    S2E7 - Larissa's Birthday Bash

    S2E7 - Larissa's Birthday Bash

    Larissa turned 20, so now we have her birthday bash! Keeping up with this exciting sorta-gameshow format we've been enjoying, today we are answering the questions that YOU asked us! We had a lot of really great questions and had lots of fun answering them, and even got a little deeper than we expected too. But that's ok, because a lot of this is reflection on where we've come from and where we are now, and it's amazing how time passes! Go wish Larissa a happy birthday, and tune into this weeks' episode!

    S2E6 - I Can Fix Her

    S2E6 - I Can Fix Her

    Welcome to the next and best game show, the Behind the Books episode where Larissa and LJ play kiss, marry, kill, with everyone's (but mostly ours) favorite trios! We take characters from books, tv, movies, and even our own wips, and delve into some serious (and probably unpopular) discussion on how we could pick -- if we even can. Play along at home, and let us know if you agree, because this was probably some of the hardest decisions of our lives!

    S2E5 - Writergram Politics: Enemies to Lovers

    S2E5 - Writergram Politics: Enemies to Lovers

    APRIL FOOLS! Or is it? We're just kidding, we don't know what day it is. We give our opinions on the enemies-to-lovers trope and other tropes associated with it (rivals-to-lovers supremacy!) in this Writergram Politics episode. LJ doesn't understand the academic rivals trope, and Larissa talks about her favorite good enemies-to-lovers, and somehow we commit the gravest miscommunication by mixing up Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver.

    S2E4 - Until We Meet Again

    S2E4 - Until We Meet Again

    In our chillest episode to date - Larissa and LJ talk about poetry, our processes of writing and titling poetry, and of course, get a little off topic. We always manage to bring it back, and even talk about some of our future poetry projects for a little extra sneak peek. Listen to us in real time figure out that this episode drops exactly a year from when we met in person for the first time - and let us know if you'd be interested in bonus content (so we can see each other again)!

    S2E3 - We! Love! Women! (Genres Pt. 2)

    S2E3 - We! Love! Women! (Genres Pt. 2)

    Welome back to part two of our genre episode, where we wrap up talking about all the fictional genres we possibly can! Of course, we get a little off track when LJ talks about some fun sports and both get sidetracked on true crime. We even tiptoe into some nonfiction genres and our favorite of all, poetry! But really, this episode we really just talk about women.

    S2E2 - Will We Convert to Fantasy? (Genres Pt. 1)

    S2E2 - Will We Convert to Fantasy? (Genres Pt. 1)

    In another accidental two-part episode, today Larissa and LJ talk about genres! We give some broad definitions and list them out, while also sharing some of our own unofficial rules when it come to naming a genre. We talk in length about fantasy and how representation and diversity have progressed in modern times, while of course also making fun of the British (because we're American - it's our duty to). For as much as we've said we don't like fantasy, we sure do spend most of the episode talking about it. Come back in two weeks to hear the part 2 for this episode!
