The 2021 Good News Tag

This was inspired by the 2021 Book Tag by Phoenix @ Books with Wings. At first, I wanted to make a UK equivalent of it…but then I realised that 2021 was not a great year for the UK. In fact, the main news stories were deaths, murders and general chaos. I don’t want to make a tag about that. Instead, I want to make a tag about all the good news in 2021 that might have been lost among all the bad news.

I’d love to have the Disreputable Dog as my companion! She would be able to get me out of any kind of trouble and would just be good conversation.

Oichi definitely wouldn’t have been able to get far without the sentient AI, Medusa.

The neighbourhood of Bushwick is a fascinating melting pot of Black and Latino culture. No wonder Zuri wants to protect it.

I loved Lily as a character and I loved the fascinating insight into the period.

NB: Rose’s participation in the show has apparently inspired a 2000% increase in enrolments for one firm’s British Sign Language lessons and she is now backing a government bill to make BSL a recognised language (meaning users will have a legal right to an interpreter in many situations). If you haven’t seen Rose’s Couples’ Choice dance, go and watch it now!

Ling Chan isn’t just a kickass disabled character but a kickass asexual character too!
