I'm just going to start this with a shout out to Steven Universe,
which is the best thing ever, because it is the best thing ever.
Three (ish) moms represent!
I grew up alongside Harry Potter
; I was 14 and whiny
when he was 14 and whiny, and it was great. Nowadays I enjoy
fanfiction more, mostly due to Harry
Potter and the Methods of Rationality
. (I want a disclaimer
here that acknowledges the extremely problematic elements of HPMOR
while still allowing me to enjoy it, especially since it's aimed at
people who are exactly like me, which is part of the problem
because part of the "exactly like me" it's aimed at is people who
used to be huge douchebags with a bit of a superiority complex who
are also white men. Anyway that's probably enough rant before I
even meet you.)
I enjoy the occasional campy film and I like self-referential works
a lot, but I've come recently to enjoy things on their own merits.
I like stories with dynamic characters, and I find them
I like fantastic worlds that are taken seriously by their occupants
and whose moral and economic consequences are explored, such as in
, Red Mars
, and Ancillary
And I like trope subversion and awareness, and intensity that
doesn't come from violence or sex, like in Steven Universe
, Adventure Time

I've been on a Homestuck
kick recently and I really
want people to talk about it with.
I prefer music that has some intellectual depth to it; They Might Be
and Bad Religion
come to mind.
But I also revel in mindless pop punk like Blink 182
and Green Day
, as well as things in the
middle like The
and Presidents of the
I enjoy lots of other kinds of music too but those are what I seek
out on my own.
I like bagels and pasta and rice and other flavorless things that
you put cheese on. (Seriously I get upset if there's too much
flavor in my food.) Recently I've been trying out MealSquares.
