“Your new god.” – Your new god

I am Analyze, the psychology student and more serious of the two writers. Like a Greek god, I bestow a new article upon you all every 2 weeks. Here you can find all of the various articles I’ve written organized in an ever-so-neat way. My articles are primarily aimed at making you think about the complexity of the various things that I talk about, though with a sprinkling of sarcasm and dry wit. If you’re a fan of in-depth analysis of themes and symbolism, psychological analyses of characters, deconstruction and speculation on lore, rewritten scenes and a good dose of criticism then you’ve come to the right place. Brevity however, is not a vice I oft indulge in.

Read my diary (you naughty boy/girl) here or contact me by sending me a message at @AnalyticMadness.

Below are all of my articles listed in chronological order from newest down to oldest.
