Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 24, 2022



So, fair warning, I was dead tired last night and forgot to write the blog post. I am slightly drunk now, so I've got no inhibition whatsoever. And I'm going to talk about whatever comes to mind. So, big shocker for anyone who knows me, I want to ...

I liked her. The trailer dropped and I didn't quite like the trailer, but I liked her.
