing feature articles on Anime Feminist and Lady Geek Girl and Friends, and micro-posting and attempting to be witty on Twitter.

  3. Hello! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog, so I’m also nominating you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. Yay, you have two nominations! No one said I couldn’t nominate someone who has already been nominated, so I’m doing it! Here’s the link to my post: http://tiffanymetzger.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/im-inspirational-who-knew/

    I like most of the same things you do – reading, collecting books, observing, telling stories, tea, watching too much TV and procrastinating. Oh yes, definitely procrastinating. Best wishes to you and your blog!

  4. Hi! I really enjoyed the post you wrote in defence of the character that serves as the main scapegoat either in tv or book series.

  5. Somebody else who likes TV Tropes! Yay! That thing is like a black hole of internet procrastination, as awesome as it is. I love your blog, and I laughed out loud at the fourth, zombie apocalypse bullet

  6. Just letting you know that I’ve nominated you for the ABC Award. 🙂 http://t.co/GwSDKBdqPr

  7. Hey there! Obviously there’s no obligation to take part if you don’t want, but I just nominated you for the Creative Blogger Award over here: https://otakulounge.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/creative-blogger-award/. Sorry, I would have tagged you on Twitter instead but I’m not sure I know your username, assuming you have an account there.
