Not a Book! Thursday || She-Ra and the Princesses of Power S2

Not a Book

Fun fact for you this fine Thursday: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 2 came out on April 26th, just last week. Which was Lesbian Visibility Day.

I’m just saying, there is no way that was a coincidence.

ANYWAY, read on for my spoiler-free review of what’s arguably my current favorite cartoon!

Not a Book! Thursday || Knights of Pen and Paper

Not a Book

One of the toughest parts about playing tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons is getting the whole group together to actually play. But there’s a way to avoid that stress, and it comes in the shape of a video game! Actually, two games! Who knew?

But if you’re itching to play a TTRPG and don’t have a group, or tired of not being able to pull the whole party together, you might just want to hear what I have to say about the Knights of Pen and Paper games!

Not a Book! Thursday || Ōkami

Not a Book

By now, you’ve probably heard of Ōkami. It was originally released in 2006, and has since made itself a favorite to fans everywhere.

Today, you’re going to hear about it again, because I JUST FINISHED, AND I NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS WOLF AND THE SUN AND HER LITTLE BUG FRIEND FIGHTING THE FORCES OF DARKNESS IN THE LAND OF NIPPON.

Buckle up, folks. This one’s an AMAZING game. (One which I will not spoil because the experience is best, well, experienced, so read on without fear!)

Not a Book! Thursday || Ever Oasis

Not a Book

It’s been a while since I’ve talked video games on the blog, but since I finished another one over spring break, it’s time!

Plus, this is a cute RPG set in a desert with colorful environments, stunning music, and a variety of characters to explore with. It’s Ever Oasis, and it’s worth talking about!

Not a Book! Thursday || FaeCrate Bloodwitch Hangover Recovery Kit Unboxing

Not a Book

It’s time for another unboxing! I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of FaeCrate’s Bloodwitch Hangover Recovery Kits, and OH BOY was it exciting.

If you haven’t received yours yet for some reason, watch out, because there’s spoilers of all witchy sorts below the cut!

Not a Book! Thursday || The Dragon Prince S2

Not a Book

We’re up to about three weeks since the second season of The Dragon Prince came out on Netflix, which means I don’t feel too guilty about writing a review with spoilers. If you haven’t seen it, now’s your chance to back out before I lay out everything I had thoughts on, spoilers and all.

But if you’re up for a little bit of spoilery reviewing, ONWARD.

Not a Book! Thursday || TAZ: Commitment and TAZ: Dust

Not a Book

Bit by bit, I’ve been listening to more of The Adventure Zone. It’s been a little slow, between school and recovering from the brilliance of the Balance arc, but somehow, I’ve made it all the way through the Commitment and Dust arcs, leaving me right on the edge of Amnesty!

But let’s go back a little, and look at what’s happened in the mini-arcs since the finale of Balance.

Not a Book! Thursday || Earthlock

Not a Book

Near the end of the year, Nintendo happened to have some sweet sales, and I happened to have zero impulse control, and that’s how I got Earthlock for the Switch at half price! After that, the next couple weeks were a blur of final exams, papers, and this.

And was it worth it?

For the most part, yes!

Not a Book! Thursday || Voltron Season 8: It’s Finally Over

Not a Book

At last, we’ve made it. After about two and a half years, the evil is defeated, the end is here.

At last, I am free.

For those of you who aren’t aware, Voltron: Legendary Defender just released and wrapped its final season, and while I would have been thrilled to hear the words “eight seasons” back in June of 2016, at this point, I’m just glad it’s over for so many reasons. It has been a roller coaster of joy and disgust, especially after season seven, when the plot began to drag and the writers actually tried to defend their choice to lean into the bury your gays trope while also skirting around any real attempt at representation.

It wasn’t good. In fact, it was bad. Horrific, even.

And now that it’s over, I’m inclined to say that season eight has only made it worse. Spoilers abound ahead for those of you interested in learning why.
