Hi I never do this but I need to talk about this, it’s recommendation time:
If you liked/loved red,white and royal blue you’re going to love ‘young royals’ on netflix! It’s a swedish show about the second in line prince of Sweden. It’s all about love, drugs, sexuality and lots more. ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: TEENAGERS PLAYED BY ACTUAL TEENAGERS (at least 18+)
Personally I would say that it’s as if rwrb had a baby with the princess and the pauper but they abandoned the baby and it was raised by skam. I highly recommend it!!! Please check it out!

Native American Heritage Month: Fiction Authors
There There by Tommy Orange
Tommy Orange's wondrous and shattering novel follows twelve characters from Native communities: all traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow, all connected to one another in ways they may not yet realize. Among them is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, pulling his life together after his uncle's death and working at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil, coming to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American--grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, There There is at once poignant and unflinching, utterly contemporary and truly unforgettable.
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
One of the most revered novelists of our time - a brilliant chronicler of Native-American life - Louise Erdrich returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with The Round House, transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.
Riveting and suspenseful, arguably the most accessible novel to date from the creator of Love Medicine, The Beet Queen, and The Bingo Palace, Erdrich’s The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction - at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.
Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese
Saul Indian Horse has hit bottom. His last binge almost killed him, and now he’s a reluctant resident in a treatment centre for alcoholics, surrounded by people he’s sure will never understand him. But Saul wants peace, and he grudgingly comes to see that he’ll find it only through telling his story. With him, readers embark on a journey back through the life he’s led as a northern Ojibway, with all its joys and sorrows.
With compassion and insight, author Richard Wagamese traces through his fictional characters the decline of a culture and a cultural way. For Saul, taken forcibly from the land and his family when he’s sent to residential school, salvation comes for a while through his incredible gifts as a hockey player. But in the harsh realities of 1960s Canada, he battles obdurate racism and the spirit-destroying effects of cultural alienation and displacement. Indian Horse unfolds against the bleak loveliness of northern Ontario, all rock, marsh, bog and cedar. Wagamese writes with a spare beauty, penetrating the heart of a remarkable Ojibway man.
Winter Counts by David Heska Wanbli Weiden
A groundbreaking thriller about a vigilante on a Native American reservation who embarks on a dangerous mission to track down the source of a heroin influx.
Virgil Wounded Horse is the local enforcer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. When justice is denied by the American legal system or the tribal council, Virgil is hired to deliver his own punishment, the kind that’s hard to forget. But when heroin makes its way into the reservation and finds Virgil’s nephew, his vigilantism suddenly becomes personal. He enlists the help of his ex-girlfriend and sets out to learn where the drugs are coming from, and how to make them stop.
They follow a lead to Denver and find that drug cartels are rapidly expanding and forming new and terrifying alliances. And back on the reservation, a new tribal council initiative raises uncomfortable questions about money and power. As Virgil starts to link the pieces together, he must face his own demons and reclaim his Native identity. He realizes that being a Native American in the twenty-first century comes at an incredible cost.

What can I say? Best stream in a LONG time.
Dream was so soft tonight. He was clearly in a great mood. Happy Dream is best Dream.
He was having a good time with all of his friends, playing a new game, just being free. He even did it on main!
And of course, my absolute favorite thing in the world (I’m sure you can guess) his interactions with George 🥺
He sought him out in the lobby, was pretty darn distressed when he accidentally killed him, and kept searching for him after he disconnected. Even went to far as to tell him to join back (multiple times).
And of course we were blessed with a whole round of them, alone, together. Somehow the odds were in their favor and everyone died and left them alone.
I can’t even describe these types of moments as anything other than soft. Dream’s voice gets so low and he giggles a bunch. George is of course being a little psycho as usual. But Dream loves it. He can hear George make a joke across the game room and he laughs like the joke was for him and only him.
Dream and George wrote the book on adoration. Partners in crime, best friends, always.
