Character Crush: Olive and Rosemary Penderghast from “Easy A”

Welcome to the end. The end of these (Fictional) Women’s History Month posts, that is! Though they may be lighter fare, I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey so far!

I’m closing out this series of posts by talking about characters from what is definitely one of my favorite movies, Easy A. I actually debated writing about these women because it felt too obvious, but my bestie and Super Hubs both feel like this is a severely underrated movie that doesn’t get enough love, so here we are! I also felt like it would be hard to talk about movie characters without just talking about the women who portray them, but I guess if I was able to get through the TV characters without falling into this issue, I guess I can manage here!

Shall we get to it? Continue reading “Character Crush: Olive and Rosemary Penderghast from “Easy A””

Character Crush: Susannah Dean from the Dark Tower series

Salutations, beautiful people! It’s ya girl Nikkie, and I see you’ve come back for seconds of my femme-filled Character Crush posting. Well, who am I to disappoint?

The answer is someone who frequently disappoints but is trying really hard not to!

Today’s helping of fictional women’s history is brought to you courtesy of my rereading of the Dark Tower series in preparation of the movie coming out this summer. As far as I know, she’s not appearing in the movie (which raises a lot of questions; I will hold my tongue until an official trailer comes out), but she’s a big part of the novels.
That’s right. I’m talking about Mrs. Susannah Dean, formerly Odetta Holmes/Detta Walker and one of the last gunslingers.

Let’s palaver.

Character Crush: Ladies on the Small Screen

Hello, hello, friends. Happy Women’s History Month from your favorite MWB woman. And I don’t even mind that I’m the only one here, thus leaving you with very few options for favorites.
I’ve finally managed to drag myself out of a work-exhausted stupor, which was coupled with an “adjusting to new medication” fog, to make a glorious return to the blogsophere. Well, I won’t say glorious; this is going to be extremely off the cuff. The point is that I’m here!

Because it’s Women’s History Month, I thought it apropos that all my posts this month be about fictional women in TV, books, and movies that I’ve enjoyed. Then I thought, Oh! I should do these on Wednesdays because of #WomanCrushWednesday. Then I realized it was a Thursday when I thought of it, and already the second Thursday of March, so I was already behind. So I decided I’d wait till today and talk about enough ladies to make up for the deficit. Which means I’m starting with my favorite characters from television.

Let’s jump in!
