When The Magic Wears Off: A J.K. Rowling & Harry Potter Post

This is not a rant. This will be concise and to the point.

Since June, a Twitter storm swirled around J.K. Rowling for her tweets regarding transgender issues. Three months later, the storm is nearing Category 5. I won’t detail the timeline of this storm, but here is a link to the tip of the iceberg. You can decide if you want to dig deeper.

Jade Goes To Comic Con in 2019!

Last year, the best friend and I crossed something significant off our bucket lists: Attend New York Comic Con. This year, I crossed off another thing: Cosplay! Cosplay, or costume play, is the act of dressing up as a fictional character.
