I am a sponge, but clearly this is a lie. Fiction is my life and therefore my entire life is a lie, but that does not mean that you shouldn't trust me. I live in a hole where I voraciously consume books, movies, and music, and I never venture out of doors unless my home is on fire. This is my first blog, and I know approximately as much about Muggle technology as Arthur Weasley, so please forgive my shortcomings.
Recently I did a post (parts I and II) about my fictional heroes. There are quite a few characters that I look up to.
There are also a lot of characters that I…don’t.
As an oldest sibling, I often think about the way I interact with my sisters and whether or not I am being all that an older sibling should be. One way to feel better about myself is to compare myself to older siblings in books, Broadway shows, and movies/TV shows that are particularly awful.
As you may have noticed from the title of this post, you are reading the blog of someone who inspires awe- (that would be me, if you’re at all confused).

I wonder how many times I can use the word “awesome” in this post before something happens to me.

As you may or may not have noticed, this post has come earlier than usual. That is because for the summer I am going to post once a week (approximately every Friday) instead of once every two weeks. Huzzah!
It’s a given that I spend most of my time with people who live between the pages of books (or on a rectangular screen). I am overly invested in the lives of people who technically don’t exist in the real world, which is why I spend as little time there as possible. Facing a world where hobbits aren’t real is hard.
I care a lot about fictional characters for various reasons. Some of them are fun to laugh at and some of them are fun to hate and some of them are fun to cry about and some of them just need a thousand hugs and some psychological therapy.
In this post I will be talking about a few of the characters from books that inspire me to be a better human. These characters are my fictional heroes. Continue reading →
Anyone who has spent a substantial amount of time on this blog probably knows that many hours of my life are filled with barricades and strikes and French revolutions and teenage angst and Russian princesses with amnesia. Broadway musicals are hugely important to me. DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING? (If not, I’m sure we can sing a little louder.)
