From Michonne to Danai: A Fangirl’s Journey

The Walking Dead It’s funny—thinking about how involved I am now with this series and its fandom, considering when it first started, I wanted nothing to do with it.  Seriously, I was like, “Whatever.”  My former BFF convinced me to binge watch the first three seasons with her on Netflix one summer when we were […]

The Unusual Suspects: Badass Females of Film and TV

This list of five may seem random, but I assure you it’s not.  As a connoiseur of entertainment and fandom scholar, I chose these women specifically as they have typically been marginalized for one reason or another (i.e. color, age, stature, or the most obvious one, they’re women).  Therefore, I decided to make this list […]

The Part Where Michonne Is A Ghost

Why Richonne Is Important

I’ve been shipping Richonne [Rick & Michonne of The Walking Dead] since the moment they saw each other through that chain link fence, and she was covered in walker guts.  When they held hands on that couch, I assure you, my heart sang.  It sang.  And when they finally kissed, my soul soared. I hardcore […]

Why Richonne Haters Can Step To The Left

On the last episode of The Walking Dead [“The Next World”], Rick and Michonne [finally] consummated their love for each other. All of the writings were on the wall for impending Richonne, the scene was well done and yet… There are these murmurings: “Michonne is too strong.” “She’s like his sister.” “This means she’s probably […]
