My Game Sheroes and Heroes

This article is brought to you by the nineth Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the awesome writer Endalia over on Princess in a Castle: Tell us about some of your favorite protagonist/s and explain why.

Yes!! I love talking about my favourite protagonists. Video games have provided me with the vast majority of people I love, so this article is going to focus on video game characters.

My Marvelously Mundane Routine

This article is brought to you by the fifth Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Everwake: Everyone has specific rituals that they follow, tell us about one of yours.

My biggest personal ritual is probably the regular weekday routine I stick to very closely. Yeah. My offline life is honestly pretty boring, but I am actually quite grateful to still have most of the normality I took for granted in the pre-coronapocalypse era. Stability is where it’s at, yo!

Anyway, brace yourselves… here’s the super uninteresting typical weekday routine of a forever single asexual woman, and old crazy cat lady in training! On the weekends I pretty much just do whatever I feel like (usually sleep/video games and/or go on adventures with offline friends).

The Media That Made Me

This article is brought to you by the third Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the awesome blogger Mailvaltar: What are some key sources of media (games/movies/etc) that have shaped your worldview?

That’s a no brainer for me! Video games have been a huge part of my life ever since I was 5 years old. Age 32 is coming up on me way too quickly at the moment, and I don’t see me ever ditching video games. Maybe if I have some kinda mid-life crisis thing soon? Who knows!

We are how we see things, if that makes any sense. Our worldview defines our personal ethics and heavily influences how we react with the things happening around us.

Video game characters and their stories were a big influence on my young developing mind, that’s for sure. My views and who I am today would not be the same without that influence.

50 Shades of Dismay

This article is brought to you by the second Blaugust 2020 Promtapalooza topic presented by the new to me and awesome blogger Dragonray of Azerothian Life: What is some popular piece of content/media that seems to be universally loved that you have never been able to understand?

Game of Thrones was the first thing to pop into my mind, so I could definitely pick the same answer that Dragonray did. However, I decided to throw some shade (pun intended) at another seemingly popular piece of work that makes my skin crawl just thinking about it…

Yep. 50 Shades of Grey, the super popular erotic fantasy every woman apparently loves. Whelp. This woman sure as hell does not.

Fandom Fixing

Welcome to me partaking in yet another intensive blogging community event on a whim!

Well, it doesn’t need to be intensive since partakers can pick and choose what prompts to write articles on. I’m going to challenge myself to try all of the prompts in addition to the one I’m introing on August 19th, 2020. Why the hell not?

But yeah, I’m getting ahead of myself as usual.

For those unaware, Belghast of Tales from the Aggronaut wisely concluded that this year still sucks and another big community event was needed to boost morale. Now the Blaugust Promptapalooza thingy is happening!

Basically, 31 prompts will be dropped by various bloggers on different days in a sort of relay thing. People playing along can write articles for whatever prompts they want to. Sounds fun!

So here’s the first prompt asked by Belghast himself: If you could change anything about one of your core fandoms, what would it be?
