Hyrule Historia 2.0: Gerudos and the Martial Race Myth

Inspired by James Mendez Hodes’s “Orcs, Britons, and the Martial Race Myth” While the Legend of Zelda series has been beloved since its early days, there’s a lack of critical analysis regarding it, perhaps because it’s only more recently that the perception of video games as an art form has become more mainstream. Now that… Read more Hyrule Historia 2.0: Gerudos and the Martial Race Myth

Project #2 The Red Cross Knight is a Murder Hobo.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/19oGKSEH7OK7Aacea9DPT4hA7oZT3RSCWCrk9r2PHahQ/edit Errour’s Home is a dungeon I created for dungeons and dragons 5e. I went into this thinking, what if Spenser was a dnd player. He views his character as perfect, he fights and kills just about everything he runs into, and everyone is out to get him. All in all, Spencer is a murder… Read more Project #2 The Red Cross Knight is a Murder Hobo.

Faerie Queene but Make it Pokémon

While reading the Faerie Queene, my mind latched onto the creatures of the story as they seemed far more interesting to me than the others of the story such as the knight. Not to be mistaken as complete disinterest in the story, merely just the lack… Read more Errour and the Knight

Spenser’s View on the Roman Catholic Church Through the Eyes of Classical Mythology

The Christian influences and criticism against the Roman Catholic Church are abundant and apparent in Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. However, there are other influences, themes, and motifs that are overshadowed by the heavy religious contexts and easily overlooked. Spenser not only drew inspiration from the intertwining religious and political climate of his time, but… Read more Spenser’s View on the Roman Catholic Church Through the Eyes of Classical Mythology

Shape-Shifter

Less bold than a sign, Still there is that lingering line. Invisible to the ignorant Making itself more tolerant. Breeding Reproducing Recreating More subtly than a white sheet Yet the young man is still not safe on the street. Oppressors walking amongst us  Your silence feds the beast Ignoring it Satisfies it Encourages it Nurtures… Read more Shape-Shifter
