So colorful and unique in a fun sci-fi universe) but instead a world I'm invested in at the time that I'd love to insert myself in at a certain point in the plot to FIX things that go array.

So, if I had to choose right now, it would be the world of Grimm, because the first 4 1/2 seasons are fantastic, I've been marathoning it recently, but at that halfway point in season 4 it just tanked and has been almost unwatchable.

I'm still powering through to see how it ends, but I'd go right to that moment in season 4 when everything goes wrong to keep it at the sweet spot for as long as possible and fix where the characters made seriously odd and terrible choices.

Fixing things is sort of my deal, because as much as I put my characters through hell, I always have a happy ending. (less)

Mental Health in Fiction

I love fantasyhigh fantasy, urban fantasy, sci-fi, and superhero tales. Theyre all enchanting to me and one of the best vehicles for getting across some of the heavier real-life subjects that can often be difficult to discuss.After Vertigo is not my first foray into a superhero love story. That was my duology Lovesick, made up of Lovesick Gods and Lovesick Titans. In that story, I paired a supe... Read more of this blog post »
