There may be nothing we here at love more than a girl gang, seeing how as we fancy ourselves one such community. Girl gangs, which can and do include nonbinary folks, are all about kicking ass and looking out for each other, thwarting the patriarchy just by daring to love one another as we are here and now.
Back in September, Brie Larson set out to break the internet with news of the Captain Marvel film. While some of us foolishly thought that meant the trailer would be appearing (I’m looking at myself, in particular), the first images of Captain Marvel didn’t disappoint.
A change is coming for the MCU’s Avengers and with that change comes opportunity. No, I’m not talking about Thanos whisking half of the universe into non-existence. I’m talking about the end of Phase 3, which coincides with some actors’ contracts ending.
In the golden age of television, there are more shows than any person could possibly keep up with. That’s why your friendly neighborhood FANGRRLS have pulled together a list of the queerest episodes of one of our favorite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Whether you’re a first-time viewer or a die-hard mega-fan, these episodes will make your heart sing with queer glory (as opposed to queer icon Glory) — and with so much TV to watch, why not cut to the good (read: queer) stuff?
Good fantasy novels have a way of sweeping the reader away to a magical place. Great fantasy novels do the same but allow real life to creep into the plot, themes, and characters. Of course, all books are a reflection of the world the author lives in, but only the best fantasy novels use that truth to their advantage.
There’s a certain sex appeal bad boys have. Maybe it’s the devil-may-care attitude. Maybe it’s the way their hair is oh so carefully disheveled. Maybe it’s the fact that unlike nice guys, you know exactly what you’re getting when you find yourself attracted to a bad boy. Or, maybe it’s just the promise that you’ll wake up in the morning hating yourself a little, but having had one hell of a night.
Life can be challenging when you live outside the gender binary. Sometimes, it feels like a constant barrage of having to clarify one’s pronouns, justify one’s outfit, and be cautious about every breath drawn in public. Add to that the almost complete lack of nonbinary representation in media and you’ve got a big depressing can of ugh.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow opened Season 4 with a big queer splash, complete with a glittery goo-spewing, homicidal unicorn.
While “The Virgin Gary” is particularly rainbow-filled, metaphorically and literally, Legends has already distinguished itself as being . Well, and time travel. (For those of you who are new to the show, you are about to be living your best life.)
The critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen is being adapted for the screen again. (Thankfully, this time a certain destroyer of worlds—or, at least the DCEU—will not be involved.)
Rather than going for a straight-up adaptation of the twelve issues that make up Watchmen, writer and executive producer Damon Lindelof has declared that the HBO TV series will be a “remix,” comparing his series to the TV adaptation of Fargo.
The story within the story, or mise en abyme as the French would say, is a trope at least as old as the Mahabharata, which harkens back to 400 BCE. That trope has continued through today, taking many forms including the TV show within the TV show, and there’s nothing we FANGRRLS love more than a meta-gag about science fiction and fantasy TV.
The 13th Doctor has finally made her glorious arrival and we here at FANGRRLS couldn’t be more excited. In honor of her, and to catch up a few of our FANGRRLS who haven’t yet experienced Doctor Who, our resident Whovians will be helping some of our less TARDIS-fluent FANGRRLS get up to speed on their favorite Doctor.
What is it about werewolves that makes them so damn seductive? Maybe it’s the tortured soul angle. Maybe it’s the sense that they’re one full moon (or not, depending on the lore) from ripping you apart — but like, in a spicy, fun way. Actually, you know what? It's probably a combination of the uncontrollable animal appetite and all the rampant nudity.
One of the beautiful things about the internet is how it has allowed creators of all kinds to find their audiences and then provide those audiences with the content they desire. When it comes to the world of comics, the internet has allowed creators who might not have built a platform, or who have outright been silenced and excluded from mainstream comics, to tell their stories in their full glory through the medium of webcomics.
Before Matt Groening’s new animated TV show, Disenchantment, premiered, Groening made the interview rounds, enticing viewers with his medieval fantasy story and its unique take.
“If there are any overt politics, it's that it's got a definite feminist point of view," Groening told Exclaim. "And having a woman at the center of the show is just, for me, a refreshing way to tell stories."
In Steven Universe, when a magical, pink lion forces Steven to explore the pocket dimension inside his glorious mane, he finds a VHS tape left behind by his mother, Rose Quartz. The VHS is labeled “For Steven,” so he grabs it and rushes to watch the video.
It opens on familiar sights: the beach where Steven plays, the temple where he and the Crystal Gems live, and his father goofing around. The video is narrated by an unknown feminine voice, but when the camera is turned around...
