Rating: PG for language.

Warnings: Total, complete and utter crack with a generous side order of mockage.

Disclaimer: Not mine. Just borrowing for a bit of shameless mocking. No infringement intended.

Author’s Notes: A while back, this flow chart made the rounds on the internet. Needless to say, I was not very impressed with what the chart had to say. Turns out, a whole bunch of other people I know weren’t all that happy with it, either. *g*

( "So we’re in agreement; this thing is absolute dren. The question is: what are we going to do about it?" )

Princess Tutu Meta

Around middle of last year, I wrote about characters I loved for a meme. And the first one I did was a rather long meta about one of my favourite fictional ladies, Rue from Princess Tutu, a character I feel is often underappreciated in fandom. I talk about how unique and beautiful her character arc was to me and I thought I would share it here.

Cut for length and major spoilers!

Picspam: Vampire Warriors

Reeling from the disappointment of the lesbian Rambo movie, I went out in search of campy good fun with women kicking ass. With Vampire Warriors, I knew I'd found exactly what I'd been hoping for.

With that title, I hope you have some idea of what you're in for beneath the cut. There may be a few spoilers if, you know, you care about being spoiled for Vampire Warriors.
