Hello, internet. I’m Vrai, a writer who dabbles in speculative fiction, narrative nonfiction, flash fiction, and reviews. In between all of that, I has a healthy adoration for overanalyzing pop culture. This blog is a bi-weekly (currently Mondays and Fridays) source of essays, recaps, and updates on my professional publications.
As a lover of stories I’ve been compelled to seek them in every medium – as such, the focus of the analysis here is applied to subjects ranging from anime to film, western animation, videogames, literature, and theater. A good story can be found in any form, so long as it can speak to an audience. While I have a soft spot for examining issues of gender and sexuality, that’s by no means the exclusive domain of the discussion – in fact, you might find anything from narrative structure to character studies and far-fetched conspiracy theories. Variety, as they say, is the spice of life.
