Bell Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ Rings True

"Speak low if you speak love..." but goshdarnit, I'm going to speak up because I'm in love with Bell Shakespeare's 2019 production of 'Much Ado About Nothing' | A witty, sharp, and daring take on Shakespeare's classic tragic romantic comedy, this is the definitive Much Ado About Nothing production for this day and age.

14419. Daylight Savings

14419. Daylight Savings | Based on the #NaPoWriMoxNidhScraps prompt: 'Imagine you could bottle sunshine. What would you taste if you had a sip?' | I've always been fascinated with glass bottles, so I used them to pour a little streetcorner alchemy. Don't be fooled by the title; appearances can be deceiving. #NaPoWriMo


Oh god, not our neighbours. Oh God, give us courage to unite. Oh, God, give us strength to stand firm against this hate.

Good lord, it's already March! Yikes. Sorry about the absence, everyone. It's been a super chill January, and a busy February on my end (again, a reminder that I am a uni student- and a third year, no less). I've also been wrestling with Writer's Block for the last month or so, so we'll see... Continue Reading →

That Sentimental Feeling

Call me sentimental, but hey, "it's that time of year, when the world falls in love", and bands together in the spirit of Christmas, the holiday season, and giving. Wishing you all a happy holiday season filled with peace, joy and love.

The Tale End

"The play's the thing..."|The doors are open, the stage is set, and the players are in the wings. Riddle me this: Are you ready for a night at the theatre?

Ace in the Hole

[Based on the following prompt from writing-prompt-s on tumblr] "Being a protagonist is a tough job, especially when your narrator keeps trying to kill you in more and more imaginative ways. Unfortunately for them, you are good at one thing and one thing only - staying alive."

Fernweh. Hiraeth…

In honour of Stephen Hawking. #140318 | Fernweh (German): Feeling homesick for a place you have never been to. | Hiraeth (Welsh): A particular type of longing for the homeland or the romanticised past...

41115. Valuable

Or, 'Why Hades understands true love: a Poem' | #041115 |{I like to think that despite their disastrous 'courting period' (and after a couple of millenia to let the animosity to subside), Hades and Persephone end up becoming the poster couple for marriage (much to Hera's chagrin)} | Happy Valentine's Day... But may you be blessed with love every day of your life!

A Wonder to Behold

In which I have a lot of feelings about how beautiful 'Wonder' is and I attempt to put them into words. | Less a review, more an opinion piece | (But regardless of my opinion, do go and read/see it anyways!)

That Time of Year

"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air." - W.T. Ellis
Wishing everybody a happy holiday season! And never forget to spread kindness wherever you go!

Kill ‘Em With Kindness

To the Muses

Happy One-Year Anniversary to #TheTrepverterEffect! | Here's to those often elusive (but ultimately worth-waiting-for) Muses! May we always find them and keep them in our sights!

To the Friends I Know I’ll Keep

I recently read a little article called ‘To the Friends I’m Scared to Lose’ . It reminisced about the memories of every high school squad, and it particularly struck a chord with my little group. As can be discerned from the title, it acknowledged how friends can drift away from each other after high school, and... Continue Reading →

A Reminder

With all the things going on right now in the world, it's hard for me to sit here and selfishly talk about myself. So, in the spirit of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy', I would like to remind everyone, as much as possible, "DON'T PANIC". (I had actually written this little poem earlier this year, but...

Janus and Hecate

A Poem by Y.L.M. (#271015) "It's the beginning, I'm sure!" Is it? a voice sneaks in. Or is it the end? Janus smiles at you with his two bearded faces Which one is the nice twin? Good or evil? Janus says. Yes or no? Beginning or end? His head swivels back and forth, regarding you... Continue Reading →
