Fiction: Why it became the trustworthy role model

Recently I was invited to watch ‘the Hobbit’ at the cinemas by the two biggest Tolkien fanatics currently living in the North of England, and who are currently my roommates.

Frankly I didn’t hate it, but while we do have quite a geeky household I’m more into my SciFi, and not so much the Middle Earth fanatic. However what I did observe was that amongst the Dragons, and Elves, and Orks, there seem to be a large interest in the geography of this universe. (How else could my housemates pick out the missing in links and characters in the LOTR and the hobbit trilogy?)

Anyway why am I talking about Tolkien?

Fiction defines childhood; it matures with individuals, and seems timeless. Also due to the development of film it has only expanded across a larger audience because it removes that sense of elitism that you have within literature.

I’ll remember that for Next Year…

Anyhow let’s get on to topic one that I’ve held off for a while.

Ever wondered how men always complain that all the girls they have dated are crazy.

God and his cruel tricks. Giving you women and then making them crazy…

Every Christmas I usually go down to meet my Grandmother alongside with the rest of my male orientated family. (The usual excuse for…

Firstly I have to apologise, because with the run up to Christmas I have been bogged down University. I’ve had little time for myself as it is, but I get aggravated, because the amount of ideas that I’ve wanted to write has been horded to the point my mind is like a compact attic.

Nevertheless the subject I’ve chosen to day is a fairly upbeat, and positive subject.

It’s also one that never gets mentioned, but it is very important.

Nearly a month ago Emma Watson was paid a neat little sum to make a speech regarding feminism. Now I don’t really care for the actress, however I found the point she was making was actually rather profound. (Though to think she wrote her own speech would ignore the fact that this was meant to be a big televised, featured continuously on social mead, and you tube. I wouldn’t rely solely on…
