We each have a broad range of interests and it’s been fun learning about the insanity of each other’s fandoms. As we continue to share with each other, we figured it’d be entertaining to share with all of you too.Join us as we explore PJ’s worlds of writing, the publishing industry, anime & manga, science fiction & fantasy, and romance as well as OrD’s worlds of StarCraft II, League of Legends, eSports as an industry, and gaming.

And food.  Did they mention they like food?
