Urban Dictionary

This is a blog devoted to fangirly musings. Though we mostly post about games and books, we’re interested in a lot of things, so our topics tend to meander all over the place. We aren’t fangirls in the derogatory sense (“a female fan, obsessed with something (or someone) to a frightening or sickening degree. Often considered ditzy, annoying and shallow.” – Urban Dictionary); we believe that this other definition that Urban Dictionary provides is more suitable: “less extreme, a female fan who can laugh at their own passion for their particular interest (or even obsession).” Yes, we know that getting too obsessive about any fandom is dangerous. And yes, we’re aware that a lot of the guys we find to be attractive are fictional. It’s all in good fun.

Isa LacunaIsa Lacuna avatar

Isa has finally gotten around to enrolling for her MA in Literary and Cultural Studies, and suffice to say she loves it with all her heart. Besides studying full-time, she is a freelance Art Director with aspirations of doing humanitarian work sometime in the future.

Isa is kind of a lurker in real life, but she loves hearing what other people have to say. You can add her her as a friend on the following gaming and social platforms:

  • Steam (isapocalypse)
  • PSN (isalacuna)
  • Tumblr

Khryss Miguelkhryss avatar

The phrase “small, but terrible” aptly describes Khryss, but despite her petite stature, her friends have learned early on not to mess with her. She graduated with a major in Philosophy, which gives her a broader perspective on things, but can also be a double-edged sword. She often overanalyzes the movies, shows, books, comic books, manga and anime she reads and watches.

Khryss used to work as a full-time web content writer, but she gave up working in the corporate world to start her own business. She’s now managing her own café and diner, while also serving as its in-house baker.

Kaye de Castro avatarKaren de Castro (Kaye)

Kaye is a former entertainment news writer who is working on a grand scheme that involves culinary school and starting a business. According to her college friend, Kaye is good at “putting [her] English major-trained way with words to good use” (translation: she’s very blunt and unapologetic).

When she is not writing, Facebook stalking, or cooking / munching on delicious food, you will find Kaye singing her lungs out to showtunes, practicing boxing and Muay Thai, or being a couch potato in front of her laptop while catching up on her TV series. Or you won’t find her – she’d be off to some place, and you’ll find out about her travels when she posts the photos once she gets back.
