Who are you?

My name is Ceara Heffernan and I have been running this blog since 2011. I live in Ottawa, Canada and I’m twenty-two years old. My pronouns are she/her. The original point of this blog still stands, but you may remember me from when I did True Blood recaps, (don’t ask).

I am an aspiring writer and YouTuber, and reading is my life. I love feminism, entertainment, lifestyle, representation, and libraries too. You may also remember Pinkfire Plays and perhaps even Pinkfire103, but we don’t really talk about that.

I’m a 2016 graduate of the Library and Information Technician program at Algonquin College. I have taught myself most things when it comes to social media and software such as video editing.

What the heck is a Reading Arsenal?

It’s not just two football teams in the United Kingdom.

I literally just got the name of my “brand” from a username generator somewhere. But I’d like to think it’s based on the quote from BBC’s Doctor Who:

“You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! This room’s the greatest arsenal we could have…arm yourselves!”

The Doctor (David Tennant, written by Russel T. Davies)

I also like to think my current TBR as of January 2019 is a Reading Arsenal. In my first videos, I would gesture widely as if to express something bigger than me was Reading Arsenal. I’m thinking back on that makes it seem more pretentious.
