Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft fanart - Couples

Welcome to the first Sharing Saturday! At least once a month you’ll find one of these posts popping up here at Ruby Wings Blog. I’ll be sharing some awesome stuff I have found from around the web. Sometime it will be art, sometimes fantastic websites, or geeky fashion. Naturally World of Warcraft fanart was top of the list. It is probably my biggest favourite folder on my DeviantArt account. There is just so much beautiful work out there which means that I am going to have to split this into several editions. So as it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I figured a couples edition was inRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Womances

Womances is a new one on me; it means as you can probably work out a woman and woman romance. [EDIT – Turns out I had that one wrong; womance is the equivalent of bromance, so it doesn’t need to be romantic at all. In the future I might do my favourite womances, which will take much much longer to narrow down to five. For now though enjoy!]  As a libra I’m a hopeless romantic and I believe love is love. So here are my favourite womances!   Bo/Tamsin from Lost Girl Tamsin: Your heart is both strong and gentle. You’re virtuous. Yet you’re aRead More →

OTP stands for One True Pairing; your favourite pairing in a fandom. Or in my case, one of many. I often ship more than one couple in a fandom, and even more than one partner for a character. I’ve got a full list of my ‘ships over at my website but here are my top five.

5 Fandom Friday - Late to the game fandoms

    Stargate SG-1 Top of the list has to be SG-1. My fiance and I had been eyeing this up for years before we both said ‘right, we need to watch this’. So several years after it had finished we started watching season 1 and went through every season over the next few years. We’ve still not watched the movies, and although we started Stargate Atlantis we never finished the first season. We will one day as we absolutely loved SG-1 and want to continue to explore the universe.   Leverage I’d been seeing adverts for this for a while before I finally gotRead More →

Reviews so far 2016

February is nearly here and with it brings the official start of SPILL the beans, my new monthly blog content. Each month I’ll be posting at least 5 different topics which you can read more about in this entry. I’ve been preparing content for it, but in the mean time here’s a mini review of the nail polishes (introduced here) that I’ve tried so far.   I originally tried the purple one first on the right in this image. Unfortunately it seems that it had been either previously opened or never closed properly. It was a pain to open and when I finally got itRead More →
