Hi, what are you looking for?

Meet the Fandomentals

One does not simply write ~thematically satisfying~ eighth grade book reports.

Once upon a time, there was a group of friends who loved ASOIAF. Then Game of Thrones happened. We started writing, picked up some fellow fandomentals from across all spectrums of fanthings, and never looked back. 

Please wait while salt is gathered...

Angela is a full-time fantasy nerd. She is either reading a novel or talking about one. Or is watching Lord of the Rings for the hundredth time. Character archetypes and cultural context always fascinate her.

Writer

Alejandra is a Mexican screenwriter who spends too much time thinking about television.

Writer

Barbara is a religious studies grad student who uses fandom to avoid working on her thesis.

Writer

Caroline is a lawyer by day, geeky media fan and critic by night, afternoon, and lunch hour. Caroline enjoys long walks on quiet beaches so she can mentally over-analyze fictional characters and settings, and candlelit dinners that don’t cause a glare on her TV screen.

Writer

David is a dental hygienist by day, gamer by night. He enjoys making character sheets when bored, and re-reading the same book for the twentieth time.

Writer

Born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago. Trying to prove to a nation you can do more with literature than teach when everyone thinks if you have a literature degree you’re going to teach. Likes to pretend she doesn’t have social anxiety by hiding behind books and her laptop.

Writer

Taylor is a writer who will always jump at the chance to blur genres. So obviously she can’t pick just one to fangirl over. Though if she had to choose, she would narrow it down to science fiction and fantasy. Currently, she is most interested in women-centric stories and the depiction of trauma in media. She is also an aspiring YA novelist and aspiring Taylor Swift scholar.

Writer

Gay, she/her. An unabashed Disney fangirl, who may or may not have an excessive love of shipping, comics, and RPGs. She’s not saying. And anything you’ve heard about attempts to start a cult centered around Sofia Boutella is…probably true.
