I don't give a shit about Elon Musk. He's not the reason I'm leaving Twitter fandom. For so long, I've felt like something was missing; I've been dissatisfied, bored, and disillusioned by the whole experience. I even left fandom for a long time, three years. I returned because I missed it; I missed writing fanfiction.
Welcome to Xenodike.com. It’s a merger of my fandom LiveJournal, which I started in 2005, and a book blog I started here on WordPress in 2017. That’s why, despite this being my first official post here, you’ll find entries going back almost seventeen years.
Don’t be a Drama-Cunt or How to be a Laidback Fangirl
At the moment, everywhere I turn, fandom seems to be filled with drama. I know it doesn't feel like it, but those of us who've been in fandom a long time know i's nothing new—drama comes and goes in waves. My approach is to stay out of it; I don't engage in bullshit, I don't … Continue reading Don’t be a Drama-Cunt or How to be a Laidback Fangirl
Xenodikes Fandom Philosophy
I keep talking about the "old days" over on my Twitter, how much I dislike social media fandom, and how we should all migrate back to Livejournal. Well, maybe I should put my money where my mouth is and post something to this journal. I thought, maybe, I should do a reintroduction post; introduce myself … Continue reading Xenodikes Fandom Philosophy
Why I don’t like Netflix The Witcher
This post was updated in May 2020 As a longtime fan of The Witcher games and books, I heard about the Netflix adaptation early on. Initially, I was excited. By the time the trailer released, my hype had turned to indifference. I decided I wasn't going to watch it. Then the show exploded. Surprised and unsure, I thought maybe my initial … Continue reading Why I don’t like Netflix The Witcher
Why I’ll Never Write a One-Star Review
Despite having a pretty good idea about what kind of books I gravitate to, occasionally, I come across books that I think I'll enjoy but don't. Other times I tell myself I'm missing out on great books because I'm so set in my ways with what genres I like, and I should try something new; sometimes it works other times it doesn't.
Fuck Your Guns
Dear America, My heart bleeds for all those affected by today's horrific shootings in Connecticut. My question is this... How many more children are going to have to die before you understand that not everyone should have the right to own a gun? And yes, people kill people I know that, but it is a … Continue reading Fuck Your Guns
Do We Really Care?
I rarely get into politic or current events here on my journal, mostly because I see it as my sanctuary from the world and also because we are all different people outside of these cyber walls so our opinions on politic etc. are destined to be quiet different in many areas and honestly, I have … Continue reading Do We Really Care?
I just had to do a quick post about the horrible events that has affected Haiti. The news report is up to over 100.000 dead, ONE-HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE!!! And that’s now, that’s not even taking into account all the people buried under buildings, all the injured that might not survive their injuries. Not to mention … Continue reading Haiti

Queen of the Damned
A quick RL update. In about an hour i'll be heading to work for another lovely 27 hour shift...can't wait *sob*. So I'll be gone for a while since it usually takes me about a day to recover my ability to think, write and engage in any type of activity that requires brain activity after … Continue reading Queen of the Damned
