Representing heroism

I love fantasy. I love magic and elves and dragons and shit. I’m the girl who would love to spend a weekend watching entire extended edition Lord of the Rings trilogy. I know Red Sonja is a piece of shit but I’ll watch it whenever it’s on TV anyway (when I have access – which is only when I’m visiting my family in Virginia). I love the fuck out of Willow.

Eragon and the D&D movie can kiss my ass for being fantasy movies for people who hate fantasy.

It’s funny that I bring up Willow too, since it touches upon something that, as a fantasy genre buff and a roleplayer, has been a concern of mine for a while: the overwhelming straight White cis maleness of heroes.

We want to be heroic too!!!
