Hi, I'm Steph, a woman who is trying to figure out her place in the world. All while paying bills, finding a social life, and trying not to let herself get overwhelmed with stress and life's bullshit.
This is where you will find random rants about my life and (more commonly) various things I reblog from my fandoms. They are numerous and most prominently/recently include:
-Agents of SHIELD;
-Warehouse 13 (Bering and Wells!!);
-The Hunger Games;
-Once Upon A Time (mostly Swan Queen, some Sleeping Warrior and other pairings);
-Game of Thrones;
-Misc DC/Marvel stuff;
-Law & Order: SVU;
-Rizzoli & Isles;
