Remember Beanie Babies?

At the risk of seeming single-focused here, this video is pretty great. It’s also more faithful to the book than the actual  movie was, which is surprising and refreshing in a fan-made film starring Beanie Babies!

Women of Thrones

Elsabette is a woman after all of our hearts here at Babes in the Woods. Watch this video as she refutes the many reasons the fandom chooses to harp on Sansa Stark.

Well, Keith Veronese at io9 has and now he’s used Dark Horse’s Star Wars Tales #19 to place the Star Wars Universe in our time line. Turns out, Han Solo was born right around the time the US was. That’s right. USA is team smuggler! Fuck yeah.

Faith Erin Hicks Nails it.
